“Erin came to Centre wanting to accomplish several things. The first was to make the national tournament and the second was to become an All-American,” said Centre coach Jay Hoffman. “I guess you could say Erin is taking a long nap and waiting for all her dreams to come true. She can now wake up from that amazing four-year career of hers and enjoy what she has done.

“Right from the start, Erin has been able to score goals, and plenty of them. She also has been able make herself a dominant presence on the field. There are many things that Erin does extremely well. The one thing that gets unnoticed is how she can take a training environment and turn it into an environment that breeds success.”

Menard was also named to the NSCAA/adidas NCAA Women’s D-III All-Great Lakes Region first team as well as the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference first team.
