Facilities Alumni Stadium

Alumni Stadium, the home to the Notre Dame men’s and women’s soccer programs, opened in 2009 to rave reviews. The $5.7 million state-of-the-art facility resides just east of Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center on the Notre Dame campus and features a natural grass field, lights, locker rooms, team lounges, restrooms and concession areas. The lead benefactors for the facility are former Irish soccer players Tom Crotty and Rob Snyder.

Alumni Stadium played host to its first regular-season match on September 1, 2009. The Fighting Irish men’s squad topped Michigan 5-0 in the opener. The official stadium dedication took place on April 24, 2010, during the annual soccer alumni weekend.

The interior of the stadium pays homage to the history of Fighting Irish soccer and the many accomplishments throughout the years. The facility features over 3,000 permanent seats. Additional seating is available on each end line.

Alumni Stadium is part of the athletics quadrangle on the east side of the Notre Dame campus. The player lounge features abundant study space along with a flat-screen television and a projection screen.

2012 Preview

Senior forward Ryan Finley is coming off a season in which he led the Fighting Irish in goals (7) and points (16). He earned second-team all-BIG EAST honors in 2011.


2012 Season Outlook

Something to Prove

Irish determined to bounce back from disappointing 2011 campaign. Head coach Bobby Clark knows his Notre Dame men’s soccer squad will have no problem finding motivation for the 2012 campaign. Despite posting the program’s 11th straight winning season with a 9-5-4 mark in 2011, the Fighting Irish did not qualify for the NCAA tournament for the first time during Clark’s 11 seasons at Notre Dame. “It’ll be a very determined team that comes into the 2012 season,” states Clark. “Although there were many highs and many excellent performances with last year’s team, I feel the biggest disappointment is not making the tournament for the first time in 11 years. That was a huge disappointment. This will be a very determined team. That is something that’s very clear.” Notre Dame welcomes back several key components, especially in the midfield and attacking units, for what hopes to be a successful run in 2012. The Irish return 25 of their 27 goals scored from last season. Senior forward Ryan Finley is coming off a season in which he led Notre Dame in goals (7) and points (16), while midfielder Adam Mena, who is entering his fifth season, collected a team-best five assists.

Mena is among a deep and experienced midfield line. Irish co-captains Dillon Powers and Michael Rose both bring skill and veteran leadership to the unit. Powers, a two-time all-BIG EAST honoree, started every match last season and tallied one goal and four assists. Rose missed the first 10 games of the ’11 campaign with a knee injury, but still managed to produce two goals and one assist in eight appearances. Along with Finley, Notre Dame has three other experienced players in the attacking unit. Junior Harrison Shipp has played in every match during his first two seasons in an Irish uniform. He recorded five goals and two assists in 2011. Senior Danny O’Leary started all 18 matches last season and tallied three goals and one assist, while junior Leon Brown had 17 starts and recorded one goal and two assists. “There’s really good depth and a lot of experience in this group,” adds Clark. “When I’m talking about experience, it’s players who have been here a little while and they’ve experienced some highs and some lows. It’s great when you have players on your team who have tasted some highs because they want to get back there and this group will want to do that.”

last year. I think the seniors and the fifth-year seniors will really want to go out on a high note.” ATTACK Finley, a 2011 second team all-BIG EAST selection during his first season with the Irish after transferring from Duke, will occupy the high forward position with Shipp and Brown being the top two underneath forwards for the Irish. Clark also feels that both Shipp and Brown could move to the wide areas of the midfield if needed. O’Leary, who also can play in the midfield, will likely split time with Finley up top. Providing additional depth to the attack will be junior Alex Priede and sophomore Vince Cicciarelli. Priede has played in two career games, while Cicciarelli did not play during his rookie campaign and will miss a portion of the 2012 season due to a knee injury suffered in the spring. When able to compete, Cicciarelli provides a different dimension to the Irish attacking unit because of his size.

The Fighting Irish did lose three quarters of their starting backline to graduation, but senior Grant Van De Casteele returns to start in the central defense for the third straight season. Goalkeeper Will Walsh, a fifth-year senior, also is back after starting every match last season. Walsh notched a 0.83 goalsagainst average and a .795 save percentage in addition to posting five shutouts during the 2011 season. He has 25 career starts and a 12-7-6 record. “It’s really important that we reach our potential,” states Clark about the 2012 Irish squad. “This team has potential, but a lot of teams have potential. The challenge for this team is to realize their potential. The determination is something that has been born out of the disappointment from the 2011 season.

“There is good leadership in this group because there are a lot of seniors who definitely had their pride dented a little bit

Freshman Patrick Hodan also may see time at the forward position. Clark really likes his craftiness and ability to score goals along with his versatility. “It’s a very experienced group,” says Clark of his attacking unit. “Ryan Finley, the top scorer from last season, comes back. He can be partnered with Harrison Shipp and Leon Brown. Both are excellent underneath forwards. In fact Harry and Leon don’t need to play as underneath forwards; they could play in the midfield and they could play wide. Danny O’Leary can play up high as well. Vince Cicciarelli adds another dimension for us. Alex Priede is someone who goes for 90 minutes. He’s quick, fast, determined and relentless. Patrick Hodan is a first-class player. He has the ability to score goals. He’s just a crafty player, in many ways not unlike Shipp and Brown.” MIDFIELD Joining returning veterans Powers, Mena and Rose in the starting lineup will most likely be sophomore Nick Besler, who came off the bench in 13 games during his rookie season. Besler will pair up with Powers in the central midfield, while Mena will play on the left side and Rose will be on the right. “We have a lot of experience and strength in the midfield and at the forward positions,” states Clark. “Nick Besler did a good job spelling Chris Sutton during games last year. We’re hoping he can fill the gap that Chris left. We’re also hoping for a healthy Dillon Powers. We have Michael Rose and Adam Mena both coming back for fifth seasons. That’s real quality right across the board.” Sophomores Brendan Lesch and Robby Gallegos also figure to see quality minutes in the central midfield. Lesch played in two matches as a freshman before suffering a season-ending knee injury. Gallegos will look to make his Fighting Irish debut this season. Seniors Bob Novak and Kyle Richard will provide support in the wide areas of the midfield as can their classmate O’Leary. Novak started eight of the 10 matches he played in last season and tallied one goal. Richard has played in 26 matches, including eight starts, over the last two campaigns. He missed a good portion of the spring season with an injury, but figures to be at full strength in the fall.

“We have tremendous speed in the wide area with (Danny) O’Leary, (Michael) Rose, (Kyle) Richard and (Adam) Mena,” adds Clark. “They are all experienced players who can play. The big thing with Rose is that he can play a whole lot of roles. He can play in the midfield, he can play as a fullback and he can play up front.”

GOALKEEPER Clark feels that junior Patrick Wall will battle Walsh for the starting goalkeeper spot. Wall is the only other goalkeeper on the Fighting Irish roster that has seen regular-season match action. He played in one game during the 2011 campaign.

Junior Kyle Craft along with freshmen Connor Klekota, Danny Lojek and Evan Panken provide additional depth to the Fighting Irish midfield unit.

“It’s going to be a goalkeeper battle between (Will) Walsh and (Patrick) Wall. Pat (Wall) has come out from being a backup into being a serious challenger for the starting spot.”

DEFENSE The Fighting Irish have three holes to fill on the backline. Clark envisions that junior Andrew O’Malley will team up with returning starter Van De Casteele in the central defense. O’Malley has been limited to just one career appearance while waiting behind talented veterans in front of him on the depth chart. Junior Connor Miller is coming off a solid spring season and he too will be in the mix in the central midfield. Miller has yet to play in a match for the Irish. Junior Luke Mishu is the likely starter at right back. Mishu gained valuable experience last season as he played in 10 matches, including six starts, due to injuries in the Irish defense. He also notched one assist during the 2011 season. Sophomore Max Lachowecki, who did not see match action as a freshman, is a strong candidate to start at left back.

Notre Dame’s goalkeeping unit also features junior Adam LaPlaca and freshman Brian Talcott. “We have four very strong goalkeepers,” says Clark. “Will Walsh has the most experience as a fifth-year senior. Pat Wall had a tremendous spring. Adam LaPlaca is one of the most fit players in the group. None of these three goalkeepers would let the squad down. Brian Talcott is a first-class goalkeeper. We know Brian from camp so we know he’s a good goalkeeper, but he’s young. It’s always hard for a young goalkeeper to come in and make an impact, but he’s there to learn.”

“A lot of different things can happen in the back,” says Clark. “There’s no question that’s where the biggest holes to fill are. We lost Greg Klazura, Michael Knapp, Aaron Maund and even Chris Sutton, who was a defensive midfielder. The good news is that Grant Van De Casteele comes back and hopefully we can get him fully fit. Grant played all of last season, but he’s struggled with fitness in each of the last two years a little. I think this is the most fit we’ve seen him and we’re keeping our fingers crossed.” Senior Eric Tilley gives Notre Dame depth at both fullback positions. He has not played in a match yet with the Irish, but could be a factor this season. Sophomore Trevor Gonzales joined the Irish in the spring and he provides the squad with another option in the backline. Freshman Michael Shipp, the younger brother of Harrison Shipp, will likely see his first collegiate action at right back, but he could also move to the midfield if needed. Will Walsh

Coaching Staff

Bobby Clark has guided Notre Dame to 10 NCAA Championship appearances, including four treks to the Round of 16 and trips to the quarterfinals in 2006 and 2007.


Head Coach Bobby Clark Head Coach 12th Season Jordanhill College ’67

Bobby Clark’s formula for success and his reputation for assembling winning teams are evident after 11 seasons at Notre Dame. The charismatic and affable Irish leader has guided his Notre Dame teams to 10 NCAA Championship appearances, a BIG EAST tournament title in 2003 and three BIG EAST regular-season crowns (2004, 2007 & 2008). Notre Dame reached new heights within the program by advancing to the NCAA tournament quarterfinals for the first time ever in 2006 and made a repeat appearance in 2007. Since coming to Notre Dame in January of 2001, Clark, a native of Scotland, has engineered a great turnaround. In the two seasons prior to his arrival, the Irish suffered back-to-back losing seasons in 1999 and 2000 with a combined 15-17-5 record. Under Clark, Notre Dame is an impressive 136-64-34 (.654). Clark, a two-time BIG EAST Coach of the Year, became Notre Dame’s all-time wins leader during the 2011 campaign. The Fighting Irish have posted a winning record every season under Clark, including a double-digit win total in 10 of his 11 seasons in South Bend. For his dedication and commitment to the Fighting Irish men’s soccer program, the Notre Dame Monogram Club awarded Clark with an honorary monogram in June of 2011. Winning has been synonymous with Clark wherever he has been. His 25-year resume has produced a glossy .671 winning percentage. Clark’s teams have posted a 289-127-59 mark during his collegiate coaching tenure. Prior to becoming Notre Dame’s fifth head coach, he had successful coaching stints at Dartmouth (1985-93) and Stanford (1996-2000). Clark’s penchant for developing talent is evident in the fact that Notre Dame has produced 60 all-BIG EAST selections from 33 different players. In addition, he has mentored six All-Americans with the Irish, including 2006 M.A.C. Hermann Trophy winner Joseph Lapira. Lapira, a two-time All-America honoree, was the 2006 BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Year. Bright Dike joined Lapira with that honor as he was named the league’s offensive player of the year in 2009 under Clark’s guidance. The Fighting Irish have had 21 Major League Soccer (MLS) draft picks during Clark’s 11 seasons at Notre Dame. The Irish have produced 14 MLS SuperDraft picks since 2007. That mark ranks second nationally.

In 2009, Matt Besler became the highest MLS draft pick in Notre Dame history as he was selected eighth overall by the Kansas City Wizards. Besler was named a 2011 MLS All-Star, becoming the first Irish alum to garner that distinction. Former Irish standout Justin Morrow, a 2010 graduate, was an MLS AllStar selection in 2012. In addition to excelling on the pitch, Clark’s Fighting Irish players also have been successful in the classroom. Besler was named the 2008-09 National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) Scholar-Athlete of the Year. That signified the first time an Irish player ever received that distinguished honor. Besler is one of four Notre Dame players to have garnered Academic All-America honors from the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) under the tutelage of Clark. Another Academic All-American was 2007 graduate Ryan Miller, who became the first current or former Notre Dame player to earn a spot on the United States Men’s Senior National Team roster. Miller was one of 24 players on the U.S. squad that faced Chile in an international friendly in January of 2011. Miller currently plays professionally for Halmstads BK in the Swedish first division. As of July 2012, 16 former Notre Dame student-athletes who played for Clark were competing professionally around the world. Twelve are playing in the United States, while four are overseas. Seven former Fighting Irish players are part of MLS teams, while four are in the United Soccer Leagues (USL) and one is in the North American Soccer League (NASL). The foreign countries represented are England, Ireland, Norway and Sweden. Ryan Nelsen, who played for Clark at Stanford and captained New Zealand during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, plays for the Queens Park Rangers of the English Premier League. Another one of Clark’s former Stanford players, Simon Elliott, joined Nelsen on the New Zealand World Cup squad and most recently played with Chivas USA in the MLS. Nelsen and Elliott are just two of Clark’s pupils that have competed in marquee international events. Notre Dame’s Dillon Powers and Aaron Maund both were members of the United States team that competed at the 2009 U-20 World Cup in Egypt. In August of 2010, Powers was named the MVP of the Milk Cup Tournament as he helped lead the U.S. U-20 squad to the title with a 3-0 record. Greg Dalby, a 2007 Notre Dame graduate and current Fighting Irish assistant coach, captained Team USA as they won Group D during the 2005 U-20 World Cup. In May 2007, Lapira earned a cap with the Ireland Senior National Team during a friendly against Ecuador. Regarded as one of the premier tacticians of the game, Clark has built a reputation of being a true players’ coach; he’s an individual who relates easily to the needs of his players both on and off the field. Clark also has shown that he is very capable of reloading talent without having his team miss a beat on the field. Clark and his staff have consistently brought in nationallyranked recruiting classes that keep the Fighting Irish in contention for league and national success year in and year out. The 2011 season saw the Irish post their 11th straight winning campaign under Clark as Notre Dame went 9-5-4 overall and 5-3-1 in BIG EAST play. The Irish saw their season come to an end in a 1-0 setback to Villanova in the first round of the BIG EAST Championship. The Fighting Irish boasted three all-BIG EAST honorees, including Maund, who was a first-team selection. Powers and Ryan Finley were named to the all-league second team. Powers also continued to illustrate Notre Dame’s success in the classroom as he was named an NSCAA Scholar All-American. Four Irish players garnered scholar all-region accolades. In 2010, Clark guided the Irish to their 10th straight NCAA Championship appearance (a program record). Notre Dame garnered the tournament’s No. 9 seed, which marked the sixth time under Clark that the Fighting Irish claimed one of the 16 national seeds and a first-round bye. Notre Dame fell to

Dartmouth, 2-1 in overtime, in the second round to finish the season with a 10-6-4 record and a No. 21 national ranking in the final NSCAA poll. The Fighting Irish have been ranked in the final NSCAA top-25 rankings during nine of Clark’s 11 seasons at Notre Dame. The Irish went 6-2-1 in BIG EAST play in ‘10 and advanced to the semifinals of the league tournament for the fourth straight season and for the sixth time under Clark. Four Notre Dame student-athletes received all-BIG EAST accolades for the ‘10 season. Headlining the Fighting Irish honorees were first-team selections Jeb Brovsky and Steven Perry. Perry led all BIG EAST players in goals with 12 and was tied for the points lead with 28. Maund and Powers were named to the all-BIG EAST second team. In addition, Brovsky and Perry were named NSCAA Scholar AllAmericans. The 2009 season witnessed Clark notch his ninth NCAA tournament victory during his Notre Dame tenure with a 2-1 first-round win over Green Bay. The Irish suffered a 3-1 setback at Northwestern in the second round to conclude the campaign with an 11-8-4 mark. The Irish finished in second place in the ’09 BIG EAST Blue Division standings with an 8-3-0 record. Notre Dame missed out on winning its second BIG EAST Championship title under Clark as the Irish were taken down in penalty kicks by St. John’s, 5-3, following a scoreless draw in the tournament final. Five Notre Dame players garnered all-BIG EAST honors in ‘09. Michael Thomas joined Dike, who led the league in points (26) and goals (11) en route to earning the league’s offensive player of the year award, on the all-BIG EAST first team, while Morrow was a second-team pick. Brovsky and Maund were selected to the third team.

In 2008, Notre Dame notched a 12-7-2 record, including a 7-2-2 BIG EAST mark to clinch the conference’s Blue Division. That signified the first time in program history the Irish had ever won back-to-back BIG EAST regular-season titles. A 3-0 victory at Cincinnati on Sept. 26, 2008, was Clark’s 100th win during his Notre Dame tenure. The Fighting Irish were seeded 12th for the 2008 NCAA Championship and fell to Northwestern, 2-1, in the second round. Notre Dame concluded the season ranked 16th in the final NSCAA poll. It marked the eighth straight season, all under Clark, in which the Fighting Irish finished their season ranked in the top 20 nationally. Accolades were in abundance for Notre Dame’s ’08 squad. Besler earned the distinction of becoming the first player in

program history to be named both a first-team All-American and first-team Academic All-American. Besler and Dike both were first-team all-BIG EAST selections and headlined a group of five Notre Dame players that copped all-league honors. The 2007 campaign was arguably the greatest season in Notre Dame history. The Irish captured a share of the regularseason BIG EAST title as they tied Connecticut for the Blue Division championship. The Irish went 7-0-4 in league play and were the only BIG EAST squad to go undefeated within the conference. Notre Dame advanced to the finals of the BIG EAST Championship before falling to Connecticut, 2-0. During the season, the Irish peaked at a program-best No. 2 in the national polls.

Notre Dame opened the ’07 season with a 2-1 overtime victory against top-ranked UCLA at the adidas/IU Credit Union Classic in Bloomington, Ind. That would be the first of five triumphs over ranked foes for the Irish on the year. Notre Dame garnered the No. 10 seed for the ‘07 NCAA Championship and following a first-round bye, the Irish topped Oakland University, 2-1. A 2-0 upset victory at No. 7 Santa Clara propelled Notre Dame into the round of eight. The season ended with a 1-0 overtime loss at eventual national champion Wake Forest in the NCAA quarterfinals. The Irish concluded with a 14-5-5 record and a No. 6 ranking in the final NSCAA poll. In what has become a common theme in the Clark era at Notre Dame, the Irish boasted two All-America honorees in 2007. Lapira earned first-team All-America accolades for the second straight season, while Miller was a second-team pick. Miller also earned Academic All-America honors. Lapira and Miller were unanimous first-team all-BIG EAST selections. The duo spearheaded a group of seven Fighting Irish players that copped all-conference accolades. The Irish also ended the ’06 campaign ranked sixth nationally after compiling a 15-6-2 record and finishing third in the BIG EAST Blue Division with an 8-3-0 mark. After earning the No. 12 seed and a first-round bye in the NCAA tournament, Notre Dame knocked off UIC, 1-0, in the second round before taking down defending NCAA champion Maryland, 1-0 in double-overtime, to advance to the quarterfinals for the first time in program history. The win over the Terrapins marked the second straight season in which the Irish topped the defending national champion in postseason play. Notre Dame downed Indiana, the twotime defending national champion, in the second round of the 2005 tournament. Accolades were in store for the ‘06 Irish squad following the unprecedented success. Lapira won the M.A.C. Hermann Trophy as the nation’s top player. He became the first student-athlete in program history to win a national player-of-the-year award. Lapira, who led all NCAA Division I men’s players with 22 goals and 50 points, also captured player-of-the-year honors from Soccer America along with being Notre Dame’s first-ever unanimous first-team All-American. Lapira was named the BIG EAST Offensive Player of the Year, while Dalby was selected as the league’s midfielder of the year. In all, the Irish boasted five all-conference performers. Dalby also earned first-team All-America honors for the second straight season. The 2005 season presented some challenges for Clark as the Irish had to reload after losing a stellar senior class following the 2004 campaign. A difficult slate faced Notre Dame and the Irish responded with a 12-8-3 record and advanced to the NCAA tournament’s round of 16. The Irish posted back-to-back 2-0 shutouts over Western Illinois and Indiana in the first two rounds of the NCAA tournament. The victory against Indiana marked the first time in nine tries that Notre Dame knocked off a defending national champion in regular or post-season play. Dalby became the first player in program history to be named a first-team All-American on three separate lists (NSCAA, Soccer Times, College Soccer News). He also was a unanimous first-team all-BIG EAST selection and a M.A.C. Hermann Trophy semifinalist. Ian Etherington joined Dalby as a first-team allleague member. In 2004, the Fighting Irish faced lofty preseason expectations despite losing key components to a squad that won the BIG EAST tournament the previous year. Notre Dame lost a valuable seven-member class, which contained five all-BIG EAST selections and 35 of the team’s 38 goals in 2003, to graduation. The ‘04 Irish still managed to post a 13-3-3 record that included an 11-game unbeaten streak and they peaked at No. 4 in the national polls.

Head Coach The ’04 squad was led by a stout defense that allowed just nine goals on the season. Notre Dame posted an 8-1-1 conference mark en route en route to the program’s first regular-season BIG EAST title. Clark and his assistant coaches, Brian Wiese and Mike Avery, were named the BIG EAST Coaching Staff of the Year. Six members of the Irish squad earned all-BIG EAST honors, including All-America goalkeeper Chris Sawyer, who received his second straight BIG EAST Goalkeeper of the Year award. Fellow seniors Kevin Goldthwaite and Jack Stewart joined Sawyer on the first-team all-conference team with Stewart winning the league’s defensive player of the year award. The Fighting Irish matched the program’s highest seed ever for the NCAA tournament as they garnered the No. 5 seed for the second consecutive season. A disappointing 2-1 loss to Ohio State in the second round of the NCAA tournament ended the ‘04 campaign for the Fighting Irish, yet the program continued to establish itself as one of the best in the nation. That trend has been evident since Clark took over the reigns in 2001 and it did not take him long to steer Notre Dame to unprecedented levels. Poised with one of the most talented teams in Notre Dame history, Clark and his staff chose “Making History” as the team motto for the 2003 season. The Irish followed that motto perfectly, claiming the program’s second BIG EAST Championship title (the first under Clark), rising as high as third in the national rankings, hosting two NCAA tournament matches at Alumni Field (including a round-of-16 contest) and earning the program’s highest-ever seed in the NCAA tournament (fifth overall). Notre Dame opened the ’03 NCAA tournament with a 4-1 triumph of UW-Milwaukee, yet the season came to an end against Michigan as the Wolverines advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals by winning a penalty kick shootout, 4-3, following a 1-1 draw. The successful ’03 campaign featured regular-season wins over both teams that appeared in the NCAA title game (St. John’s and Indiana). Clark guided his Fighting Irish squad through a memorable run to the BIG EAST Championship crown. The Irish, behind tournament outstanding defensive player in Sawyer, shut out all three opponents to claim the program’s second conference title and first since 1996. The Irish program also received numerous individual accolades for the ’03 season, including All-America honors for senior forward Justin Detter and Sawyer. A school-record eight Irish players earned all-BIG EAST honors. In addition, Detter joined classmate Kevin Richards as the first Clark-era Irish players to be drafted into the MLS. The 2002 season saw Clark lead his team to an impressive 12-6-3 record. The Irish ended the BIG EAST season with a 6-3-1 mark and finished fourth in the league’s final regular-season standings. For the first time in school history, Notre Dame played host to an NCAA tournament match. The Irish defeated Akron, 3-1, in front of the home crowd to advance to the second round of the tournament for just the second time in school history. The run ended with a 1-0 loss at Indiana. Notre Dame defeated four ranked opponents and three top-10 foes during the ’02 campaign. Clark’s squad finished the season 20th in the final Soccer America rankings. Clark wasted little time in bringing the Notre Dame program back into the national forefront in his first season in 2001 as the Irish earned an NCAA tournament berth for the first time since the 1996 campaign. Clark’s squad flourished under his guidance and leadership as the Irish registered a 12-7-0 record, which marked the most victories in five years. He earned his sixth conference coach-of-the-year accolade when he was selected as the BIG EAST Coach of the Year after leading the Irish to a 7-3-0 league mark. Notre Dame tied for second in the final BIG EAST regular-season standings and advanced to the semifinals of the conference championship. It marked the most wins and highest finish ever by an Irish team in seven seasons as a league member.

In addition, five players earned all-BIG EAST accolades, which included two first-team selections (Erich Braun and Detter). Sawyer was named to the 11-member Soccer America All-Freshman Team. Notre Dame also finished 18th in the final NSCAA and Soccer America rankings. Prior to being named head coach at Notre Dame, Clark spent five seasons at Stanford where he produced the most successful era in the history of the Cardinal program. When he arrived on the Palo Alto, Calif., campus, he inherited a team that had produced consecutive 5-12 campaigns and had not posted a winning record in four years. In his five seasons at Stanford, Clark turned the program around, creating a consistent national powerhouse. As Director of Soccer, Clark oversaw both the Cardinal men’s and women’s programs and specifically served as the head coach of the men’s program. In his five seasons at the helm of the Cardinal men, Clark compiled a 71-21-12 (.740) record. Clark guided Stanford to the NCAA tournament each of his last four years (1997-2000), and his 1998 squad was the national runnerup.

His final season with the Cardinal, the 2000 campaign, ranked as one of the most successful in Stanford history. The 18-3-1 record matched the school standard for wins in a season (tying the mark set by his ’98 team). The final national rankings of fourth (Soccer America) and sixth (NSCAA) qualified as the second-highest ever at Stanford. His teams also spent two weeks ranked No. 1 in the country, marking the first time Stanford had ever been atop a collegiate poll in men’s soccer. In 2000, the Cardinal broke nine school records and tied another, earned individual MVP honors at three in-season tournaments and saw 13 players win all-Pac-10 accolades. Included in that number was Nelsen, who was named the Pac-10 Player of the Year, as well as the NSCAA/adidas Collegiate Men’s Scholar-Athlete of the Year. In NCAA play, Clark’s team defeated Cal State Fullerton (4-0) and Illinois-Chicago (6-0) before falling in the quarterfinals to SMU (2-1). Clark led Stanford to its third consecutive NCAA appearance in 1999, the sixth visit to the tournament in school history. The Cardinal season ended in the first round of the NCAA tournament as Santa Clara won a penalty kick shootout following a 2-2


draw. With Stanford’s 12-4-3 overall mark, it finished with double-digit victories for the fourth consecutive year. The 1998 season saw Clark direct the best season in the history of Stanford soccer. Not only did the Cardinal win its first NCAA tournament match, it advanced three steps further to the NCAA title game following wins against San Jose State, San Diego, Virginia and Maryland. Stanford fell to Indiana, 3-1, in the final to finish with a No. 2 national ranking. The team won a school-record 18 matches (18-5-2), surpassing the mark of 16 wins recorded in 1978. Following the season, Clark’s son Jamie became the first Cardinal to be named an NSCAA first-team AllAmerican. In his first season at Stanford in 1996, Clark led the Cardinal to a 10-4-4 record, its first winning season since 1992, and was named the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation Mountain Division Coach of the Year. The 1997 campaign was a break-out year for the program as Stanford posted a 13-5-2 record, earned its first MPSF Mountain Division title, its first top-10 ranking and its first trip to the NCAA tournament in five years. Following the 1997 season, Clark was named NSCAA Far West Region Coach of the Year and garnered MPSF Mountain Division Coach-of-the-Year honors for the second consecutive season. Prior to arriving at Stanford, Clark compiled an impressive soccer background as both coach and player. From 1994-96, as head coach of the New Zealand National Team, he produced a 21-12-3 mark while working with the Senior National Team and the Olympic squad along with the U-20 and U-17 teams. For his efforts, Clark was awarded the 1995 Jim McCullen Trophy, given by the New Zealand national media to the person who did the most for New Zealand soccer. Clark began his collegiate coaching career as the head coach at Dartmouth College from 1985-93. In nine seasons, Clark compiled an 82-42-13 record (.646) and led the Big Green to three Ivy titles (‘88, ’90 and ’92) and a pair of NCAA quarterfinal appearances. His ‘90 team defeated Vermont and Columbia in NCAA action before falling to eventual NCAA runner-up Rutgers. His ’92 squad defeated St. John’s and Seton Hall before losing to eventual champion Virginia. Clark’s Dartmouth teams were ranked in the top-10 for four consecutive seasons, and he was twice named the NSCAA Region I Coach of the Year (1990, ‘92). His ‘90 team finished eighth in the final Intercollegiate Soccer Coaches Association of America poll. Along with his international coaching experience in New Zealand, Clark also coached in Africa and in his native Scotland. In Zimbabwe, he was Director of Coaching with the Bulawayo Highlanders in the Zimbabwean Super League for the 1983-84 season. In Scotland, he was the Youth coach with Aberdeen F.C. in the Scottish Premier League. He was also one of the Scottish Football Association’s staff coaches. Prior to coaching, Clark enjoyed a distinguished professional career in the Scottish League. From 1962-82, he made more than 800 first-team appearances, 696 of which were with the Aberdeen Dons from 1965-1982. With the Dons, Clark won the 1970 Scottish Cup, the 1976 League Cup and the 1980 Premier League Championship. Clark, who represented Scotland at every level of professional soccer, was involved in three of Scotland’s World Cup campaigns as a player in 1970, 1974 and 1978, contributing to the Scottish squad that advanced to the finals of the 1978 World Cup in Argentina. Clark’s success in Aberdeen is legendary. In ’02, he was honored by the team as one of its top-25 members of all-time. In two Scottish off-seasons, Clark played professionally for the Washington Whips of the United Soccer Association (1967), and the San Antonio Thunder of the North American Soccer League (1976). In February of 2009, Clark saw his 38-year British record for consecutive scoreless minutes snapped by Manchester United’s Edwin Van der Sar. Clark went 1,155 minutes without allowing a

Born in Glasgow, Scotland, Clark graduated from Jordanhill College in 1967. He and his wife Bette have three children: Tommy, Jennifer and Jamie. Tommy, a 1992 graduate of Dartmouth, earned a bachelor’s degree in English. He was a regional All-American while playing with the Big Green – and played professional soccer in Zimbabwe, New Zealand and New Mexico. He and his wife are graduates of the Medical School at Dartmouth. They have two children, Hugh and Annabell. Tommy is the founder and CEO of Grassroot Soccer, an international AIDS awareness and education organization that reaches youth in Africa through soccer clinics. Jennifer, a 1994 Dartmouth graduate, served as an assistant for three years to former Stanford women’s soccer head coach Steve Swanson. She also spent time as an assistant women’s soccer coach at Middlebury College. Jennifer is married to former Notre Dame assistant men’s tennis coach Mike

Morgan. The couple has three children, Tamhas, Rory and Mhairi. Clark’s youngest son, Jamie, graduated from Stanford in 1999. A two-time All-American, he played professionally for the San Jose Earthquakes (MLS) and Raith Rovers in Scotland. After serving as an assistant coach under his father for two years at Notre Dame (2006 & 2007), Jamie accepted the head coaching position at Harvard University. Following two successful seasons with the Crimson, he was at the helm of the Creighton University program during the 2010 campaign before taking the head coaching job at the University of Washington in January of 2011. He and his wife, Kate, have one daughter, Noel. Jamie is just one of the coaches who has worked under the elder Clark that is now at the helm of their own program. Wiese currently is the head coach at Georgetown University, while Avery has the same position at Valparaiso University. University of Rhode Island head coach John O’Connor worked under Clark at Dartmouth as did Geoff Wheeler, who is the head coach at Wesleyan University.

Bobby Clark on … philosophy … Experience over the years has shown me that it is great to have good players. But it is more important to have a good team. Being part of a good team allows players the opportunity to both fulfill their potential and enjoy their sport to the fullest, whether they are a starter, a bench player or practice player. challenges … One of the exciting elements of coaching soccer at the collegiate level is the nature of the college structure. With players graduating and leaving the program every year, it forces all coaches to adjust. It is a different team each year because of losing key players, but that is one of the challenges of coaching. Teams are never the same every year. It’s continually changing and always a challenge. Notre Dame … First of all, I am so lucky to be given the challenge and opportunity to be coaching here. I enjoy a new challenge and that is what was so appealing to me about this situation and what I like most about coming to this University. It has always been a solid program, but it is one of the men’s soccer programs in the country that can be truly great. I was a in a similar position at Stanford when I took the job there. Notre Dame is a program with so much potential because of the great academic school it is and the tremendous athletic tradition it has. Notre Dame has everything it needs to become one of the truly great soccer programs nationally. his game/coaching style … Soccer has to be fun for everyone involved – players and coaches. Practice has to be fun. Players have to enjoy being part of a group; they have to enjoy coming to practice. If players are having fun, then they will more receptive to listening and learning what we are teaching them in practice. If they are not having fun, then it will make learning difficult. Even with conditioning drills, the fun should be in everyone doing it together and getting everyone through it as a team. defining a successful season … For me a successful season is being in contention for something at the end of the season. That can mean that if you have a good team, then making the playoffs (in our case the BIG EAST Tournament) or getting a bid in the NCAA Tournament. But if you are not a good team, you can still be playing for your own goals — the goals you have set for that team. A team can be 1-10, but still be very excited about playing for its own goals. As a coach, you have to have realistic goals for your players, and in turn, your players must be realistic in setting their goals for the season. The key always is to have fun. his enthusiasm … As the head coach, it is my responsibility to be enthusiastic and get the players motivated. I’ve never had a problem with that. Every morning I wake up, I’m excited for the challenges that will present themselves to me on that day. My philosophy is a simple one: if you don’t have a passion and excitement for the job, then you shouldn’t be doing it.

Assistant Coach BJ Craig Assistant Coach Fifth Season Gordon College ’93

BJ Craig is entering his fifth season as an assistant coach on the Fighting Irish staff in 2012. Craig joined the Notre Dame program after being an assistant coach at the University of Louisville during the 2007 campaign. Prior to that, he had a four-year stint (2003-06) as head coach at Saint Francis University (Pa.). The Fighting Irish have enjoyed four successful seasons with Craig on the sidelines. Notre Dame has posted a 42-26-14 record, including a 26-10-4 mark in the BIG EAST, along with three NCAA tournament appearances. In his first season with the Irish, Craig helped guide Notre Dame to the 2008 BIG EAST Blue Division title. The Irish have produced 17 all-BIG EAST selections and 12 Major League Soccer (MLS) draft picks since Craig has been on campus. Among those draft selections were MLS All-Stars Matt Besler and Justin Morrow. Besler was on the 2011 all-star squad, while Morrow earned the distinction in 2012. Notre Dame registered a 9-5-4 record in 2011 and went 5-3-1 in BIG EAST play. The Irish saw their season come to an end in a 1-0 setback to Villanova in the first round of the BIG EAST Championship. The Fighting Irish boasted three all-BIG EAST honorees, including Aaron Maund, who was a first-team selection. Dillon Powers and Ryan Finley were named to the second team. Powers also continued to illustrate Notre Dame’s success in the classroom as he was named an NSCAA Scholar AllAmerican. The Fighting Irish sent three players into the MLS following the ’11 campaign. Toronto FC picked Maund in the first round (12th overall pick) of the MLS SuperDraft, while Brendan King went to the Portland Timbers in the second round (27th overall). The Vancouver Whitecaps selected Greg Klazura in the second round (21st overall selection) of the supplemental draft.

In 2010, Notre Dame garnered the No. 9 seed and a first-round bye for the NCAA Championship. The Irish fell to Dartmouth, 2-1 in overtime, during the second round to finish the season with a 10-6-4 record and a No. 21 national ranking in the final National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) poll. The Irish went 6-2-1 in BIG EAST play and advanced to the semifinals of the league tournament for the third straight season. Five Notre Dame student-athletes received all-BIG EAST accolades for the ‘10 season. Headlining the Fighting Irish honorees were first-team selections Jeb Brovsky and Steven Perry. Perry led all BIG EAST players in goals with 12 and was tied for the points lead with 28. The senior duo also was named to the NSCAA Scholar All-America team. Maund and Powers were named to the all-BIG EAST second team and Harrison Shipp was selected to the BIG EAST All-Rookie Team. Brovsky, Perry and Bilal Duckett were picked in the 2011 MLS SuperDraft, while Philip Tuttle was taken in the supplemental draft. The Vancouver Whitecaps FC chose both Brovsky and Duckett, while the New England Revolution selected Perry. Brovsky was the first pick in the second round (19th overall selection) and Duckett was the first pick in the third round (37th overall). Perry went two picks after Duckett in the third round. The San Jose Earthquakes took Tuttle in the second round with the 33rd overall pick.

Season In Review

Central defender Aaron Maund earned all-conference and all-region honors during his senior season in 2011. He also was selected in the Major League Soccer SuperDraft. Maund started all 77 career matches in which he played at Notre Dame.


Season In Review CLARK MOVES TO TOP OF PROGRAM WINS LIST

• Notre Dame’s 2-1 triumph over Bucknell on Sept. 11 moved head coach Bobby Clark to the top of the program’s wins list with 129 victories. Clark surpassed Rich Hunter, who was Notre Dame’s first varsity head coach from 1977-83. Clark has compiled a 136-6434 (.654) record during his 11 seasons with the Fighting Irish.

ALL-LEAGUE HONORS

• Three Irish players garnered all-BIG EAST accolades. Headlining the honorees was senior defender Aaron Maund, who was a first-team selection. Juniors Ryan Finley, a forward, and Dillon Powers, a midfielder, were named to the all-league second team.

REGIONAL RECOGNITION

• Aaron Maund, Dillon Powers and Ryan Finley earned All-Great Lakes Region honors from the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA). Maund and Powers were selected to the second team, while Finley was a third-team honoree.

SOCCER SCHOLARS

• Dillon Powers earned a spot on the NSCAA Scholar All-America second team, while Fighting Irish seniors Greg Klazura (D), Michael Knapp (D), Adam Mena (M) and Chris Sutton (M) were selected to the NSCAA Scholar All-North/Central Region second team.

KLAZURA HAS CLASS

• Greg Klazura was one of 10 finalists up for the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award in the men’s soccer division. To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence – community, classroom, character and competition. An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School®, the Lowe’s Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.

MAUND WAS A MAINSTAY FOR THE IRISH • Defender Aaron Maund started all 77 matches in which he played during his Notre Dame career. The only five games he missed were during his sophomore campaign in 2009 when he was with the United States Under-20 National Team at the U-20 World Cup in Egypt. He started all 51 matches with the Irish since returning from the international competition. Maund played every possible minute on the pitch during the 2008, 2010 and 2011 campaigns.

NATIONAL EXPOSURE

• Notre Dame defeated No. 3 Louisville, 1-0 on Sept. 24, in a nationally-televised game on Fox Soccer Channel. It marked the first time the network broadcast a home Fighting Irish men’s match.

STRONG STARTS

• Notre Dame held a 13-4 scoring edge in the first half of play during the 2011 season. The Fighting Irish scored the first goal in 11 of their 18 matches (two of their games were scoreless draws). Notre Dame only trailed at halftime three times during the season (Marquette, West Virginia, Villanova).

WORKING OVERTIME

• The Irish had a penchant for working overtime during the 2011 campaign as they competed in seven overtime contests. Notre Dame went 1-2-4 in those matches.

CLOSE ENCOUNTERS

• Notre Dame played nine one-goal games during the season. The Fighting Irish were 5-4 in those contests.

BLANKING THE BEST

• Three of Notre Dame’s six shutouts during the season occurred against teams ranked in the top-10 of the final NSCAA poll. The Irish blanked No. 5 Connecticut and No. 10 Indiana in scoreless draws. Notre Dame shutout No. 7 Louisville in a 1-0 victory.

FINLEY HAS FINE FIRST SEASON WITH THE IRISH

• Forward Ryan Finley joined the Irish in 2011 after playing the previous two seasons at Duke. Finley led Notre Dame in both goals (7) and points (16) during the 2011 campaign.

Adam Mena (Sr./M) and Danny O’Leary (Jr./F) both notched three goals, while Michael Rose (Sr./M) had two. Six Irish players scored one goal apiece.

HOME SWEET HOME

• Notre Dame is 12-4-5 at home over the past two seasons. The Irish posted a 4-2-4 mark at Alumni Stadium during the 2011 campaign. The Fighting Irish are 9-2-2 in their last 13 home matches against BIG EAST competition (both regular season and tournament).

GUARDING THE GOAL

• The Irish have not surrendered more than two goals in a single match since a 3-1 loss at Northwestern in the second round of the 2009 NCAA Tournament, a span of 38 games.

Toronto FC picked Maund in the first round (12th overall pick), while King, a midfielder, went to the Portland Timbers in the second round (27th overall). The Vancouver Whitecaps selected Klazura in the second round (21st overall) of the 2012 MLS Supplemental Draft.

ALL-STAR ALUM

• Former Notre Dame All-American Matt Besler was voted a 2011 MLS All-Star. The Sporting Kansas City defender received nearly three times as many votes via AT&T text voting than any other MLS player. Besler became the first Irish alum to be named an MLS All-Star. Besler and the MLS All-Stars fell to Manchester United, 4-0, inside Red Bull Arena.

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.

Francis Patrick O’Connor Award

Byron V. Kanaley Award The most prestigious honor awarded to a Notre Dame student-athlete, the Byron V. Kanaley Award has been presented each year since 1927 to the senior monogram athletes who have been most exemplary as both 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. The Notre Dame men’s soccer team has had 11 of its players honored with the Kanaley Award, which is presented at the spring athletic department awards dinner: Kevin Lovejoy (1981); Bret Hoffmann (1992); Mike Palmer (1994); Chris Dean (1995), Phil Murphy (1999), Connor LaRose (2001), Andreas Forstner (2002), Greg Dalby (2007), Matt Besler (2009), Jeb Brovsky (2011) and Greg Klazura (2012).

This award was first presented in 1993 and is named in honor of a former Notre Dame wrestler who died in 1973 following his freshman year at the University. He was the son of Jane and the late William “Bucky” O’Connor (he played football at Notre Dame in 1942, ’46 and ’47) from Tulsa, Oklahoma. The awards — which go to one female and one male graduating senior student-athlete — are presented to those individuals upon nomination by their head coaches, who best display the total embodiment of the true spirit of Notre Dame as exemplified by their contributions and inspiration to their teams. Among the qualities considered in nominating invididuals – as attributed to Pat O’Connor – are caring, courage, confidence, encouragement, humility, humor, honesty, kindness and patience. The Notre Dame men’s soccer team has had three of its former players honored with the Francis Patrick O’Connor Award, which is presented at the spring athletic department awards dinner: Jean Joseph (1995), Reggie McKnight (2000) and Greg Martin (2003).

Notre Dame captured its second consecutive Midwestern Collegiate Conference tournament crown in 1994 with a 3-2 overtime win against Wisconsin-Milwaukee. During Notre Dame’s seven years as a member of the Midwestern Collegiate Conference, the Irish compiled a 24-13-4 record (.634) in regular-season competition and were 13-4 (.765) in seven tournament appearances. Notre Dame captured the tournament championship in 1988, won back-to-back titles in 1993 and 1994, and advanced to the semifinals of the MCC Tournament all but one season (1990). Notre Dame won the North Division regular-season championship in 1989 as the Irish finished with a 5-0-1 mark. Former Notre Dame head coach Mike Berticelli guided his squad to the regular-season championship in 1993 as the Irish finished with a 5-1 record. The most memorable showing for the Irish in the MCC Tournament came during the 1988 season when the Irish defeated fourth-ranked Evansville and third-ranked St. Louis on successive days to capture the tournament crown and earn the school’s first-ever NCAA bid. All three teams from the MCC were at-large selections into the NCAA tournament that season.

John Guignon was a key member of the Fighting Irish team that captured the MCC tournament title in 1988. He started all 23 games that season and tallied 16 points on six goals and four assists en route to being named to the all-MCC first team.

Head coach Mike Berticelli was instrumental in guiding the Fighting Irish and Konstantin Koloskov to back-to-back MCC tournament titles in 1993 and 1994.

Tim Oates (arm raised) celebrates with teammate Rick Christofer after scoring a hat trick in Notre Dame’s 4-1 win over No. 20 Rutgers in the 1993 season opener. Oates would go on to collect all-MCC first-team honors that season and again in 1994.

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.

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.

Academic Excellence Irish Athletes Again Rank #1 in NCAA Graduation Ratings In 2011, the University of Notre Dame once again claimed the national championship for graduating its student-athletes. Both the federal graduation-rate figures and the NCAA’s Graduation Success Rate (GSR) numbers 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). It marked the fifth year in a row that Notre Dame led the way among FBS institutions in GSR ratings for all studentathletes--and it was the second year in a row Notre Dame had been number one in the federal rates. 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 student-athletes 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 ranked number one in eight of 10 major categories--ranking tied for second in one and fifth in the other. Those match the best results for Notre Dame in the seven years the NCAA has published both the GSR and federal numbers. The eight number-one rankings equal the same number of top rankings that came each of the last two years (in 2009 and 2010 figures). For the third year in a row Notre Dame led the nation in all five GSR categories-for all student-athletes (at 99), male student-athletes (98), female studentathletes (100), black student-athletes (98) and football student-athletes (97, up one point from 2010). Notre Dame also ranks number one in the federal numbers for all student-athletes (91), male student-athletes (87) and female student-athletes (96). In calculations that included all student-athletes 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 student-athletes ranks ahead of the 97 figures for Duke and Boston College. Using the federal formula, Notre Dame graduated a four-year average of 91 percent of its student-athletes, just ahead of Stanford at 90. Notre Dame graduated 96 percent of all women competing in varsity athletics, to rank first among its peer institutions based on the federal calculations (ahead of Stanford and Rice at 94). Among men, Notre Dame’s 87 percent federal rate also was first, ahead of Stanford and Northwestern at 86. Notre Dame graduated 85 percent of its black student-athletes, ranking tied for second nationally (behind Rice) based on the federal rate, and Irish football players graduated at an 83 percent rate, to rank fifth. In the GSR standings, the Irish scored a clean sweep in all five categories. In addition to its number-one ranking for all student-athletes, Notre Dame finished by itself in first among female student athletes at 100, first among male student-athletes at 98 percent (ahead of Duke and the U.S. Naval Academy at 96), first among football players at 97 percent, and first among black student-athletes at 98 percent (ahead of runner-up Rice at 96). Notre Dame Athletics Again 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. The 2012 report released by the NCAA featured a four-year compilation of APR data 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-inaid on every team at every NCAA Division I college and university. Eight Notre Dame’s 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 release followed the 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. The APR provides a real-time look at a team’s academic success each semester, by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete. The APR includes both retention at institution and academic eligibility in its calculation and provides a clear picture of the academic culture in each sport. BIG EAST Academic All-Stars 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 men’s soccer program boasted 18 BIG EAST Academic All-Stars for the 2011-12 academic year. In addition, Adam Mena, a fifth-year senior midfielder on the 2012 Notre Dame squad, was the recipient of the 2011-12 American Eagle Outfitters BIG EAST Institutional Scholar-Athlete Scholarships. The BIG EAST annually awards one male and one female from each member school with the American Eagle Outfitters BIG EAST Institutional Scholar-Athlete Scholarships.
