Where are they now: Natalie Kulla

Natalie Kulla is the best goalkeeper in Marquette women’s soccer history and one of the best in college soccer history as well.

Kulla graduated last season and finished her tenure as probably the most decorated female athlete in Marquette history.

Kulla is a two-time Big East Goalkeeper of the Year and All-Big East First Team player and was called up to the under-23 U.S. women’s national team.

The all-time shutouts leader at Marquette with 43, Kulla is also second all-time in wins (58) and fourth in saves (220), and she has the best goals against average in program history, conceding 0.74 per match. She made 84 starts as a Golden Eagle and started 69 in a row to end her career.

Kulla was at Valley Fields last Sunday to see the Golden Eagles play for the first time this season. She’s found time tough to come by nowadays. The St. Louis native is now working back in her hometown for Boeing as a civil engineer.
