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.

University Leadership Rev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C. President

R

ev. John I. Jenkins, C.S.C., is in his second five-year term as the 17th president of the University of Notre Dame. His vision is for Notre Dame to be the Catholic research university for our time – an institution that unifies, enlightens and heals by engaging in scholarship of the first rank while maintaining its distinctive Catholic character and long-time excellence in undergraduate education. During his tenure, Notre Dame has made significant progress toward its research goal, including selection as the lead partner in the Midwest Institute for Nanoelectronics Discovery, the creation of the Innovation Park research facility, and the construction of Stinson Remick Hall of Engineering. His commitment to undergraduate education has been marked by the Notre Dame Forums, yearlong initiatives that have examined important issues such as religion and world conflict, global health, immigration and energy.

The University’s Catholic identity has been strengthened during Father Jenkins’ tenure in multiple ways, including the appointment of a coordinator for University life initiatives and the construction of multimillion-dollar facilities for the Institute for Church Life, including the Center for Social Concerns, and the Institute for Educational Initiatives, which includes the Alliance for Catholic Education. Father Jenkins earned bachelor’s and master’s degrees in philosophy from Notre Dame in 1976 and 1978, respectively, and was ordained a priest of the Congregation of Holy Cross in 1983. He holds advanced degrees from Oxford and the Jesuit School of Theology. He is a professor of philosophy and the author of Knowledge and Faith in Thomas Aquinas. A native of Omaha, Neb., Father Jenkins was born Dec. 17, 1953.

Jack Swarbrick

Vice President • Director of Athletics

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 fifth year in 2012-13 as vice president and director of athletics at his alma mater. During his time at Notre Dame Swarbrick has attached his signature to a variety of new initiatives: • Launching Fighting Irish Digital Media—a major initiative that will deliver better information about and access to Notre Dame and its athletic programs via expanded production and distribution of programming. • Creation of new community outreach and youth programming functions through student-athlete welfare and development office. • Building of student-athlete programs and services that expand recognition of high academic achievement—and mentor and facilitate career development. • 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. The past four years combined have featured a variety of on-and off-the-field Notre Dame athletics successes: • Number-one rankings for Notre Dame (among Football Bowl Subdivision schools) in the four most recent Graduation Success Rate (GSR) surveys--in 2008 with a 98 for all student-athletes, in 2009 with a 99 (including a 97 score in football that also ranked number one), in 2010 at 99 (including football number one at 96) and again in 2011 at 99 (including football number one at 97). -- 124 All-Americans, 21 Academic AllAmerica selections and five NCAA Post-Graduate Scholarship winners. -- Record involvement in community service hours by Irish student-athletes. -- NCAA championships in 2011 in fencing (a men’s and women’s combined championship) and 2010 in women’s soccer. -- NCAA runner-up team finishes in 2012 and 2011 in women’s basketball, 2010 in men’s lacrosse, 2009 in fencing and 2008 in women’s soccer. -- NCAA semifinal appearances in men’s lacrosse in 2012, hockey in 2011, women’s tennis in both 2009 and 2010 and women’s soccer in 2009, plus 2010 and 2012 third-place fencing finishes. -- National coach-of-the-year honors for Randy Waldrum in women’s soccer in both 2010 and 2009 and for Mike Brey in men’s basketball in 2010-11--to go with a 2011 Hall of Fame induction for women’s basketball coach Muffet McGraw and a Hermann Trophy for women’s soccer national player of the year Kerri Hanks in 2008. -- Construction of the 5,022-seat Compton Family Ice Arena that opened for the 2011-12 season and features two sheets of ice (one Olympic sized). The 2009-10 school year also featured 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, one of the largest in the state. He was made partner in 1987 and spent 28 years with the firm. As a member of the Indiana Sports Corporation, including the chairmanship from 1992 to 2001, Swarbrick led many of Indianapolis’ successful proposals to a wide array of athletics organizations--from the National Football League (NFL) to the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) 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 (NCAA) national headquarters in 1999. • Hosting the 1987 Pan American Games, where Swarbrick served as the director of competition. • Hosting the 1991 World Gymnastics Championships. • Hosting NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Fours and other college championship competitions and a wide array of national and world championships in the Olympic sports. • Securing rights to host the Big Ten Conference men’s and women’s basketball tournaments at Conseco Fieldhouse for five consecutive years beginning in 2008. At Baker & Daniels Swarbrick served as general counsel for numerous national governing bodies of Olympic sports, including USA Gymnastics, and as a consultant to various bid cities and host committees for Olympic Games and world championships. 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; developed the business plan for the new NBA/NCAA youth basketball enterprise, iHoops; served as a member of the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Discussion Group, and chaired the NCAA/USOC task force dedicated to developing proposals to expand sponsorship of Olympic sports among NCAA member institutions. 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 he was honored by the State of Indiana with the Sagamore of the Wabash Award. In 2002 he received the Pathfinder Award from Youthlinks Indiana for his service to youth in the state of Indiana. 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 junior at TCU; and Christopher, a University of Notre Dame sophomore.

Academic Excellence Irish Athletes Again Ranked #1 In NCAA Graduation Ratings The University of Notre Dame once again claimed the 2012 national championship for graduating its student-athletes in all sports -in the process posting the top NCAA Graduation Success Rate (GSR) figure (99) for its studentathletes for the sixth straight year. The GSR number for all Notre Dame student-athletes rated the Irish first among the 120 football-playing institutions in the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly Division I-A). The 2012 NCAA figures are based on entering classes from 2002 through 2005. Whether measured by the federal government in its Department of Education report or by the NCAA through its GSR numbers, graduation rates for Notre Dame studentathletes once again ranked either number one or among the handful of national leaders in five major categories among all major footballplaying colleges and universities. Notre Dame’s institutional research found that Irish student-athletes in 2012 ranked number one in five of 10 major categories -- ranking second in three others and third in

another. That’s based on the NCAA-issued GSR and federal figures. For the fourth year in a row Notre Dame led the nation in four GSR categories--for all student-athletes (at 99), male studentathletes (98), female student-athletes (100) and football student-athletes (97). Notre Dame also ranked number one in the federal numbers for male student-athletes (89). In calculations that include all studentathletes in all sports, Notre Dame ranked first among the FBS schools in the GSR figures, which were initiated in 2005 by the NCAA. The University’s 99 percent GSR for all its studentathletes ranked just ahead of the 98 figure for Duke. Using the federal formula, Notre Dame graduated a four-year average of 91 percent of its student-athletes, just behind Stanford at 92. In the GSR standings, the Irish led the way in four categories. In addition to its numberone ranking for all student-athletes (99), Notre Dame finished first among female student athletes at 100 (tied with Wake Forest), first among male student-athletes at 98 percent (ahead of Duke and Northwestern at 96), first among football players at 97 percent (tied

with Northwestern), and second among black student-athletes at 98 percent (behind only Rice at 100). Notre Dame graduated 94 percent of all women competing in varsity athletics to rank second among its peer institutions based on the federal calculations (behind Stanford at 96). Among men, Notre Dame’s 89 percent federal rate also was first, tied with Stanford. Notre Dame graduated 82 percent of its black student-athletes, ranking third based on the federal rate, and Irish football players graduated at an 83 percent rate, to rank sixth. Nineteen of 22 athletics programs at Notre Dame compiled graduation rates of 100 percent, and none were below 91 percent, according to the eighth year of GSR measurements developed by the NCAA . None of the 120 Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly NCAA Division I-A) programs in the country had a higher percentage of 100 GSR scores than did Notre Dame with its .863 number (19 of 22). In addition, Notre Dame ranked second among all FBS institutions with nine perfect scores among 22 sports (.409) in the federal graduation rate analysis.

Notre Dame Athletics Leads The Way in NCAA’s APR Twelve University of Notre Dame athletic teams earned perfect 1,000 scores -- more perfect scores than any other Football Bowl Subdivision school registered -- in the eighth annual set of Academic Progress Rate statistics issued by the NCAA. All 26 Irish athletics programs again exceeded the NCAA’s APR standards. Notre Dame’s 12 perfect scores of 1,000 led all FBS programs. Boston College and Duke tied for second with nine each, followed by Northwestern (eight), Vanderbilt (eight), Stanford (seven), North Carolina (five), Rice (five) and Texas (five). The 2012 report released by the NCAA featured a four-year compilation of APR data

UNIVERSITY of NOTRE DAME®


from the 2007-08, 2008-09, 2009-10 and 2010-11 academic years. The APR uses a series of formulas related to student-athlete retention and eligibility to measure the academic performances of all participants who receive grants-in-aid on every team at every NCAA Division I college and university. Eight Notre Dame men’s teams -basketball, cross country, golf, hockey, lacrosse, tennis, indoor track and field, and outdoor track and field -- registered perfect 1,000 scores. In addition, four Irish women’s teams -- cross country, golf, softball, and swimming and diving -- also earned perfect scores. Eleven other Notre Dame teams produced scores of 991 or better: women’s rowing (998), men’s swimming and diving (997), women’s lacrosse (997), women’s soccer (997), women’s indoor track and field (997), women’s outdoor track and field (997), baseball (995), women’s volleyball (994), men’s soccer (993), women’s tennis (992) and men’s fencing (991). The report followed the summer announcement by the NCAA of teams that

posted multi-year APR scores in the top 10 percent of all squads in their respective sports. The public recognition awards were part of the broad Division I academic reform effort. Notre Dame had 17 of its programs honored for the multi-year achievement -- baseball, men’s basketball, men’s cross country, men’s golf, men’s ice hockey, men’s lacrosse, men’s swimming and diving, men’s tennis, men’s indoor track and field, men’s outdoor track and field, women’s cross country, women’s golf, women’s soccer, softball, women’s swimming and diving, women’s indoor track and field, and women’s outdoor track and field. Notre Dame also had 17 programs honored in 2011 and 14 programs honored in both 2010 and 2009. Eleven Irish programs were honored each of the previous two years, in both 2007 and 2008. Notre Dame this year led all FBS schools in number of programs honored, with Duke second with 13. Next in line were Boston College, Northwestern and Stanford with 10 each.

Fighting Irish Tennis Receives BIG EAST Academic Recognition The BIG EAST Conference annually recognizes student-athletes who achieve an annual grade-point average of 3.0 or higher as conference academic all-stars. The Fighting Irish women’s tennis program boasted six BIG EAST Academic All-Stars in 2011-12. Senior Shannon Mathews was honored with a BIG EAST Scholar-Athlete Sport Excellence Award, one of five Notre Dame studentathletes bestowed with the recognition from the conference. Mathews was also a threetime ITA Scholar-Athlete and a four-time BIG EAST Academic All-Star at Notre Dame. Along with men’s soccer student-athlete Adam Mena, Mathews received a 201112 American Eagle Outfitters BIG EAST Institutional Scholar-Athlete Scholarship. The league annually awards one male and one female from each member school who exhibit academic excellence with a BIG EAST Institutional Scholar-Athlete Scholarship.

Fighting Irish

2012-13 Season Preview Co-captain Chrissie McGaffigan will look to provide key, veteran leadership in her final season at Notre Dame. The lone senior on the 2012-13 roster, McGaffigan logged 47 combined wins (19 singles, 28 doubles) for last season’s BIG EAST champion Fighting Irish squad.


Season Preview

Young, Experienced Fighting Irish Lineup Looks To Continue Winning Ways Six returnees and four newcomers look for sixth straight BIG EAST Conference crown. After winning a fifth consecutive BIG EAST Conference Championship in 201112, the 12th league title in 17 years as a conference member, the University of Notre Dame women’s tennis team saw its season end in the second round of the NCAA Championship. Despite losing senior standouts Kristy Frilling and Shannon Mathews to graduation, 24th-year head coach Jay Louderback and the Fighting Irish bring a youthful but seasoned core group of players to the court in 2012-13. Frilling, the only five-time All-America selection in the history of the program, wrapped up her Notre Dame career with a sparkling 106-43 singles record and an equally impressive 109-27 mark in doubles play. Her 235 combined wins tied her with Kali Krisik for third on the school’s all-time victories list. Frilling also was named BIG EAST Player of the Year twice (2010 and 2011) and was a two-time Intercollegiate Tennis Association ScholarAthlete (2011 and 2012) and a three-time BIG EAST Academic All-Star (2010-12). Mathews enjoyed one of the most decorated senior seasons in Fighting Irish history in 2011-12, going 21-9 in singles and 30-9 in doubles with Frilling, at one time reaching the No. 1 position in the ITA Women’s National Doubles Rankings. Mathews was recognized as the BIG EAST Conference Player of the Year, the ITA Midwest Senior of the Year and was chosen as an ITA Doubles All-American along with Frilling. “You don’t replace Frilling and Mathews. They played one and two (singles) for most of their careers, and as freshmen were instrumental in us reaching the national final four,” Louderback says. “They were very important players, and you can’t just replace that. With only one

senior we will be young, but we have a big junior class, which will help us with experience.” Co-captain Chrissie McGaffigan, the team’s only returning senior, looks to continue the success she has already enjoyed in the first three years of her career. The Davenport, Iowa native enters her final season with a 55-39 all-time record in singles play after finishing with a 19-14 mark in 2011-12. Where McGaffigan has really made her mark is in doubles competition, and her 65 career victories are the most among Notre Dame returnees. Along with junior co-captain Jennifer Kellner, the pair compiled a brilliant 28-8 doubles record last season that included a seven-match unbeaten streak. Kellner also excelled in singles competition during her sophomore campaign, logging a 26-8 record from the primary third position. She had a string of nine wins in 10 matches to cap the transition from the fall to the spring slate, highlighted by a 6-4, 4-6, 6-4 triumph over No. 110 Marie Casares of then-No. 18 Vanderbilt. Kellner has won 78.5 percent (51-14) of her singles tilts in her first two years with the Fighting Irish, the best winning percentage of any player on the active roster. Fellow junior Julie Sabacinski will look to build on her solid sophomore season in 2012-13. Sabacinski and doubles teammate Britney Sanders reached a high mark of 60th in the ITA Women’s National Doubles Rankings last year. The duo claimed quality wins over No. 54 Lynn Blau and Elizabeth Kilborn of Georgia Tech (8-3) and Duke’s Mary Clayton and Ester Goldfield (8-5), who also were ranked No. 54 in the ITA poll at the time.

Junior Britney Sanders looks to build on her successful sophomore campaign in 2011-12, where she led the Fighting Irish with 28 singles wins.

The aforementioned Sanders enjoyed a breakout sophomore campaign in singles play, winning a team-high 28 matches with only eight losses. She defeated three opponents ranked in the ITA Top-125, with signature wins coming over No. 73 Wen Sun (Texas A&M), 2-6, 6-4, 7-5, and No. 76 Caroline Price (North Carolina), 6-3, 6-4. Sanders and initial doubles partner Katherine White posted a 12-6 mark as a tandem, downing No. 20 Kate Fuller and Lauren Herring of Georgia 8-6 at the Indiana Invitational for a signature win. Now a sophomore, White (24 combined victories in 2012) and junior JoHanna Manningham add to the seasoned group of returnees that Louderback and second-


year assistant coach Kelcy Flores will have at their disposal. Four newcomers will take the court with Notre Dame for the first time during the fall tournament schedule. Sophomore Molly O’Koniewski joins the Fighting Irish after a stellar freshman season at the University of Virginia, where she compiled a 16-9 record in singles and a 14-8 mark in doubles play. While O’Koniewski is the only addition with prior collegiate experience, the freshmen class arrives with accolades in tow. Quinn Gleason was a key member of three straight undefeated New York State Section 5 Championship teams at Honeoye Falls-Lima High School. Gleason also earned all-state honors on three occasions and was the No. 2-ranked recruit in the state as a senior. Julie Vrabel claimed the doubles championship and finished in the top-five at the 2011 United States Tennis Association 18s National Open. Vrabel added a runner-up finish at the USTA 18s National Winter Championships. Local product Darby Mountford rounds out the team’s additions following a standout career at Saint Joseph High School in nearby Granger, Ind. Mountford earned both all-state and academic allstate first team honors as a senior team captain, posting a perfect 23-0 combined record in 2012. “There’s a good chance that we will be deeper this year than we were a year ago,” Louderback says. “We may not be quite as good at the top of the lineup as we were last year, but our overall depth could be much stronger, which is key.” The Fighting Irish open the 2012-13 season at the adidas Hoosier Classic Sept. 28-30 in Bloomington, Ind. Individual players who qualify will travel to the ITA All-American Championships at the Riviera Tennis Club in Los Angeles the weekend of Oct. 2-7. The USTA/ITA Midwest Regional Championships (Oct. 18-23) in Urbana, Ill. is the only other event on the schedule in October. Fighting Irish players participating at the tournament will look

to earn a bid to the National Individual Indoor Championships Nov. 8-11 in New York City. Notre Dame players not entered in the National Individual Indoor Championships will travel to either the Western Michigan Invitational in Kalamazoo, Mich., or the Lakewood Ranch Invitational in Lakewood Ranch, Fla., during the weekend of Nov. 9-11 to close the fall schedule. Dual matches begin for the Fighting Irish in January, as Bowling Green (Jan. 18) travels to the Eck Tennis Pavilion for the season’s home opening contest. Notre Dame then heads to Illinois on Jan. 20 before taking part in the ITA Kick-Off Weekend Jan. 26-27 in Lincoln, Neb. Georgia Tech, Tennessee and host Nebraska are also scheduled to participate in the tournament. “The winner of the kick-off classic in Lincoln goes to the National Team Indoor Championships,” Louderback says. “The four of us were all in the top-25 last year, and the level of competition will be great for us because it will basically be like the National Team Indoor Championships before the actual tournament.” The month of February opens with the Irish hosting Tennessee (Feb. 2) at the Eck Tennis Pavilion. Showdowns at Iowa (Feb. 4) and the potential appearance at the National Team Indoor Championships in Charlottesville, Va. (Feb. 8-11) set the stage for a home tilt with Purdue Feb. 15. The remainder of the month will see Notre Dame travel to Northwestern Feb. 17, host Baylor Feb. 22, visit in-state foe Indiana Feb. 24 and return home Feb. 28 against Western Michigan. The Fighting Irish open their first multimatch homestand of the dual slate when they entertain DePaul March 2 and Duke March 3. Non-conference trips to Georgia (March 12), UAB (March 14) and Georgia Tech (March 16) follow before Notre Dame returns home to host Michigan (March 27). The Irish close the month at Tulsa on March 30. The trek toward the postseason heats up in April, when Notre Dame opens the month in Milwaukee, Wis., against Marquette (April 2). The Fighting Irish

then close the 2012-13 home slate April 7 against Memphis. A swing through the “Sunshine State,” with matches at Central Florida (April 13) and South Florida (April 14), caps Notre Dame’s regular season schedule. The BIG EAST Championships will be held April 18-21 in Tampa, Fla. The first and second rounds of the NCAA Championships will take place May 11-12 at selected campus sites. The 2013 Women’s Division I Tennis Championships is scheduled for May 17-27 at the Khan Outdoor Complex and Atkins Tennis Center in Urbana, Ill. “Numerous players have stepped up for us in past years, and I think our junior class, in particular, has that potential this season,” Louderback says. “We’ve worked hard this summer, and many of them have already played against top competition and watched the seniors before them. You hope that as they get older, they continue to improve.”

Quinn Gleason is one of three freshmen, and four overall newcomers, who could immediately become regular contributors for Notre Dame.

Coaching Staff

Jay Louderback enters the 2013 season with 610 career dual match wins, the third-most of any active coach in NCAA Division I women’s tennis. In his 23 seasons at Notre Dame, Louderback has won 18 conference championships, including the last five BIG EAST Tournament titles.


Head Coach JAY LOUDERBACK Head Coach 24th Season Wichita State ‘76

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 24th 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 20 seasons and have earned 19 berths to the NCAA Championships in that span. Notre Dame has captured 18 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 host of the 1998 NCAA Championships, largely due to his efforts. Louderback’s players have enjoyed great success under his tutelage. Twenty-nine AllAmerica awards have been given to a total of 12 different players, and four have garnered national awards from the ITA. In 23 years, 13 different Notre Dame players have garnered a total of 29 invitations to the NCAA Singles Championship and 11 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 11 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 16 times in 17 years. Only one Division I school, Western Michigan, has a better mark, as the Broncos have won the award all 17 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 13 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 33 years of coaching, Louderback holds a 655-364 (.643) record, including a 610-333 (.644) mark coaching women’s tennis. At Notre Dame, he is 451-188 (.706), 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 10th in 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 semifinals 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 No. 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 honors 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.

Louderback’s squad also earned a trip to the ITA Indoor Championship. In 2011, 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. The success continued in 2012, as the Irish claimed their fifth consecutive BIG EAST Conference Championship and reached the second round of the NCAA Championships. Notre Dame posted a 21-8 team mark, including a perfect 5-0 in BIG EAST play. Mathews finished her Irish career by earning BIG EAST Player of the Year honors, as well as the distinction of being named ITA Midwest Region Senior of the Year. Frilling ended her decorated career with the thirdmost wins in program history (235), and was named to the All-BIG EAST Team for the fourth consecutive season. Frilling and Mathews also reached the No. 1 ranking in the ITA Doubles poll during the season, and were selected as ITA Doubles All-Americans. 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 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 Flores Assistant Coach Second Season Notre Dame ‘09

Kelcy Flores begins her second season as an assistant coach with the University of Notre Dame women’s tennis team. She joined the Irish after starting her coaching career as a two-year assistant with the University of Tulsa. Notre Dame won its 12th BIG EAST Conference Championship in 2011-12, posting a 21-8 record in Flores’ first season on staff. Over the course of her two-year tenure with the Golden Hurricane, Flores helped Tulsa compile a combined record of 48-9 including two consecutive Conference USA championships and second-round appearances in each of the 2010 and 2011 NCAA Championships.

In 2010-11, Tulsa concluded with a 26-3 record that saw the team climb as high as 19th in the Campbell/ITA rankings. In addition, Flores 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 2009, Flores 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, Flores saw several Tulsa players earn conference recognition, including a record six girls being named to the all-conference team in 2010 as well as Sam Vickers being named Conference USA Freshman of the Year. In 2009, three of Flores’ 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. Flores 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, 2007 ITA National Indoor doubles champion, 2009 ITA National and Midwest Region Senior Player of the Year and 2009 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 2009 and helped the squad to three BIG EAST Championships, earning BIG EAST Most Outstanding Player recognition in both her junior and senior seasons. Flores finished her senior season in 200809 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, Flores 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. Flores 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. A native of Enid, Okla., the former Kelcy Tefft earned two bachelor’s degrees in sociology and computer applications from Notre Dame in 2009.

UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME

Fighting Irish

History & Records

Four-time All-BIG EAST selection Kristy Frilling won 235 combined matches (106 singles, 129 doubles) in her Notre Dame career, tied for the third-most in program history.


Tennis Tradition at Notre Dame With 20 straight finishes in the national top 30, including a program-best No. 2 ranking in 2006 and 2007, and 19 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 24th season at Notre Dame having elevated the Irish to new levels. His teams have captured 18 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 five seasons, Louderback and the Irish have continued to exert their conference and national prowess, claiming five straight BIG EAST Championships en route to earning the league’s automatic NCAA Championship 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 2011 and 2012 seasons saw the Irish advance to the second round before bowing out of the tournament. 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 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 a brilliant four-year career with the Irish program, Frilling also established herself as one of the greats in women’s tennis program history. The only five-time AllAmerican in program history, and a two-time BIG EAST Player of the Year, Frilling served as the primary No. 1 for the Irish from her sophomore season in ’09 on and piled up 42 wins at that court. She also served as part of the main doubles team that amassed a 92-15 dual record on the No.1 court.

Irish All-Americans Notre Dame Women’s Tennis All-Americans In the 36 years of varsity competition, 15 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 13 players earn a total of 29 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. Kristy Frilling set a program record with her fifth All-American honor, and third in doubles, in 2012. The 15 Irish All-Americans are featured below with their qualifying criteria and career stats noted.

First presented in 1993, the Francis Patrick O’Connor Award is named in honor of a former Irish wrestler who died in 1973 following his freshman year at Notre Dame. 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. More women’s tennis players have won the Francis Patrick O’Connor Award than student-athletes from any other sport, including five recipients since 2000.

Byron V. Kanaley Award The most prestigious honor awarded to a Notre Dame studentathlete, 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.

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-toback 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 TennesseeChattanooga 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 Tennessee-Chattanooga. 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 23 of the last 25 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 AllAmerica 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®

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 28 years. The Irish have been league champions 24 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 88-7 (.926) all-time record against conference foes, including 50-2 (.962) 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 12 championships and finished as the league¹s runner-up on five 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 headto-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 and 2012, the Irish again topped South Florida for the title. The Irish faced nowdeparted Miami in the title match of the BIG EAST Championship over nine straight seasons, winning in 1996, ’97, ’99, 2001, and ’03. In 25 early-round matches (first round through semifinals), Notre Dame is undefeated, having registered 24 shutouts. Overall, Notre Dame is 38-5 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 nine times, while Irish student-athletes have been tabbed the league championship’s Most Outstanding Player on nine occasions. 7-5; Iciri Rai (USF) def.

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 315-70 for an impressive .818 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 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 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.

The Courtney Tennis Center has played host to NCAA Championship action 15 times, including serving as the national site of the 1998 NCAA Championships. 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 39 occasions (in 74 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 72 times, with Notre Dame prevailing on 36 occasions. The Irish have been particularly dominant at home against teams not ranked in the national top 25, as Notre Dame holds a remarkable 1707 (.960) record since the 1988-89 season. That includes a current streak of 67 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. 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. 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 was 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.

The BIG EAST Conference The 2012-13 academic year is the 34th 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 and continues to make strides in improving the quality and depth of the storied league. The BIG EAST Conference has been always been driven by lofty goals. 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 2011-12 year was no different. In the athletic arena, BIG EAST student-athletes again enjoyed success on the national stage. The Georgetown women’s cross country team captured its first NCAA Championship. The win by the Hoyas marked the third-straight year a BIG EAST team has won the women’s cross country championship, with Villanova winning the past two. The Louisville men’s basketball team advanced to the Final Four in New Orleans. Connecticut field hockey reached the NCAA semifinals, as did the Notre Dame men’s lacrosse team. The Irish women’s basketball team and Syracuse women’s lacrosse team each reached the NCAA finals. USF softball reached the Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma City, Okla., for the first time in program history. The BIG EAST placed two teams in the NCAA Women’s Final Four for the third time in the last four years as Connecticut joined Notre Dame in Denver, with the Fighting Irish advancing to the national title game for the second-straight year. BIG EAST student-athletes won five NCAA championships. Sheila Reid won her secondstraight NCAA Women’s Cross Country title. Syracuse hurdler Jarret Eaton won the 60-meter hurdle championship in the NCAA Indoor Track and Field Championship. Notre Dame won the distance medley relay at the same championship. Georgetown’s Emily Infeld won the 3,000-meter run. Carlos Almeida of Louisville won the 200yard breaststroke at the NCAA Swimming & Diving Championships. BIG EAST football maintained its national profile as a competitively balanced group. Three BIG EAST teams won bowl games, while the BIG EAST representative in the Bowl Championship Series won its bowl game for the fourth time in the last seven years- a streak that includes wins against the ACC, Big 12 and SEC champions. 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 18 of the nation’s top 50 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 more than one-fourth of all television households in the U.S. The BIG EAST will welcome UCF, Houston, Memphis, SMU and Temple in all sports in 2013-14. Temple football will join the league in 2012, with Boise State and San Diego State joining the following year and Navy in 2015. Since opening its doors in 1979, the league has won 32 national championships in six different sports and 137 student-athletes have won individual national titles through 2011-12. BIG EAST basketball squads have captured 11 titles in the last 13 years. 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. The BIG EAST placed three men’s basketball teams in the Final Four in 1985, the only time this has occurred in NCAA history. 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 was the third commissioner of the BIG EAST, serving from 20092012, after seven years as the conference’s senior associate commissioner. 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 nine 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.
