    When you think lacrosse, central Indiana is certainly not the first location that comes to mind. On Sunday however, four teams and their fan bases invaded Indy for the NCAA quarterfinals. On the Colts’ turf at Lucas Oil Stadium, Denver overcame an early 6-0 deficit to top North Carolina in a 12-11 thriller, before Notre…

    The police overtook us about 10 miles outside of Indianapolis.  Four cars approached our bus and the sirens came on. No, we were not being arrested. It was our police escort, coming to guide us to the hotel that will be our home for the next 3 days. Notre Dame Men’s Lacrosse left for Indianapolis…

  9. Notre Dame Primed For Postseason Success

    May 1, 2013, 11:13 AM EDT

    Barbara Sullivan, on of the best defenders on the Irish squad, is also a Tewaarton Trophy Nominee.

    The Irish put a capper on an impressive regular season Saturday in the home finale with a 14-5 victory over Marquette. The win couldn’t have come at a more opportune time for the team, as Notre Dame was able to lick its wounds and recover from a three game losing streak. During that streak, Notre…

    May 1, 2013, 10:59 AM EDT

    Goalie John Kemp had his hands full fending off shots from the Syracuse Orange in the Big City Classic game.

    After losing to Syracuse in Saturday’s road matchup against the nation’s seventh best team, Notre Dame gets another shot at the Orange in a neutral setting. Notre Dame was unable to get into any sort of offensive rhythm in its 10-4 loss, especially during the second half of the game. The Orange scored nine goals…

    The top-ranked men’s lacrosse team and junior attack John Scioscia have turned some heads this season. Scioscia has come from under the radar and emerged as the fifth leading scorer for the 10-2 Fighting Irish after not scoring in his first two seasons on the team. Scioscia’s remarkable journey has allowed him to net 14…

    The fifth-ranked Irish are off to their first 10-0 start since 2003-2004 and the first in the Christine Halfpenny era, and they have punished opponents using an up-tempo offensive attack that put up 13 goals on Sunday against Cincinnati. Just over the halfway point in the season, the Irish are starting to get into the…

    By Rich Hidy ’16 Start the engines of the hype train because it may very well soon be arriving in South Bend. The women’s lacrosse team is now 8-0 following a routine-looking 14-2 victory last Sunday over BIG EAST foe Villanova. The 14 goals were the third most scored by the team all season as…

    By Rich Hidy ’16 The top spot in the country proved to be fleeting for the Irish. The team only held the position for a week following a high-octane offensive outpouring last Saturday when the Irish stumbled against St. John’s 12-10. However, Notre Dame bounced back with a dominant performance on the road against Marquette…

    In their second Top 25 matchup of the season, the Irish exceeded their high level of competition with a 9-6 victory over nineteenth-ranked Rutgers after nine days without playing a game. Although the temperature was just above freezing, the Irish played outside in the frozen tundra of Arlotta Stadium amongst a number of bundled up…

    Two more Top 10 wins vaulted the third-ranked Irish to 5-1 on the year. Notre Dame notched yet another tight victory against then fifth-ranked Denver at Mile High Stadium, 13-12 in overtime, and followed that performance with a much more convincing 9-4 victory on Wednesday inside Loftus over Ohio State.
