Classroom

Glenn owns a 3.45 GPA while majoring in health promotion and behavioral science. She was a 2017 United Soccer Coaches Third-Team Scholar All-American for her work in the classroom. She has also been a three-time Academic All-Big 12 selection, a six-time Big 12 Commissioner’s Honor Roll inclusion and a three-time member of the Athletics Director’s Honor Roll. Glenn has also been a nominee for CoSIDA Academic honors and a nominee for Big 12 Fall Scholar-Athlete of the Year.

Character

Glenn entered her senior season as one of the unquestioned leaders of the team and as the “captain” of the midfield through her experience. She helps set an example for the other members of the Texas soccer program through her strong work ethic both on and off the pitch.

Community

Perhaps even more impressive than Glenn’s on the field credentials have been her off the field efforts during her time on the Forty Acres. She has been involved with a myriad of community projects including: “Operation School Bell” where she served as a personal shopper for elementary-age children invited to shop for school clothes, “Orange Santa” where she collected toys and gifts to benefit members of the University community, “Supply the Teachers” where Glenn helped fill caring boxes with school supplies for the 6,000 teachers who work in the Austin Independent School District to say thanks for their hard work, UT & Me National Women & Girls in Sports Day and the TexasTHON to benefit the Dell Children’s Miracle Network.

Competition

On the pitch, Glenn, a 2017 United Soccer Coaches All-South Region and All-Big 12 Conference First Team selection, has quarterbacked the midfield throughout her career. She has played in 56 career matches so far and owns career totals of nine goals and eight assists for 26 total points. Through the first five matches of her senior campaign, Glenn leads the Longhorns and is among the Big 12 leaders in assists with four (Texas started 4-0-1 overall in 2018). Her best season to date came as a junior as Glenn finished with a career-high five goals (three match-winners) and three assists while helping Texas to a school-record 11-0 start and to the NCAA Sweet 16 for only the fourth time in school history.
