University of Notre Dame

W

hen 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. Today researchers are achieving breakthroughs in astrophysics, radiation chemistry, environmental sciences, tropical disease transmission, cancer, robotics, and nanoelectronics. The University has also stressed residential life, with four-of-five students living on campus in the school’s 29 residence halls that serve as the focal point of social, spiritual and athletic activities. Notre Dame is one of a handful of universities with a truly international student body, coming from over 100 nations and all 50 states. Students come to Notre Dame not only to learn how to think, but to learn how to live, keeping faith with the vision of Fr. Sorin. Notre Dame is one of the few universities to regularly rank in the top 25 in the U.S. News & World Report survey of America’s best colleges and the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics Directors’ Cup standings of the best overall athletics

programs. The University ranks first among all Catholic universities worldwide, according to the 2011 Times Higher Education survey and the Mendoza College of Business at Notre Dame boasts the No. 1 undergraduate business program in the nation according to BusinessWeek magazine.

J

ohn B. “Jack” Swarbrick Jr., a University of Notre Dame graduate who rose to national prominence as a lawyer, consultant and executive in the collegiate and Olympic sports industries, is in his fourth year as vice president and director of athletics at his alma mater. Among Swarbrick’s athletics initiatives are meeting the performance needs of Notre Dame student-athletes through establishment of a new sports performance division, reaching out to more former Irish student-athletes via the Notre Dame Monogram Club and other programs, utilizing emerging digital technologies to deliver better information on and access to Notre Dame athletic programs via expanded production and distribution of programming, and restructuring Notre Dame’s approach to sport administration through assignment of a unique administrator to each of the 26 Irish sports. Notre Dame ranked number one in the country (among Football Bowl Subdivision schools) in the three most recent Graduation Success Rate (GSR) surveys – in 2010 and 2009 with 99 scores (including in ‘09 a 97 score and ’10 a 96 in football that both also ranked number one). The 2009 Academic Progress Rate (APR) statistics included more perfect 1,000 scores by Irish teams (nine) than by any other FBS institution. The 2010 Notre Dame APR report featured eight perfect 1,000 scores. The past three years combined in Notre Dame athletics have featured 94 AllAmericans, 19 Academic All-America selections and five NCAA Post-Graduate Scholarship winners; record involvement in community service hours by Irish student-athletes; NCAA titles in 2011 in men’s and women’s fencing (a combined championship) and in 2010 in women’s soccer (with Randy Waldrum named coach of the year); NCAA runner-up team finishes in 2011 women’s basketball, 2010 men’s lacrosse, 2009 fencing and 2008 women’s soccer; NCAA semifinal appearances in 2011 hockey, 2009 and 2010 women’s tennis and 2009 women’s soccer, plus a 2010 third-place fencing finish; a men’s basketball modern program record 27 victories and a number-two NCAA seed (its highest in 30 years) in 2010-11 (resulting in national coach of the year awards for Mike Brey); the hiring of new Irish head football coach Brian Kelly to start the 2010 season; construction of a new, freestanding ice hockey arena, scheduled to open for the 2011-12 season, plus the 2009-10 dedications of new facilities for soccer and lacrosse – as well

as opening of the new Purcell Pavilion within the south dome of the Joyce Center. Born in Yonkers, N.Y., and raised in Yonkers 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 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 led many of the city’s successful proposals to a wide array of athletics organizations – from the National Football League to the United States Olympic Committee to the Big Ten Conference. His leadership efforts resulted in the city earning the right to play host to the 2012 Super Bowl in Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium; becoming the home of the National Collegiate Athletic Association national headquarters in 1999; hosting the 1987 Pan American Games, 1991 World Gymnastics Championships, NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Fours and other college championship competitions and an array of national and world championships in Olympic sports. At Baker & Daniels, Swarbrick served as general counsel for numerous national governing bodies of Olympic sports, including USA Gymnastics and USRowing, and as a consultant to the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta. In his work as an advisor to the NCAA, Swarbrick coordinated the men’s College Basketball Partnership, an NCAA-led group that addresses the opportunities and challenges in the sport, and developed the business plan for the new NBA/ NCAA youth basketball enterprise, iHoops. In 2000 Swarbrick received one of the NCAA’s highest honors, The Flying Wedge Award, for his work in establishing Indianapolis as the new home of the NCAA. In 2001 the State of Indiana presented him with the Sagamore of the Wabash Award. Born March 19, 1954, Swarbrick was named Notre Dame’s 12th athletics director on July 16, 2008. He and his wife, Kimberly, are the parents of four children: Kate, a 2010 graduate of St. Louis University; Connor, a 2011 graduate of Wake Forest University; Cal, a sophomore at TCU; and Christopher, a University of Notre Dame freshman.

Sophomore Britney Sanders hopes to provide added depth to a talented Notre Dame team in 2011-12 as she looks to be a top-tier part of the Irish lineup in both singles and doubles during the dual season.


Season Preview

Deep, Veteran-Laden Roster Looks To Make Mark On NCAA Landscape In 2011-12 A pair of senior cornerstones, Kristy Frilling and Shannon Mathews, hope to serve as the foundation to a very talented squad.

While the 2010-11 season saw the Irish return to the NCAA Team Tournament yet again – the 16th consecutive year the team has done so – a second round exit from the festivities has left the Irish with a hunger to return to the tournament again in 2011-12 and hopefully make a deeper run in the field. Nine-time BIG EAST Coach of the Year Jay Louderback, now entering his 23rd season at the helm of the Irish, returns an extremely talented roster to the courts this season that saw only one player graduate from the ’10-11 squad. A pair of gifted and veteran seniors will oversee the remainder of the squad that fits together one junior, four sophomores and one freshman. “This year’s pressure will be different,” stated Louderback. “I know I felt more pressure last year after two straight semifinals and I’m sure our team did as well. We should start around 20th in the preseason rankings, which will give us the opportunity to surprise some teams. I think a key will be a very solid doubles lineup.” The Irish are coming in off of another successful season that saw the team finish with a record of 17-10, win their fourth consecutive BIG EAST Championship and earn their 16th consecutive bid to the NCAA Tournament. In addition, the team ended the year ranked in the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) top 25 for the seventh straight year, finishing the season ranked 20th while several of the players copped individual honors for their on-court performances. The lone piece of the puzzle that must be replaced from the ’10-11 foundation is Kristen Rafael. The Grand Prairie, Texas, native will be a tough asset to replace as she enjoyed her most successful season with the Irish this past year that saw her find her niche in singles play at the No. 4 court. She put together a streak of seven-straight victories at that court to conclude her season, including being recognized as the BIG EAST Player of the Week during that run; the first time in her career she had received the distinction. In addition to her revamped singles play, Rafael always provided backing

to a perennially tough doubles lineup that the Irish feature. Over her four-year career, Rafael posted a total of 55 doubles victories including 35 during the dual season. In addition, she graduated having finished with a winning doubles dual record all three years in which she posted at least one decision. While Rafael’s calming presence will certainly be missed by her teammates, a pair of trusted and match-savvy senior co-captains look to fill that void. Kristy Frilling arguably has already established herself as one of the most decorated players to come through the Notre Dame tennis program. A two-time BIG EAST Player of the Year selection and four-time ITA All-American, Frilling has served as the teams No. 1 player in singles for each of the past two seasons while also playing as part of the No. 1 doubles team each of her first three years. The Sidney, Ohio, native looks to continue to build off a successful career that has seen her post a combined 84 singles wins, including 40 at the No. 1 court in dual matches as well as 99 doubles wins with 70 of those at the No. 1 court. Teaming with Frilling at the top of the Irish lineup will be fellow senior Shannon Mathews, who for the past two seasons has been the primary staple at No. 2 singles, while having also moved up to team with Frilling at the No. 1 doubles position beginning last season. Coming off a season that saw her capture BIG EAST Tournament Most Outstanding Performer as well as a citation as an All-BIG EAST Team selection, Mathews looks to build off of a year that saw her go 19-3 at the No. 2 court and earn a berth to the NCAA Singles Championship for the first time in her career. With a combined 123 dual-match victories between the two of them, Frilling and Mathews should provide plenty of leadership and expertise to the remainder of the Notre Dame roster this season. “Both Kristy and Shannon have had the opportunity to learn from some great seniors and leaders,” remarked Louderback. “So they know how important leadership is to being a winning team. Being our top two players

Junior Chrissie McGaffigan hopes an offseason of practice and training helps return her and the rest of her Irish teammates to NCAA prominence in 2011-12.

they have the respect of the rest of the team and all of our team knows how much national experience they have.” Now entering her third year with the Irish program, junior Chrissie McGaffigan will also step into more a leadership role amongst her peers. While the ’10-11 dual campaign got off to a bit of a rocky start for the Davenport, Iowa, native, she was able to bounce back come season’s end to put together a record of 8-4 after making the move to the No. 5 court. That finish, coupled with the successful inaugural campaign of her Irish career that saw her named BIG EAST Freshman of the Year, shows the potential and talent that McGaffigan can bring to the court on any given day and in ’11-12 look for her to become an important fixture for the Irish rotation. “Chrissie has made a big improvement in her approach to practice and I think that will transfer into match play when the spring season begins,” expressed Louderback. “She has the ability to play high in our lineup. Her doubles play really improved at the end of last year and that has carried over to this fall as well.”


Perhaps there is no more important class to Notre Dame’s success this upcoming season than that of the sophomores. After being thrown into the competitive fire during their first campaign, the talented quartet looks to show an improved learning curve to the collegiate game and a propensity for winning important matches wherever they may fall within the dual lineup. Jennifer Kellner enjoyed probably the busiest first year amongst the four last season, putting together a fine record of 25-6, including seeing time at No. 3,4 and 5 singles at periods during the dual slate. In addition to being named to the All-BIG EAST Team, the Smithtown, N.Y., product also quickly made a name for herself in the ITA national rankings on the singles circuit and established herself as a tough doubles player in mixed time between teaming with McGaffigan and fellow sophomore Julie Sabacinski. Sabacinski proved to be one of the scrappier players on the Irish roster, refusing to give up on a match no matter what the circumstance may be. The Plantation, Fla., resident ended the year with a 10-10 dual record in time between courts No. 5 and 6, but ended her season on a high note, winning each of her final four contests on the campaign. In addition, Sabacinski found a niche at the No. 3 doubles court, recording nine wins. One of the bigger hitters on the Irish squad, Britney Sanders hopes to step to the forefront this season and challenge for one of the top spots in the Irish singles rotation. After not taking to the court during the regular season in ’10-11, Sanders got acclimated to dual play with a singles and doubles match in the second round of the NCAA Tournament against Northwestern. That taste of action, mixed with the power game she brings on court, hopes to mix into a successful sophomore season for the Ontario, Calif., native. The final member of the sophomore class is JoHanna Manningham, who looks to provide additional depth to a talent-rich roster. A local product of the team, the Mishawaka, Ind., native concluded last season with five victories overall in singles while posting four more in doubles play. With a year of knowledge at her disposal she hopes to continue to build on those totals going forward this season. “The good thing about freshmen is that they become sophomores,” said Louderback. “They understand now how important it is to practice hard every day and they have adjusted to the way we practice. In the juniors, they are used to one-on-one practice and in college it is about improving and

helping your teammates improve. By now they also know what to expect when we are on the road.” One new cog joins the Irish fold in ’11-12 in the form of Katherine White of Columbus, Ga. One of the top recruits out of the state of Georgia, White also brings a very powerful attack to the court as she utilizes all of her 5-11 frame to get extra pop on the ball. The talented newcomer brings with her an experience of winning after helping her Brookstone High School team capture the state championship back-to-back years during her freshman and sophomore seasons, while she, herself, was named as the Team MVP and an all-city selection both campaigns. “Katherine brings a big hitting game to the table,” stated Louderback. “She is working on being a little more consistent. She also will play a big part in our doubles success.” The returning experience to the Irish lineup should provide a needed expertise to help navigate an always-difficult schedule, which again holds true for the upcoming campaign. Of the 24 potential matchups that are on the Notre Dame schedule, 15 of them were ranked in the final ITA rankings in ’10-11, including four of which (Duke, North Carolina, Baylor, Michigan) that were in the top 10. However, with a lineup that looks to bring a challenge from No. 1 all the way through No. 6 singles and at each doubles court, Louderback sees this as a more manageable schedule that last season. “We went from being a very young team last year to having much more experience this year,” remarked Louderback. “Dual matches are so different from what juniors coming in to college have experienced. Now they are not only playing for themselves but their teammates and school. The pressure is much different and it takes some time to feel comfortable playing dual matches, which I think this team is beginning to get more comfortable with now.” This year’s schedule sees the Irish open up with a trifecta of home matches to begin the campaign against Cincinnati (Jan. 21) as well as Missouri and IPFW (Jan. 22) before heading off to Ann Arbor for qualifying matches for the 2012 National Team Indoors which, should the Irish qualify for, would take place from Feb. 10-13 in Charlottesville, Va. Two tough road tests precede that event, as Notre Dame heads to the Volunteer State for showdowns against Tennessee (Feb. 3) and Vanderbilt (Feb. 5). The remainder of the month of February and the beginning of March sees the squad enjoy a lengthy sixmatch home docket that features contests against North Carolina (Feb. 18), Illinois (Feb.

19), Indiana (Feb. 24), Georgia Tech (Feb. 26), Iowa (March 2) and Duke (March 3). A spring break trip to Hawai’i then awaits the Irish, as they head to Honolulu for three matches against the likes of Texas Tech (March 12), Hawai’i (March 14) and SMU (March 15) before returning to Ann Arbor, Mich., for a battle against rival Michigan on March 21. A pair of BIG EAST matchups then face the Irish as they take on Marquette (March 25) and DePaul (March 31) at home before opening up a tough three-match stretch to begin April against national powers Northwestern (April 4), Baylor (April 7) and Texas A&M (April 9). The season concludes with two more conference tussles as the team faces off against USF (April 13) at home before heading to the Bluegrass State to face Louisville (April 15). Postseason play then gets underway as the Irish head to the BIG EAST Championships (April 19-22) in Tampa, Fla., hoping to claim their fifth straight conference title and an automatic berth into the NCAA Tournament. This year’s NCAA Championship will see the first and second rounds hosted by conference sites (May 11-12) before moving to Athens, Ga., from May 17-28 for the remainder of the team tournament and the singles and doubles draws, a venue that Louderback hopes his team is able to visit come seasons end. “Our goal coming into this season is to win the BIG EAST and then go as far as possible in the NCAA tournament. A good run at the end of the year is very possible. It will start with our seniors and the leadership they can provide.”

After putting together a successful freshman campaign that saw her record 10 dual-match wins, sophomore Julie Sabacinski hopes to help lead a quartet of talented sophomores to a successful season this year.

Jay Louderback’s 23rd season at the helm of the University of Notre Dame women’s tennis program sees him return six players who contributed during last year’s dual season, including five of which played significant time throughout the 17-10 campaign.


Head Coach JAY LOUDERBACK Head Coach 23rd Season Wichita State ‘66

When Jay Louderback took over as women’s tennis head coach at Notre Dame in the fall of 1989, he inherited a program that had competed on the Division I level for just four years and had never participated in the NCAA tournament or earned a national ranking. As he enters his 23rd season at the helm, Louderback has turned Notre Dame into one of the premier women’s tennis programs in the nation. The Irish have finished in the national top 30 in each of the last 19 seasons and have earned 18 berths to the NCAA Championships in that span. Notre Dame has captured 17 conference titles during Louderback’s tenure and has reached the round of 16 or further in the NCAA tournament on nine occasions, including three appearances in the quarterfinals (1996, 2006, 2007) and two consecutive trips to the semifinals (2009, 2010). The Courtney Tennis Center also has served as

26

host of the 1998 NCAA Championships, largely due to his efforts. Louderback’s players have enjoyed great success under his tutelage. Twenty-seven All-America awards have been given to a total of 12 different players, and four have garnered national awards from the ITA. In 22 years, 12 different Notre Dame players have garnered a total of 28 invitations to the NCAA Singles Championship and 10 different doubles squads have gained 18 berths into the NCAA Doubles Championship. Louderback’s players also have dominated University awards, winning the Francis Patrick O’Connor Award, given to one male and one female athlete each year who best embody the true spirit of Notre Dame, on seven occasions - more than any other sport. Louderback has had 10 winners of the Byron V. Kanaley Award, the most prestigious honor awarded to Notre Dame student-athletes, the most for any sport in the time since the Wichita State graduate arrived. Another feature of Louderback’s leadership is academic excellence. Since the ITA began awarding the All-Academic Team award to squads maintaining a 3.20 GPA for the year, the Irish have earned the distinction 15 times in 16 years. Only one Division I school, Western Michigan, has a better mark, as the Broncos have won the award all 16 years. In addition, Louderback’s players have had a history of being named ITA ScholarAthletes, which recognizes monogram winners who maintain a 3.50+ GPA for the year.

He also has produced a trio of Academic AllAmericans. Louderback also has been decorated with nine conference coach-of-the-year awards, and seven times he has been named Midwest Region Coach of the Year. He was awarded the Wilson/ ITA National Coach of the Year in 2006. In 32 years of coaching, Louderback holds a 634-358 (.639) record, including a 589-325 (.644) mark coaching women’s tennis. At Notre Dame, he is 430-180 (.705), making him the winningest coach in program history. After guiding Notre Dame to a 17-8 record during his first year with the Irish in 1990, Louderback led the Irish to their first-ever national ranking the following season, finishing the year at 23rd after a 16-9 campaign. In individual action, Melissa Harris advanced to the second round of the NCAA Singles Championship, becoming the first player in school history to accomplish the feat. The remainder of the 1990’s saw Louderback establish Notre Dame as a fixture among the nation’s elite. After the honor of helping the program earn its first-ever national ranking in 1990, Louderback and the Irish proved it was not a flash in the pan, winning conference championships on nine occasions in the decade (six Midwestern Collegiate Conference and three BIG EAST) as well as earning a spot in the NCAA Championship on six occasions. Seven times in the ‘90’s Louderback’s teams also found themselves ranked in the final ITA top 25 rankings, capped off by the ’95-96 season where the team posted a record of 23-7 and advanced to the NCAA Quarterfinals for the first time in program history. That year’s team also became the first under Louderback’s tutelage to finish ranked in the top 10, completing the season as the sixth-best team nationally.

In addition to his team’s success during the ‘90’s, several of Louderback’s players were recognized for their excellent individual play on the court. A total of five Irish players (Wendy Crabtree, Lisa Tholen, Jennifer Hall, Tiffany Gates, Michelle Dasso) were tabbed as Division I All-Americans, while Crabtree and Hall also became the first Irish players to be recognized for their academics after being selected CoSIDA Academic All-Americans in ’96 and ’99, respectively. Additionally, Hall became the first Irish player under Louderback to be touted as a Penn National Player to Watch in ’96, while in that same season being named the first BIG EAST Championship Most Outstanding Performer. The turn of the new millennium saw the Irish continue to make strides to become one of the elite women’s programs in the nation. The 2000 Irish delivered a second straight 23-7 season and advanced to the national site of the NCAA Championship for the first time since ‘96, finishing with a final ranking of 13th. On April 15, 2000, Louderback registered his 400th career win with a victory over Miami. Louderback’s teams continued their strong regular- season performances, as the 2001 squad posted a 20-win season for the fourth consecutive year, with a 25-5 record. Ranked 10thin the final ITA poll, the Irish advanced to the NCAA round of 16 for the second consecutive year and were ranked as high as No. 5 during the regular season. Four-time All-American Dasso became the first Irish player to be named the ITA National Senior Player of the Year and qualified for the NCAA singles tournament for the fourth time. She capped off the best season for an Irish women’s tennis player when she reached at least the semi- finals in three of the four ITA grandslam events.

She became the first Notre Dame player to reach a grandslam final, at the nowdefunct National Clay Court Championships and made it to the semifinals of the NCAA Singles Championship. After a top-25 season in ‘02, the Irish won another BIG EAST title in 2003 and finished 21st nationally. The ‘03 season saw Notre Dame knock off #14 VCU to snap the Rams’ 38-match regular- season winning streak and 40-match home winning streak, while the Irish went on to finish 27th in the country. The 2004-05 campaign was marked by the outstanding play of sophomore twins Catrina and Christian Thompson, who reached the title match of the Riviera/ITA All-American Championships and the semis of the ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships en route to being the first squad in Irish history to reach the national #1 ranking in doubles. Despite a loss in the second round of the NCAA tournament, Notre Dame’s appearance in the ‘05 event assured that 20 consecutive classes, dating from 1990 through 2009, will have made at least one trip to the NCAA national event - a range of classes that includes every freshman since Louderback arrived at Notre Dame. In recognition of Louderback’s effort and success, Notre Dame’s Monogram Club bestowed upon him an honorary monogram in 1998. He joined an elite group of, at the time, six active Notre Dame head coaches to have been awarded an honorary monogram. In 2006, Louderback and the Irish went 27-2 and climbed as high as No. 2 en route to the NCAA quarterfinals. The Irish finished the season fifth in the ITA Rankings. After finishing 24th in 2005, ND was 22nd in the preseason before moving into the top five for good on Feb. 28. The Irish finished 2007 with a 28-4 record and their second straight appearance in the NCAA Tournament quarterfinals. Twins Catrina and Christian Thompson earned AllAmerica honors in doubles for the third straight year. Louderback guided Notre Dame to a 22-9 record in 2008 and its 13th consecutive appearance in the NCAA Tournament. The Irish also captured their third BIG EAST title in four years. For his efforts, Louderback took home 2008 BIG EAST Coach-of-the-Year hon-

ors for the seventh time overall and second time in three seasons. Brook Buck and Kelcy Tefft captured the program’s second-ever title in an ITA national championship following their triumph at the ITA National Indoors in November. Buck and Tefft went on to earn All-America status and even reached the semifinals of the NCAA Doubles Championship - the furthest that any Notre Dame duo has advanced in the program’s history. The 2009 season saw the Irish make history when, for the first time in program history, the team advanced to the NCAA tournament semifinals. Notre Dame finished the year with a 28-5 record and ranked fifth in the final ITA poll. The Irish also won their second straight BIG EAST title and advanced to the ITA National Team Indoor semifinals. Kelcy Tefft and Kristy Frilling opened the season as the nation’s top-ranked doubles duo, before advancing to the second round of the NCAA Doubles Championship and earning All- America honors. Tefft was named the ITA National Player of the Year and the BIG EAST Player of the Year, while Frilling earned ITA National Player to Watch billing and BIG EAST Freshman of the Year honors. The Irish matched ‘09’s success, when in ‘10 Louderback and the Irish advanced to the NCAA tournament semifinals for the second year in a row. Notre Dame finished with a 26-4 record and ranked fifth in the final Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) poll. The Irish also won their third straight BIG EAST title with a 4-0 win over DePaul.

Head Coach

Louderback’s squad also earned a trip to the ITA Indoor Championship. Last season, Notre Dame reached postseason play for the 16th consecutive season, reaching the second round of the NCAA Championships after claiming its fourth straight BIG EAST Conference Crown. At the conclusion of the year, Notre Dame found itself ranked 20th in the nation after compiling a 17-10 record. Frilling earned her second-straight distinction of BIG EAST Player of the Year, while Shannon Mathews was named the conference tournament’s Most Outstanding Performer after earning the match-clinching point in each contest of the tournament. Frilling also made history, joining Dasso as the only two members of the Irish women’s tennis team to be tabbed an ITA All-American on four occasions. Prior to coming to Notre Dame, Louderback headed the men’s and women’s tennis programs at Iowa State for three years. He led the men’s squad to a 45-33 mark and the women’s team to a 37-51 record from 1986-89. In his final season with the Cyclones, Louderback’s men’s team finished fourth in the Big Eight, Iowa State’s highest conference finish in 25 years. Louderback began his coaching career at his alma mater, taking the helm of the Wichita State women’s program in just its fifth year of competition. He guided the Shockers to a 122-94 record in seven years, including two Gateway

28

Conference championships (1984 and 1986) and a Missouri Valley Conference title (1982). Five of his seven teams either won a conference championship or finished as runnersup. During his tenure, the Shockers won 14 or more matches each season while 10 of his players qualified for postseason competition. Two of his players qualified for the NCAA Championships in both the 1983-84 and 1984-85 seasons.

The 1980-81 Shockers set a school record with 21 wins, as the team earned its first postseason berth. The 21-win plateau was reached again the following season when Wichita State captured the MVC and Region IV championships. Louderback was voted 1982 Region IV Coach of the Year for his team’s outstanding accomplishments. A native of Arkansas City, Kan., Louderback was an assistant tennis professional at the Riverside Tennis Center in Wichita, Kan., and head tennis professional at the Y Tennis Center in Battle Creek, Mich., before taking the coaching position at Wichita State. Louderback, who earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Wichita State in 1976, won a Missouri Valley Conference title at No. 3 singles during his senior year. For his efforts that season, Louderback was voted most valuable player by his teammates. In April 2003, the Louderback family was honored by the USTA with the Tennis Family of the Year Award, presented to one family consisting of USTA members and volunteers who have excelled in advancing the USTA’s mission to promote and grow the game of tennis both on and off the court. He and his wife, Denise, have one daughter, Bailey, who earned four monograms with the Irish tennis team and graduated in May 2008.

Assistant Coach KELCY TEFFT Assistant Coach First Season Notre Dame ‘09

Kelcy Tefft begins her first season as an assistant coach with the University of Notre Dame women’s tennis team. She joins the Irish after starting her coaching career as a two-year assistant with the University of Tulsa. Over the course of her two-year tenure with the Golden Hurricane, Tefft helped the team compile a combined record of 48-9 including two consecutive Conference USA championships and second-round appearances in each of the ‘10 and ‘11 NCAA Championships. Last season, Tulsa concluded with a 26-3 record that saw the team climb as high as 19th in the Campbell/ITA rankings. In addition, Tefft and the squad concluded the year with a 12-3 record against nationally-ranked opponents and went a perfect 6-0 against fellow C-USA opposition. In `09, Tefft began her coaching career by helping Tulsa to a 22-6 final record, a C-USA Championship and a place in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The team posted a winning record against ranked opponents, concluding the year at 9-6 in those matchups. Individually, Tefft has seen several Tulsa players earn conference recognition, including a record six girls being named to the allconference team in ‘10 as well as Sam Vickers being named Conference USA Freshman of the Year. In ‘09, three of Tefft’s players were chosen to the all-conference team while Alexandra Kichoutkin was named the C-USA Player of the Championship in singles after leading the Golden Hurricane to the title. Tefft enjoyed one of the most accomplished careers during her playing days at Notre Dame. She finished her career as a two-time All-America selection, two-time NCAA Singles Championship participant, two-time NCAA Doubles Championship participant, `07 ITA National Indoor doubles champion, `09 ITA National and Midwest Region Senior Player of the Year and `09 BIG

EAST Player of the Year. She also was a member of the first Irish team in women’s tennis program history to reach the NCAA Semifinals in `09 and helped the squad to three BIG EAST Championships, earning BIG EAST Most Outstanding Player recognition in both her junior and senior seasons. Tefft finished her senior season in `08-09 as a part of the No. 2-ranked doubles team in the nation with partner Kristy Frilling and as the 32nd-ranked singles player in the nation according to the ITA. As a junior, Tefft completed the season ranked No. 3 in the final ITA national doubles poll with teammate Brook Buck and was ranked No. 56 in the final national singles poll. She also was a BIG EAST All-Tournament team selection in both singles and doubles as a freshman, sophomore and junior before being named to the All-BIG EAST Team following her senior campaign. Tefft etched her name into the Notre Dame record books before graduating, finishing with the most combined singles and doubles wins in program history with 265. She also left the program with the most doubles victories over a career with 155 and ranked fourth in singles victories with 110.

Tefft, a native of Enid, Okla., earned two bachelor’s degrees in sociology and computer applications from Notre Dame in `09.

Twin sisters Christian and Catrina Thompson combined as the seventh pair of siblings to play women’s tennis for Notre Dame. The duo was dominant as a doubles tandem, earning All-American accolades three consecutive years from 2005-07.


Tennis Tradition With 19 straight finishes in the national top 30, including a program-best No. 2 ranking in 2006 and 2007, and 18 berths in the NCAA tournament during that time, Jay Louderback’s women’s tennis program at the University of Notre Dame has solidified its spot among the country’s finest. Louderback enters his 23rd season at Notre Dame having elevated the Irish to new levels. His teams have captured 17 conference titles and have advanced to the NCAA round of 16 or further nine times, including back-to-back appearances in the NCAA Semifinals in 2009 and 2010. Success, however, is nothing new to Notre Dame women’s tennis, which began in 1976 as the first varsity women’s sport at the University. The roots of the program’s recent success can be traced back to when Notre Dame first became a coeducational institution in 1972, and there were only 365 women present on the campus. This minority did not provide enough interest or depth to immediately warrant a women’s tennis program above the club level. But, by 1976, female enrollment had risen to 1,550, and the tennis team gained varsity status. Led by head coach Kathy Cordes, the Irish finished their first varsity season 7-3-1, and Jane Lammers and Mary Shukis became the first women to earn varsity monograms at Notre Dame. Notre Dame made great progress in its initial years and became a force on the state and national level in just its fourth season. The Irish notched an impressive come-from-behind victory in the 1979 Indiana Intercollegiate Women’s Championship and went on to finish 22nd in the national tournament. This showing led to the team’s promotion to Division II after only four years at the Division III level. A spring tennis season was added to the schedule for 1980-81, and the team successfully charted its first 20-win season, more than doubling its victory total from the previous year. In addition, the Irish captured the AIAW Division II State Championship title. This led to an appearance in the AIAW National Championship (20th-place finish). In 1982, the Irish placed first once again in the AIAW state and regional tournaments, going on to tie for sixth in the national championship. Much of the squad’s success was due to the play of freshman All-American Laura Lee. In individual action, Lee ran off six

straight victories to capture the AIAW Division II national singles title in the No. 5 flight, becoming Notre Dame’s first women’s tennis national champion. Joining Lee as one of the first two All-Americans in Irish women’s tennis history was sophomore Pam Fischette, who was the national runner-up at No. 3 singles. When the AIAW dissolved, the women’s tennis program took on NCAA Division II status and immediately became a contender for the national title. The Irish notched three consecutive top-three finishes from 1983-85 before being moved up to Division I. In both 1983 and ‘84, Notre Dame finished third in the NCAA Division II Championships. The following year, the Irish advanced to the national title match, losing to TennesseeChattanooga. With the team’s runner-up finish, head coach Sharon Petro earned Division II national coach-of-the-year honors. After competing as an independent during its initial seven years of varsity action, the Notre Dame women’s tennis team joined the North Star Conference in 1983-84, beginning a tradition of dominance in conference action that would see the Irish win 14 league titles in a row and 18 in the 25 years since giving up their independent status. The 1985-86 season saw the women’s tennis team reach another milestone in its short history – the team’s debut at the NCAA

Division I level. First-year head coach Michele Gelfman led Notre Dame to a 28-6 record, with four of the losses coming by 5-4 scores. The win total still stands as the highest by an Irish team at the Division I level (tied with both the ’07 and ’09 seasons). The tradition of freshman excellence continued in 1987-88 as rookie CeCe Cahill became the first Irish women’s tennis player to compete in the NCAA Division I Championships. The first Notre Dame player to be listed in the national singles rankings, she qualified for the singles tournament, but dropped her first-round match 7-6 (7-3), 6-3 to Stanford’s Katy Tittle. The 1988-89 season proved to be another landmark in the program’s growth, marking the Irish debut in the Midwestern Collegiate Conference, in which it would win seven straight titles (after going unbeaten in five North Star Conference Championships). Louderback took over the Irish program in the fall of 1989, ushering in an era of unparalleled success. After a 17-8 campaign in his first season, the ‘90-91 Irish became the first team in the program’s history to crack the Division I team national rankings, while three individuals also received national listings. Melissa Harris – who was ranked as high as seventh nationally in singles during her career – became the first Notre Dame women’s


tennis player to win a match in the NCAA Division I Singles Championship when she beat Northwestern’s Lindsay Matthews 6-3, 4-6, 6-2. Notre Dame entered the national stage in ’92-93, earning its first invitation to the NCAA Division I Championship and knocking off No. 19 Alabama to advance to the round of 16. Freshman Wendy Crabtree gained entrance to the NCAA Singles Championship and teamed with Lisa Tholen in the doubles draw, the first Irish doubles team to earn a spot in the event. Crabtree became Notre Dame’s first AllAmerican on the Division I level in ’93-94, garnering honors in singles and in doubles with Tholen. In addition, the team earned its second straight trip to the round of 16 and, for the first time in the history of the program, two players – Crabtree and Holyn Lord – earned spots in the NCAA singles field. The 1995-96 Irish squad reached the quarterfinals of the NCAA Championship – tied for the farthest Notre Dame had ever advanced in the event to that point. In addition, the Irish finished the season ranked sixth – the second highest final ranking in program history. Notre Dame also came away with the BIG EAST title in its inaugural year in the league. Jennifer Hall earned All-America honors as a freshman, and she played in the NCAA singles event, while Crabtree and Lord closed out their impressive careers playing in the NCAA doubles tournament for the second straight year. In ‘97, Hall advanced to the second round of the NCAA singles tournament and to the final 16 in the doubles championship with Tiffany Gates. Notre Dame also won its second straight BIG EAST championship, and Louderback was named the league’s coach of the year for the second consecutive year. Michelle Dasso began her illustrious career by setting the school record for singles wins in a season with a 40-8 record. Notre Dame’s Courtney Tennis Center served as the national site for the 1998 NCAA Championships (it remains the northernmost location ever selected for that distinction). Hall teamed with Tiffany Gates for the first of her two consecutive appearances in the NCAA doubles quarterfinals. Notre Dame turned in the first of back-toback 23-7 seasons in 1998-99, putting together a 12-match winning streak and winning its third BIG EAST title. Dasso joined

Crabtree as the only players in school history at the time to have earned All-America honors in singles and doubles in the same season. She teamed up with Hall to reach the final eight of the NCAA Doubles Championship, matching the best-ever finish for an Irish team. A year later, Notre Dame advanced to the NCAA round of 16 for the first time since 1996 and won 14 of 15 matches in one lateseason stretch. For the fourth time in five years, the Courtney Tennis Center was selected as a host site for early-round NCAA Championship action in 2001. Notre Dame reached the final 16 for the second consecutive year and finished 25-5 after peaking at fifth in the national rankings. It was the fourth consecutive 20-win season and the fewest losses for a Notre Dame team at the Division I level. Four-time All-American Dasso became the first Irish player to be named the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) National Senior Player of the Year and qualified for the NCAA singles tournament for the fourth consecutive season. She capped off the best season for an Irish women’s tennis player when she reached at least the semifinals in three of the four ITA grand-slam events. She became the first Notre Dame player to reach a grand-slam final, at the nowdefunct National Clay Court Championships, and made it to the semifinals of the NCAA Singles Championship. Dasso was ranked as high as No. 2 nationally in singles and fifth in doubles (with Becky Varnum), establishing program bests in both instances. Notre Dame won its fifth BIG EAST Championship in ’03, pulling out a thrilling 4-3 win over host and arch-rival Miami with a victory at No. 2 doubles in the last match remaining on court. Caylan Leslie and Alicia Salas both earned berths in the NCAA singles tournament, marking the fifth time since 1991 that two Notre Dame players gained entrance to the event. Salas became one of the nation’s top players during the 2003-04 season, peaking at 10th in the national singles rankings, while twins Catrina and Christian Thompson continued the tradition of freshman superlatives. The duo filled the No. 1 doubles spot all season and played Nos. 2 and 3 singles. The Thompsons became the first all-freshman doubles team (for any school) to be invited to the NCAA Doubles Championship since 1998,

rallying for a three-set victory in the first round before falling in three sets in the round of 16 to finish the season ranked 26th. The Thompsons reached new heights in ‘0405, advancing to the title match of the season’s first grand slam, the Riviera/ITA AllAmerican Championships. The sophomore sisters then reached the semis in the ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships and surged to the national No. 1 ranking in doubles in early spring, achieving another program first. They earned a spot in the NCAA Doubles Championship and won a match to reach the round of 16 for the second consecutive season. Catrina also garnered an invitation to the singles event and prevailed in the opening round. Notre Dame went 27-2 and climbed as high as No. 2 en route to the NCAA quarterfinals in 2006. The Irish finished the season fifth in the ITA Rankings, the highest final ITA ranking since becoming a Division I program in 198586. After finishing 24th in 2005, ND was 22nd in the preseason before moving into the top five for good on Feb. 28. The Irish were the top-ranked team in the ITA’s Midwest Region for the first time since 1999-2000. The Irish did not miss a beat in 2007. Notre Dame climbed as high as No. 2 in the rankings, again, and reached the NCAA quarterfinals for the second consecutive season. The Irish went 28-4 on the year and knocked off 13 opponents ranked in the top 25. Catrina and Christian Thompson were named AllAmericans for the third straight year in doubles. Over the past four seasons, Louderback and the Irish have continued to exert their conference and national prowess, claiming four straight BIG EAST Tournament championships en route to earning the league’s automatic bid each season. After reaching the second round in ’08 on the heels of a 22-9 ledger, Louderback’s teams went on to earn back-to-back berths in the NCAA Semifinals in ’09 and ’10, marking the best finishes the Irish have ever had in the Division I NCAA Championship. The ’11 season saw the Irish advance to the second round before bowing out. Additionally, Louderback, who was three times tabbed as the conference Coach of the Year in that span, saw his players recognized for individual merits. Kelcy Tefft and Kristy

Tennis Tradition Frilling climbed to the top spot of the doubles rankings in ’08-09 before finishing the year ranked second in the nation, a ranking that sits as the highest ranking in program history in doubles. That mark was matched only one year later when Frilling, now teamed with Kali Krisik, went 25-0 during the dual season to finish second nationally. After three years with the Irish program, Frilling also has established herself as one of the greats in women’s tennis program history. The four-time All-American and two-time BIG EAST Player of the Year has served as the primary No. 1 for the Irish since her sophomore season in ’09 and has piled up 40 wins at that court, while serving as part of the main doubles team each of her first three years in amassing a 70-9 dual record at the No.1 court.

A Family Tradition Notre Dame women’s tennis has long featured members of the same family on its teams. A total of seven sets of sisters have earned monograms in women’s tennis, second most of any of the 13 Irish women’s sports. In 2002-03, Liz Donohue and Lauren Connelly joined the Notre Dame squad as freshmen, combining with sisters Maggie Donohue and Sarah Jane Connelly to mark the first time in school history that a team (in any sport) featured two sets of sisters at the same time. Though Maggie Donohue graduated in ’03, the Connellys were joined by twins Catrina and Christian Thompson to give Notre Dame women’s tennis two sets of sisters again in both 2003-04 and ‘04-05. In all, 37 sets of sisters in eight different sports have earned monograms in the same sport at Notre Dame.

In addition to coaching his daughter, Bailey, Jay Louderback added another family connection in 2006, when Kali Krisik, his niece, joined the Fighting Irish. Louderback became the 11th Notre Dame head coach – just the second in a women’s sport – to have coached his son or daughter with the Irish, joining softball’s Brian Boulac; football’s Ara Parseghian and Lou Holtz; men’s basketball’s John MacLeod; baseball’s Paul Mainieri; hockey’s Lefty Smith; fencing’s Pedro De Landero, Mike DeCicco and Yves Auriol; and men’s soccer’s Mike Berticelli.

Irish All-Americans Notre Dame Women’s Tennis All-Americans In the 35 years of varsity competition, 14 Irish women’s tennis players have been tabbed AllAmericans. In 1982, Pam Fischette and Laura Lee became the program’s first two All-Americans. To qualify for All-America honors in AIAW Division II (in which Notre Dame competed at the time), a player had to reach the title match at her position in the national championships. Since becoming a Division I program in 1986, Notre Dame has had 12 players earn a total of 27 All-America honors. The All-America teams are selected by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) each year, with the governing body of collegiate tennis naming 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 player must 1) finish in the 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. The 14 Irish All-Americans are featured below with their qualifying criteria and career stats noted.

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 possess such characteristics as caring, courage, confidence, encouragement, humility, honesty, humor, kindness, and patience.

Francis Patrick O’Connor 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. Ten members of the Notre Dame women’s tennis team have received the award since 1990, the most of any sport during that span.

NCAA Team Championships Notre Dame in the NCAA Tournament

The Notre Dame women’s tennis team has a long tradition of postseason play, especially since the move to NCAA Division I in 1985-86. The Irish have advanced to the team portion of the NCAA Championships in 18 of the past 19 seasons, including the last 16 in a row. Notre Dame has advanced to the round of 16 on nine occasions, including three appearances in the national quarterfinals in 1996, 2006 and 2007 and back-to-back semifinal appearances in 2009 and 2010. Only once have the Irish failed to win a match in the NCAA tournament. In its four seasons on the Division II level (1981-82 to 1984-85), Notre Dame was a national power, finishing among the top six in the nation in each campaign. In the final year of AIAW play, the Irish tied for sixth in the national championship in 1982. The following season saw Notre Dame lose to UC Davis in the national semifinals, but rebound to beat Northern Colorado for third place. In 1984, the Irish fell to Tennessee-Chattanooga in the semis, but gained revenge on UC Davis to again claim third place. Notre Dame’s final season in Division II saw it reach the title match before losing to TennesseeChattanooga. In their first national tournament experience, the Irish were 22nd in the 1979 AIAW Division III National Championship (played in the fall) before taking 20th in the following season.

Notre Dame players have been regular participants in the NCAA Singles and Doubles Championships since moving to the Division I level. The Irish have had at least one player earn a berth in the NCAA singles tournament in 22 of the last 24 seasons. On eight occasions, a pair of Irish competitors earned invitations to the event. In 1992, Melissa Harris became the first Notre Dame player to win a match in the NCAAs. In her fourth consecutive singles appearance in 2001, former Notre Dame assistant coach Michelle Dasso reached the semifinals, marking the best finish ever for an Irish player. In doubles play, Wendy Crabtree and Lisa Tholen made history when they became the first Irish duo to play in the NCAAs, in 1993. In ‘94, they advanced to the final eight to earn All-America honors. Jennifer Hall and Tiffany Gates matched Crabtree and Tholen with their ’98 quarterfinal appearance, with Hall and Dasso also reaching the quarters in ’99. Dasso made return trips to the tournament in 2000 and ‘01 with Becky Varnum. The Irish have had at least one entrant in each of the NCAA Doubles Championship in 17 of the last 18 years. The Thompson twins, Christian and Catrina, became the first Irish duo to reach the tournament three times (eventually participated all four years). In the early days of the program, the Irish excelled in the AIAW national championships. Laura Lee, just a freshman at the time, won the national title at No. 5 singles in 1982, while Pam Fischette was the runner-up at No. 3 singles the same year.

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 All-American Championships (played in October), the ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships (played in November now after being a February event until 2001-02), and the year-end NCAA Championships. From 1986 until 200001, 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. Michelle Dasso reached at least the quarterfinals in each of the four events in 2000-01, highlighted by a runner-up finish in the Clay Court Championships. Jennifer Hall is the only other player to reach the singles semifinals in a collegiate grand-slam event, with her finish in the 1996 National Indoors. In 2005-06, Catrina Thompson and Christian Thompson became the first Irish doubles team to capture an Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) national championship.

UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME®

CONFERENCE DOMINANCE Following seven years competing as an independent, the University of Notre Dame women’s tennis team has had incredible success in conference action over the past 27 years. The Irish have been league champions 23 times, including a streak of 14 consecutive conference titles from 1983-84 to 1996-97 and a 27-match conference winning streak from 1983-98. Notre Dame has a 80-7 (.920) all-time record against conference foes, including 45-2 (.957) in the regular season. The Irish won North Star Conference championships in each of its five years of membership (1983-84 to 1987-88), then captured seven Midwestern Collegiate Conference titles from 1988-89 to 1994-95. Since joining the BIG EAST Conference in 1995-96, Notre Dame has won 11 championships and finished as the league’s runner-up on four occasions. All 16 members of the BIG EAST Conference field teams in women’s tennis, but the league does not require round-robin competition during the season. The top 12 teams, as selected by the conference based on national ranking and head-to-head results, earn invitations to the year-end BIG EAST Championship, a single-elimination team tournament with the winner gaining the league’s automatic berth in the NCAA Championship. Prior to 2001, all 14 teams qualified for the conference tournament, with the top two seeds gaining byes into the quarterfinals. For more information on the BIG EAST Conference, see page 91. Notre Dame defeated Syracuse in the 2005 final and South Florida in the 2006 final, but lost to the Bulls in the 2007 championship. Notre Dame topped South Florida for the ‘08 title, edged DePaul in 2009, and defeated DePaul again in 2010. In 2011, the Irish again topped South Florida for the title. The Irish faced now-departed Miami in the title match of the BIG EAST Championship over nine straight seasons, winning in 1996, ’97, ’99, 2001, and ’03. In 25 earlyround matches (first round through semifinals), Notre Dame is undefeated, having registered 24 shutouts. Overall, Notre Dame is 35-5 in the event. The Irish have been the top seed heading into the tournament in every year but 2003, when they were the No. 2 seed. Notre Dame mentor Jay Louderback has been named the BIG EAST’s Coach of the Year eight times, while Irish student-athletes have been tabbed the league championship’s Most Outstanding Player on eight occasions.

Courtney Tennis Center Notre Dame’s Courtney Tennis Center, the home of Irish women’s tennis since the establishment of the varsity program in 1980, 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. Playing at both the Courtney Tennis Center and in the Eck Tennis Pavilion, the Irish have compiled an all-time home record of 305-67 for an impressive .820 winning percentage. Only once has Notre Dame had a losing home record, when it won just one of four matches at the Courtney Tennis Center in 1977, its second varsity season. The Irish have posted undefeated marks at home on eight occasions: 12-0 in 1981; 6-0 in ’82; 14-0 in ’86; 8-0 in ’89; 8-0 in ’90; 12-0 in 2000, 16-0 in ‘06; 11-0 in ‘07. Notre Dame has posted one-loss seasons at home in nine other campaigns. 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 four 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 finNOTRE DAME WOMEN’S TENNIS YEAR-BY-YEAR HOME RECORDS Year W L Pct. 1976 3 1 .750 1977 1 3 .250 1978 6 3 .667 1979 3 1 .750 1981 12 0 1.000 1982 6 0 1.000 1983 8 3 .727 1984 11 2 .846 1985 9 3 .750 1986 14 0 1.000 1987 6 6 .500 1988 7 2 .778 1989 9 0 1.000 1990 8 0 1.000 1991 9 1 .900 1992 7 5 .583 1993 10 1 .909 1994 10 3 .769 1995 8 1 .889 1996 8 1 .889 1997 8 5 .615 1998 8 2 .800 1999 11 2 .846 2000 12 0 1.000 2001 11 1 .917 2002 9 4 .692 2003 8 3 .727 2004 7 2 .778 2005 6 4 .600 2006 16 0 1.000 2007 11 0 1.000 2008 10 2 .833 2009 9 1 .909 2010 15 1 .938 2011 9 4 .692 Totals 305 67 .820

The Courtney Tennis Center has played host to NCAA Championship action 15 times, including serving as the national site of the 1998 NCAA Championships.

est 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 NCAA men’s tournament came to Notre Dame again in 1994, while the NCAA Division I Women’s Tennis Championships were played at the Courtney Tennis Center in 1998. It still stands as the northern-most facility ever to play host to the NCAA women’s tennis championships. Florida defeated Duke in the title match, while Blue Devil Vanessa Webb claimed the singles crown. In doubles, the California pair of Amanda Augustus and Amy Jenson won the first of their back-to-back NCAA doubles titles. In all, the Courtney Tennis Center has been the site of NCAA action on 15 occasions, including every year from 1994-2002 for either women’s or men’s play. In addition, it has played host to conference championships on 11 occasions (three North Star, six Midwestern Collegiate, two BIG EAST), as well as an Intercollegiate Tennis Association Summer Circuit event for 10 straight years (1994-2003). During the early days of the program, Notre Dame played host to the Irish Invitational, a fall event, for 11 consecutive years from 1977-87. The Irish played exclusively at the Courtney Tennis Center during their first 11 varsity seasons, compiling a 79-22 (.782) record. Since the Eck Tennis Pavilion was completed in 1987, it has become the predominant location of Notre Dame’s home matches, while the Courtney Tennis Center has become a regular site for lateseason matches and NCAA competition, as well as continuing to be an integral practice facility during both the fall and spring. The Irish have been particularly effective at the Courtney Tennis Center since ’88, posting a 35-6 (.854) mark.

Notre Dame has put together a number of long winning streaks at home, highlighted by a 31-match win streak from Feb. 27, 2005 to April 6, 2008. The Irish won 25 in a row at the Courtney Tennis Center over a span of more than four years from 1979-83. Notre Dame won 23 straight from 1988-91, and, more recently, put together a 21-match regular-season home winning streak from 1999-2000. On 38 occasions (in 70 matches), top-25 opponents have come to Notre Dame and left with a defeat. Among the biggest home wins have been seven victories against top-10 foes, including a pair of victories over BYU and DePaul (both ranked No. 9 at the time of the match) in 2006 and a win over No. 7 North Carolina in 2007. In all, the Courtney Tennis Center and Eck Tennis Pavilion have combined to play host to a showdown of top-25 teams 68 times, with Notre Dame prevailing on 35 occasions. The Irish have been particularly dominant at home against teams not ranked in the national top 25, as Notre Dame holds a remarkable 1617 (.958) record since the 1988-89 season. That includes a current streak of 58 consecutive wins against non-top-25 foes at home, dating back to 2002. Since opening in 1967, the Courtney Tennis Center has undergone a variety of improvements. Most recently, 14 of the courts were newly resurfaced during the summer of 2003 and the facility was reoriented in the winter of 2004 as construction began on the neighboring Guglielmino Family Athletics Center. That undertaking saw the construction of a new tournament center tower, while the seating was moved from the west to the east end, which now plays host to varsity matches, making it more convenient for the teams headquartered in the Eck Tennis Pavilion. The reoriented Courtney Tennis Center, which features 14 courts, saw its first varsity action on April 15, 2003, when

The home of Irish tennis for nearly 40 years, the construction of the Courtney Tennis Center was financed entirely by prominent Washington, D.C., attorney Jeremiah Courtney. The numerous courts and brand-new laykold surface make it a popular spot for students and faculty, as well as the varsity tennis teams. Courtney is a 1932 graduate of Columbia University, where he captained the tennis team. His two sons attended Notre Dame and played tennis under legendary coach Tom Fallon. The first home of Irish tennis was the Notre Dame Fieldhouse, which played host to Irish home matches until the Courtney Tennis Center was built. The structure was razed in 1983. Indoor courts in Notre Dame’s Joyce Center also were used sporadically before the Eck Tennis Pavilion’s construction. 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 for opponents to be victorious and has attracted some of the top events in collegiate tennis. Playing at both the Eck Tennis Pavilion and Courtney Tennis Center, the Irish have compiled an all-time home record of 305-67 for an impressive .820 winning percentage. Only once has Notre Dame had a losing home record, when it won just one of four matches at the Courtney Tennis Center in 1977, its second varsity season. The Irish have posted undefeated marks at home

on eight occasions: 12-0 in 1981; 6-0 in ’82; 14-0 in ’86; 8-0 in ’89; 8-0 in ’90; 12-0 in 2000; 16-0 in ‘06; 11-0 in ‘07. Notre Dame has posted one-loss seasons at home in nine other campaigns. In 21 years of competition in the Eck Tennis Pavilion, Notre Dame has compiled a stellar 192-40 record, for a winning percentage of .828. The combination of the Eck Tennis Pavilion and Courtney Tennis Center has allowed the University of Notre Dame to be the national site of the NCAA Championships. The NCAA men’s tournament came to Notre Dame again in 1994, while the NCAA Division I Women’s Tennis Championships were played at the Courtney Tennis Center in 1998. It still stands as the northern-most facility ever to play host to the NCAA women’s tennis championships. Florida defeated Duke in the title match, while Blue Devil Vanessa Webb claimed the singles crown. In doubles, the California pair of Amanda Augustus and Amy Jenson won the first of their back-to-back NCAA doubles titles. In all, Notre Dame has been the site of NCAA action on 15 occasions, including every year from 1994-2002 for either women’s or men’s play. In addition, the Eck Tennis Pavilion has three times welcomed the Intercollegiate Tennis Association’s Midwest Region Indoor Championships and six times helped play host to the Midwestern Collegiate Conference Championship and most recently the BIG EAST Championships in both 2010 and ‘11. After its completion, the facility featured the Eck Classic for 16 consecutive years and also has provided additional courts for the men’s Tom Fallon Invitational. Notre Dame has put together a number of long winning streaks at home, highlighted by the 31-match win streak from Feb. 27, 2005 to April 6, 2008. The Irish won 25 in a row at the Courtney Tennis Center over a span of more than four years from 1979-83. Notre Dame won 23 straight from 1988-91, and, more recently, put together a 21-match regular-season home winning streak from 1999-2000. On 38 occasions (in 70 matches), top-25 opponents have come to Notre Dame and left with a defeat. Among the biggest home wins have been seven victories against top-10 foes, including a pair of victories over BYU and DePaul (both ranked No. 9 at the time of the match) in 2006 and 2007’s win over No. 7 North Carolina.

That includes a current streak of 58 consecutive wins against non-top-25 foes at home, dating back to 2002. The summer of 2003 saw the Eck Tennis Pavilion newly renovated, as all six courts were resurfaced (changing them from red to green) and the color scheme was changed to blue and gold throughout the building. Among the other highlights were numerous pieces of new wood furniture, as well as additional trophy cases and other accessories. The facility features the offices

for both the men’s and women’s tennis coaches, as well as locker rooms for both teams and a spacious spectator viewing area upstairs that is ideally suited for videotaping. “It is truly one of the great collegiate indoor tennis facilities in the country,” says Irish head coach Jay Louderback. In Sept. 1988, the Eck Pavilion received the 1988 United States Tennis Association (USTA) Award for architectural design. 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. In addition, 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 at 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 Notre Dame’s baseball facility, Frank Eck Stadium, and the Eck Visitor’s Center possible. The Eck Tennis Pavilion is the third facility to play host to indoor Irish tennis action. The Notre Dame Fieldhouse, which was razed in 1983, was the first home of Notre Dame’s varsity team, and the Irish also sporadically used courts in the Joyce Center.

2011-12 WOMEN’S TENNIS

The BIG EAST Conference The 2011-12 academic year is the 33rd in the history of The BIG EAST Conference as the unique consortium marches on competing at the highest level with integrity and sportsmanship. The BIG EAST has gone through membership changes since its birth, but the 2011-12 year marks the conference’s seventh straight with the same 16-member group, making for the nation’s largest Division I-A conference. The BIG EAST Conference’s goals have always been the same. The outstanding performances of the student-athletes at BIG EAST schools are evidence of the league’s proud tradition of success. The league has always been able to boast that many of its best students are also its best athletes. The 2010-11 year was no different. Seven BIG EAST student-athletes were named NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship winners, while 22 earned Capital One Academic All-America recognition. Maya Moore, Connecticut’s women’s basketball standout, won the NCAA HondaBroderick Cup as the nation’s top female studentathlete and was chosen as the Capital One Academic All-America of the Year. In the athletic arena, BIG EAST student-athletes again enjoyed success on the national stage. The Connecticut men’s basketball team won its third national championship, completing a magical run through five games of the BIG EAST Championship and six wins in the NCAA tournament. The Villanova women’s cross country team won the NCAA title for the second straight year and the ninth time overall. The Notre Dame women’s soccer team won its third NCAA title, while BIG EAST teams reached national championship games in women’s basketball (Notre Dame) and men’s soccer (Louisville). The BIG EAST placed two teams in the NCAA Women’s Final Four for the second time in the last three years as Connecticut joined Notre Dame in Indianapolis, capping a season in which the Huskies extended their NCAA-record winning streak to 90 games. Individually, BIG EAST student-athletes won five NCAA championships, including an unprecedented four by Villanova’s Sheila Reid. Reid was the 2010 individual cross country champion, a member of the Wildcats’ winning indoor distance medley relay team and won the 5,000- and 1,500-meter titles in outdoor track & field. Louisville’s Matt Hughes, meanwhile, repeated as the NCAA champion in the 3,000-meter steeplechase at the NCAA outdoor meet. Moore and Reid joined Notre Dame soccer standout Melissa Henderson as winners of Honda Sports Awards as the top performers in their respective sports. Moore also became the first three-time winner of the Wade Trophy as the nation’s top women’s basketball player and joined Villanova lacrosse player Brian Karalunas as winners of the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award. BIG EAST football maintained its national profile as a competitively balanced group. Connecticut claimed the league’s Bowl Championship Series bid for the first time as the Huskies shared the conference title with Pittsburgh and West Virginia. Six of the league’s eight squads went to bowl games and helped the BIG EAST post a 4-2 bowl record for the second straight year. The BIG EAST became the nation’s largest Division I-A conference in 2005-06 when five new

members began competing – the University of Cincinnati, DePaul University, the University of Louisville, Marquette University and the University of South Florida. BIG EAST institutions reside in nine of the nation’s top 35 largest media markets, including New York, Chicago, Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., Tampa, Pittsburgh, Hartford, Cincinnati and Milwaukee. With its newest members, BIG EAST markets contain almost one-fourth of all television households in the U.S. When Texas Christian University joins the conference in the 2012-13 academic year, the conference will have a footprint in 30 percent of the nation’s television households. Since opening its doors in 1979, the league has won 31 national championships in six different sports and 133 student-athletes have won individual national titles. 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 ’0203, 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 four of the last 13 NCAA championships. BIG EAST women’s teams have taken seven of the last 12 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. The conference currently crowns champions in 24 sports. 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 show a balance between intercollegiate athletics and academics. Any successful organization has had the good fortune to have outstanding leadership. The BIG EAST primarily was the brainchild of Dave Gavitt, who was the conference’s first Commissioner. Michael Tranghese, the league’s first full-time employee, and for 11 years the associate to Gavitt, became Commissioner in 1990. In his first year, he administered the formation of The BIG EAST Football Conference. John Marinatto, who had served as senior associate commissioner, moved into the Commissioner’s chair in 2009 and has continued to steer the conference on its path of success. 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 longstanding 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 eight years. Attendance figures also are significant in soccer and baseball. The BIG EAST has its headquarters in Providence where the conference administers to more than 5,500 student-athletes.
