SHP Alumna Tierna Davidson Heads to Olympics

This marks Davidson’s second time playing in the Olympics

Tierna Davidson (SHP ’16) has been named to the 18-player Olympic roster for the US women’s national soccer team (USWNT), joining Team USA athletes seeking gold in Paris 2024.
Davidson played on the USWNT at the 2021 summer Tokyo Olympics; the team ultimately cinched bronze, beating out Australia with a 4-3 victory. Tokyo was her first appearance in Olympic competition.
Collectively, Davidson’s three seasons playing at SHP are unparalleled: each year her team advanced to Central Coast Section Championship games, twice capturing section titles. She led her college alma mater Stanford University to the 2017 NCAA Championship, earned 58 appearances with the USWNT, and was the youngest player on the champion USA team at the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup in France.
“We are so excited and, of course, extremely proud of Tierna,” said her father, Greg Davidson, who is also a math teacher at SHP. “To fight back from her injuries and challenges during the past couple of years is quite impressive and says a lot about her. We are looking forward to cheering on Tierna and her teammates in France as they strive for gold!”
Davidson joins at least three other United States Sacred Heart Network schools’ alumnae/i at the Paris Olympics—Stone Ridge School of the Sacred Heart in Bethesda, Maryland alumnae Katie Ledecky, Phoebe Bacon, and Erin Gemmell, all swimmers.
