    A remarkable athlete and student

    I would hope someone with more knowledge than I would pay tribute on this board-maybe Jim Sumner- to Becca Ward, one of the most extraordinary athletes in Duke's history-and a model student, to boot. There is a nice description of her career at GO DUKE, but she deserves high praise for being what Duke athletics are-and should be-all about......

    Anyone?

    Until Jim does her justice:

    National champion. Gave up a shot at Olympic gold to be a student at Duke with her friends from Duke. Amazing.

    Phenomenal role model.

    Three time NCAA Champion. Two bronzes in Beijing (individual and team). 2006 World Champion. Definitely an amazing Dukie.
