UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME History •

The University of Notre Dame du Lac was founded in 1842 by Father Edward Sorin. Adjacent to South Bend, Ind., and nestled next to Saint Mary’s and Saint Joseph’s Lakes, the University was started with $310 in cash and three log buildings in disrepair. Notre Dame would establish many firsts for Catholic institutions of higher learning, including the first Catholic law school, the first Catholic engineering school and the first student residence with private rooms, Sorin Hall.

Students •

Graduate and undergraduate students at the University come from all 50 states and more than 100 countries worldwide.

Notre Dame’s graduation rate of 95 percent is exceeded by only Harvard and Princeton.

Notre Dame’s 98 percent retention rate between the freshman and sophomore years is among the highest in the country, thanks in large part to the University’s unique First Year of Studies Program.

Academics •

The University is organized into four colleges - Arts and Letters, Science, Engineering and the Mendoza College of Business - the School of Architecture, the Law School, the Graduate School, six major research institutes, more than 40 centers and special programs and the University library system.

Notre Dame is among a select group of schools that ranks in the top 25 on the U.S. News & World Report survey of the nation’s top colleges and in the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics Directors’ Cup for overall success in athletics.

Community service is a hallmark of Notre Dame. About 80 percent of Notre Dame students engage in some form of voluntary community service during their years at the University, and at least 10 percent devote a year or more after graduation to service in the United States and around the world.

The University’s Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) annually sends 180 recent graduates to teach in some 100 understaffed Catholic schools in the southern, southeastern and southwestern United States and in South Bend. A national model, ACE has received the Higher Education Award from the Corporation for National Service for leadership in using national service resources through AmeriCorps.

Notre Dame has one of the highest undergraduate residential concentrations of any national university, with 80 percent of its students living in 27 residence halls.

Alumni

Notre Dame is rated among the nation’s top 25 institutions of higher learning in surveys conducted by U.S. News and World Report,  Princeton Review, Time, Kiplinger’s, and Kaplan/Newsweek. Notre Dame ranks fifth in a listing of “dream schools” in a survey of parents by the Princeton Review. The top five are Princeton, Stanford, Harvard, New York University and Notre Dame.

Service

The medical school acceptance rate of the University’s preprofessional studies graduates is 80 percent, almost twice the national average.

Notre Dame ranks first among Catholic universities in the number of doctorates earned by its undergraduate alumni - a record compiled over some 85 years.

The University’s network of 270 alumni clubs -- including  60 international clubs -- is the most extensive in higher education.

With graduates renowned for their loyalty and generosity, Notre Dame annually ranks among the top five in percentage of alumni who contribute to the University.

In recent years, Notre Dame alumni have won a Nobel Prize in medicine, a Pulitzer Prize in journalism, and an Emmy Award for contributions to television technology.

Key to the program is the fact that it is not run by the athletics department but by the University administration.

Notre Dame has had unprecedented academic success among its athletes, consistently ranking among the top NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision schools in graduation rates and academic progress.

THIS IS NOTRE DAME

The University of Notre Dame When Father Edward F. Sorin started his school in the northern Indiana wilderness, he had only $300, three log buildings badly in need of repair and a far-sighted vision of establishing a liberal arts school to meet the growing educational needs of the frontier. He dreamed of building a great university, and in 1842, he founded the University of Notre Dame du Lac. Over the years, the University of Notre Dame du Lac would evolve into a preeminent place for Catholic thought. While becoming one of the top undergraduate institutions in the country, Notre Dame has also been at the cutting edge of research, including such innovations as the transmission of wireless messages and the development of synthetic rubber. The University also has stressed residential life, with four of five students living on campus. Students come to Notre Dame not only to learn how to think, but to learn how to live, keeping faith with the vision of Father Sorin.

Jack Swarbrick Director of Athletics

John B. “Jack” Swarbrick Jr., a University of Notre Dame graduate who has risen to national prominence as a lawyer, consultant, and executive in the collegiate and Olympic sports industries, is in his second year as director of athletics at his alma mater. His first year on campus in 2008-09 featured the announcement of plans for a new, free-standing ice hockey arena; creation of an athletic administrative division to enhance athletic performance — plus 35 All-Americans, eight Academic All-Americans and four NCAA postgraduate Scholarship winners. Notre Dame teams in 2008-09 finished as the NCAA runner-up in both women’s soccer (26-1, led by Hermann Trophy winner Kerri Hanks) and fencing (men 33-0, women 32-2), while the women’s tennis squad advanced to the NCAA semifinals. The Irish men’s soccer squad was seeded 14th in the NCAA bracket, while the hockey team ranked fourth in the final poll after winning CCHA regular-season and postseason crowns. Men’s lacrosse finished unbeaten in the regular season (and second in the final poll) -- and women’s lacrosse won its first BIG EAST title. Notre Dame also ranked number one in the country (among Football Bowl Subdivision schools) in the most recent Graduation Success Rate (GSR) numbers with a 98 for all student-athletes. The 2009 Academic Progress Rate (APR) statistics included more perfect 1,000 scores by Irish teams (nine) than by any other FBS institution.   Raised in Yonkers, N.Y., and Bloomington, Ind., Swarbrick is a 1976 magna cum laude graduate of Notre Dame with a bachelor’s degree in economics. Upon graduating from Stanford University Law School in 1980, he returned to Indiana to accept a position as an associate in the Indianapolis law firm Baker & Daniels. He was made partner in 1987 and spent 28 years overall with the firm. As a member of the Indiana Sports Corporation, including the chairmanship from 1992 to 2001, Swarbrick’s leadership efforts resulted in the city earning the bid to host the 2012 Super Bowl; becoming the home of the NCAA headquarters; and hosting the 1987 Pan American Games, the 1991 World Gymnastics Championships, NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Fours, and other college championship competitions plus a wide array of national and world championships in the Olympic sports. He served as sports commissioner of the 1982 U.S. Olympic Festival in Indianapolis, competition director of the ’87 Pan American Games, and chairman of the ’91 World Gymnastics Championships.  Swarbrick has served as general counsel for numerous national governing bodies of Olympic sports, including USA Gymnastics and USRowing. Born March 19, 1954, Swarbrick and his wife Kimberly are the parents of four children: Kate, a senior at Saint Louis University; Connor, a junior at Wake Forest University; Cal, a senior in high school; and Christopher, a high school junior.

Season Preview

With an experienced and talented roster heading into the 2010 dual season, head coach Bobby Bayliss, associate head coach Ryan Sachire and the Irish will be looking to capture the 2010 BIG EAST title, which will be contested at Notre Dame, and return to the NCAA Championships for the 19th time in the past 20 seasons.

Season Preview Irish Poised to Return to the Top of the BIG EAST and Beyond Notre Dame’s experience and depth should pave the way for success in 2010 With a roster full of returning singles and doubles starters and some impact freshmen added to the mix, it is no surprise that Irish head coach Bobby Bayliss has high hopes for the upcoming 2010 dual season. “We should be able to position ourselves for a strong finish given our schedule and the opportunities it will present to get better and beat some good teams along the way,” the 23rd-year Irish head coach said. “Then we can focus on winning another BIG EAST title and achieving success in the NCAA tournament.” Last year, the Irish posted a record of 13-13 and appeared in the NCAA Championship field for the 18th time in the last 19 seasons, making them one of just 11 schools to have accomplished that feat. What makes that accomplishment all the more impressive is that Notre Dame did so against one of the toughest schedules in the nation with all but one of its starters either a freshman or sophomore. “Last season we played what I would consider to be the toughest schedule any of my teams have ever played in my 40 years as a head coach,” said Bayliss. All-told, the Irish faced two of the top-three ranked teams at the season’s end, 10 of the ITA’s top 25 and 18 of Notre Dame’s opponents appeared in the final ITA rankings, which rank the top-75 teams in the country. The Irish faced USF, Louisville, Wisconsin and Michigan on two occasions, meaning that Notre Dame played 22 matches versus the top75. “Playing a schedule as difficult as last year’s really helped our younger guys grow up in a hurry and gain experience, which will go a long way in getting ready for this season,” Bayliss added. “They will all be prepared and they know what to expect, as we have another challenging schedule in 2010.” Two players who benefitted from last season’s grind of facing top-notch competition match after match are sophomore Casey Watt and junior Stephen Havens. Watt and Havens, who combined to go 12-12 as the No. 2 doubles team last season, are expected to anchor the top of Notre Dame’s singles lineup in 2010. Both players appeared in the

ented group, the Irish should be able to put pressure on their 2010 opponents by dictating play throughout the lower lineup spots in most of their dual season matches. Leading that core group will be juniors Daniel Stahl, David Anderson, Tyler Davis and Matt Johnson. Stahl, one of three players to have been ranked by the ITA during his Irish career, saw time at No. 3 and No. 4 singles, where he posted a winning record at both positions. In just two seasons, he has amassed 27 dual season singles wins and six match-clinching triumphs. Anderson became an important cog in the Irish lineup last season as Bayliss penciled the Massachusetts native in as his No. 5 or No. 6 starter on 17 occasions where he posted a 9-5 record (three of his matches were unfinished). He had arguably Notre Dame’s biggest match-clinching win of the season when, with the overall match tied at 3-3, he defeated Meedo El Tabakh of ninth-ranked Illinois (7-6, 6-4) to secure a 4-3 win for the Irish in their final home match of the season. With the win in front of a spirited crowd at the Eck Tennis Pavilion, Anderson helped the Irish to their first victory over a top-10 ranked opponent since April 1, 2007. Davis made his mark as a doubles player for the Irish last season and is expected to be an important part of the 2010 doubles lineup as well and to compete for starting time in the lower portion of the lineup. Last year, he teamed with the now graduated Brett Helgeson to reach Daniel Stahl (left) and David Anderson (right) will be as high as 13th in the ITA doubles rankings as the duo important fixtures in the Irish lineup as the 2010 dual season posted a 14-11 mark at No. 1 doubles.

UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME®

Q&A with Bob Bayliss Last season you played a difficult dual season schedule that included 22 matches against teams ranked in the top-75 of the final ITA rankings, what does that mean for this year’s team? We certainly have an even more experienced team having played the toughest schedule in my coaching career last year, even though our starting lineup will be mostly made up of juniors, sophomores and freshmen. The experience we gained in many of last year’s matches has already made a difference to us this year as we move through the fall season and get ready for the dual season. Playing that type of schedule means the guys know what is coming this year and they will be ready to take on another challenging schedule. The reason for playing difficult schedules is that I believe you can’t reach your potential without being pushed. Having achieved some success last year with such a young team, we will reap the benefits of this heightened competition for the next two seasons. Talk about how some of your younger guys are going to react as they are moved up to the top of the lineup due the graduation of Brett Helgeson (a two-time NCAA singles participant and two-year starter at the No. 1 position) and who you are expecting to step up… After having penciled Brett Helgeson’s name into the No. 1 spot in our lineup for the past two seasons, we are now going to have to find that replacement. Though our team will be less physically imposing, we should be able to move on. Several of our guys have showed the ability this fall to win high in the lineup. Casey Watt has been the most consistent, and Stephen Havens is probably our

best shot maker. I think we should be able to win fairly consistently at the middle and lower portions of our lineup. If Casey and Stephen continue to show the improvements that they have been showcasing this fall in order to add potency to the top, we are gong to be an elite team by the end of the year. Talk about some of the returnees who will be key to winning in the middle of your lineup... Niall Fitzgerald is a terrific athlete who only needs to demonstrate in matches the brilliance he often shows us on the practice court. Daniel Stahl has always competed well and handled mid-lineup responsibility better than we could have hoped for last year; he competes so well and continues to find ways to broaden his game, so I never count him out of a match. Sam Keeton has bought in to the process of getting to the net to finish points and his ball-striking ability will keep him in a match with anybody. With those skills, the guys should be ready to take steps up in the lineup. What are some of the challenges you and associate head coach Ryan Sachire face as you move through the fall season and get ready for the dual season? We have a ton of depth on our roster, so the challenge becomes selecting which players play in what positions during the season. With those selections, we have to find consistency and the ability to win at the top of our lineup. If we do that, we will be a dangerous team. Developing consistent doubles teams that give us chances to win the doubles point day in and day out will also be a challeneg but doing so will prove to be an important factor in our success. At this point, our doubles pairings are still uncertain. We are working hard to find the right combinations and the right systems for each of our teams. As we get closer to the dual season, this process will take on even greater importance.

How much will the freshmen impact your dual season lineup? We have some freshman impact players in Blas Moros and Michale Moore. Blas’ poise and ground game make him a pretty tough customer and Michael’s power off the ground and off the serve allow him to dictate play against most opponents. We believe both these guys will win a lot of matches for us as freshmen, and Spencer Talmadge could be a factor in doubles play with his Junior Stephen Havens is expected to be a key starter at the top of head coach quick hands and skill around the Bobby Bayliss’ 2010 dual season lineup.

A two-time National Coach of the Year, Irish head coach Bobby Bayliss has totaled over 400 wins in his 22 seasons with the Irish (401-194) and is just eight wins shy of 700 for his career (692-297-1).

net. Aside from what you mentioned about your lineup, what have been some of your other observations on specific individuals from the 2009 fall season? I have noticed that, after battling back from an injury this past summer, David Anderson is quickly regaining his form from a season ago that allowed him to be one of the best No. 5 players in the country by the time last season ended. Also, Tyler Davis has made a concerted effort to play up in the court and flatten out his groundstrokes. Combined with his athleticism and his great ability to scramble, he will be tough to face. He has accepted the rare responsibility of being a junior captain for us. I really like the leadership he is providing for the team. Are there any intangibles you have noticed about the team so far that might help you return to the top of the BIG EAST? This team seems to be one of the closer teams I have coached at Notre Dame and certainly intangibles like that will make a big difference as the year moves on. We have another tough schedule in 2010 and we will certainly have to fight through some adversity along the way, but I know this group will pull through together. Talk about that schedule and what your team is hoping to achieve by the conclsuion of the 2010 dual season... We have exciting home matches against Virginia, last season’s BIG EAST Champions South Florida and Ohio State scheduled and our usual staple of top-ranked national and regional opponents. Given the difficulty of our schedule, we will have the opportunity to beat some highly-ranked teams, which will hopefully position us for a strong finish, another BIG EAST title and success in the NCAA tournament.

Coaching Staff

A 15-time conference coach of the year and two-time national coach of the year, Bob Bayliss is fifth among active coaches in career victories and fourth in winning percentage. He has helped Irish players earn All-America honors on 20 occasions, and his squads have won 17 league championships and finished in the national top-20 in 12 different seasons.

Bob Bayliss

Over the past 40 years, Bob Bayliss has built a reputation as one of the top collegiate tennis coaches in the country. Few others have turned out so many exceptional players, had such great team success and earned as many honors as Bayliss, who is entering his 23rd season as head coach of the Fighting Irish. Last year, Notre Dame reached the NCAA Tournament for the 18th time in thelast 19 seasons. The Irish finished the 2009 season 31st in the ITA rankings, marking the 18th consecutive year that the Irish were listed in the final ITA rankings. Senior Brett Helgeson earned his second consecutive NCAA Singles Championship bid. Bayliss has now sent at least one student-athlete to the event for the past four seasons. Helgeson advanced to the round-of32 before his run came to an end. He was ranked as high as No. 18 in the ITA rankings (Feb. 19) before

finishing the season ranked 28th in the nation. Helgeson was also named to the 2009 All-BIG EAST team along with Casey Watt. Bayliss’ teams' accomplishments speak for themselves. Not only has he led the Irish to 18 NCAA Championship berths in the past 19 seasons (Notre Dame is one of 11 schools that can state that claim) but he has also helped his teams post 11 top-20 finishes in that time. Bayliss' squads have advanced to the round of 16 in the NCAA tournament on seven occasions, including a quarterfinal appearance in 1993 and a trip to the NCAA title match in 1992. On 16 occasions, his teams have won conference titles. The players who have played under him have had similar success, earning AllAmerica honors 19 times and bringing home eight Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) national awards. A pair of Irish players and three Notre Dame doubles teams have earned national rankings in the top five under Bayliss. Six of his players have been honored with the Byron V. Kanaley Award, the most prestigious honor given to Notre Dame senior student-athlete monogram winners who have been exemplary both as students and leaders. The professional ranks have been the next step for a number of competitors who spent four years under Bayliss' tutelage. David DiLucia, who was ranked No. 1 nationally in both singles and doubles while at Notre Dame, went on to a successful pro career in which he played in the singles main draw of all four grand-slam events, entered the world top 100 in doubles and clinched the 2001 World Team Tennis title for the Philadelphia Freedoms. He also served as the personal coach of Lindsay Davenport, former world No. 1-ranked women's player. Three other former Notre Dame players (Richard Cahill, Andy Zurcher, and current associate head coach Ryan Sachire) have been ranked among the world's top 400 doubles players,

and a total of 15 former Irish players have gone on to earn an ATP singles and/or doubles professional ranking since 1999 (see page 112 for a complete breakdown). Bayliss' talent has not gone unnoticed among his peers, as he has been honored as national coach of the year twice. He also is a five-time Midwest Region coach of the year and has been named the top coach in his conference on 14 occasions. In 1995, he was honored with the Meritorious Service Award – which previously had been bestowed upon just six coaches for his extraordinary contributions to collegiate tennis and his service to the collegiate tennis community throughout his career. Notre Dame's Monogram Club recognized Bayliss' accomplishments by awarding him an honorary monogram in 1993. At the time, he was one of just three Irish coaches to have been so honored. Bayliss currently serves on the ITA executive board of directors and is the assistant chair of the ITA's Division I operating committee. He also serves as cochairperson of the ITA ethics and infractions committee and is on the executive and budget and collegiate hall of fame committees. On two occasions, Bayliss has been selected to lead a team of collegiate all-stars into foreign competition. In the summer of 1991, Bayliss guided the United States team to a gold medal at the World University Games in Sheffield, England. In the summer of 2003, he led an ITA All-Star Team to Tokyo, Japan, to take part in two "Dream Matches" - exhibition showdowns with the top Japanese collegiate tennis program (Waseda University) and a Japanese collegiate all-star squad. Bayliss and the USA were victorious in two hardfought contests. He registered his 600th coaching victory on Feb. 18, 2005, against Northwestern, to become just the fifth active Division I coach to accomplish that feat. Bayliss has posted an overall record of 692-297-1 (.699) in 40 years of coaching, finishing with a record of .500 or better on all but one occasion. In 22 years at Notre Dame, Bayliss has a 401-194 (.674) record, and he helped Notre Dame become the seventh Division I school to register 1,000 all-time men's tennis victories, with a 5-2 upset of #18 North Carolina on Jan. 29, 2005.

behind Notre Dame's march to the NCAA final in 1992 as the 10th seed. The '92 Irish were the lowest seed and first Northern school to reach the NCAA final since the team format was adopted in 1977. He wasted little time in making his mark on Notre Dame men's tennis. In just the third year under Bayliss, in 1990, Notre Dame received its first-ever listing in the ITA national rankings. DiLucia advanced to the NCAA Singles Championship for the second year and was named one of 16 seeded competitors, becoming the first Irish player to earn All-America honors in 22 years. Bayliss directed Notre Dame to a new level in 1991, when the Irish earned a berth in the NCAA Championship for the first time since the team format was adopted in 1977. Notre Dame was voted the top squad in the Midwest Region and defeated Kansas in the first round of the NCAA tournament before falling to eventual champion USC in the round of 16. The following season, 1991-92, marked the return of two-time national champion Notre Dame to the nation's elite. The Irish posted an overall record of 234 on their way to the NCAA title match. Notre Dame entered that event ranked No. 10 in the country but proceeded to record wins over No. 7 Mississippi State, host and third-seeded Georgia, and top-ranked USC before falling to Stanford in the final. Bayliss was named ITA National Coach of the Year for his efforts, while DiLucia finished his career as a five-time AllAmerican and won the Dan Magill Award as the top senior collegiate tennis player in the country. Despite the impressive accomplishments of the '91'92 team, the performance of the '92-'93 Irish team may have been even more remarkable. The Irish lost DiLucia to graduation and the pro tour, and captain Zurcher went out for the year in December, sidelined with a wrist injury just before the start of the dualmatch season. With the performance of a solid senior class and some surprises from the underclassmen, Bayliss and his team posted an 18-9 record and defeated Mississippi State in the second round of the NCAAs to advance to the quarterfinals and finish the season ranked 10th in the country. The Irish also captured the prestigious Blue-Gray National Classic title in March. Seniors Chuck Coleman and Will Forsyth both were named singles All-Americans, the first time Notre Dame had boasted multiple singles AllAmericans in 34 years. Coleman won the inaugural Tennis Magazine/Arthur Ashe National Collegiate Award for Sportsmanship and Leadership. Bayliss faced a dual challenge in 1993-94 -- coaching his team and playing host to the NCAA Championships -- but he came through to lead the Irish to a 23-10 record and a spot in the round of 16 after they won the Region IV championship. The South Bend community came out to see the best players in the nation, and Zurcher and Todd Wilson gave the hometown crowd something to remember by advancing to the semifinals of the NCAA Doubles

Head Coach of 16 for the second straight year, finished with the most victories in a single-season since 1980-81 and ended the campaign ranked sixth in the country (the highest ranking to close a season since being ranked third at the completion of the 1991-92 season). It marked the 11th time since 1989-90 that Notre Dame has been among the top 20 in the final ITA rankings. Stephen Bass was named a 2007 singles AllAmerican by the ITA. Bass ended the year ranked 10th in the country. The ITA Senior Player of the Year for the Midwest Region was the 17th different Irish men's tennis player to be tabbed an All-American. He went 36-11, was named the BIG EAST Performer of the Year and spent most of the year ranked among the top 10 in the country. Bass was also awarded the 2007 ITA's John Van Nostrand Memorial Award, given to an outstanding senior men's player who plans to pursue a professional tennis career upon graduation. In 2008 Bayliss led the Irish to their seventh BIG EAST Tournament Championship and was named the BIG EAST Coach of the Year for the second consecutive season (and the seventh time in the last 12 years). The Irish posted an overall record of 16-11, including a 4-3 win over No. 13 Florida State on April 26, the finished the season ranked 29th. At Notre Dame, Bayliss remains responsible for much more than just providing the Irish with a winning men's tennis record. He oversees the Eck Tennis Pavilion, and has been responsible for improving the Courtney Tennis Center and erecting stadium-type bleachers for that outdoor facility as well as the resurfacing of the courts in August 2008. A series of free clinics for the Notre Dame and South Bend communities organized by Bayliss won the Irish program a grant from Volvo Tennis.

Bayliss came to Notre Dame after a three-year stint at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He guided the MIT men's tennis team to a 43-23-1 (.649) record. He led MIT to two consecutive New England Intercollegiate titles, its first in school history. He also was an assistant professor of physical education and the tennis pro at the Wellesley (Mass.) Country Club. Before his stint at M.I.T, Bayliss spent 15 seasons at Navy (1970-84), where he led the Midshipmen to a 248-80 (.756) record. His tenure was highlighted by being named the 1980 National Coach of the Year by the United States Professional Tennis Association. Navy finished with a 19-5 record that season and Bayliss was named the Maryland Professional of the Year. He is the only Navy men's tennis coach that never lost to Army and he was named the Mid-Atlantic Conference Coach of the Year in three consecutive seasons from 1978-80 before guiding the Middies to a 22-3 record in 1982. In addition to his tennis duties at Navy, Bayliss was an assistant professor of English and an associate professor of physical education. He also coached Navy's squash team to a 42-16 (.724) record from 1978-1982. In the fall of 2005, Bayliss - who compiled a 19-0 career mark against Army - was recognized by Navy with both a plaque in the squash facility and the renaming of one of the tennis courts in his honor. Bayliss remains nationally esteemed in his profession. He has lectured at the United States Tennis Association program for teaching professionals and at the National Tennis Coaches convention. He oversees the Notre Dame tennis camps in the summer and completed the USTA's High Performance Coaching Program in 2002. In 2005, he traveled to Wimbledon to participate in a High Performance Continuing Education Program organized by the USTA. Assistant coaches have benefited from spending time under Bayliss, being named the top assistant in the Midwest Region four times since `97. Four recent Irish assistants have gone on to head coaching positions. Brian Kalbas stayed on as an assistant under his former coach after graduating in 1989, eventually leaving for the head women's tennis job at William & Mary. Kalbas was the '98 National Coach of the Year and moved to North Carolina in the summer of '03 to become its head women's coach. Mike Morgan, an Irish assistant from 1997-2000 and he took over the men's and women's programs at Colby (Maine) College. Billy Pate, the '02 National Assistant Coach of the Year under Bayliss, is in his sixth season as head coach of Alabama. Former Notre Dame assistant Todd Doebler was named head coach at Penn State following the 2006 season. Irish great Ryan Sachire joined Bayliss as his assistant coach in 2006 after spending one season as an assistant coach at Baylor. Bayliss received his bachelor of arts degree in English at the University of Richmond (1966), where he also captained the tennis team and was a member of the basketball squad. In 2002, Bayliss was inducted into the University of Richmond Athletics Hall of Fame. A member of Omicron Delta Kappa (national leadership fraternity), he completed his master's degree in English at Richmond in 1971. Bayliss and his wife, Pat, have four children: Jackie, Rob, Brendan, and Patrick. All of them graduated from Notre Dame.

What They Are Saying About Bob Bayliss “He is by far one of the top three or four coaches in the nation. He does a great job in preparing his teams. He is extremely analytical and thoroughly studies his opposition to find a weakness. Every time you play a Bobby Bayliss-coached team, you know you’re in for the fight of your life. He is a great friend off the court, but a highly competitive adversary on it.” – Jerry Simmons, retired LSU head coach “Bobby is unquestionably one of the most outstanding coaches in the country. He consistently gets the most out of his players, and they always represent Notre Dame as tremendous competitors and great sportsmen.” – Dick Gould, Stanford director of tennis “Bobby is known throughout the tennis community for his unselfish giving back to the sport. He’s an inspiration to all of us.” – David Fish, Harvard head coach “He’s by far the best coach in the country, men or women. He’s the best motivator. Everything I’ve learned as far as motivating and developing strategy has come from him. I owe him everything.” – Brian Kalbas North Carolina women’s head coach, ’98 ITA Women’s National Coach of the Year and former Notre Dame player and assistant coach under Bayliss

“Bobby Bayliss is a true leader. He sets the standard in collegiate tennis. His passion for tennis, knowledge of the game and honesty are great assets to the development of our sport. We owe a great deal of our success to Bobby Bayliss’ contributions.” – Craig Tiley, former Illinois head coach, director of Tennis Australia "Bobby is one of those rare individuals in life that absolutely inspires all of those around him. His unquestionable character, coupled with his unsurpassed enthusiasm, truly makes him one of the finest coaches in the entire tennis industry. I consider my time working with Bobby as one of the special opportunities in my life.” – Billy Pate, Alabama head coach, ‘02 National Assistant Coach of the Year at Notre Dame under Bayliss

Associate Head Coach

Ryan Sachire

Associate Head Coach Fourth Season Notre Dame ‘00

One of the top players in the 87-year history of the University of Notre Dame men's tennis program, Ryan Sachire is in his fourth year at his alma mater. He served the first two as an assistant coach before being promoted to associate head coach in the summer of 2008. Sachire ended his professional career in 2005 and was an assistant at Baylor in 2005-06, helping the Bears reach the semifinals of the NCAA Championship. A three-time singles All-American, he replaced Todd Doebler, who was hired as the head coach at Penn State University. Sachire's effect on the Irish took absolutely no time to take hold. In his first season with Notre Dame, the Irish reached the NCAA Round of 16 for the second straight year, finished with the most victories in a singleseason since 1980-81 and ended the campaign ranked sixth in the country (the highest ranking to close a season since being ranked third at the completion of the 1991-92 season). Sachire was also instrumental in the performance of Stephen Bass. Bass not only became the 18th All-American in Notre Dame men's tennis history, but also captured the John Van Nostrand Memorial Award, which provides a stipend to the top senior player embarking on a professional career (an award Sachire captured in 2000). In 2008, Sachire again helped guide the Irish to the BIG EAST title and their 17th NCAA Championship appearance. Notre Dame did so despite the graduation of three of its top six players from 2006-07 and the inclusion of three freshmen into the six starting singles spots. In 2009, Sachire helped the Irish to their 18th NCAA Championship appearance in the past 19 seasons while featuring a young lineup that showcased underclassmen at five of the six starting singles spots. He also helped guide Brett Helgeson to his second consective NCAA Championship Singles Draw appearance. Sachire also has been a major factor in recruiting, as each of the last three recruiting classes were ranked among the top-12 in the country, including this year's class which is ranked as high as 6th in the nation by TennisRecruiting.net. Sachire was instrumental in helping Baylor compile an outstanding season in 2005-06. Despite losing two NCAA singles champions (Benjamin Becker and Benedikt Dorsch) to graduation, the Bears finished 257 and No. 4 in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) national rankings. Baylor advanced all the way to

the semifinals of the NCAA Championship before falling 4-3 to then-undefeated national No. 1 Georgia. The Bears won their fifth consecutive Big 12 Conference championship. Sachire also helped several individual players to strong performances, as sophomore Lars Poerschke ascended to the national No. 1 ranking in singles on Jan. 10, 2006, and went on to be an All-American. Baylor ended up with three players (Poerschke No. 4, Michal Kokta No. 34, Matija Zgaga No. 62) and two doubles teams (Kokta/Poerschke No. 11, John Reckewey/Zgaga No. 51) in the final ITA national rankings. Sachire remains one of the top players in Irish tennis history. He is the only Notre Dame player ever to win 30-plus singles matches in all four of his collegiate seasons and one of only two to earn four invitations to the NCAA Singles Championship. One of three Notre Dame players ever to be a three-year All-American, he finished in the national top 40 in singles four times and on five occasions appeared at a career-high of No. 2 in the ITA national singles rankings (four of those instances saw him behind only Harvard's James Blake, now ranked ninth in the world). Sachire posted a 13843 record in singles - placing him second on Notre Dame's all-time wins list - and a 73-32 mark in doubles. In 2000, he swept the ITA's major awards for seniors, being tabbed the Ted A. Farnsworth/ITA National Senior Player of the Year and winning the John Van Nostrand Memorial Award, which provides a stipend to the top senior player embarking on a professional career. An elite singles player throughout his career - who was 72-19 at No. 1 singles - he was a regular in the collegiate grand slams. Sachire's best result was a trip to the title match of the 1998 ITA All-American Championships, where he lost to Blake. He also won the consolation title in the 1999 ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships and reached the semifinals of the 1999 ITA National Clay Court Championships. He also reached the semifinals of the ITA Midwest Championships three times, including a runner-up result in 1996. Sachire three times was invited to be on the elite USTA Summer Collegiate Team that trains and plays pro tournaments together in the summer.

Sachire ranks among the top five in 13 different categories in the Irish record book. Among his notable career rankings are second in combined singles and doubles victories (211) and combined singles and doubles dual-match victories (141), third in wins at No. 1 singles and doubles dual-match victories (64), as well as fifth in singles dual-match wins (77). He helped the Irish compile a 67-33 (.670) mark during his collegiate days, as well as four consecutive finishes in the national top 35 (including 16th in 1997), four NCAA tournament bids and the 1999 BIG EAST Conference championship. Sachire was twice tabbed the conference tournament MVP and was the ITA Midwest Region Player of the Year in 1998 and 2000 after being the region's top rookie in '97. He was voted the team's MVP four times. A two-time BIG EAST Conference Academic All-Star, Sachire graduated in 2000 with a degree in economics. Upon leaving Notre Dame, Sachire played five years of professional tennis, climbing to as high as 184th in the ATP (Association of Tennis Professionals) world doubles rankings and 391st in singles. He captured 16 tournament titles in doubles, 14 on the futures circuit, as well as challenger-level championships at Waco in 2002 and Atlantic City in '03. In singles, Sachire has a pair of pro titles to his credit, winning futures events in St. Joseph, Mo. (2002) and Lachine, Quebec (2003). He was among the top 35 American players in the ATP rankings in both singles and doubles and also served as director of tennis for the Wickertree Tennis and Fitness Center in Columbus, Ohio, before joining the Baylor staff. Born April 2, 1978, Sachire is a native of Canfield, Ohio, and a 1996 graduate of Canfield High School. He dropped just five singles matches during his entire prep career en route to capturing a pair of Ohio state singles titles. He also was ranked as high as 24th in the USTA national singles rankings in the 16-and-under division. Sachire married the former Cindy Harding - a 1999 Notre Dame graduate and former Irish cheerleader - on June 30, 2006, in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart on the Notre Dame campus. Ryan and Cindy have one daughter, Anna.

What They Are Saying About Ryan Sachire “Notre Dame and this men's tennis program is very lucky to have a person and coach the quality of Ryan," said Bayliss. "He is simply one of the top coaches, head coaches included, in the country. He has made an immediate impact with our program, both on and off the court, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future.”

– Bob Bayliss, Notre Dame head coach “The hiring of Ryan Sachire at Notre Dame is going to have an immediate and positive impact on their team," said Harvard head coach Dave Fish. "He has played at the highest levels of the college game and had some outstanding results at the professional level. The Notre Dame players will benefit instantly from his expertise and presence on the court.”

2009-10 MEN’S TENNIS

The BIG EAST Conference With 30 years under its belt, The BIG EAST Conference continues on a path of success in and out of the athletic arena. The goals have always been the same. The league wants and expects to compete at the highest level and does so with integrity and sportsmanship. The commendable performances of the student-athletes at BIG EAST schools are the indicators of the league’s proud tradition of success. The BIG EAST has gone through membership changes since its birth, but the 2009-10 academic year will mark the conference’s fifth straight with the same 16-member group, the nation’s largest Division I-A conference. In 2008-09, BIG EAST student-athletes again succeeded on the national stage. The Connecticut women’s basketball team won its sixth national championship by defeating conference-foe Louisville in an all-BIG EAST NCAA title game. The Notre Dame women’s soccer team reached the NCAA championship game and the Syracuse field hockey squad advanced to the NCAA Final Four. Three BIG EAST women’s cross country teams finished in the top 10 at the NCAA Championships. West Virginia was fourth followed by Villanova in sixth place and Georgetown in ninth. Individually in women’s sports, Providence’s Dannette Doetzel won the 10,000 meters at the NCAA Outdoor Track & Field Championships. Connecticut’s Maya Moore was the conference’s sixth winner of the Wade Trophy as the top player in women’s basketball. Notre Dame’s Kerri Hanks won the Hermann Trophy, the top award in women’s soccer. On the men’s side, Connecticut and Villanova advanced to the Final Four in basketball. The 2008-09 campaign was arguably the best men’s basketball season in the history of the BIG EAST with the league setting NCAA standards with three No. 1 tournament seeds, four teams in the round of the Elite Eight and five in the Sweet 16. The St. John’s men’s soccer team reached the NCAA College Cup before losing in the national semifinals. BIG EAST football has maintained its high profile and its reputation as a balanced group. Seven of the league’s eight squads were nationally ranked or received votes in the national polls in 2008. Cincinnati was the league champion. The BIG EAST, a charter member of the Bowl Championship Series, has won three of its last four BCS bowl games. West Virginia, Louisville and Connecticut also have won or shared league crowns over the past four seasons. The BIG EAST has continued to produce studentathletes who were at the forefront of athletic and academic achievement. In 2008-09, 19 BIG EAST players were chosen to their respective ESPN The Magazine Academic All-America Teams, including eight first-team selections. Nearly 400 student-athletes have earned academic all-America honors. The BIG EAST became the nation’s largest Division I-A conference in 2005-06 when five new members began competing. The new schools were: University of Cincinnati, DePaul University, University of Louisville, Marquette University and the University of South Florida. BIG EAST institutions reside in nine of the nation’s top-34 largest media markets, including New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Tampa, Pittsburgh, Hartford, Milwaukee and Cincinnati. With its newest members, BIG EAST markets contain almost one-fourth of all television households in the U.S.

Since opening its doors in 1979, the league has won 26 national championships in six different sports and 126 student-athletes have won individual national titles. The BIG EAST has enjoyed tremendous basketball success, especially in this decade. In 2008-09, the BIG EAST produced four of the eight Final Four teams in men’s and women’s basketball. It was only the second time in NCAA history that one conference placed that many Final Four teams in the same season. In 2003-04, Connecticut became the first school in NCAA history to win the men’s and women’s NCAA basketball titles in the same season. In ’02-03, the BIG EAST became the first conference in NCAA history to win the men’s and women’s titles in the same year when the Syracuse men and the Connecticut women captured their respective national championships. In men’s basketball, BIG EAST squads have won three of the last 11 NCAA championships. BIG EAST women’s teams have taken six of the last 10 NCAA titles. Proactive movement has been a signature strategy for the conference that was born in 1979. The BIG EAST continually turns challenges into opportunities to become stronger. In 2009-10, the BIG EAST will add men’s lacrosse to its growing list of sports, which will increase its total to 24 sport championships. The first women’s golf championship was held in the spring of 2003. Women’s lacrosse and rowing were added in 2001. The BIG EAST became a reality on May 31, 1979, following a meeting of athletic directors from Providence College, St. John’s, Georgetown and Syracuse universities. Seton Hall, Connecticut and Boston College completed the original seven school alliance. While the membership has both increased and changed, the focus of the BIG EAST has not wavered. The conference reflects a tradition of broad based programs, led by administrators and coaches who place a constant emphasis on academic integrity. Its student

athletes own significantly high graduation rates and their record of scholastic achievement notably shows a balance between intercollegiate athletics and academics. Any successful organization has been fortunate to have outstanding leadership. Michael Tranghese, the league’s first full-time employee, and for 11 years the associate to Dave Gavitt, became Commissioner in 1990. In his first year, he administered the formation of The BIG EAST Football Conference. For 2009-10, the BIG EAST will undergo one significant change. Tranghese stepped down from his position on June 30, 2009. John Marinatto, who has served as senior associate commissioner, has moved into the Commissioner’s chair. The league has long been considered a leader in innovative concepts in promotion and publicity, particularly regarding television. Those efforts have resulted in unparalleled visibility for BIG EAST student-athletes. The conference has enjoyed long-standing relationships with CBS, ESPN, Inc. and ABC. BIG EAST men’s basketball games are regular sellouts at campus and major public arenas, including the annual men’s BIG EAST Championship in Madison Square Garden. The women’s basketball championship has led all conferences in attendance for the past six years. Attendance figures also are significant in soccer and baseball. More than 550 BIG EAST student-athletes have earned All-America recognition and dozens have won individual NCAA national championships. The BIG EAST has been well represented in U.S. or foreign national and Olympic teams. Several athletes earned gold medals in each of the last six summer Olympiads. The BIG EAST has its headquarters in Providence where the conference administers to more than 5,500 athletes.

Notre Dame BIG EAST Titles Since joining the BIG EAST in 1995-96, Notre Dame has won more conference championships (101) than any other school in the league:

Tennis Tradition

Jerry Evert (left) – whose niece Chris went on to win 18 professional grand-slam titles and to be the world’s #1 women’s player – and Charles Samson (right) teamed up to reach the semifinals of the NCAA doubles tournament, helping the Irish earn a share of the 1944 national championship. Samson, the NCAA singles runner-up that year, returned to his alma mater as head coach in the mid-1950s, recruiting a number of players who would win the second Irish national title in 1959.

Tennis Tradition Tradition of Excellence Defines Irish Men’s Tennis Program Notre Dame’s 87-year-old program boasts two national championships and over 1,000 victories One needs only to glance at a few numbers to realize the tradition of excellence boasted by the Notre Dame men’s tennis program. In 87 years of varsity competition, the Irish have posted 70 winning seasons, including 30 in the past 32 years. In 2004-05, Notre Dame became the seventh Division I school to pile up 1,000 all-time victories. A pair of national championships and countless tournament and conference titles serve as mileposts along the road to success as well. Men’s tennis initially took hold as an organized sport in 1888, when university vice president Rev. John Zahm, C.S.C., and future Notre Dame president Rev. Andrew Morrissey, C.S.C., announced the formation of a faculty-sponsored lawn tennis club. Within three years, a full-fledged interhall tennis program had emerged. In 1910, the Notre Dame Tennis Club was founded, setting up the transition to varsity status for the sport. On May 7, 1923, the first Notre Dame men’s varsity tennis team (the school’s sixth varsity squad) played host to Indiana University, dropping a 6-0 decision at home in the Notre Dame Fieldhouse. After coach C.P. Van Ryper elected to lead the Irish for only that 1923 season (consisting of two matches), Notre Dame began a 10-year coachless period. Nonetheless, the Irish managed their first victory in 1924, a 20 win at Wabash College, and put together an outstanding crew in 1927, posting a perfect 6-0 record for the first of six undefeated campaigns. Athletic director and football coach Knute Rockne was a major supporter of the program throughout this period, taking steps to allow the sport to be successful right up until his death. Pedro de Landero became Notre Dame’s second coach in 1934, overseeing the Irish program for six years before surrendering the reins to Walter Langford, who took Notre Dame to new heights. After going undefeated in 1942, success arrived in a major way in ‘44 when Langford’s team was 9-0 during the regular season and went on to capture a share of the national title, making men’s tennis the first Irish sport (along with men’s golf, which won the ‘44 national title that same week) besides football to claim a national championship. Charles Samson led the Irish charge by advancing to the final of the singles draw of the NCAA Championships before falling to Miami’s Francisco “Pancho” Segura – who also captured the crown in 1943 and ‘45 – which denied the Irish sole possession of the title (Miami and Texas also finished as co-champions). Samson and Jerry Evert, who reached the semifinals in doubles, earned All-America honors for their efforts, becoming the first Irish players to do so. Evert and his brother Jim (a ‘47 All-American whose daughter Chris went on to be the No. 1 women’s player in the world en route to claiming 18 grand-slam singles titles) combined for an astounding rate of success at Notre Dame. Together, they posted a 100-0 record in dual-match play (260 in both singles and doubles for Jerry, 24-0 in both singles and doubles for Jim). After delivering another undefeated season in 1947, Langford ceased leading Notre Dame in 1953, to be replaced by Samson. The former Irish star led the team for three years before Tom Fallon began his tenure in 1957. Two seasons later, he led the Irish to a 14-0 regular season and a share of the 1959 NCAA title with Tulane. Notre Dame’s Maxwell Brown and Bill Heinbecker had a chance to clinch the outright title when they faced the Green Wave’s Crawford Henry and Ronald Holmberg in the NCAA doubles final, but the Tulane pair prevailed to give its team a share of the championship. In his career, Fallon coached a number of players who went on to great success after leaving Notre Dame, from Jasjit Singh, who excelled in the professional grand slams, to 1966 graduate Pedro Rosselló, who went on to become the governor of Puerto Rico. Rosselló was named one of two winners

Van Ryper. of the 1999 Rolex Achievement Awards, which pay tribute to past participants in the world of collegiate tennis who have achieved excellence in their chosen careers and are honored for their professional successes and their contributions to society. Following another undefeated campaign in 1966, Fallon brought the 1971 NCAA Championships to the Notre Dame campus, as UCLA won the team title. The NCAA singles final featured two soon-to-be legends: Jimmy Connors of UCLA and Roscoe Tanner of Stanford, with Connors – just a freshman at the time – prevailing. Fallon became a college tennis legend and amassed a 514-

194 record, winning the Eastern Intercollegiate Championships 11 times before retiring after the 1986-87 season. He was inducted into the Intercollegiate Tennis Association’s (ITA) Hall of Fame in 1988. In the fall of 1987, Bob Bayliss took over leadership of the program, beginning the process of returning Notre Dame to a position of national prominence. Bayliss led Notre Dame to its first-ever ITA national ranking in his third year and to an NCAA tournament berth in 1991 – the first for the Irish since the team format was adopted in 1977. Notre Dame solidified its position as a national power in 1992 when Bayliss’ squad upset #7 Mississippi State, host #3 Georgia and #1 USC to advance to the NCAA championship match before falling to second-ranked Stanford. The Irish were the lowest-seeded team to advance to the NCAA final and the first Northern school to accomplish the feat. Bayliss was named the national coach of the year by the ITA, and Notre Dame finished the season ranked third in the nation, which remains the highest-ever listing for the school. The ‘92 team was led by senior David DiLucia, who capped an extraordinary career at Notre Dame as a five-time AllAmerican. He remains one of two Irish players ever to be ranked No. 1 in the nation in singles, while he and Chuck Coleman are the only Notre Dame doubles pair ever to top the national doubles rankings. In 1992, DiLucia, playing No. 1 singles, went undefeated in dual-match play until falling to Alex O’Brien of Stanford in the NCAA final to finish the season 21-1 at No. 1. The Irish legend was honored by the ITA

Former Players Talk of the Notre Dame Experience “I went to Notre Dame with very high expectations. I wanted to graduate with honors, be an All-American and play professional tennis upon my graduation. Thanks to the commitment and effort of all my coaches, professors and staff, I reached all my goals and continue to benefit from everything I learned during those fabulous four years.” – Javier Taborga, class of 2002 “I visited many of the top universities in the world in my search for a perfect school, and each one had something special to offer. Notre Dame was the only one that offered the complete package. I wanted a school that could help me develop as an athlete, a student, and a person. I expected quite a bit from the school, but as I look back on my four years I can honestly say that it went above and beyond anything I ever could have imagined. My only regret is that I did not have four more years.” – Casey Smith, class of 2002 “Not only is Notre Dame a prestigious university to attend, but to be a student-athlete there commands respect. I can’t tell you the overwhelming pride I feel when I tell people I played Division I college tennis ... at Notre Dame.” – Brian Patterson, class of 1999

“I remember thinking what a privilege it was just to receive a letter from the tennis coach at the University of Notre Dame – and I wasn’t even Catholic, nor was I a big Notre Dame fan. I just knew that Notre Dame was a place where I could combine my academic goals with my athletic goals. Little did I realize Notre Dame is that and so much more. As I traveled the United States and the world playing professional tennis, I was constantly amazed at the number of alumni who would introduce themselves out of the blue and welcome me to their particular corner of the world. I was offered housing and meals from Charleston, South Carolina, to Perth, Australia. The reason? Because I was part of the Notre Dame family; that was enough for them. It will be difficult to look at this place in the rearview mirror, but I know that I’ll never really say good-bye to Notre Dame. I will always carry a piece of Notre Dame in my heart.” – Andy Zurcher, class of 1994 and former Irish assistant coach "I ended up loving my experience because of the relationships I formed and the people that I met while on my journey. In Coach Bayliss and Coach Sachire, I found more than just tennis coaches. I found life mentors who were there to help me with anything I might need. Notre Dame pushed me to become the best person I could possibly be and gave me the best four years I could possibly ask for from a university." – Sheeva Parbhu, class of 2008

with the Dan Magill Award, which goes to the top senior collegiate tennis player in the country. DiLucia went on to a successful pro career, eventually playing in the singles main draw of each of the professional grand slam events, entering the world’s top 100 in doubles and clinching the 2001 World Team Tennis championship for the Philadelphia Freedoms. He also served as the personal coach of Lindsay Davenport, when she was the world’s #1-ranked women’s player. He was indicted into the ITA Hall of Fame in 2008. Despite losing DiLucia, the 1993 squad fluorished, advancing to the NCAA quarterfinals (before losing to eventual national champion USC) and ending the season ranked 10th in the nation. Besides their success in the NCAAs, the Irish also won the prestigious Blue-Gray National Tennis Classic with victories over four nationally-ranked teams. Coleman garnered All-America accolades in singles and doubles and earned the Tennis Magazine/Arthur Ashe National Award for Sportsmanship and Leadership. In 1994, the NCAA introduced regional play in the men’s tennis tournament for the first time, and the Irish posted wins over Michigan and Minnesota to win the Region IV tournament and a spot in the NCAA round of 16, which returned to the Notre Dame campus as Bayliss coordinated a city-wide effort to make the event a success on all fronts. Mark Merklein of Florida won the singles championship, while USC was the team victor (the Irish dropped a heartbreaking 4-3 decision against #4 Georgia in the Round-of-16). Seniors Andy Zurcher and Todd Wilson, who both began their careers at Notre Dame as walk-ons, advanced to the semifinals of the NCAA Doubles Championship to earn AllAmerica honors. Zurcher became the second Notre Dame player to win the Dan Magill Award and also the first men’s tennis competitor to gain CoSIDA Academic All-America honors. In 1995, Mike Sprouse won the national Arthur Ashe Award for Leadership and Sportsmanship. In addition, Bayliss was named the winner of the Rolex Meritorious Service Award for his dedication to college tennis. The following year marked the first for Notre Dame in the BIG EAST Conference. The Irish won the 1996 title over

Miami and have since advanced to the final of the BIG EAST tournament each year since then, winning seven championships. In 2000, another Irish tennis great, Ryan Sachire, graduated after a brilliant career that saw him become the first Notre Dame player to win national senior player of the year honors when he swept both national senior awards. The ITA honored Sachire as the Ted A. Farnsworth/ITA National Senior Player of the Year and as the recipient of the John Van Nostrand Memorial Award, which gives a stipend to a college senior who intends to pursue a professional career. Sachire, who went on to capture 18 titles on the pro tour before retiring to become an assistant coach at Baylor, was ranked as high as No. 2 in the nation, was a three-time All-American in singles and twice was tabbed the BIG EAST Championship’s Most Outstanding Player. Sachire now serves as Notre Dame’s associate head coach. The two years following Sachire’s departure featured a resurgence in Notre Dame’s program, which has become one of the elite in the country once again. In 2001, Notre Dame won its second Blue-Gray National Tennis Classic title and moved into the top 10 of the ITA national rankings for the first time since 1993. The 2002 season saw a number of milestones. The Irish advanced to the NCAA tournament round of 16 for the first time since 1994, won their third BIG EAST title and were ranked as high as fourth in the nation – the second-highest listing in school history. Javier Taborga became the second Notre Dame player to earn All-America honors in both singles and doubles in the same season. The Irish senior also was honored by the ITA as the National Senior Player of the Year and was the only competitor in the nation to defeat both the year-end No. 1 singles player and No. 1 doubles team. Classmate Casey Smith teamed with Taborga to put together one of the best doubles seasons in school history, shattering the school record for doubles wins in a campaign (32) and earning All-America honors along the way. Assistant coach Billy Pate, now the head coach at Alabama, also was honored as the National Assistant Coach of the Year, continuing a long line of Irish coaching awards. Bayliss, who would be tabbed his

conference’s top coach for the 10th time during his Notre Dame career in 2008, also was named the BIG EAST’s coach of the year. Notre Dame’s 2007 season will go down as one of the best in program history. The Irish captured their sixth BIG EAST Conference Championship and reached the NCAA Tournament Round of 16 for the second straight season. The Irish finished the season with a 26-4 record and ranked sixth in the country. The 26 victories were the most in a single-season since the Irish posted a school record (27) in 1980-81 and the No. 6 final ranking was the highest for a Notre Dame squad at the end of the year since 1991-92. Senior Stephen Bass became the program’s 17th All-American and won the ITA/John Van Nostrand Memorial Award, given to an outstanding senior men's player who plans to pursue a professional tennis career upon graduation. The Irish followed up with another BIG EAST title in 2008. Then, in 2009, Notre Dame advanced to the NCAA Championship draw for the 18th time in the last 19 seasons. Brett Helgeson advanced to the NCAA Singles Chamionship for the second consecutive year, joining Stephen Bass, Sheeva Parbhu, Ryan Sachire, Mike Sprouse, Andy Zurcher and David DiLucia as players to appear in the singles championship on more than one occasion for the Irish.

The Bayliss Factor Four years at Notre Dame under head coach Bob Bayliss has greatly enhanced the development of many players. A few examples of the progression of careers are below: Andy Zurcher (‘94) As a freshman Walk-on, No. 5 singles and No. 3 doubles As a senior All-American; NCAA Doubles semifinalist; ranked #19 in singles and #7 in doubles; 19-12 at No. 1 singles Todd Wilson (‘94) As a freshman Walk-on, 1-0 in singles and 3-1 in doubles in dual matches As a senior All-American; NCAA Doubles semifinalist; ranked #7 in doubles; 18-9 at No. 4 singles Casey Smith (‘02) As a freshman 12-14 at No. 4 & 5 singles; 10-8 at No. 2 & 3 doubles As a senior All-American; ranked #4 nationally in doubles; 10-6 at No. 2 singles Javier Taborga (‘02) As a freshman 4-0 at No. 6 singles; 6-7 at No. 2 & 3 doubles As a senior National Senior Player of the Year; Singles & Doubles All-American; 19-5 at No. 1 Stephen Bass (‘04) As a freshman 22-7 overall, 16-5 at Nos. 3 and 4 singles; 6-11 in doubles dual action As a senior 2007 Singles All-American; 36-11 in 2007 ITA/John Van Nostrand Memorial Award winner 109-46 for his career (sixth Irish player to ever eclipse 100 career victories) 22-4 at No. 1 singles; ranked #10 in singles and #28 in doubles

NCAA Champions

1944 NCAA Champions

Notre Dame’s 1944 team headed to Northwestern for the 60th NCAA Championships in search of its first national intercollegiate title after being proclaimed the mythical “Western Tennis Champions” with a perfect 9-0 record. Each team was allowed to enter four players and the total score of a team was determined by the number of wins of those individuals from the quarterfinals on. The “Big Four” of Jerry Evert, Jim Griffin, Charles Samson and Bill Tully, who had combined to lose just one time in the regular season, came through for head coach Walter Langford. A singles runner-up finish and a doubles semifinal showing were enough to earn the Irish a share of the title with Miami (Fla.) and Texas. After all four won first-round singles matches, only Samson survived the second round. Unseeded, he advanced to the title match after ousting Gonzaga’s third-seeded Harry Likas 6-4, 64, 7-5 in the semifinals. Samson’s dream of an NCAA singles crown ended against Miami’s top-seeded Pancho Segura, whose two-handed backhand and attacking style helped him cruise through the draw without losing a set, gaining the second of his three consecutive NCAA singles titles. In the doubles competition, Griffin and Tully dropped their opening-round match to the second- seeded team. Evert and Samson rallied the Irish with a semifinal showing, keyed by a quarterfinal upset of Pacific’s Arnold Beisser and George Druliner, to guarantee Notre Dame a share of the national title and make men’s tennis (along with men’s golf, which also won the 1944 NCAA title) the first Irish sport other than football to capture a national championship. Notre Dame’s 1944 NCAA champions, led by head coach Walter Langford. Members of the team included captain Charles Samson, Jerry Evert, Jim Griffin, Darrell Black, Sanford Warshawsky, Bill Tully, Joe Wood, Bart O’Brian, and Leonard Buchstaber.

The Irish found success once again at Northwestern, site of the 1959 NCAA Championships. Despite a change making all singles and doubles victories count in the team score, Notre Dame shared the national title – this time with Tulane – when both teams finished with eight points. Irish captain and No. 1 singles player Max Brown advanced to the singles semifinals before losing to San Jose State’s Whitney Reed, who went on to win the singles title. Two matches between the eventual co-champions proved to be keys in the outcome: a singles quarterfinal and the doubles championship. Brown posted a 6-4, 6-2 victory over Tulane’s Ron Holmberg in singles, but Holmberg teamed with Crawford Henry to form the topseeded team in the doubles draw. Brown and Bill Heinbecker needed a win over the Green Wave in the doubles title match to clinch the outright NCAA crown for the Irish. Henry and Holmberg rallied Tulane with a 63, 6-3, 6-2 victory to secure the doubles championship and a share of the NCAA title, the first time it had been shared since 1944. The 1959 Notre Dame men’s tennis team proved to be one of the strongest teams in Irish history, as it won all 14 of its dual matches. Ten of the Irish victories were by 9-0 scores, three others were 8-1, and the only close match was a 5-4 win over Michigan, the Big Ten champion. The unbeaten season was the fifth of Notre Dame’s six perfect seasons and the first of two under legendary coach Tom Fallon.

1992 NCAA Runners-Up

Notre Dame wrote another chapter in its NCAA tennis history of success, as the Irish and top-ranked All-American David DiLucia stormed to the NCAA championship match in 1992. The 10th-seeded Irish were the lowest seed and first Northern team to reach the national title match since the current format was adopted in 1977. After finishing the regular season with a 20-3 record, Notre Dame split the six singles matches with seventh-seeded Mississippi in its first-round contest. The Irish won in straight sets at No. 2 and No. 3 doubles to advance to the quarterfinals for the first time. Notre Dame next faced host and third-seeded Georgia. The Irish built a 4-2 lead after singles. The Bulldogs rallied to knot the match at 4-4 after doubles wins at No. 1 and 3, but the Irish doubles team of Will Forsyth and Andy Zurcher clinched another upset with a 7-6 (7-5), 7-6 (7-5) win at No. 2. Top-ranked and defending champion USC awaited Notre Dame in the semifinals with a 21-2 record. The Irish won two of the first three matches to take the lead and then won three different three-set matches to pull the 5-1 upset before doubles commenced. Second-seeded Stanford stopped Notre Dame’s Cinderella run in the title match with a 5-0 win. The Cardinal won two three-set matches to help clinch the championship.

Davis Cup

Notre Dame in the Davis Cup Since the arrival of head coach Bob Bayliss, various players have represented their native lands in the Davis Cup -- the world-wide team tennis competition that has been contested for over a century. Over the past 17 years, three Notre Dame players – Allan Lopez (’94) of El Salvador, Javier Taborga (’02) of Bolivia and Luis Haddock (’04) of Puerto Rico – have competed in Davis Cup action, while David DiLucia (’92) was a member of the prestigious United States team, though he never saw action. Irackli Akhvlediani was invited to play for his native Georgia in 2004, but he declined because of academic conflicts. Most recently, Barry King (’07) traveled with Ireland in the summer of 2009 to face Cyprus and Algeria, but he did not get into Ireland’s four-man lineup in either of those matches. Taborga established himself as the most prolific Davis Cup player in Bolivian history. In five years of competition (1998-99, 2002-04), he holds a 21-15 (11-7 singles, 10-8 doubles) record. His victory total is the most for any Bolivian in the Davis Cup, while his 23 career ties played also are tops for his country. Taborga and Alberto Sottocorno stand as the best

Bolivian doubles team, as they were unbeaten in five Davis Cup matches. During his final season at Notre Dame, Taborga played in the Davis Cup and went unbeaten in both singles (4-0) and doubles (30) in helping Bolivia to a 4-0 record that moved it up to Group III of the Americas Zone. In his last Davis Cup performance, Taborga was 2-3 in singles and 2-2 in doubles in ’04, as Bolivia won two of five ties in Group III action in Honduras. In ’98, Taborga notched a 6-3, 6-2 win against Haddock in Davis Cup doubles action in Bolivia. Haddock holds the distinction of being the youngest player in Puerto Rico history to play in the Davis Cup, as he made his debut at the age of 16 in 1998. He has participated in all but one Davis Cup (2001) through 2004, and his six career appearances tie him with Gabriel Montilla as the most by any Puerto Rican. Haddock’s 13-12 career record (10-9 singles, 33 doubles) place him behind only Montilla in career wins in the event. His Davis Cup career was highlighted by helping Puerto Rico post 10 consecutive wins from 1998-2000 en route to moving up to Group III. He then went 3-1 in singles play in 2003, as Puerto Rico was

unbeaten in four matches to move up to Group II of the Americas Zone. In 2004, Haddock lost to former University of Florida standout Mark Merklein (who won the NCAA singles title at the Courtney Tennis Center in 1994) of the Bahamas in the Group II quarterfinals in February. He then went on to avenge a 2000 Davis Cup loss to Jamaica’s Ryan Russell in relegation play in April. During his final two collegiate seasons, Lopez became the first Bayliss-era player to compete in the Davis Cup. He compiled a 6-8 record (03 singles, 6-5 doubles) in Americas Zone Group III action, helping El Salvador to a 5-2 record in 1993 and a 3-1 mark in ’94. After just one season as a full-time professional, King has moved into position to be a Davis Cup participant for Ireland by vaulting up 567 places in the ATP rankings (from 1,202 to 635). King graduated from the Mendoza College of Business as a finance major and worked in Dublin's financial sector until the fall of 2008, when he then chose to focus on professional tennis. The switch has led to some great results as a professional, including a second-place finish at an ATP Futures Tour event in June of 2009.

AllAmericans In the history of men’s tennis varsity competition at Notre Dame, 17 different Irish players have earned All-America honors on 29 occasions, spanning from 1944 to 2007. While AllAmericans were determined by an NCAA committee for most of the 20th century, the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) adopted specific criteria for the honor in 1977. The governing body of collegiate tennis each year bestows All-America honors upon all players who meet at least one of three criteria in singles or doubles. In singles, an individual must: 1) finish in the top 20 of the final ITA national singles rankings; 2) earn one of the 16 seeds in the NCAA Singles Championship; or 3) advance to the round of 16 in the NCAA Singles Championship.To earn All-America mention in doubles, a team must: 1) finish in top 10 of the final ITA national doubles rankings; 2) earn one of the eight seeds in the NCAA Doubles Championship; or 3) advance to the quarterfinals in the NCAA Doubles Championship. David DiLucia (’92) is the only Irish player to earn AllAmerica honors on five occasions, gaining mention in singles from 1990-92 and in doubles in the latter two seasons. Four players have gained All-America mention in three different years. Joining DiLucia are Don Ralph (1959-61), Chuck Coleman (1991-93), and Ryan Sachire (1998-2000). The only players to earn All-America honors in both singles and doubles in the same season are DiLucia (1991 & ‘92) and Javier Taborga (2002).

Irish Honors

Byron V. Kanaley Award

The most-prestigious honor awarded to a Notre Dame student-athlete, the Byron V. Kanaley Award has been presented each year since 1927 to senior monogram athletes who have been exemplary as students and leaders. The awards, presented by the Faculty Board on Athletics, are named in honor of a 1904 Notre Dame graduate who was a member of the Irish baseball team as an undergraduate. Kanaley went on to a successful banking career in Chicago and served the University as a lay trustee from 1915 until his death in 1960. Nine members of the Notre Dame men’s tennis team have received the award, including Luis Haddock in 2004 and Brent D’Amico in ’05.

The award is presented upon nomination of head coaches and is given to one male and one female student-athlete who best display the total embodiment of the true spirit of Notre Dame as exemplified by their contribution and inspiration to their teams and who possess such characteristics as caring, courage, confidence, encouragement, humility, honesty, humor, kindness and patience. Brian Patterson became the first men’s tennis player to receive the Francis Patrick O’Connor Award, in 1999. Sheeva Parbhu (pictured) won the award in 2008.

Notre Dame in the NCAA Tournament The University of Notre Dame men’s tennis team has advanced to the NCAA Championship in 18 of the last 19 years, making it one of only 11 Division I teams to hold that distinction. The run has been highlighted by a trip to the championship match in 1992 – the first by a Northern school since the inception of the team tournament – and an appearance in the quarterfinals in 1993, as well as four other trips to the round of 16. Notre Dame won the NCAA Championship in 1959, along with Tulane, when the tournament was based on points gained from individual singles and doubles victories. The Irish also tied with Texas and Miami (Fla.) to win the national title in 1944, when only wins from the quarterfinals or later counted as team points. Notre Dame finished in the top 10 at the NCAAs 17 times from 1943-67. In 1977, the NCAA Championship became a 20-team event with all teams picked on an at-large basis. In 1994, the event developed into a regional format with the top eight teams in the country and eight regional winners advancing to a bracket of 16, which was played at a national site. In 1999, the championship expanded to 64 teams, dropped the regional format and implemented firstand second-round matches at 16 campus sites for every team in the championship. The 16 teams winning their second-round matches in 2010 advance to the national site, the Dan Magill Tennis Complex in Athens, Ga., for the final four rounds of team competition, May 14-25.

Irish in the NCAA Singles & Doubles Championships Notre Dame has had a number of outstanding results in the individual NCAA tournaments. Prior to 1977, the NCAA Championship consisted of a singles and doubles draw, with players earning points for their teams with victories. Jim Evert, whose daughter Chris went on to be the world’s No. 1 player and win 18 grand-slam singles titles, was the first Irish player to score a point in the NCAA Championship when he reached the singles semifinals in 1943. A year later, Charles Samson advanced to the singles title match before losing to three-time champ Pancho Segura. Also in 1944, a year in which Notre Dame won the national title, Samson and Jerry Evert (brother of Jim) made the doubles semifinals before bowing out. After both served time in the military, the Evert brothers teamed up in 1948 to reach that same round in the NCAAs. The best singles result by an Irish player under the old format after the 1940s was a semifinal finish by Maxwell Brown in 1959, while he and Bill

Heinbecker posted the all-time best Notre Dame doubles result that same year, advancing to the final before losing to Tulane’s pair of Crawford Henry and Ronald Holmberg. In 1977, the NCAA adopted a separate team tournament and limited the singles and doubles draws to 64 and 32 entrants, respectively. (They had previously been open to an unlimited number of participants.) Under the new format, Notre Dame has qualified 14 singles players and 13 doubles teams to the NCAAs, with all but two singles entrants coming since 1990. The 14 singles players have combined for a total of 24 NCAA Singles Championship appearances. Five times Irish players have advanced to the Round of 16, including on three occasions by David DiLucia. Sheeva Parbhu became the first Notre Dame player to reach the quarterfinals under the current format. In doubles, Andy Zurcher and Todd Wilson posted the best result, reaching the semifinals in front of a home crowd in 1994.

IRISH PLAYERS IN THE COLLEGIATE GRAND SLAM EVENTS The collegiate grand slam consists of the three most-prestigious individual national tournaments in college tennis: the ITA AllAmerican Championships (played in October), the National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships (now played in November after being a February event until 2001-02), and the year-end NCAA Championships. From 1986 until 2000-01, the September National Clay Court Championships made up the fourth leg of the collegiate grand slam, but the event is no longer played. Irish players have had considerable success in the collegiate grand-slam events, earning runner-up finishes on three occasions: Ryan Sachire at the 1998 All-American, David DiLucia in the same event in ’91 and DiLucia/Chuck Coleman in the ’92 National Indoors. Notre Dame competitors have earned one of the top four seeds at a collegiate grand-slam event on 10 occasions, including four No. 1 seeds. Quarters: d.

Conference Dominance Following 60 years competing as an independent, the University of Notre Dame men’s tennis team has had incredible success in conference action. The Irish have been league champions 14 times, including a streak of eight consecutive conference titles from 1988-89 to 1995-96. In its second stint in the league (four straight top-three finishes from 1982-83 to 1985-86 when it was called the Midwestern City Conference), Notre Dame won seven Midwestern Collegiate Conference titles from 1988-89 to 199495. Since becoming a member of the BIG EAST Conference in the 1995-96 season, the Irish have reached the title match of the league tournament all but one season, claiming seven titles. Overall, Notre Dame has a 50-13 (.794) all-time mark against league rivals, including a 16-match winning streak from 1982-97. Ten members of the BIG EAST Conference – Connecticut, DePaul, Georgetown, Louisville, Marquette, Notre Dame, Rutgers, South Florida, St. John’s, and Villanova – field teams in men’s tennis, but the league does not require round-robin competition during the season. ND has an all-time record of 1046 (.945) against those teams. The top eight squads, as selected by the conference based on national ranking and head-to-head results, earn invitations to the yearend BIG EAST Championship, a single-elimination team tournament with the winner earning the league’s automatic berth in the NCAA Championship. The 2010 BIG EAST Championship will take place April 22-25 in Notre Dame, Ind. as the Irish play host to the event. Prior to 2001, all 10 teams qualified for the conference tournament, with the top two seeds gaining byes into the quarterfinals. From 2002-05, the event featured the top six squads, again with two teams gaining byes. For more information on the BIG EAST Conference, see page 68. Notre Dame faced Miami in eight straight BIG EAST finals (1996-2003), before upsetting top-seeded Virginia Tech in 2004 and beating Rutgers in the ’05 title match. The Irish won three times (1996, ’99, 2002) against the Hurricanes (who hosted the event until leaving the conference after the 2003-04 season). The ’03 final was rained out in progress, with conference policy awarding the NCAA automatic berth to the top-seeded Hurricanes. In 17 earlyround matches (first round though semifinals), Notre Dame has an 18-1 record. Additionally, the Irish have been the top seed heading into the tournament ten times.

Courtney Tennis Center Notre Dame’s Courtney Tennis Center, the home of Irish tennis since its construction in 1967, has played host to the nation’s top players on a number of occasions, while becoming an extremely difficult place for opposing teams to win. Due to its exceptional facilities, Notre Dame has played host to a number of prestigious events, including serving as the national site of the NCAA Championships three times. Just four years after it was built, the Courtney Tennis Center played host to the 1971 NCAA Division I Men’s Tennis Championships, which featured what is still considered by coaches to be the finest collection of collegiate tennis talent ever assembled. In that spring classic, freshman Jimmy Connors of UCLA defeated Stanford’s Roscoe Tanner in five sets to capture the singles title. That pair would go on to reach a combined 17 grand slam singles finals on the pro tour, including eight victories. The Bruins swept all three titles, claiming their 10th team national championship (besting runner-up Trinity University) and having Haroon Rahim and Jeff Browiak win the doubles championship. The NCAA tournament came to Notre Dame again in 1994, and USC won its third national championship in four years by out-

Eck Tennis Pavilion Since its completion in June of 1987, Notre Dame’s Eck Tennis Pavilion has been an integral part of the success of Irish tennis, allowing the team to practice year-round, regardless of weather conditions, and providing an alternative surface to further develop the all-around skills of Notre Dame’s players. Additionally, it has become an extremely-difficult place for opponents to be victorious and has attracted some of the top events in collegiate tennis. In 20 years of action in the Eck Tennis Pavilion, the Irish have compiled a 159-46 record for a .776 winning percentage. Notre Dame has been unbeaten in the building four times (7-0 in 1992, 10-0 in 2002, 7-0 in 2006 and 9-0 in 2007), and has lost just once in a season on six other occasions. The Irish have posted a losing record in the Eck Tennis Pavilion in only one season since its opening. The combination of the Eck Tennis Pavilion and Courtney Tennis Center has allowed the University of Notre Dame to play host to a number of prestigious events, including serving as the national site of the NCAA Championships. The event came to Notre Dame in 1994, and USC won its third national championship in four years by outlasting Stanford in the title match by a 4-3 score. Mark Merklein of the University of Florida won the singles championship, and Mississippi State’s Laurent Miquelard and Joc Simmons captured the doubles title, though the Notre Dame pair of former walk-ons Andy Zurcher and Todd Wilson reached the semifinals.

As a result, the USTA presented the facility with a handsome wooden plaque, a large sign placed in front of the pavilion and a complimentary one-year membership in the USTA. The facility and its award are recognized in an inscription on a large mahogany board displayed in the lobby of the USTA National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadow, N.Y. The facility was underwritten by Franklin E. Eck. He is chairman and chief executive officer of Advanced Drainage Systems, Inc., which produces corrugated plastic drainage pipe for agricultural and commercial purposes. A 1944 chemical engineering graduate of Notre Dame, Eck earned an M.B.A. from Harvard University in 1949. In 1984, he endowed a collection in Notre Dame’s Hesburgh Library. The generosity of Eck also made possible the addition of Notre Dame’s baseball facility, Frank Eck Stadium, and the Eck Visitor’s Center.

Irish in the Pros

Ryan Sachire

Barry King Jim Evert

Notre Dame players have a long history of going on to play professional tennis. Jim Evert, an All-American who reached the singles semifinals of the NCAA Championship in 1943, was ranked as high as eighth in the United States as a professional, in 1952. His daughter, Chris, went on to be the world’s No. 1 player, winning 18 grand-slam singles titles. Among other former Notre Dame players to play professionally were two from the 1960s. A first-team All-American as a member of the Irish, Bill Brown (’67) had some success professionally upon graduation only to be followed into the pros by one of his teammates. Jasjit Singh, a 1968 graduate from India, remains the only Sikh to have played in all four professional grand-slam tournaments (Australian Open, French Open, Wimbledon, U.S. Open). In 1974, he was ranked 70th in the world by the Association of Tennis Professionals (ATP).

A total of 15 individuals who played under Bob Bayliss have gone on to dabble in professional careers. The most successful of that group was David DiLucia, a 1992 graduate who appeared in the singles main draw in each of the four grand slams. Ranked 92nd in the world in doubles in 1998, he went on to clinch the 2001 World Team Tennis title for the Philadelphia Freedoms and was the personal coach of Lindsay Davenport, the world’s No. 1 women’s player. Six recent Irish graduates have been active in pro tennis. Ryan Sachire (’00) – now an assistant coach for the Irish – was the most successful, climbing to 180th in the world in doubles before retiring in 2005. During his pro career, he captured 16 tournament titles (14 futures, two challengers) in doubles and a pair in singles (both futures). Among American pros, Sachire was in the top 35 in singles and top 30 in doubles.

Among other recent players, 2002 graduate Javier Taborga won three futures doubles titles, while his classmate, Casey Smith, and ‘01 grad Matt Daly had one each to their credit. Aaron Talarico (‘02) and Matthew Scott (‘04) both reached the semifinals in doubles in futures events, as well. While in the midst of his first year on tour, Sheeva Parbhu (‘08) found himself matched up against another former Irish player, Barry King (‘07), in March of 2009. Parbhu defeated King 6-4, 7-6(7) to advance to the round of 16 at a futures event in India. King later found success as he advanced to the finals of a $15,000 ATP Futures tour event in June, marking his best finish as a professional. Stephen Bass (‘07) continues to improve his ATP ranking as he recently concluded his second year on tour.

NCAA COMPLIANCE REGULATIONS

Thank you for your tremendous support of our entire athletics program. Our 800+ student-athletes, our coaches and administrative staff are very appreciative of your spirit and affinity for Notre Dame, in particular intercollegiate athletics. With that, your adherence to all applicable NCAA rules and regulations is essential as we strive to maintain and enhance our national athletic prominence while protecting the University’s tradition of integrity and values. Our Compliance Office staff stands prepared to assist you with your

questions and concerns regarding NCAA regulations. Please contact us immediately should you have concern regarding any situation. Your attention to these matters will ensure that the eligibility of both prospective student-athletes (“recruits”) and enrolled student-athletes is protected and maintained. Again, many thanks for your cooperation in this matter and your ongoing support. Go Fighting Irish! The Compliance Staff

WHO IS A REPRESENTATIVE OF NOTRE DAME’S ATHLETICS INTERESTS?

DOs AND DON’Ts FOR REPRESENTATIVES IN REGARDS TO A CURRENT STUDENT-ATHLETE:

(The following lists of examples are not all-inclusive. As always, ask before you act!) You are, if: • you are an enrolled student or graduate of the University.

(The following lists of examples are not all-inclusive. As always, ask before you act!)

• you have ever participated in or are a member of any organization promoting Notre Dame’s athletics program. (The former Quarterback Club, The 3-Pt. Club, The Fast-Break Club, etc.) • you have ever made financial contributions to the University of Notre Dame athletics department.

DO You may: • contact a current student-athlete regarding employment opportunities; however, no contact may be made without approval from the Compliance Office. • provide a student-athlete, not their family and friends, an occasional (once a semester) meal at your home.

DON’T

• you have ever helped to arrange employment of or provided any benefits to prospective or enrolled student-athletes. • you have ever been a season ticket holder in any sport. • you have ever promoted the athletics programs at the University of Notre Dame. According to NCAA rules, once an individual has been identified as an institutional “representative of athletics interests” the individual retains that title for life. The University of Notre Dame is ultimately responsible for the behavior of all its athletics representatives in relation to NCAA rules and regulations. Violations of NCAA regulations by an athletics representative could result in the loss of eligibility for involved student-athletes (e.g. no participation in competitions) and/ or severe sanctions against the University (e.g. loss of scholarships, television and post-season bans).

CURRENT STUDENT-ATHLETE A student-athlete is any Notre Dame student who is a member of a varsity athletics team. NCAA regulations apply to all student-athletes, not just those studentathletes who were recruited or who receive an athletics scholarship. *Note: NCAA regulations concerning enrolled student-athletes remain in effect throughout the entire year (including summer break). If a student-athlete has completed his/her final season of eligibility, all NCAA regulations must be adhered to until he/she graduates or leaves school.

You may not: • provide a currently enrolled student-athlete, their parents or friends any benefit or special arrangement without prior approval from the Compliance Office. • pay for or arrange for payment of room, board or any type of transportation for a student-athlete or their family and friends. • entertain student-athletes or their family and friends. (Exception: NCAA rules do permit institutional staff members and athletics representatives to provide student-athletes (not including their family and friends) with an occasional meal (defined as once a semester) provided the meal is at the staff member’s or athletic representative’s home and not at a restaurant.) • use the name, picture or appearance of an enrolled student-athlete to advertise, recommend or promote sales or use of a commercial product or service of any kind. Any use of a student-athlete’s name, picture or appearance must receive authorization from the Compliance Office. • provide any payment of expense or loan of an automobile for a student-athlete to return home or to any other location. • provide awards or gifts to a student-athlete for any reason. All awards provided to student-athletes must first be approved by the Compliance Office and meet all NCAA regulations. • provide an honorarium to a student-athlete for a speaking engagement. All speaking engagements must be approved in advance by the Compliance Office. • allow a student-athlete, his/her relatives or friends to use your telephone to make free calls.

COMPLIANCE CONTINUED • continue established family relationships with friends and neighbors. Contacts with sons and daughters of these families are permitted so long as they are not made for recruiting purposes or encouraged by Notre Dame coaches.

• provide free or reduced cost lodging in your home to a studentathlete or a student-athlete’s family and friends.

PROSPECTIVE STUDENT-ATHLETE A prospective student-athlete is any student who has started classes for the ninth grade. Any student younger than ninth grade who receives any benefits from an institution or athletics representative would also become a prospective student-athlete. In addition, student-athletes enrolled in preparatory school or two-year colleges are considered prospective student-athletes. * Note: An individual is considered a prospect (whether or not they have signed a National Letter-of-Intent) until the first day of initial collegiate enrollment or the first day they report for practice, whichever is earliest. Therefore, all NCAA regulations concerning contact with a prospective student-athlete are applicable until that time.

THE DOs AND DON’Ts FOR REPRESENTATIVES IN REGARDS TO A PROSPECTIVE STUDENTATHLETE: (The following lists of examples are not all-inclusive. As always, ask before you act!)

DO • forward information about prospective student-athletes to the appropriate coaching staff. • have telephone contact with a prospect regarding permissible preenrollment activities such as summer employment, provided the prospect has graduated from high school and signed a National Letter of Intent. • have a telephone conversation with a prospect only if the prospect initiates the call. Such a call may not be prearranged by an institutional staff member and you are not permitted to have a recruiting conversation, but may exhibit normal civility. You must refer any questions about our athletics programs to an athletics department staff member/coach. • view a prospect’s athletic contest at your own initiative provided you do not contact the prospect or his/her parents. In addition, you may not contact a prospect’s coach, principal, or counselor in an attempt to evaluate the prospect. Jill Bodensteiner, Associate Director of Athletics (574) 631-9647 or jbodenst@nd.edu

DON’T You may not: • write, e-mail or telephone a prospective student-athlete or his/her parents in an effort to recruit them to Notre Dame. • become involved in making arrangements to provide money, financial aid or a benefit of any kind to a prospect or the prospect’s family and friends. • make contact with a prospective student-athlete and his/her parents when the prospect is on-campus for an official or unofficial recruiting visit. • contact a prospect to congratulate him/her on signing a National Letter of Intent to attend the University. • transport, pay or arrange for payment of transportation costs for a prospect and his/her relatives or friends to visit campus (or elsewhere). • pay or arrange for payment of summer camp registration fees for a prospect. • provide ANYTHING to a prospect, the prospect’s family or friends without prior approval from the Compliance Office. The support of our alumni and friends is welcomed and appreciated. We ask, however, that you also help to keep Notre Dame’s tradition of athletics integrity intact by following the NCAA regulations. Your assistance will help ensure that the eligibility of both prospective and currently enrolled student-athletes is protected and preserved. Your efforts to know and follow the NCAA legislation are greatly appreciated because violations could affect the eligibility of involved prospects or student-athletes and/or result in NCAA penalties being imposed on the University. To that end, it should be our goal, as the best alumni and fans in the country, to preserve and protect each and every student-athlete’s eligibility. All NCAA legislation cannot be covered in a limited space such as this program. Therefore, any additional questions should be forwarded to the Compliance Office in the Department of Athletics. Please remember to ask before you act!

UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME History •

The University of Notre Dame du Lac was founded in 1842 by Father Edward Sorin. Adjacent to South Bend, Ind., and nestled next to Saint Mary’s and Saint Joseph’s Lakes, the University was started with $310 in cash and three log buildings in disrepair. Notre Dame would establish many firsts for Catholic institutions of higher learning, including the first Catholic law school, the first Catholic engineering school and the first student residence with private rooms, Sorin Hall.

Students •

Graduate and undergraduate students at the University come from all 50 states and more than 100 countries worldwide.

Notre Dame’s graduation rate of 95 percent is exceeded by only Harvard and Princeton.

Notre Dame’s 98 percent retention rate between the freshman and sophomore years is among the highest in the country, thanks in large part to the University’s unique First Year of Studies Program.

Academics •

The University is organized into four colleges - Arts and Letters, Science, Engineering and the Mendoza College of Business - the School of Architecture, the Law School, the Graduate School, six major research institutes, more than 40 centers and special programs and the University library system.

Notre Dame is among a select group of schools that ranks in the top 25 on the U.S. News & World Report survey of the nation’s top colleges and in the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics Directors’ Cup for overall success in athletics.

Community service is a hallmark of Notre Dame. About 80 percent of Notre Dame students engage in some form of voluntary community service during their years at the University, and at least 10 percent devote a year or more after graduation to service in the United States and around the world.

The University’s Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) annually sends 180 recent graduates to teach in some 100 understaffed Catholic schools in the southern, southeastern and southwestern United States and in South Bend. A national model, ACE has received the Higher Education Award from the Corporation for National Service for leadership in using national service resources through AmeriCorps.

Notre Dame has one of the highest undergraduate residential concentrations of any national university, with 80 percent of its students living in 27 residence halls.

Alumni

Notre Dame is rated among the nation’s top 25 institutions of higher learning in surveys conducted by U.S. News and World Report,  Princeton Review, Time, Kiplinger’s, and Kaplan/Newsweek. Notre Dame ranks fifth in a listing of “dream schools” in a survey of parents by the Princeton Review. The top five are Princeton, Stanford, Harvard, New York University and Notre Dame.

Service

The medical school acceptance rate of the University’s preprofessional studies graduates is 80 percent, almost twice the national average.

Notre Dame ranks first among Catholic universities in the number of doctorates earned by its undergraduate alumni - a record compiled over some 85 years.

The University’s network of 270 alumni clubs -- including  60 international clubs -- is the most extensive in higher education.

With graduates renowned for their loyalty and generosity, Notre Dame annually ranks among the top five in percentage of alumni who contribute to the University.

In recent years, Notre Dame alumni have won a Nobel Prize in medicine, a Pulitzer Prize in journalism, and an Emmy Award for contributions to television technology.
