Connecticut, Georgetown, Rutgers and Syracuse, along with Notre Dame, began conference play in the spring of 2001. Loyola (MD) began its first season as an associate member in 2006. In 2009, the conference welcomed Cincinnati and Louisville as they began full-time play. The Villanova Wildcats brought the league’s roster to nine teams in 2010. The teams will play a round-robin schedule against each of the other eight teams. The BIG EAST Tournament will be played for the seventh time this spring with Georgetown serving as host. The tournament winner receives the automatic bid into the NCAA Tournament. Notre Dame has competed in the BIG EAST Conference since 1995-96 in most of its 26 sports.

Arlotta Stadium Arlotta Stadium has been the home of the Notre Dame men’s and women’s lacrosse teams since 2009 and is widely considered as one of the top lacrosse facilities in the country. The state-of-the-art facility was dedicated on October 17, 2009 and the women’s team played its first game there on March 7, 2010, dropping a 12-8 decision to Dartmouth. The women would win their first game at the new home of Irish lacrosse on March 27, as they knocked off Louisville, 11-9, in a BIG EAST contest. Arlotta Stadium was the site of a historic game for former coach Tracy Coyne’s team as the Irish recorded the first shutout in Notre Dame and BIG EAST history when they blanked Villanova, 16-0, on April 9. Construction on the facility began in August of 2008. The new stadium is a 2,000-seat, lighted playing venue that includes an artificial turf field, spacious locker rooms and player lounges, rest rooms and concession areas. The state-of-the-art facility is named after Notre Dame graduate John Arlotta, president and chief executive officer of Denver-based Coram Inc. He and his wife, Bobbie, pledged the lead gift toward the stadium to be built to the east of the Joyce Center as part of the University’s new athletics quadrangle. The Arlotta children - Mindy, Andy and Jon - also pledged an additional gift from The Arlotta Family Foundation toward the project. In addition to their generous donation, alumni and friends of the lacrosse programs have donated over two million dollars. The new stadium replaces Moose Krause Stadium where the Irish women’s team played for the first 13 years of the program as well as indoors at the Loftus Sports Center.

UNIVERSITY of NOTRE DAME®

The Loftus Sports Center combined with Arlotta Stadium gives the University of Notre Dame some of the top lacrosse facilities in the country. Constructed in 1988, it is one of just six indoor facilities in the country that plays host to Division I women’s lacrosse games. The Loftus Center and the Guglielmino Athletics Complex provides Notre Dame with one of the top multi-purpose indoor facilities in the nation. Complete with the 120-yard synthetic turf Meyo Field, six-lane 352-yard Mondo indoor track and a 9,000-square-foot weight room, it is used by several Irish athletic programs. The building is named after John R. Loftus of St. Charles, Ill., a 1949 graduate of the University. Loftus is chief executive of JRL, a real estate, investment and construction firm. Loftus is also a member of the Notre Dame Monogram Club, having played on the varsity basketball team in 1944, 1948 and 1949. The Meyo Field in the Loftus Center offers Irish lacrosse a 55-by-110 yard synthetic turf playing surface. It was revamped in the summer of 2003 with the addition of Prestige field turf. The field and surrounding track are named for Ray and Marie Meyo of Brecksville, Ohio. Meyo, who graduated from Notre Dame in 1964, is president and chief executive officer of Telxon Corp. in Akron, Ohio, the world’s largest manufacturer of portable tele-transaction computers. The Meyo Field is permanently marked for men’s and women’s lacrosse competition and is used as a backup site for games in the event of inclement weather. The Irish have played several contests in the Loftus Center. In addition to the Meyo Track and Field in the Loftus Center, the Irish lacrosse squad also benefits from the Haggar Fitness Center located in the “Gug” as the Guglielmino Athletics Complex is known, which opened in the spring of 2005. Equipped with more than 40,000 pounds of free weights, it is four times the size of the weight room in the Joyce Center. It is considered by national strength coaches to be one of the largest, and finest, college training facilities in the nation. The Irish women’s lacrosse program has benefited from the Loftus Sports Center since the program began and sports a 77-35 (.688) home record from 1997-2012 between Loftus, Arlotta and Moose Krause Stadium, including a perfect 9-0 mark during the 2006 season. Loftus Sports Center saw its first women’s contest on March 18, 1998, a 15-6 loss to Colgate. Heading into the 2013 season, the Irish are 26-10 (.722) all-time in games played at the Loftus Center.


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.

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.

Season Preview

Junior co-captain and reigning IWLCA third team All-American Margaret Smith leads a talented but young Irish squad into the 2013 season with a consensus top-10 ranking.


Season Preview Optimism Abounds In Halfpenny’s Second Season Coming off an impressive 2012 season, a talented team guns for league and national supremacy. A new era for Notre Dame women’s lacrosse began in 2012 when Christine Halfpenny took over the program and led the Irish to a 13-5 record and trips to the BIG EAST Semifinals and to the first round of the NCAA Championship in her inaugural season. Now in year two, Halfpenny and her squad of 31 have big expectations for the 2013 season. Gone are seven monogram winners that accounted for over 37% of the 348 points on the season, but eight starters return, highlighted by three all-region performers and senior goalkeeper Ellie Hilling. Ten freshmen join the fold to help fill empty positions and add depth. “I would be foolish to say we won’t miss Maggie (Tamasitis) distributing the ball near the goal,” says Halfpenny. “She is a special player. However it has been really nice to see the players that have moved up into that role. I don’t think we’ll have one player that steps into that role completely, but I think a number of players will be dynamic enough to feed, to score off the feed and to drive to the goal.” Leading the way for the Irish are all-region players Lindsay Powell (44G, 23DC), Margaret Smith (37GB, 47DC, 31CT) and Barbara Sullivan (40GB, 32DC, 32CT). Smith and Sullivan were first team IWLCA West/Midwest all-region, while Powell was a second team selection. 2013 Preseason deBeer/ Inside Lacrosse Media Poll Team 1. Syracuse (5) 2.

Smith also became the 15th All-American in Notre Dame history when she was named to the IWLCA third team. All three were named to the preseason all-BIG EAST squad. A plethora of other key contributors return, including seniors Jaimie Morrison (34G, 14GB), Jenny Granger (20G, 12A, 14GB), Betsy Mastropieri (12G), McKenzie Brown (22DC) and Emily Conner (14GB, 14CT), juniors Kaitlyn Brosco (22G), Lauren Sullivan (13G) and Grace Dooley (4G, 10GB, 14DC) and sophomore Caitlin Gargan (11G, 10DC). Also returning is Hilling, who is on pace to break virtually ever goalie record at Notre Dame as she enters her fourth year as a starter. “We are excited to see the season that Jaimie (Morrison) and Jenny (Granger) will have as they are playing with that senior sense of urgency,” says Halfpenny. “They are meshing well with the new players and that should make for a dynamic offense. We want to continue spreading the field and incorporate our high-octane offense. “On defense we are fortunate to have Ellie (Hilling) back there in goal for us. Ellie has unfinished business and the career minutes played rival any goalie in the country. Her game experience is really stepping our defense up another level. She is going to look more dynamic this year, as she has worked hard during the offseason to develop her game even more. She wants to lead the team. She is our quarterback and will start our fast break as she uses her clearing ability and her vision to get our offense going.” Looking to help the returnees are 10 freshmen, highlighted by Lacrosse Magazine’s “Freshman 15” members Stephanie Peragallo and Stephanie Toy. “Our entire freshman class has been unbelievable so far,” says Halfpenny. “They are fast and talented, have proven that they have a high lacrosse IQ and have shown that they are used to playing in big moments. We are very interested to see how they fit in with our team this season.” The Irish must forge through a tough schedule that sees them play three 2012 NCAA Championship teams and five preseason top 20 teams. Four of the five games against ranked foes will be played at the friendly confines of Arlotta Stadium.

A trip to Stanford opens the season Feb. 16, before the Irish open the home schedule Feb. 27 against No. 20 Ohio State. If Notre Dame can come together using veterans and rookies alike to navigate a tough schedule successfully, look for the Irish to be back in the BIG EAST and NCAA Championships as a team capable of making a run in year two of Halfpenny’s tenure.


THE OPENING DRAW Captains Named Head coach Christine Halfpenny named senior Jenny Granger and junior Margaret Smith as co-captains of this year’s squad … Granger, a three-time monogram winner, scored 20 goals, dished out 12 assists, scooped up 14 ground balls and 10 draw controls and caused eight turnovers last season … Smith, a preseason all-BIG EAST selection, is coming off a sophomore campaign where she was named third team IWLCA All-American and first team all-BIG EAST and IWLCA West/Midwest allregion after collecting 37 ground balls and 47 draw controls and causing 31 turnovers. Trio Honored By BIG EAST Juniors Lindsay Powell and Margaret Smith and sophomore Barbara Sullivan were named to the preseason all-BIG EAST team … Smith and Sullivan were unanimous selections … Powell was a second team all-BIG EAST and IWLCA West/Midwest all-region performer last year … Smith was an IWLCA third team AllAmerican and a first team all-BIG EAST and IWLCA West/Midwest all-region honoree … Sullivan was a first team IWLCA West/Midwest all-region and second team all-BIG EAST performer. Tough Schedule When the Irish kick off the 2013 campaign on Feb. 16 at Stanford it will mark the first of many tough challenges for ND during the regular season … the Irish are playing five teams that ended 2012 ranked (Ohio State, Loyola, Georgetown, Northwestern and 2013 Preseason Lacrosse Magazine Poll

Syracuse) and three NCAA Championship teams (Loyola, Syracuse, Northwestern) … Northwestern won the title, Syracuse was runner up and Loyola made the quarterfinals … fortunately all but the Syracuse game will be in the friendly confines of Arlotta Stadium. Senior Leader In The Cage Senior goalie Ellie Hilling brings a wealth of experience to the Notre Dame defense as she is entering her fourth year as starter … heading into the 2013 season, Hilling is second in school history in wins (33) and minutes played (3,205:23), third in games played (54) and fourth in saves (407) … Hilling in on pace to break all four of those records by midseason … last year the Rochester, N.Y., native had seven games with 10-plus saves, including a careerhigh 16 in wins over Ohio State and Georgetown. Records Watch Senior Jenny Granger has 58 career goals … to break into the top 10 she needs 25 … junior Kaitlyn Brosco has 54 career goals … to break into the top 10 she needs 29 … senior Jaimie Morrison (46 career goals) and junior Lindsay Powell (44 career goals) aren’t far behind … Granger is also knocking on the door for career assists … she currently has 27, just 16 behind 10th place … senior Ellie Hilling (118) is just two ground balls behind 10th place … if she reaches her career single-season average, she would move into the top four … Margaret Smith has 68 draw controls through two years and would break into the top 10 with 23 this season … Smith is also on pace to break into the top 10 in caused turnovers … she has 46 through two years and needs just 15 to tie assistant coach Jill Byers for 10th all-time … sophomore Barbara Sullivan would also move into the top 10 in caused turnovers if she has 29 or more this season after causing 32 as a freshman. Talented Freshmen Among the 10 freshmen that will see their first action for Notre Dame in the spring, are a pair of standouts that were named to Lacrosse Magazine’s “Freshman 15” … the two Stephanies, Stephanie Toy and Stephanie Peragallo, were each honored by the magazine back in September. Team USA Junior Margaret Smith, sophomore Barbara Sullivan and assistant coach Jill Byers all reached the final round of qualifying for the US National Team this summer … Byers played for four years on Team USA, while Sullivan was on the 2011 U.S. women’s national under-19 team

that won a gold medal at the U-19 Women’s Lacrosse World Championship in Hanover, Germany. Second Year For Halfpenny The transition year from William & Mary to Notre Dame is over for second-year head coach Christine Halfpenny … Halfpenny didn’t seem to have too much trouble transitioning in her first season, as the Irish jumped out to an 8-0 start on their way to a 13-5 season in which they qualified for the BIG EAST and NCAA Championships … the 13 regular-season wins tied for first in school history, while the 13 wins overall tied for third in school history. Replacing An Impressive Senior Class When eight student-athletes concluded their eligibility last season, the Irish lost some talented performers … among the most notable losses were IWLCA second team AllAmerican Maggie Tamasitis and IWLCA second team West/Midwest all-region performer Megan Sullivan … Tamasitis ended her career as the school’s all-time leader in assists in a half, game, season and career and finished fourth in points … last year Tamasitis had 82 of Notre Dame’s 348 points or almost 24% … Sullivan had a breakout senior year by doing a little bit of everything in the middle of the field … she scored 24 goals, collected 23 ground balls and 27 draw controls and caused 15 turnovers … Sullivan earned second team all-BIG EAST in addition to all-region accolades, while Tamasitis was named first team in both categories. Homecoming For A Pair Of ND Lacrosse Alums With the addition of new assistants Jill Byers and Jake Marmul, head coach Christine Halfpenny brought in two new coaches with deep Notre Dame roots. Byers, a four-time AllAmerican, is a 2009 graduate that still holds a plethora of school records including goals and points in a career … Marmul, a 2011 graduate, played for the men’s team and specialized in the opening draw. Follow The Irish Fans can follow the Irish in a multitude of ways through social media … ND WLAX is on Facebook at facebook.com/NDWLAX … on Twitter (@NDWomensLax) … Coach Halfpenny is also on Twitter (@NDcoachPenny) … on the web at UND.com/sports/w-lacros/nd-w-lacrosbody.html … on the blogs at ndlacrosse. wordpress.com … speaking of the blogs, senior Emily Conner will piggy back her summer series “Lax In The City” with a season-long blog entitled “No Time To ReLAX.”

Head coach Christine Halfpenny (right) returns for her second season under the Golden Dome. Halfpenny’s assistants are Notre Dame alums, Jill Byers (left, ’09) and Jake Marmul (center, ’11). Both return home to Notre Dame for their first season on the sidelines.


Head Coach CHRISTINE HALFPENNY Second Season Virginia Tech ‘99 The Halfpenny File Hire Date: July 26, 2011 Career Record: 56-49 / 6 Seasons Record at ND: 13-5 / 2nd Season NCAA Appearances: 1 Awards and Honors: 2008 – CAA Coach of the Year Education: 1999 – B.S. in Health and Physical Education from Virginia Tech Christine Halfpenny enters her second season as head coach of the Notre Dame women’s lacrosse program in 2013 after five seasons in the same position at the College of William & Mary in Williamsburg, Va. The Irish turned in quite a year in Halfpenny’s first campaign at the helm of the program as they finished 13-5 and earned bids to both the BIG EAST and NCAA Tournaments. The 13 regular season wins was tied for first in school history, while the 13 wins overall was tied for third in school annals. Notre Dame knocked off five ranked teams during the year as they raced out to an 8-0 start, which was the second-best start in school history and the best since 2008.

Halfpenny became the first coach in BIG EAST history to start out 8-0 in their opening year at the helm of their program. Halfpenny helped tutor five all-BIG EAST and IWLCA West/Midwest all-region performers and two All-Americans. Earning allBIG EAST and all-region honors were Maggie Tamasitis, Margaret Smith, Barbara Sullivan, Megan Sullivan and Lindsay Powell. Tamsatis went on to earn second team All-America honors, while Smith was a third teamer. In the classroom, the 2012 squad was an IWLCA Academic Squad team (combined GPA of 3.0 or higher), while three student-athletes made the IWLCA Academic Honor Roll (Kelly Driscoll, McKenzie Brown and Adelle Bruggeman). Halfpenny came to Notre Dame from William and Mary, where her teams achieved four straight 10-win seasons and a pair of regular-season conference titles over her final four seasons with the program. Halfpenny’s Tribe squads captured Colonial Athletic Association regular-season titles in both 2008 and 2009 - and she merited CAA coach-of-the-year honors in 2008. Her teams combined for a 20-8 record in league play (including four straight conference tournament bids) - as William and Mary reached double digits in victories each of the last four seasons (10-7 in 2011 and 2009, 10-8 in 2010, 10-9 in 2008). Those four consecutive 10-win seasons matched the best previous stretch in program history. “Chris brings to Notre Dame the experiences of having been involved with multiple programs and teams that have been to the NCAA final four, won conference titles and produced All-Americans,” says Notre Dame vice president and athletics director Jack Swarbrick. “From a coaching, recruiting and academic standpoint, she understands exactly what the expectations are here at Notre Dame and what it will take for our program to take the next set of steps forward.” Notre Dame’s newest head coach tutored two All-Americans at William and Mary, to go along with 26 all-conference selections and 10 all-region honorees. Her 2011 squad became the first in CAA history to receive awards for player of the year, defensive player of the year and rookie of the year in the same season. Her five seasons with the Tribe produced single-season records for points (347 in 2009), goals (244 in 2009), draw controls

(269 in 2009), caused turnovers (third nationally in 2010 at 12.61 per game) and saves (211 in 2008). In the classroom Halfpenny’s players earned 59 combined CAA Commissioner’s Academic Awards from 2007-2010, as well as five William and Mary Provost Awards. Halfpenny came to Williamsburg in the summer of 2006 after three years (20042006) as the top women’s lacrosse assistant coach at Duke University. The Blue Devils won the 2005 Atlantic Coast Conference postseason tournament title, won or shared three straight ACC regular-season crowns and made three straight


NCAA Championships appearances, advancing to the national semifinals in both 2005 and 2006. Halfpenny worked specifically with goaltenders at Duke, assisting Megan Huether in 2005 in earning first-team All-America honors. She played a key role in producing three recruiting classes at Duke that ranked among the top four in the nation (including the number-one-rated class in 2005 by Inside Lacrosse). The 2004 Duke team produced the top women’s lacrosse grade-point average in the country (3.46). Halfpenny also spent a season as an assistant women’s lacrosse coach at her alma mater, Virginia Tech University, in 2003, directing recruiting and serving as offensive coordinator. She began her coaching career as an assistant coach at Brown University in 2001 and 2002. Off the field Halfpenny has worked with several national committees including the IWLCA All-American program, NCAA site advisory decisions, the Tewaaraton Award and the IWLCA North-South Game selections. Before joining the college coaching ranks she spent a year as boys’ and girls’ swimming coach and assistant varsity tennis coach (winning the Virginia Boys AAA state swimming title) at Cave Spring High School in Roanoke, Va.

A four-year letter-winner in women’s lacrosse at Virginia Tech, Halfpenny started on the 1999 Hokie team that won the Atlantic 10 Conference championship, finished 11-6 and achieved a program-first top-20 ranking. She received the coaches award that year and was a two-time member of the athletic director’s

honor roll (1998, 1999). She graduated in 1999 with a degree in health and physical education. Born in Latham, N.Y., Halfpenny and her husband Matt are parents of two sons Jackson and Cole.

Assistant Coaches JILL BYERS First Season Notre Dame ‘09 Former Notre Dame All-American and U.S. Women’s National Lacrosse Team member Jill Byers is entering her first season as an assistant coach after returning home to the Golden Dome when head coach Christine Halfpenny brought her on board on June 29, 2012. “I am thrilled to welcome Jill back home to Notre Dame,” said Halfpenny. “She has established herself as one of the best young assistants in the country through her work ethic and ability to break down skill sets of the game, along with her positive attitude. Jill’s passion for the sport of lacrosse and the University of Notre Dame are a unique combination that will be a major asset to our program as we compete for a conference and national title. “Bringing an alum back to the sidelines is an incredible advantage for our staff and the student-athletes that she will mentor,” Halfpenny continued. “We look forward to getting started with Jill and allowing her to put her fingerprint back on the Notre Dame women’s lacrosse program.” Byers, who spent the last three seasons as an assistant at Yale, replaces Sarah Dalton, who left Notre Dame after one season to pursue other career opportunities. “It’s a privilege to come back to a place I called home for four years,” said Byers. “I love Notre Dame and all that it represents as a world-class institution. The passion for excellence in the classroom and on the field is inspiring. As an Irish student-athlete, I had an experience that was second to none, and I am excited to work with the young women in this program to provide the same phenomenal experience. I am truly honored by this appointment and will do my best to contribute to the success of this program.” The Northport, N.Y., native comes to the Irish from the Bulldogs, where she helped in all of the day-to-day aspects of running the Ivy League program. Under Byers’ tutelage, Yale scored 137 goals on the year in 2012, a

36

65 percent increase from 2011 and the most goals scored since 2008. In addition to her on-the-field responsibilities, Byers served as the recruiting coordinator and also dealt with equipment, meals, lodging and travel throughout the year when the Bulldogs went on the road. In addition to her job with the Bulldogs, Byers is a four-year member of the U.S. Women’s National Lacrosse Team. With Team USA, she competes with and plays against the best players in the world, participating in the Stars & Stripes Tournament and the Champions Challenge among others. Arguably the best player ever to wear the Irish blue and gold, Byers still remains the Notre Dame career leader in all-time goals (262) and points (336). She also is second in draw controls (154), tied for second in games played (76), fifth in assists (74) and 10th in caused turnovers (61). In looking at the NCAA Division I record books entering the 2012 season, Byers was fifth in goals (262), 10th in points (336), 15th in goals per game (3.45) and 19th in points per game (4.42) for a career. Over her four years with Notre Dame, the Irish went 54-22. She also helped the pro-

gram reach its lone Final Four in 2006 as a freshman and helped it secure its only BIG EAST Tournament title in 2009 as a senior. Byers’ senior season was one for the record books as she found the back of the net 83 times, which sits 12th in NCAA history. For her efforts, Byers was runner-up for the Tewaaraton Trophy, given to the nation’s best player, and the Honda Award Trophy. She also was selected as the BIG EAST Co-Attack Player of the Year and was named the Notre Dame Monogram Club Most Valuable Player. A four-time first-team IWLCA West/ Midwest all-region and all-BIG EAST honoree, Byers was named second team IWLCA All-American three times and was a first team IWLCA All-American as a senior in 2009. Following graduation, Byers played in the North/South Senior All-Star Game. A two-time BIG EAST Academic All-Star, she graduated from Notre Dame in May of 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts in film, television and theatre. Active in the community, Byers has been a coordinator for the Friends of Jaclyn Foundation and the Smilow Cancer Hospital since January of 2010.


JAKE MARMUL First Season Notre Dame ‘11 Former Notre Dame men’s lacrosse player and 2011 graduate Jake Marmul returned home to Notre Dame as the newest women’s lacrosse assistant coach, head coach Christine Halfpenny announced on Sept. 28, 2012. “I am very pleased to announce the addition of Jake Marmul to our staff,” said Halfpenny. “We had a strong pool of candidates, but feel fortunate to bring Jake back to the Irish sidelines. What struck me about Jake was his passion for the game of lacrosse, Notre Dame and his eagerness to make a difference with our women’s program. “I look for assistants that can bring a unique perspective to our staff meetings, team systems and player development. No

doubt the women’s game has changed and now incorporates strategy that has been standard in the men’s game. For example man-up/man-down and subbing multiple players through the box come to mind. I believe Jake has the ability to make a positive impact with his background and I couldn’t be more excited for him to join us.” Marmul, who replaces Nick Williams, graduated from Notre Dame in May of 2011 with a Bachelor of Arts in both psychology and sociology. The Livonia, Mich., native finished with a 3.447 grade point average in psychology and a perfect 4.0 GPA in sociology. “I am honored to return to Notre Dame as an assistant coach of the women’s lacrosse team,” said Marmul. “I experienced firsthand the joys of being a student-athlete at the university, and I look forward to working with Chris (Halfpenny) and Jill (Byers) to ensure the young women who come through our program will have the same great experience. I am excited to bring a different perspective on the game to the coaching staff, and can’t wait to get started!” A four-year member of the Irish men’s lacrosse team, Marmul earned two mono-

grams for the squad. A talented faceoff specialist, Marmul won 166 of 295 career faceoff attempts for an impressive .563 winning percentage. After missing the entire 2010 season with a knee injury, he returned to the field in 2011, ranking 17th nationally in faceoffs with .557 winning percentage. He was part of a senior class that graduated with a 52-14 record and four trips to the NCAA Tournament, including the program’s first national championship appearance and two GWLL championships. Busy off the field, Marmul participated in a wealth of activities. He was a part of the planning committee for the University of Notre Dame Senior Retreat, worked with the Playing for Peace rally and fundraiser and helped promote National Eating Disorder Awareness (NEDA) through a class. He also worked the Notre Dame Lacrosse Camp for three summers and was an assistant lacrosse coach at Saint Joseph’s High School in South Bend during the spring of 2010. Marmul comes to the Irish from Quicken Loans in Detroit, where he has worked as a public relations associate since October 2011. During his time at Quicken Loans, the nation’s largest online lender, he worked on a number of projects, including producing a weekly radio show. Away from his full-time job, Marmul was an assistant lacrosse coach at Catholic Central High School in Novi, Mich., during the 2012 season, ran a three-day Faceoff Camp at the University of Detroit Mercy this past summer and was active in a number of volunteer opportunities in Detroit.

Fighting Irish

Season In Review

Notre Dame graduate Maggie Tamasitis concluded one of the finer careers in Irish women’s lacrosse history in 2012. The Boyertown, Pa., native was a two-time IWLCA All-American (second and third team), two-time first team IWLCA West/Midwest all-region selection and two-time first team all-BIG EAST honoree.


Season In Review The 2012 Notre Dame women’s lacrosse season began as a year of change under first-year head coach Christine Halfpenny, but turned into business as usual for the Irish as they earned spots in both the BIG EAST and NCAA Tournaments on their way to a 13-5 record. The 13 regular season wins was tied for first in school history, while the 13 wins overall was tied for third in school history. Notre Dame knocked off five ranked teams during the year as they raced out to an 8-0 start, which was the second-best start in school history and the best since 2008. Halfpenny became the first coach in BIG EAST history to start out 8-0 in their opening year at the helm of their program. The Irish won 10-plus games for the 10th time in school history, advanced to the BIG EAST Tournament for the sixth time in the six years the postseason championship has existed and qualified for the NCAA Championship for the seventh time since 2002. After beginning the year ranked No. 20 in the IWLCA poll, the Irish quickly soared up the rankings with ranked wins early in the season, climbing as high as No. 6 in the country before closing out the year at No. 9. Notre Dame earned wins over ranked foes Stanford (No. 6), Ohio State (No. 10), Cornell (No. 16), Vanderbilt (No. 18) and Georgetown (No. 12) throughout the course of the year. Several talented performers including IWLCA and Synapse Sports All-Americans Maggie Tamasitis and Margaret Smith led the Irish throughout the year. Tamasitis, a second team IWLCA and third team Synapse Sports selection, continued to rewrite the Notre Dame record books as she ended her career as the school’s all-time leader in assists in a

half, game, season, BIG EAST play only and career and is the BIG EAST’s record holder for helpers in a game and for conference games only. Smith meanwhile showed her versatility as she tallied 47 draw controls, 37 ground balls and 31 caused turnovers and also chipped in 12 goals during her third-team All-America season. Also turning in a big season was freshman Barbara Sullivan, who was named to the Synapse Sports AllRookie team after collecting 40 ground balls and 32 draw controls and causing 32 turnovers. Tamasitis, Smith and Sullivan all earned first team IWLCA West/ Midwest All-Region honors, while Megan Sullivan and Lindsey Powell earned second team all-region accolades. Sullivan proved to be a stabilizer and team leader in the midfield as she scored 24 goals on offense and scooped up 23 ground balls and 27 draw controls and caused 15 turnovers on defense. Powell returned from missing the 2011 season with a knee injury to lead the Irish in goals with 44 before missing the last two games of the season with another knee injury. The group of five also earned a spot on the all-BIG EAST team as Tamasitis and Smith earned first team honors, while Powell and both Sullivans earned second team accolades. Notre Dame also received key contributions from veterans and rookies alike. Junior Jaimie Morrison scored 34 goals to finish second on the team in goals and third in points (42). Fellow junior Jenny Granger added 20 goals and 12 assists to finish third on the team in points (32), while sophomore Kaitlyn Brosco was the sixth player to score 20-plus goals with 22. Sophomore Lauren Sullivan (13), junior Betsy Mastropieri (11) and

On defense senior Jordy Shoemaker showed a knack for defending the opponent’s best attacker, something that often didn’t show up in the stats column. Shoemaker tallied 15 ground balls and caused 11 turnovers. Helping on the other side was junior Emily Conner, who posted 14 ground balls and 14 caused turnovers. In goal the Irish were led by three-year starter Ellie Hilling, who made 145 saves in 980:36 minutes of action. Hilling finished in the top five in the BIG EAST in saves per game (1st, 8.53), save percentage (4th, .449) and goals against average (5th,

10.89). Backing her up was freshman Allie Murray, who appeared in five games and won the Villanova match at home (18-5) after Hilling missed the entire contest with an illness. The Irish lost eight student-athletes to graduation at the end of the 2012 season, but return 22 players and welcome in 10 freshmen to a team that should compete for BIG EAST and NCAA supremacy in 2013.

NCAA Tournament History Notre Dame Women’s Lacrosse in the NCAA Championship The Notre Dame Fighting Irish women’s lacrosse team has advanced to the NCAA tournament seven times since the 2002 campaign, highlighted by the 2006 appearance in the the national semifinals in Boston, Mass. In just 16 seasons as a Division I program, Notre Dame women’s lacrosse has become a major player on the national lacrosse scene. The Irish first appeared in the tournament following the 2002 season and hosted their first-ever tournament game versus Ohio State, taking an 11-7 win over the Buckeyes. That win moved Notre Dame into the quarterfinals on the road at Princeton. The Tigers ended the Irish season with an 11-5 loss at the hands of the eventual national champions. After just missing the tournament in 2003, Notre Dame was back again in 2004 and would travel to Midwest-rival Northwestern in the first round. The Wildcats handed the Irish a 10-8 loss in their second tourney appearance. In 2006, the Irish returned to the NCAA Tournament, recording the biggest turnaround in NCAA history, going from 3-12 in ‘05 to 15-4, a +10 change. That helped the Irish get their second-ever home NCAA game as they played host to Cornell. Notre Dame responded with a 16-8 win to advance to the quarterfinals for the second time in program history. That game would also be at Moose Krause Stadium against fourth-ranked Georgetown, a team the Irish had never beaten. That seven-game losing streak came to an end as the Irish handed the Hoyas a 12-9 loss to move on to the NCAA finals, held at Boston University. In the semifinals, the Irish faced Dartmouth and saw the most successful season in the program’s history come to an end as the Big Green downed Notre Dame, 14-8, to move on to the finals against Northwestern. For the first time in the program’s history, the Irish advanced to the NCAAs in three consecutive seasons, doing so from 2008-10. in 2010, they traveled to Evanston, Ill., where they dropped a 19-7 decision to Northwestern. That followed a trip to the quarterfinals in 2009 and a first round loss to Northwestern in 2008. Following a year’s absence, the Irish returned to the NCAAs in 2012, losing to eventual national champion Northwestern, 12-7 in Evanston.

Crysti Foote scored two goals and added an assist in the loss.


Northwestern’s Kristen Kjellman matched Delano with three goals and an assist while Laura Glassanos had three goals of her own to pace the Wildcats.

After a year away, Notre Dame women’s lacrosse returned to the NCAA Tournament, opening at Moose Krause Stadium, versus Cornell. The Irish scored early and often in dispatching the Big Red by a 16-8 score. Senior Crysti Foote and freshman Jillian Byers led Notre Dame with four goals and a pair of assists each, improving the Irish to 14-3 on the year. The win advanced Notre Dame to the quarterfinals versus No. 4 Georgetown. Caitlin McKinney added three goals while Heather Ferguson and Kaki Orr scored twice and Brittany Fox scored a solo goal in the win. Carol Dixon paced the Irish defense as she made 12 saves in the game. Noelle Dowd led Cornell (12-4) with four goals on the afternoon.

The lead would reach 11-5 early in the second half before Cornell got a pair of goals at 18:07 and 16:56 to cut the Irish lead to 11-7.

2006 NCAA Tournament – Quarterfinals #7 Notre Dame 12, #4 Georgetown 9 May 20, 2006 • Notre Dame, Ind. For six years, the Georgetown Hoyas stood in the way of the Notre Dame women’s lacrosse team in its attempt to win a BIG EAST Conference title. Three times, including the 2006 season, the Irish finished second to the Hoyas in the league with their lone conference loss coming at Georgetown. Now, only the Hoyas stood in the way of Notre Dame in its bid to advance to the NCAA Finals in Boston, Mass. Things would be different this time around thanks to the trio of Crysti Foote, Jillian Byers and Caitlin McKinney who combined for nine goals and six assists to lead the Irish to their first win in eight tries against the Hoyas, a 12-9 NCAA quarterfinal victory, that sent the Irish on to the NCAA semifinals at Boston University. Mary Carpenter, Jane Stoeckert and Heather Ferguson also scored for Notre Dame in the upset victory. Georgetown got three goals each from Coco Stanwick and Schuyler Sutton while Lucy Poole, Paige Andrews and Courtney Hubschman each scored once for the Hoyas, who fell to 14-4 for the season. The Irish got off to a fast start, taking a 4-1 lead less than 14 minutes into the game as Byers scored Notre Dame’s first three goals on the way to a five-point game (3g, 2a). Georgetown roared back, scoring the next five goals to take a 6-4 lead and Foote’s goal for the Irish with 1:32 left in the first half cut the Hoyas’ lead to one at 6-5. Notre Dame came out fast in the second half and tied the game when Ferguson converted on a free-position goal at 28:35 to make it 6-6.

Alyssa Leonard dominated the draw control for the Wildcats, as she faced off against the Irish and collected eight, often times out of the air. Thornton led the way with five ground balls. Goalie Brianne LoManto picked up her 18th win, as she allowed seven goals while stopping five shots. Despite only collecting two draws in nine opportunities, the Irish trailed by only two goals at halftime, 5-3. Notre Dame was helped by a ferocious defense that forced Northwestern into 11 turnovers. When the Irish did have the ball they were hurt by nine turnovers, many after forcing a Northwestern turnover. However, the Irish were efficient around the goal, scoring their three goals on only seven shots, while the Wildcats took 13 shots to score their five goals. The 5-3 margin put the Irish squarely in the game after trailing 12-3 just three weeks ago against the Wildcats at the half. In the second half the two squads traded goals until the Wildcats went on a 3-0 run from 17:52 to 11:39 to go up 10-5. The Irish cut the lead to 10-7 with 5:18 left after goals from Brosco and Mastropieri, but could get no closer. The contest marked the final game in an Irish uniform for eight Notre Dame student-athletes. Seeing their final action were Tamasitis, Megan Sullivan, Kate Newall, Jordy Shoemaker, Flannery Nangle, Brittany Mallory, Kristin DeRespiris and Kelly Driscoll.

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 studentathletes 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 second-straight 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 200-yard 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 2009-2012, 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.

NCAA Graduation Numbers The University of Notre Dame can once again claim 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 student-athletes 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 student-athletes once again rank either number one or among the handful of national leaders in five major categories among all major football-playing colleges and universities. Notre Dame’s institutional research found that Irish studentathletes in 2012 rank 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 released today. For the fourth year in a row Notre Dame leads the nation in four GSR categories--for all student-athletes (at 99), male studentathletes (98), female student-athletes (100) and football studentathletes (97). Notre Dame also ranks number one in the federal numbers for male student-athletes (89). In calculations that include all student-athletes in all sports, Notre Dame ranks 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 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 number-one 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 deve-loped by the NCAA and released today. 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.

APR Numbers 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 Wednesday 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 features a four-year compilation of APR data from the 2007-08, 2008-09, 200910 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 follows the announcement last week 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 last week 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.
