Amber Munerlyn was all over the field in her second game back from injury — after she took an elbow in the face in UNC’s Sept. 15 match against Notre Dame. She’ll need to wear her splint for at least another month. All the while, UNC coach Anson Dorrance looked on from the sidelines, amazed at her effort. “Her jaw could fall out,” Dorrance said. “She plays with a wonderful sort of fearlessness.” (Daily Tar Heel)

Josh Rice has overcome many obstacles in UNC soccer career

Dunn and Ohai: Carrying The Weight

It's easy to see why Anson Dorrance may not want to have each player compare herself to the likes of previous generations which include names like Mia Hamm, Kristine Lilly, and Heather O'Reilly, to name just a few.
