Women’s lacrosse begins its 13th season as the 20th sport sponsored by the BIG EAST Conference. 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 sixth time this spring with Syracuse 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 is the new home of the Notre Dame men’s and women’s lacrosse teams and what a home it is as it ranks among the top lacrosse facilities in the nation. 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 artificialturf 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 along with indoors at the Loftus Sports Center.

Loftus Center

The Isban Auditorium within the new Guglielmino Athletics Complex provides an ideal setting for team meetings. The auditorium can seat up to 150 people in large chairback seats.

The Haggar Fitness Center, which is shared by both the Loftus Center and the Guglielmino Athletics Complex, features 25,000 square feet of strength and conditioning space with state-of-the art weight equipment, a 50-yard Mondo track for speed training, a 45-yard by 18-yard Prestige Turf athletic surface for team workouts and an updated sound and lighting system that features six plasma television screens.

The Loftus Sports Center will combine with the new Arlotta Stadium to give 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 71-36 (.676) home record from 1997-2011 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 2012 season, the Irish are 25-10 (.714) all-time in games played at the Loftus Center.

The Loftus Sports Center, one of the six indoor facilities in the country that plays host to Division I women’s lacrosse games, is the home of the Notre Dame Fighting Irish women’s games when inclement weather precludes them from being contested at Arlotta Stadium.

New Era Under Halfpenny Begins With High Expectations For Notre Dame Women’s Lacrosse With talent found throughout the field, the Irish take aim at BIG EAST and national goals. A new era begins on Feb. 19 against Stanford as the Notre Dame women’s lacrosse team opens a campaign for the first time not under the direction of long-time head coach and program starter Tracy Coyne. Enter Christine Halfpenny, the former William & Mary head coach, who is charged with taking over a program that has won one BIG EAST Tournament title and advanced to six NCAA Tournaments, including the 2006 Final Four, since the program was founded in 1997. Halfpenny, who had four 10-win seasons with the Tribe, kept assistant Nick Williams and brought Tribe assistant Sarah Dalton along with her to help coach the team. “The offseason was used as a time to build on the foundation that has been set here the last 15 years, but at the same time rebuild some culture,” said Halfpenny. “We have been working on defining our team personality, which will help with team chemistry, and we have had a chance to put our systems and schemes in place.” The system Halfpenny mentions is her motion offense and attacking defense she brings to the Irish from William & Mary. The object on offense is for multiple players to see touches during a play, thus allowing an opportunity for all seven on the attack to have a chance to score on any given offensive possession. “We want the opponent to have to be ready for us at all seven points,” said Halfpenny. “We want opponents to expect that any of the seven offensive weapons could take a shot at any moment.” On defense Halfpenny likes to incorporate an attacking style that brings a lot of pressure to the opponent’s offense and looks to create a lot of turnovers. “We incorporate a high-pressure defense,” said Halfpenny.“We emphasize speed and conditioning so we can implement our team strategies effectively.” Another area that Halfpenny places great emphasis on is the draw. “If you can get the draw you are giving yourself more opportunities to be successful,” said Halfpenny. “We worked during the fall and winter on identifying individuals with great reaction ability that could be drawers or in the circle.” The Irish lost a lot from last year’s 10-9 squad, namely three-time second-team All-American Shaylyn Blaney and two-time first-team AllAmerican Jackie Doherty. All told, six of last year’s seniors tallied 147 of the team’s 345 points. However, not all of the team’s talent graduated, leaving life for a quick rebuilding process as a new era begins under the Golden Dome.

Leading the charge is senior attacker Maggie Tamasitis, who is a preseason third-team AllAmerican and first team all-BIG EAST performer while also representing Notre Dame on the Tewaaraton Watch List. Last year the Boyertown, Pa., native had a breakout year, tallying 21 goals and 46 assists for 67 points, on her way to third team All-America honors and first team all-BIG EAST and all-region accolades. “Maggie is a crucial playmaker for us,” said Halfpenny. “She brings so much to the table in the way of distributing skills and her athleticism. We expect her to have a monster senior season.” The midfield is stocked full of talent for the upcoming season. Anchoring the middle is senior Megan Sullivan, who had 33 ground balls, 20 draw controls and 16 caused turnovers as a junior. Joining her will be junior Jenny Granger, who hurt defenders with her offensive prowess (26 G, 12 A, 38 P) and her speed and stick work (12 ground balls, 18 draw controls), sophomore Margaret Smith, who tallied 32 ground balls, 21 draw controls and 15 caused turnovers and sophomore Kaitlyn Brosco, who earned second team allregion and all-BIG EAST honors after scoring 32 goals, scooping up 14 ground balls and gathering in 14 draw controls. “Meg is a wonderful leader for us,” said Halfpenny. “She has a strong desire to be the best. She is very fast and has great communication skills on defense. Kaitlyn has a great will to win and is a hard worker. Her communications skills are outstanding. She will help to get the motion offense started. She’ll see a lot of success if she keeps doing the things she is doing.” Other key returnees for the Irish are midfielders Jordy Shoemaker and Kate Newell and attackers Jaimie Morrison and Betsy Mastropieri. “Jordy is kind of the glue that keeps our defense together,” said Halfpenny. “We are expecting big things out of her this year. Betsy is a shifty attacker who can shake any defender. She has the ability to transition the ball up the field quickly and attack the defenders.” Expected to play a role in the rotation at defender is junior Emily Conner, while sophomores Molly Shawhan and Lindsay Powell are both expected to make big contributions to the midfield and attacker positions. Halfpenny highlighted Conner’s smarts on defense, and her ability to capitalize on opponent’s mistakes. “Molly is great at picking up 50/50 balls, and made her presence known against Duke and North Carolina by getting up and down the field. Lindsay is an athletic player, who worked extremely hard to return from a knee injury last season. She is an outstanding one-on-one attacker and has great shooting skills.”

Senior co-captain Megan Sullivan returns after a strong junior campaign that saw her grab 33 ground balls and 20 draw controls and cause 16 turnovers. She will help anchor the defense and midfield that lost senior standouts Kailene Abt, Shaylyn Blaney, Jackie Doherty, Kaitlin Keena and Lauren Fenlon.

A talented freshman class will help ease the loss of the talented 2011 group, as several look to earn playing time immediately. Highlighting the group is defender Barbara Sullivan, who along with fellow Irish freshman Allie Murray, earned a spot on the U-19 USA team that won the gold medal at the Women’s Lacrosse World Championships in Hanover, Germany, this past August. Others that could help out the team in year one are Caitlin Gargan, Leah Gallagher and Elizabeth Driscoll. The sixth freshman, Shauna Pugliese, was expected to see significant time in the spring, but suffered a knee injury in the team’s exhibition game against Johns Hopkins that will sideline her for the season. Back minding the net for the third consecutive year is junior Ellie Hilling, who saw over 1,110 minutes in the cage last year, while stopping 131 shots for a 9.67 goals against average. “Ellie brings incredible experience to the team,” said Halfpenny. “She has ninja-like hands and has a great ability to spark a break.” Captaining this year’s squad are three senior veterans in Tamasitis, Sullivan and Shoemaker. The Irish chose to play an incredibly hard schedule in Halfpenny’s first fall, as they battled three of the four Final Four teams from a year ago. The team experienced some growing pains in the fall season opener against defending National Champion Northwestern, but Halfpenny thinks the team learned from that match. “Our performance was far from acceptable and the team knows that,” said Halfpenny. “We came out against them and there was a lack of motivation and a lack of inspired lacrosse and they made us pay. The positives came when the juniors and seniors learned that they are the on-field

leaders now. It lit a fire in the team and they played much better against North Carolina and Duke.” The team closed out the fall season against Navy and Delaware and continued showing improvement. “The team is progressing at a nice rate,” said Halfpenny after the fall. “We are starting to define ourselves. Everyone knows the expectations now and the coaches are getting to know the players now that the newness has worn off a bit. We have team goals that include winning the first BIG EAST regular season title in school history, but we have a lot of work to put in to make goals like that a reality.” The 2012 spring schedule offers up several challenges if the team hopes to make a return to the NCAA Tournament after not being one of the 16 teams involved a year ago. Foes ranked in the preseason Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) poll dot the schedule for the No. 20 Irish, including the season opener against No. 6 Stanford at home. Other opponents that are ranked include No. 7 Loyola (Md.) (4/01), No. 12 Syracuse (4/05), No. 15 Georgetown (4/21), No. 18 Ohio State (3/04) and No. 19 Vanderbilt (4/18).

“We are just so excited for the season to get underway,” expressed Halfpenny. “We think we have a team that can surprise some people this year, but we won’t know until we get into the schedule and start playing some of these elite teams.” With a mix of returning and freshman talent and the flavor of a new coaching staff, the Irish are putting together a recipe for a fun and exciting 2012 season. A (HALF)PENNY FOR YOUR THOUGHTS •The 2012 season marks a new era in Notre Dame women’s lacrosse, as Christine Halfpenny takes the reigns as just the second head coach in program history since the team earned varsity status back in 1997. The former standout for the Virginia Tech Hokies lacrosse team comes to the Irish after a five-year stint as head coach at William & Mary where she compiled 43 victories, including reaching double-digit wins in each of her final four seasons. Additionally, her teams garnered the Colonial Athletic Association regular-season league title in both ’08 and ’09, while she copped CAA coach-of-the-year honors in ’08. •While team success has been noticed under Halfpenny’s watch, her players’ individual successes have also been abundant.

Season Preview stay with the Tribe, she saw two players tabbed IWLCA All-Americans, while helping 26 to allconference citations and 10 to all-region honors. Her 2011 campaign also saw history made, as William & Mary captured player of the year, defensive player of the year and rookie of the year, marking the first time in CAA history that one school claimed all three top honors in one season. ASSAULT ON THE RECORD BOOK •Leading the Irish attack is senior tri-captain, Maggie Tamasitis. With her stellar performance in her first three seasons on campus, Tamasitis is climbing the Irish record books in many statistical categories including goals (54), assists (92, 2nd), points (146, T-9th) and games played (58). TAMASITIS ON TEWAARATON RADAR •Senior attacker Maggie Tamasitis continues to garner recognition heading into her final campaign with the Irish. The Boyertown, Pa., native was named to the 2012 Tewaaraton Award Watch List, as announced Feb. 15. Tamasitis joins a group of 53 fellow women’s lacrosse players, including 48 from Division I schools and eight from other BIG EAST institutions. This list, along with additional names added throughout the season, will be trimmed down to 25 who have been chosen as Tewaaraton Trophy Nominees before a final five is selected as finalists come seasons end. Six Irish players have been named nominees over the programs history, with Jillian Byers representing the only two-time recipient. Here is listing of all the past Irish nominees:

Junior goalkeeper Ellie Hilling returns for her third season of minding the cage for the Irish. The Rochester, N.Y., native has started in each of her first two seasons, already ranking in the top five in Notre Dame history in wins (21), minutes played (2,224:47), saves (262) and goals-against average (9.68).

While in net, Hilling led the Irish to a 10-9 record, allowing 9.67 goals per game. •Hilling burst on to the scene in her freshman campaign (2010) where she led the team to an 11-7 record while stopping 131 shots in over 1,110 minutes of action including registering the only shutout of her career and the first in BIG EAST conference history against Villanova (4/9/2010). DON’T SLEEP ON THE IRISH •Despite coming off of a 10-9 season that saw the Irish fail to reach the NCAA Tournament and graduate several key senior contributors from the 2011 campaign, Insidelacrosse.com warns, “don’t sleep on the Irish.” According to the online story on ilwomen.com, the Irish have been declared the sleeper team in the BIG EAST Conference to claim the league title with the help of returning offensive weapons in senior Maggie Tamasitis (54g-92a-146 pts.) and sophomore Kaitlyn Brosco (32g-8a-40 pts.) as well as junior Ellie Hilling (2116, 9.68 GAA, 262 saves) manning the net for the third straight season. NOTRE DAME’S GOLDEN GIRLS •Joining the fold for the Irish this season are a pair of touted freshmen: goalkeeper Allie Murray (Exton, Pa.) and defender Barbara Sullivan (Garden City, N.Y.), who gained invaluable experience during the summer of 2011 as members of the U.S. U-19 squad at the Women’s Lacrosse World Championship. In addition to helping the U.S. win the crown for the fourth consecutive year, Sullivan anchored a stingy American defense that allowed a championshipbest 5.38 goals per game and Murray appeared in six of eight contests, recording one win along with 20 saves. TRI-CAPTAINS TO LEAD IRISH •The triumvirate of midfielders Jordy Shoemaker and Megan Sullivan and attacker Maggie Tamasitis have been selected as the Notre Dame women’s lacrosse captains for the 2012 campaign. The three captains have played in a combined 140 games, helped their team to 37 wins, scored 85 goals and have added 100 assists.

SISTER ACT •The Notre Dame women’s lacrosse program has a long history of sisters playing for the blue and gold. This season is no different as Notre Dame senior midfielder Megan Sullivan (Winchester, Mass.) and her younger sister, Lauren Sullivan, a sophomore on this year’s roster, are the ninth set of siblings to play for the Irish ‘Laxers’. The Sullivan’s join eight other sister duos to play at Notre Dame - Maggie ‘10 and Lena Zentgraf ‘07, twin sisters Heather and Lindsey Ferguson ‘08; Julie ‘08 and Crysti Foote ‘06; Lauren ‘09 and Meghan deMello ‘06; Kelly and Kristen Gaudreau ‘04; Carol ‘06 and Angela Dixon ‘03 and Annemarie ‘09 and Mary McGrath ‘06. The sisters who started the tradition are Amy ‘98 and Mara Grace ‘98. They played in 1997 and 1998, the first two years of the program. DOUBLE-DIGIT WINS •Notre Dame’s 10-win season in 2011 gives the Irish six consecutive seasons with double-digit wins for the first time in the program’s 16-year history. Over the last six seasons, the Irish are 75-38 (.664). SHOES TO FILL •While 2012 ushers in a new era in Notre Dame women’s lacrosse on the coaching staff, the Irish also see a changing-of-the-guard on the field with the graduation of a pair of IWLCA All-Americans: Shaylyn Blaney and Jackie Doherty. Blaney, a three-time, second-team selection, finished her career as the all-time Irish leader in games played (77), while finishing second in goals (162) and seventh in total points (188). Doherty, meanwhile, was a defensive stalwart for the Notre Dame back line, earning first-team, All-America billing in both ’10 and ’11 and finishing her career tied for second in groundballs (177) and leading the way in caused turnovers (117).

Junior Jenny Granger had a breakout year as a sophomore, turning in 26 goals and 12 assists for 38 points, while also tallying 12 ground balls and 18 draw controls. In a 16-15 win at Louisville, the East Setauket, N.Y., native scored with 0.8 seconds to give the Irish the thrilling last-second victory.

BIG EAST ANNOUNCES PRESEASON RANKINGS, AWARDS •Despite losing over 415 goals and 140 assists to graduation, the Irish were picked to finish fourth in the BIG EAST Preseason Coaches’ Poll due in large part to their two preseason All-BIG EAST team selections, midfielder Kaitlyn Brosco and attacker Maggie Tamasitis. •The Irish also are one of four BIG EAST teams ranked in one of the two national polls. Notre Dame is ranked 20th in the IWLCA poll along with conference foes Loyola (Md.) (7), Syracuse (12) and Georgetown (15). The Irish were left off the deBeer/Inside Lacrosse preseason poll, while Loyola (Md.) (7), Syracuse (12) and Georgetown (13) again represented the BIG EAST in the national rankings. RELAX AT HOME AND WATCH THE LAXERS •The Notre Dame women’s lacrosse team will have two games broadcast nationally on the CBS College Sports Network this upcoming season. The first televised game will take place at home on April 5 against Syracuse at Arlotta Stadium, while the second game takes place on April 21 as the Irish travel to the nation’s capital to take on Georgetown. •Check your local listings to find out if your local provider offers the CBS College Sports Network.

Sophomore Kaitlyn Brosco caught the BIG EAST by surprise last season, earning second team all-region honors and second team all-BIG EAST accolades. The second-leading goal scorer on the team, the Shoreham, N.Y., product scored 32 goals and dished out eight assists for 40 points.

Head Coach CHRISTINE HALFPENNY First Season Virginia Tech ‘99

Christine Halfpenny enters her first season as head coach of the Notre Dame women’s lacrosse program after five seasons in the same position at the College of William & 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). Halfpenny’s most recent season in 2011 included All-America selections Grace Golden (her second consecutive recognition) and Sarah Jonson (her third straight) and a fourth straight advancement to the CAA tournament. Her Tribe staff in 2011 included former Irish women’s lacrosse All-American Shannon Burke. William and Mary in ‘11 led the league in goals, points, ground balls, draw controls, caused turnovers (all per game) and shooting percentage - and both the 2010 and ‘11 teams ranked in the top 20 nationally most of those two campaigns.

Her 2009 season featured a second consecutive regular-season conference crown, finished off with five straight league wins (three against ranked opponents) to end the regular season. Halfpenny saw her 2008 Tribe team finish the season ranked 20th after wins in eight of its last 11 contests (with four wins coming against rated opponents, including top-10 foes Stanford and George Mason). Her first season in 2007 featured a victory over ninth-ranked James Madison. 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 regularseason crowns and made three straight NCAA Championships appearances, advancing to the national semifinals in both 2005 and 2006. Halfpenny worked

Assistant Coaches NICK WILLIAMS Assistant Coach Second Season Towson ‘08

Nick Williams enters his second season with the Notre Dame women’s lacrosse program in 2012 after serving as an assistant at his alma mater, Towson University, for the 2010 campaign. With the Irish, Williams oversees the defense and works with the team’s goalkeepers, while also assisting with recruiting, scouting opponents and camps and clinics. In his first season with the Irish in 2011, Williams helped tutor a Notre Dame defense that finished near the top of the BIG EAST in several goalie and defensive categories, including caused turnovers per game (3rd, 9.47), goals against average (3rd, 9.58) and save percentage (4th, .427). Williams also helped coach senior defender Jackie Doherty, who earned first team All-America honors from the Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA, first team IWLCA West/ Midwest all-region accolades, first team allBIG EAST honors and a spot on the BIG EAST All-Tournament team, and senior defender Lauren Fenlon, who was named to the IWLCA West/Midwest all-region second team.

Doherty finished first in the BIG EAST in caused turnovers per game (2.42) and second in ground balls per game (2.89), while goalie Ellie Hilling was fifth in the league in saves per game (7.00), including third during conference games only (7.12). “I am excited to retain Nick as our defensive coordinator here at ND,” said head coach Christine Halfpenny. “Both Nick and I share a vision for a strong attacking defensive unit that is dynamic and tough. Having played the men’s game, he has knowledge that will help our systems and schemes as the women’s game continues to evolve. His positive energy and high lacrosse IQ will certainly help our program as we strive to win championships.” During his lone season at Towson, Williams helped the Tigers’ women’s team to a 13-3 overall record, a first-ever at-large selection to the NCAA Tournament and a final ranking of seventh in the nation, the highest ranking in the school’s history. At Towson, Williams served as the goalie coach with Tiger goalkeeper, Mary Teeters, earning second team all-conference honors. Assisting with both the offense and defense, he helped coach the 2010 Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Player of the Year, three first team all-CAA picks, two second team choices and two all-rookie selections.

A two-sport athlete at Towson University, Williams graduated in 2008 with a Bachelor’s Degree in sports management. A four-year member of the Tigers’ men’s lacrosse team, Williams played 61 career games and helped Towson to a pair of CAA championships. He scored 29 goals with 22 assists in his career, including a career-best, four-goal game against Cornell in the 2005 NCAA Tournament. The Baltimore, Md., native also was a football standout at Towson and is the fifthleading rusher in school history with 1,985 yards during his career. As a sophomore, Williams rushed for 911 yards in 11 games, including a career-high 169 yards in a win over Delaware. He was a third team allAtlantic 10 selection at running back following his sophomore year. Williams also picked up coaching experience in both sports as he served as an assistant coach of the women’s lacrosse team at Pomona College in Claremont, Calif., during the spring of 2009 where he worked with the offensive attack and served as the school’s recruiting coordinator. He followed that with a season as the running backs coach at his high school alma mater - Calvert Hall College High School in Baltimore - during the fall of 2009.

SARAH DALTON First Season Boston University ‘09

Sarah Dalton enters her first year as an assistant coach with the Notre Dame women’s lacrosse program after serving as an assistant coach and offensive coordinator at William & Mary for two years under first-year Notre Dame head coach Christine Halfpenny. Dalton will have primary responsibility over the attackers. “I’m really excited to join the Notre Dame family,” said Dalton. “The University has such a tremendous reputation for academics, tradition and athletics across the board. I look forward to the future of the Irish women’s lacrosse program.” Over her two-year stint at William & Mary, Dalton helped guide the Tribe to two of the most productive seasons offensively in the program’s history, as the team’s points and goal totals ranked among the school’s single-season top-10 lists in each of the two campaigns under her direction.

With a better understanding of the offensive structure, 2011 was a banner year for the Tribe in terms of offensive efficiency as they scored 12.53 goals per game (213 goals/17 games), bettering the previous season’s total. With the help of a drop in turnovers by 12%, the team’s shot percentage (goals/shot attempts) was the highest conversion rate (.465) for the program since the turn of the century. Individually, a number of Tribe players also benefited from Dalton’s tutelage, as six Tribe attackers earned all-conference honors over the past two seasons. Last spring, Taelor Salmon was honored as the Colonial Athletic Association Rookie of the Year, while Ashley Holofcener garnered second-team all-league honors. In 2010, Mary Zulty earned all-region and all-conference accolades, while Kyrstin Mackrides was selected to the CAA All-Rookie Team. In her first season assisting with W&M’s midfielders last spring, Dalton helped a number of Tribe standouts achieve tremendous success. Grace Golden was honored as the CAA Player of the Year and was one of three W&M midfielders who garnered all-conference distinction. One of the most productive players in the program’s history, Golden was also selected as an All-American by three organizations following her senior season. “I am thrilled to have Sarah assist me here at Notre Dame,” stated Halfpenny. “She is hands down the best fit for our program. She is a rising star as one of the top assistant coaches in the country and has proven ability to take this next step in her career. During the past two seasons at William & Mary, she was a tremendous role model to the studentathletes, she makes the game fun, understands the art of the balanced lifestyle and helps to transition players to the college game and college life. She has a creative mind and exudes her passion for the game through her individual and collective teaching style. I am excited to see her make an immediate impact as she helps players continue to develop their games at this high level.” A four-year starter at Boston University from 2006-09, Dalton finished her collegiate career as the most decorated player in the program’s history. Selected to the U.S. Developmental Team for two consecutive years (2008-09), Dalton was a three-time Intercollegiate Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association (IWLCA) All-American, earning first-team honors each of her last two seasons. Additionally, she garnered first-team

all-region distinction during her final three seasons and was chosen as the America East Conference Player of the Year twice. Along the way, she helped lead the Terriers to four America East Conference championships and trips to the NCAA Tournament all four years. Dalton finished her outstanding collegiate career with a school record 247 goals, 284 points and 191 draw controls. As a senior, she led the nation with 91 goals - fifth most in NCAA history - shattering her own previous BU single-season record of 71 goals. In addition to being recognized by the IWLCA, the BU team captain also garnered All-America honors from WomensLax.com and WomensLacrosse.com. Dalton’s long list of accolades also includes being named to the America East All-Conference Team three times, as well as to the All-Rookie team as a freshman. A twotime AEC All-Tournament Team selection, she was tabbed as the event’s Most Outstanding Player as a senior after establishing league records with six goals in the championship game and 11 in the tournament. Dalton also earned the BU Terrier Pride Award in 2009 and was chosen as the Vermont Female Athlete of the Year. The Cornwall, Vt., native graduated with a B.A. in psychology in 2009.

The Ellicott City, Md., native was a two-time first team IWLCA All-American, two-time first team all-region and two-time first team all-BIG EAST. Doherty also left the Irish program as the all-time leader in draw controls (165) and caused turnovers (117) and is tied for second in ground balls (177). 35-52SeasonInReview.indd 35

Season In Review Inconsistency proved to be the defining word used to describe the 2011 Notre Dame women’s lacrosse season. Despite finishing 6-2 in the BIG EAST, hitting the double-digit win mark (10-9) for the ninth time in school history and advancing to the BIG EAST title game for only the second time in school history, the Irish failed to put together a twogame winning streak until the end of April, struggling especially against ranked opponents, going 1-5 on the year. In the nine losses, the Irish fell by three or less goals in seven of those games, including three games that were by a single goal. The Irish sat 6-8 through their first 14 games. However that all changed on April 23 with an impressive 13-10 win over BIG EAST foe and 16th-ranked Georgetown on Senior Day. The win over the Hoyas sparked a fourgame winning streak that propelled the Irish to their second BIG EAST Championship game appearance, where they suffered a 12-10 setback to Loyola (Md.) to end the season. Notre Dame played in a remarkable four one-goal games and 11 that were three goals or less. After the Irish began the season 3-6 in non-conference games, Notre Dame’s fortunes changed significantly in BIG EAST play, as the team went 6-2 with decisive victories over Rutgers (11-6), Villanova (154), Connecticut (15-5) and Cincinnati (17-6), and highlight wins over the previously mentioned Hoyas and Louisville. In the match at the Cardinals, no team had more than a three-goal lead, and no more than a twogoal lead in the second half. After Louisville tied the match at 15 with 4:32 remaining in the game, the Irish had one more chance to earn the victory with only seconds remaining. Junior Maggie Tamasitis tossed a pass into sophomore Jenny Granger, who found the back of the net with only 0.8 seconds remaining in the game to give the Irish a 16-15 victory. Leading the way for the Irish in many of their contests was a strong senior class that rolled in the accolades. Five of the seven seniors earned on-field awards of some kind with midfielder Shaylyn Blaney and defender Jackie Doherty leading the way. Doherty became the first Notre Dame women’s lacrosse player to be named a first team IWLCA All-American twice in her career. A first-team all-BIG EAST selection for the second consecutive year, Doherty set Notre Dame’s single-season and career records for

caused turnovers. Her 46 caused turnovers in 2011 were the most in one season and her 117 were the most for any player during their career. Doherty led the BIG EAST in caused turnovers (2.42 per game) and ground balls (2.89 per game) while placing third and 15th nationally in each respective category. She was named an assistant coach at Marquette University following the 2011 season. Blaney capped her brilliant career by being selected as a second team IWLCA AllAmerican for the third consecutive season. She was a four-time, first-team IWLCA West/ Midwest all-region selection and joins former Irish teammate Jillian Byers ’09 as the only Irish players to be named all-region in all four seasons. A first-team, all-BIG EAST selection for the third consecutive year, she led Notre Dame in goals (35) and was second in points with 46. She led the Irish in draw controls (39) and was second in ground balls (44) and caused turnovers (44) with both totals being career highs. In addition to the dynamic duo, midfielder Kailene Abt was named second team all-BIG EAST, defender Lauren Fenlon earned IWLCA West/Midwest all-region second team accolades and midfielder Kaitlin Keena was selected to the all-BIG EAST Tournament team. In addition to senior leadership, 2011 proved to be the breakout year for junior attacker Maggie Tamasitis. The Boyertown, Pa, product led Notre Dame in scoring with 21 goals and 46 assists for 67 points, all career highs. Her 46 assists were a Notre Dame single-season record and she will go into her senior season with a 37-game point streak, the second longest in school history. During her streak that has covered the last two seasons, Tamasitis has 39 goals and 72 assists for 111 points. She tied a Notre Dame singleseason game record on April 16 when she had six assists in a game versus Connecticut. Tamasitis was named first team all-BIG EAST and was a third team IWLCA All-American for 2011. Other standouts for the Irish included a pair of rookies in Kaitlyn Brosco and Margaret Smith. Brosco, who ended the year second on the team in goals (32) and third in points (40), was named to the IWLCA West/Midwest allregion second team and the all-BIG EAST second team. For her efforts against Vanderbilt and Georgetown, where she

netted four goals in each game, Brosco was named WomensLax.com Rookie of the Week and earned a place on the BIG EAST Honor Roll. Smith proved to be a strong, quick midfielder as she collected 32 groundballs and 21 draw controls while forcing 15 turnovers. She earned a place on the BIG EAST Honor Roll after collecting 10 ground balls,

three draw controls and causing five turnovers in games against Villanova and Syracuse. Manning the goal for the second year in a row was sophomore Ellie Hilling, who started all 19 games for the Irish. She allowed 9.67 goals a game and made 131 saves, good for a .423 save percentage.

Despite not advancing to the NCAA Tournament, the Irish helped build a solid foundation for the future. The late season success of the team should help spark the team in training throughout the offseason and key members of the 2011 team return for the 2012 team, which begins the year ranked 20th in the IWLCA Division I national poll.

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 six times since the 2002 campaign, highlighted by the 2006 appearance in the the national semifinals in Boston, Mass. In just 15 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. The 2012 NCAA Tournament will begin on Sat.Sun., May 12-13 with eight games at campus sites. The quarterfinal games will be played at campus sites on Sat.-Sun., May 19-20 with the semifinals and finals at Kenneth P. LaValle Stadium in Stony Brook, N.Y. Stony Brook University will serve as the host with the semifinal games on Friday, May 25 and the national championship game set for Sunday, May 27, 2012.

Notre Dame made its second appearance in the NCAA Tournament in 2004 and the Irish faced one of their biggest rivals, the Northwestern Wildcats. The two teams met at Lakeside Field where the Wildcats rallied from a 6-4 halftime deficit to pull out a 10-8 win to advance to the NCAA Quarterfinals. The Irish were led offensively by senior midfielder Kassen Delano who equaled a career-best four-point game on three goals and an assist. 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. The Irish led 3-1 on goals by Kristen Gaudreau, Lauren Fischer and Foote only to see the Wildcats score three goals in a 1:04 span to make it 4-3. Delano scored the final three goals of the half to send the game to the intermission with Notre Dame leading 6-4. Two goals by Northwestern’s Aly Josephs early in the second half tied the game at 6-6. Abby Owen scored her only goal of the game with just over 21 minutes left to put Notre Dame ahead for the final time at 7-6. Kjellman then sandwiched a pair of goals around Albrecht’s second goal of the game to make it 9-7 with 8:15 left. Foote scored her second of the day with 6:25 left on the clock to narrow the Northwestern lead to 9-8. Glassanos closed out the scoring with 1:25 left for the 10-8 win.

Former Notre Dame head coach Tracy Coyne recorded her 200th career win when Notre Dame downed Cornell, 16-8, in the first round of the 2006 NCAA Tournament.

The Irish out shot Northwestern by a 19-18 margin. Carol Dixon had seven saves while Ashley Gersuk finished with six in the game. #9 Notre Dame #8 Northwestern

2006 NCAA Tournament – First Round #7 Notre Dame 16, #10 Cornell 8 May 14, 2006 • Notre Dame, Ind.

Kassen Delano had a career-best four-point game (3g, 1a) as Notre Dame lost a tough, 10-8 decision at Northwestern in the 2004 NCAA Tournament.

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. Allison McKeown, Allison Schindler, Mimi Baveye and Courtney Farrell scored single goals for the Big Red. Cornell jumped out to an early 3-0 lead over the first 8:19 of the game. Following the third goal, head coach Tracy Coyne called a timeout to settle her team down. The strategy worked as Foote scored a little over a minute later to start the Irish on a 10-1 run that would give Notre Dame a six-goal lead early in the second half. 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. Notre Dame then ran off the next five goals in a seven-minute span to make it 16-7. Dowd would close the scoring with 1:33 left for the final of 16-8. Notre Dame out shot Cornell by a 29-26 margin. Maggie Fava made eight saves while giving up 15 goals. Mary Montague gave up one goal on the only shot she would face. The win marked the 200th victory of Irish head coach Tracy Coyne’s career. #10 Cornell #7 Notre Dame

NCAA Tournament History 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 fivepoint 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 freeposition goal at 28:35 to make it 6-6. Stanwick scored her second of the afternoon at 26:18 to restore the Georgetown lead at 7-6. The score would stay that way until 20:57 when McKinney scored her first goal of the half on a free-position shot to even the score at 7-7.

Notre Dame’s first-ever win against Georgetown on May 20, 2006 sent the Irish to the 2006 NCAA Finals in Boston, Mass.

Stanwick gave Georgetown its final lead of the game (8-7) when she scored at 18:47. From there, the potent Notre Dame attack took over as the Irish scored four straight goals – one by McKinney, one by Carpenter and two by Foote – to make it 11-8. Sutton scored with 7:37 left to make it 11-9 and McKinney closed the scoring with her third goal with 4:08 left in the game. For the game, the Irish out shot Georgetown 26-18 and allowed just seven shots in the second half. Carol Dixon made three saves for Notre Dame while Koch had eight saves for the Hoyas. – 9 – 12

Dartmouth got off to a fast start in the second half, scoring the first three goals to make it 9-3. McKinney and Ferguson scored 3:10 apart to make it 9-5 but again Dartmouth scored three straight to open a seven-goal lead. Foote scored her third of the game to make it 12-6 only to see Hazel and Leibovitz close the Big Green scoring with under six minutes left to run the lead to 14-6. McKinney (her third) and Ferguson (her second) each scored in the last minute of the game for the 14-8 final. Dartmouth out shot Notre Dame, 25-19. Carol Dixon finished with six saves while Devon Wills had four stops for the Big Green. #7 Dartmouth 6 8 – 14 #6 Notre Dame 3 5 – 8

2006 NCAA Tournament – Semifinals #7 Dartmouth 14, #6 Notre Dame 8 May 26, 2006 • Boston, Mass.

Notre Dame saw its dream season come to an end in the NCAA semifinals at Boston University’s Nickerson Field as the Irish were defeated by the Dartmouth Big Green, 14-8, in front of a crowd of 3,701. The loss ended Notre Dame’s finest season ever at 15-4 while Dartmouth moved on to face Northwestern in the NCAA title game. As usual, the Irish were paced by All-American and Tewaaraton Trophy finalist Crysti Foote who had three goals and two assists in her final game for the Irish. Caitlin McKinney added three goals of her own and Heather Ferguson scored twice on the evening. Dartmouth was led by Whitney Douthett with four goals and two assists and Kristen Zimmer also had six points with three goals and three assists. Casey Hazel, Sarah Szefi and Kristen Barry each had two goals to round out the Big Green scoring. Known for its stingy defense, Dartmouth took the play to the Irish early in the game, scoring the first four goals. Douthett scored twice with Szefi and Zimmer contributing a goal each in the first eight minutes. McKinney and Foote answered for the Irish, cutting the lead to 4-2.

The teams traded goals when Nielsen got her first of six at 8:56 only to see Stoeckert score 29 seconds later for a 4-2 lead. Northwestern knotted the score with goals from Bowen and Matthews to make it 4-4 with 3:42 left in the first half. Billings put the Irish ahead 5-4 at 3:19 but Bowen tied the game with nine seconds left in the half for a 5-5 score. The second half belonged to the Wildcats as they ran off the first four goals of the stanza to take a 9-5 lead with 20:50 remaining and cruised to the 15-7 final score. The win was the seventh consecutive win for Northwestern in the all-time series with Notre Dame and was the second time that the Wildcats have eliminated the Irish in NCAA Tournament play as they also did it in 2004. #10 Notre Dame #1 Northwestern

NCAA Tournament History 2009 NCAA Tournament – Quarterfinals #3 North Carolina 16, #6 Notre Dame 10 May 16, 2009 • Chapel Hill, N.C. The Notre Dame women’s lacrosse team saw its 2009 season come to an end at the hands of the North Carolina Tar Heels in the second round of the NCAA Tournament played at hot, muggy Fetzer Field on the UNC campus on a Saturday afternoon. The Tar Heels used a balanced attack, strong goalkeeping and a stingy defense as they held the Irish to just 10 goals in a 16-10 loss. Senior Jillian Byers, playing in her final game for Notre Dame, led the Irish with five goals and one assist, including all four Notre Dame goals in the second half. Kailene Abt scored twice while Kaitlin Keena added a goal and two assists. Junior Gina Scioscia and Jackie Doherty added a goal and an assist in the game. Sophomore Ansley Stewart assisted on a pair of goals. North Carolina’s balanced attack featured three players with three goals each as Corey Donohue, Jenn Russell and Megan Bosica led the Tar Heels offense. Kristen Carr and Chelsea Brooks each had two goals with Laura Zimmerman, Kristen Taylor and Katie Brooks adding a goal each. Taylor added three assists while Russell had one to lead Carolina with four-point games. The Tar Heels out shot the Irish, 34-28, in the game. Junior goalkeeper Logan Ripley made 12 saves in the game while Erin Goodman had nine stops in the Irish goal. The loss ended one of the best campaigns in the Notre Dame program’s history as the Irish finished the year with a 16-5 overall record. #6 Notre Dame #3 North Carolina
