The Week in Notre Dame Athletics: Wrapping Up

Go Irish. Beat everyone. - fishoutofwater

Notre Dame student athletes competed fearlessly this past week, earning wins in baseball and rowing.

Without further ado, we bring you the results of the last week's Irish match-ups.

_____

Lacrosse: The no. 2 men's team (11-5) fell this past Sunday to no. 7 Duke, 12-11, in the NCAA quarterfinals, bowing out of the tournament and drawing a strong season to a close. The heartbreaker saw the opponents tie 9 times, including at halftime and at the close of the third quarter. The Irish led with just over 3 minutes remaining, but Duke scored 2 late, unanswered goals to claim the victory. It was a tough loss, but a very good season for the Irish.

NDFIDM took a look behind the scenes at the Irish on the road for the tournament.


As is tradition, the senior lacrosse players were honored in an on-the-road commencement ceremony. Congratulations to all the new alumni.

Baseball: The no. 7-seed Irish (31-23, 10-14) went 1-2 in their 3-game series at Cincinnati this past weekend, falling 9-5 in the first match, routing the Bearcats 9-1 in the second, then dropping the last regular season game, 11-5.

The Irish next play Seton Hall this afternoon (Wednesday) to kick off Big East tournament play. If they win, they'll play again on Thursday, then Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, when the Big East Championship is played in Clearwater, FL.

Softball: The Irish (43-15, 20-4) finished their season with two hard-fought losses at the Lexington Regional of the NCAA championship. Last Friday, the Irish fell 4-3 to Virginia Tech in a heartbreaker. Saturday, they were eliminated from the tournament with a loss to Marshall, 3-1. Early in the game, pitcher Laura Winter did become just the third Irish player to earn over 300 strikeouts in a season, notching 306 total. We're sorry to see their season draw to a close, but congratulations to the Irish - Big East conference and tournament champions - for an excellent year.


_____

Rowing: The no. 11 Irish won their tenth consecutive Big East conference championship this past weekend and their coaching staff earned top conference honors to cap a great season. They earned second in the only race they didn't win outright, coming in just over 2 seconds behind Louisville in a nearly 8 minute race. Notre Dame won five our of six final contests in the championship, finishing 22 points ahead of runner-up no. 19 Louisville, 151-129.


The Irish next head to the NCAA championships on May 31st-June 2nd in Indianapolis.

_____

Track & Field: The Irish next compete in the NCAA east regional preliminary round of the NCAA tournament this Friday through Sunday, then, depending on their results, in the tournament itself on June 5-8.

_____

Tennis: Members of both the men's and women's Irish teams compete in the NCAA singles championship beginning today (Wednesday) in Champaign, IL, through the weekend. Best of luck to all.
