United States Women's National Team star Rose Lavelle, who starred for Cincinnati United Premier and Mount Notre Dame High School, now has a cow named after her.
Forward Madison FC - the USL League One team in Madison, Wisconsin - held a fan contest to name a calf delivered by its team cow, Lionela Bessi.
Rose Cowbelle was the winner.
Lavelle's reaction via Twitter:
In November, Lavelle's goal in the 41st minute of USWNT's first match since March gave the team a 1-0 lead against the Netherlands in a 2-0 win on Friday.
Lavelle was in New York City for a ticker-tape parade last year to celebrate USWNT's FIFA Women's World Cup title when she tweeted that video of Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden hippo Fiona reminded Lavelle of her own halftime hydration routine.
Lavelle scored the team's second goal during USWNT's win in the final against the Netherlands, earning the Bronze Ball - given to the tournament's third-most outstanding player.
