UNIVERSITY OF NOTRE DAME

W

hen Father Edward F. Sorin arrived in the northern Indiana wilderness, he had only $310, 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, Notre Dame would evolve into a preeminent place for Catholic thought. While becoming one of the top undergraduate institutions in the country, Notre Dame also has 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 also has stressed residential life, with four-of-five students living on campus in 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 more than 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 Learfield Sports Directors’ Cup standings of the best overall athletics programs. The University is second only to KU

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 and the Center for Low Energy Systems Technology, 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, education 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. Father Jenkins is a native of Omaha, Neb.

DIRECTOR OF ATHLETICS

Jack Swarbrick

J

Vice President • Director of Athletics

ohn B. “Jack” Swarbrick Jr., a University of Notre Dame graduate now in his sixth year in 2013-14 as vice president and director of athletics at his alma mater, has attached his signature to a variety of new initiatives during his tenure: * Launching of Fighting Irish Digital Media—a major enterprise that delivers better information about and access to Notre Dame and its athletic programs via expanded production and distribution of programming. * Developing a plan for expanding Notre Dame Stadium in order to make it a year-round asset for the University while also improving the game day experience for student-athletes and fans. * Creation of new community outreach and youth programming activities. * Building of student-athlete programs and services that expand recognition of high academic achievement—and mentor and facilitate career development. * Meeting the performance needs of Notre Dame student-athletes through establishment of a new sports performance division. * Reaching out to more former Irish student-athletes, via the Notre Dame Monogram Club and other programs. In 2012-13 alone, Swarbrick played a major role in three significant announcements that positively impacted Notre Dame on the national collegiate scene: -- Creation by the Bowl Championship Series of the four-team College Football Playoff to begin with the 2014 season, with Notre Dame maintaining viable access into that system. -- Membership for Notre Dame’s athletic teams (other than football and hockey) in the Atlantic Coast Conference beginning with the 2013-14 athletic seasons. In football, Notre Dame will play five games per year against ACC opponents beginning in 2014 and also have full access to the league’s list of postseason bowl options. Notre Dame hockey now plays in Hockey East. -- An extension of the University’s relationship with NBC Sports through the 2025 football season. Swarbrick’s first five years combined featured a variety of on-and off-the-field Notre Dame athletics successes: * Number-one rankings for Notre Dame (among Football Bowl Subdivision schools) in the six most recent Graduation Success Rate (GSR) surveys--in 2012 at 99 for all-student-athletes (including football number one at 97, in the fourth consecutive year Notre Dame stood atop that chart). * Record involvement in community service hours by Irish student-athletes. * An appearance in the Bowl Championship Series football title game following the 2012 season—in an unprecedented year in which the Irish finished the regular season 12-0 to rank number one in the final BCS poll while also ranking number one in the GSR standings. * NCAA championships in 2011 in fencing (a men’s and women’s combined championship) and 2010 in women’s soccer. * NCAA runner-up team finishes in 2013 in fencing, 2012 and 2011 in women’s basketball, 2010 in men’s lacrosse, 2009 in fencing and 2008 in women’s soccer. * NCAA semifinal appearances in women’s basketball in 2013, men’s lacrosse in 2012, hockey in 2011, women’s tennis in both 2009 and 2010 and women’s soccer in 2009, plus 2010 and 2012 third-place fencing finishes.

* Construction of the 5,022-seat Compton Family Ice Arena that opened for the 2011-12 season and features two sheets of ice (one Olympic sized). The 2009-10 school year also featured dedications of new facilities for soccer and lacrosse--as well as opening of the new Purcell Pavilion within the south dome of the Joyce Center. Before coming back to Notre Dame, Swarbrick rose to national prominence as a lawyer, consultant and executive in the collegiate and Olympic sports industries Born in Yonkers, N.Y., and raised in Yonkers and Bloomington, Ind., he is a 1976 magna cum laude graduate of Notre Dame with a bachelor’s degree in economics. Upon graduating from Stanford University Law School in 1980, he returned to Indiana to accept a position as an associate in the Indianapolis law firm Baker & Daniels, one of the largest in the state. He was made partner in 1987 and spent 28 years with the firm. As a member of the Indiana Sports Corporation, including the chairmanship from 1992 to 2001, Swarbrick led many of Indianapolis’ successful proposals to a wide array of athletics organizations--from the National Football League (NFL) to the United States Olympic Committee (USOC) to the Big Ten Conference. His leadership efforts resulted in the city: * Earning the right to play host to the 2012 Super Bowl in Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium. * Becoming the home of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) national headquarters in 1999. * Hosting the 1987 Pan American Games, where Swarbrick served as the director of competition. * Hosting the 1991 World Gymnastics Championships. * Hosting NCAA Men’s Basketball Final Fours and other college championship competitions and a wide array of national and world championships in the Olympic sports. * Securing rights to host the Big Ten Conference men’s and women’s basketball tournaments at Conseco Fieldhouse for five consecutive years beginning in 2008. At Baker & Daniels Swarbrick served as general counsel for numerous national governing bodies of Olympic sports, including USA Gymnastics, and as a consultant to various bid cities and host committees for Olympic Games and world championships. In his work as an advisor to the NCAA, Swarbrick coordinated the men’s College Basketball Partnership, an NCAA-led group that addresses the opportunities and challenges in the sport; developed the business plan for the new NBA/NCAA youth basketball enterprise, iHoops; served as a member of the NCAA Division I Women’s Basketball Discussion Group, and chaired the NCAA/USOC task force dedicated to developing proposals to expand sponsorship of Olympic sports among NCAA member institutions. In 2000 Swarbrick received one of the NCAA’s highest honors, The Flying Wedge Award, for his work in establishing Indianapolis as the new home of the NCAA. In 2001 he was honored by the State of Indiana with the Sagamore of the Wabash Award. In 2002 he received the Pathfinder Award from Youthlinks Indiana for his service to youth in the state of Indiana. He received an honorary monogram from the Notre Dame Monogram Club in 2013. 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 senior at TCU; and Christopher, a University of Notre Dame junior.


ACADEMIC EXCELLENCE

Fighting Irish

Irish Athletes Again Ranked #1 In NCAA Graduation Ratings The University of Notre Dame again claims the 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 seventh straight year. The GSR number for all Notre Dame student-athletes rated the Irish first among the football-playing institutions in the NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision (formerly Division I-A). The 2013 NCAA figures are based on entering classes from 2003 through 2006. 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 four major categories among all major footballplaying colleges and universities. Notre Dame’s institutional research found that Irish student-athletes in 2013 rank number one in four of 10 major categories--ranking second in one other and third in two more. That’s based on the NCAA-issued GSR and federal figures released today. For the fifth year in a row Notre Dame leads the nation in four GSR categories-for all student-athletes (at 99), male student-athletes (98), female studentathletes (100) and black student-athletes (96). 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 88 percent of its student-athletes, just behind Stanford at 93 and Northwestern at 89.

In the GSR standings, the Irish led the way in four categories. In addition to its number-one ranking for all studentathletes (99), Notre Dame finished first among female student athletes at 100, first among male student-athletes at 98 percent (ahead of Duke at 97) and first among black student-athletes at 96 percent (ahead of Duke and Rice at 95). Notre Dame graduated 93 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 84 percent federal rate was third (behind Stanford at 90 and Northwestern at 88). Notre Dame graduated 79 percent of its black student-athletes, ranking fifth based on the federal rate, and Irish football players graduated at a 75 percent rate, to rank ninth.

Notre Dame Athletics Leads The Way In NCAA’s APR The University of Notre Dame ranks number one once again among all Football Bowl Subdivision institutions with 15 of its athletics programs receiving 2013 Academic Progress Rate public recognition awards, as announced today by the NCAA, honoring Division I sports teams for their latest multi-year APR scores. These 15 Irish teams posted multiyear APR scores in the top 10 percent of all squads in their respective sports. In their seventh year, the public recognition honors are part of the broad Division I academic reform effort. These awards are based on APR numbers that represent the combination of scores from the 2008-09, 2009-10, 2010-11 and 2011-12 academic years. Here are the 15 Notre Dame programs honored this year for multi-year achievement: • Men’s Sports (11): baseball, basketball, cross country, fencing, golf, lacrosse, soccer, swimming and diving, tennis, indoor track and field, and outdoor track & field.

• Women’s Sports (4): cross country, golf, softball, and swimming and diving. Notre Dame’s 15 recognized sports this year follow two consecutive years (2012 and 2011) that a programbest 17 Irish teams were honored with the award. The NCAA recognized 15 Notre Dame programs in 2010 after 14 programs were honored in 2009. Eleven Irish teams earned recognition each of the previous two years, in both 2007 and 2008. Here are the FBS institutions that ranked in the top 10 this year, in terms of programs honored: 1. (tie) Notre Dame, Duke 15; 3. Northwestern 14; 4. (tie) Boston College, Stanford 13; 6. (tie) Penn State, Vanderbilt 8; 8. Rice 7; 9. (tie) Texas, Illinois, Ohio State 6. The APR provides a real-time look at a team’s academic success each semester by tracking the academic progress of each student-athlete. The APR includes both retention at an institution and academic eligibility in its calculation and provides a clear picture of the academic culture in each sport. The effort is part of a publicrecognition program the NCAA Division I Board of Directors approved in January 2006. Notre Dame has received public recognition awards each of the eight years of the program.

Fighting Irish Tennis Receives BIG EAST Academic Recognition The BIG EAST Conference annually recognizes student-athletes who achieve an annual grade-point average of 3.0 or higher as conference academic all-stars. The Fighting Irish women’s tennis program boasted seven BIG EAST Academic All-Stars in 2012-13. Junior Jennifer Kellner was honored with a BIG EAST Scholar-Athlete Sport Excellence Award, one of five Notre Dame studentathletes bestowed with the recognition from the conference.

Season Preview

Sophomore Quinn Gleason had an incredible 20-3 record in the No. 3 singles spot in the 2012-13 season and was also named a member of the all-BIG EAST team. She will continue to play an integral role in the lineup this season.


SEASON PREVIEW

Fighting Irish

Three Experienced Seniors Lead A Deep And Promising Team Into the Atlantic Coast Conference The Irish won the BIG EAST Championship for six consecutive years before leaving the conference after 18 years. The Notre Dame women’s tennis team finished the 2012-13 season and its 18-year run in the BIG EAST conference with its sixth consecutive BIG EAST title, upping its number of championships to 13. Everything is set to change this year as Notre Dame moves to the Atlantic Coast Conference. Jay Louderback enters his 25th season as head coach at Notre Dame with a team that has a balance of veteran experience and youthful enthusiasm. Last year, the Irish went 18-9 on the season, beating nine nationally ranked foes. The team took down Marquette, DePaul and South Florida to win the BIG EAST title and then triumphed over 42nd-ranked North Carolina State in the first round of the NCAA Championships. The Irish eventually fell to 10th-ranked Michigan in the second round, and

finished the season ranked 24th in the country. Louderback was honored as BIG EAST Coach of the Year for the fourth consecutive season, and junior Britney Sanders was named BIG EAST Player of the Year. This year, seven monogram winners return, and the Irish welcome three freshmen: Mary Closs (Menlo Park, Calif.), Monica Robinson (Valley Center, Calif.) and Jane Fennelly (Rathmines, Ireland).

Singles Notre Dame graduated only one senior last year, Chrissie McGaffigan. With five out of six players from the singles lineup returning, Louderback remarks that experience will be one of the greatest strengths of this year’s team.

Named the BIG EAST Player of the Year as a junior, Britney Sanders returns for her senior campaign after going 15-12 in the No. 1 singles spot last year.

There is also a balance between the classes that allows for a lot of growth— three seniors, two juniors, four sophomores and three freshmen make up a symmetrical team of six upperclassmen and six underclassmen. “All three seniors have played a lot for us,” Louderback explains. “The experience that we have with them going into the ACC is going to be a big help. The younger kids have brought enthusiasm but are also very good players. We have a lot of depth and a lot of experience, which also pushes players because they know it’s going to be tough to get into our lineup.” Among the seniors, Britney Sanders After contributing as a freshman with a record of 4-3 in the No. 3 doubles spot with various partners, sophomore Julie Vrabel looks to enter the conversation for more playing time this spring.

Fighting Irish

returns from a junior season in which she went 15-12 in the No. 1 spot. This is senior Jennifer Kellner’s second season serving as a captain on the team, and senior Julie Sabacinski split her singles matches between the fifth and sixth spots last year. Sophomore Quinn Gleason also had a stellar freshman season, going 20-3 in the No. 3 singles spot. Juniors Katherine White and Molly O’Koniewski shared playing time in the No. 5 and No. 6 spots as well and look to step up in McGaffigan’s absence. Louderback also mentions sophomore Julie Vrabel, who did not see much action last spring after having shoulder surgery during her senior year of high school, but after a year of gaining more experience, she is ready to climb in the lineup.

Doubles

Schedule There will be a lot of adjusting this season as the Irish enter the ACC, and a daunting schedule awaits the team this spring. The challenges, however, are completely welcome to the Irish and Louderback. “Going to the ACC is going to be a big plus for us. There were so many teams last year that were ranked ahead of us—we were 23 and there were six ACC teams ranked ahead of us.” With tougher opponents, Notre Dame will have more chances to climb in the national rankings if they perform. Louderback also points out that toughness will be present during the entire season, unlike in previous years. “The front end of our schedule has always been the toughest,” he explains. “It

used to be that once we finished spring break, we didn’t have many matches left that were going to help us. And now it’s going to stretch through the whole year.” One of the toughest home matches will happen right off the bat, when the Irish play Georgia Tech Feb. 21. Last year, Notre Dame beat the Yellow Jackets in two very close matches, and Louderback says he expects things to be equally close this season. While in the BIG EAST, the Irish were used to busing around for away matches, but this year there will also be a lot more flying. In late February and March, Notre Dame will face Miami, Duke, Virginia and North Carolina all on the road. The spring season kicks off Jan. 18 against Western Michigan at the Eck Tennis Center.

Doubles will be exciting this season, Louderback says, because the Irish will have all new teams. Kellner played with McGaffigan last season and Sabacinski and Sanders have played together throughout their careers at Notre Dame. But Louderback looks to split them up this season with the idea that their experience will be better when paired with a younger player. “All three seniors are experienced in doubles—they’ve all played at one time or another at No. 1 doubles for us,” he says. “With that experience, it looks like we’re going to separate them and we could have a senior on all three doubles teams.” Doubles has always been a strength for the Notre Dame team, and Louderback says with this kind of experience at every spot in the lineup, doubles could be one of the driving forces of this season. And who falls into which spot remains to be seen, as the head coach says that any of the three seniors is capable of playing at No. 1 with a younger player. Junior Katherine White went 1-4 in the No. 5 spot and 4-3 in the No. 6 spot in singles last year and will help fill out this year’s lineup.

NOTRE DAME Fighting Irish

Coaching Staff

Jay Louderback enters the 2014 season with the third-most career dual match wins of any active coach in NCAA Division I women’s tennis at 628 wins. Before the Irish left the BIG EAST, Louderback was named the conference coach of the year 11 times and his teams won the last six consecutive BIG EAST titles.


HEAD COACH

Fighting Irish

JAY LOUDERBACK Head Coach 25th Season Wichita State ‘76

When Jay Louderback took over as women’s tennis head coach at Notre Dame in the fall of 1989, he inherited a program that had competed on the Division I level for just four years and had never participated in the NCAA tournament or earned a national ranking. As he enters his 25th season at the helm, Louderback has turned Notre Dame into one of the premier women’s tennis programs in the nation. The Irish have finished in the national top 30 in each of the last 21 seasons and have earned 20 berths to the NCAA Championships in that span. Notre Dame has captured 19 conference titles during Louderback’s tenure and has reached the round of 16 or further in the NCAA tournament on nine occasions, including three appearances in the quarterfinals (1996, 2006, 2007) and two consecutive trips to the semifinals (2009, 2010). The Courtney Tennis Center also has served as host of the 1998 NCAA Championships, largely due to his efforts. Louderback’s players have enjoyed great success under his tutelage. Twenty-nine AllAmerica awards have been given to a total of 12 different players, and four have garnered national awards from the ITA. In 24 years, 14 different Notre Dame players have garnered a total of 30 invitations to the NCAA Singles Championship and 11 different doubles squads have gained 18 berths into the NCAA Doubles Championship. Louderback’s players also have dominated University awards, winning the Francis Patrick O’Connor Award, given to one male and one female athlete each year who best embody the true spirit of Notre Dame, on seven occasions - more than any other sport. Louderback has had 11 winners of the Byron V. Kanaley Award, the most prestigious honor awarded to Notre Dame student-athletes, the most for any sport in the time since the Wichita State graduate arrived.

Another feature of Louderback’s leadership is academic excellence. Since the ITA began awarding the All-Academic Team award to squads maintaining a 3.20 GPA for the year, the Irish have earned the distinction 16 times in 18 years. Only one Division I school, Western Michigan, has a better mark, as the Broncos have won the award all 17 years. In addition, Louderback’s players have had a history of being named ITA ScholarAthletes, which recognizes monogram winners who maintain a 3.50+ GPA for the year. He also has produced a trio of Academic AllAmericans. Louderback also has been decorated with 14 conference coach-of-the-year awards, and seven times he has been named Midwest Region Coach of the Year. He was awarded the Wilson/ ITA National Coach of the Year in 2006. In 34 years of coaching, Louderback holds a 673-373 (.643) record, including a 628-342 (.647) mark coaching women’s tennis. At Notre Dame, he is 469-197 (.704), making him the winningest coach in program history. After guiding Notre Dame to a 17-8 record during his first year with the Irish in 1990, Louderback led the Irish to their first-ever national ranking the following season, finishing the year at 23rd after a 16-9 campaign. In individual action, Melissa Harris advanced to the second round of the NCAA Singles

Championship, becoming the first player in school history to accomplish the feat. The remainder of the 1990’s saw Louderback establish Notre Dame as a fixture among the nation’s elite. After the honor of helping the program earn its first-ever national ranking in 1990, Louderback and the Irish proved it was not a flash in the pan, winning conference championships on nine occasions in the decade (six Midwestern Collegiate Conference and three BIG EAST) as well as earning a spot in the NCAA Championship on six occasions. Seven times in the `90’s Louderback’s teams also found themselves ranked in the final ITA top 25 rankings, capped off by the

‘95-96 season where the team posted a record of 23-7 and advanced to the NCAA Quarterfinals for the first time in program history. That year’s team also became the first under Louderback’s tutelage to finish ranked in the top 10, completing the season as the sixth-best team nationally. In addition to his team’s success during the `90’s, several of Louderback’s players were recognized for their excellent individual play on the court. A total of five Irish players (Wendy Crabtree, Lisa Tholen, Jennifer Hall, Tiffany Gates, Michelle Dasso) were tabbed as Division I All-Americans, while Crabtree and Hall also became the first Irish players to be recognized for their academics after being selected CoSIDA Academic All-Americans in ‘96 and ‘99, respectively. Additionally, Hall became the first Irish player under Louderback to be touted as a Penn National Player to Watch in ‘96, while in that same season being named the first BIG EAST Championship Most Outstanding Performer. The turn of the new millennium saw the Irish continue to make strides to become one of the elite women’s programs in the nation. The 2000 Irish delivered a second straight 23-7 season and advanced to the national site of the NCAA Championship for the first time since `96, finishing with a final ranking of 13th. On April 15, 2000, Louderback registered his 400th career win with a victory over Miami. Louderback’s teams continued their strong regular season performances, as the 2001 squad posted a 20-win season for the fourth consecutive year, with a 25-5 record. Ranked 10th in the final ITA poll, the Irish advanced to the NCAA round of 16 for the second consecutive year and were ranked as

high as No. 5 during the regular season. Fourtime All-American Dasso became the first Irish player to be named the ITA National Senior Player of the Year and qualified for the NCAA singles tournament for the fourth time. She capped off the best season for an Irish women’s tennis player when she reached at least the semi- finals in three of the four ITA grand slam events. She became the first Notre Dame player to reach a grand slam final at the now-defunct National Clay Court Championships and made it to the semifinals of the NCAA Singles Championship. After a top-25 season in `02, the Irish won another BIG EAST title in 2003 and finished 21st nationally. The `03 season saw Notre Dame knock off #14 VCU to snap the Rams’ 38-match regular- season winning streak and 40-match home winning streak, while the Irish went on to finish 27th in the country. The 2004-05 campaign was marked by the outstanding play of sophomore twins Catrina and Christian Thompson, who reached the title match of the Riviera/ITA All-American Championships and the semis of the ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships en route to being the first squad in Irish history to reach the national #1 ranking in doubles. Despite a loss in the second round of the NCAA tournament, Notre Dame’s appearance in the `05 event assured that 20 consecutive classes, dating from 1990 through 2009, will have made at least one trip to the NCAA national event - a range of classes that includes every freshman since Louderback arrived at Notre Dame. In recognition of Louderback’s effort and success, Notre Dame’s Monogram Club bestowed upon him an honorary monogram in 1998. He joined an elite group of, at the time, six active Notre Dame head coaches to have been awarded an honorary monogram. In 2006, Louderback and the Irish went 27-2 and climbed as high as No. 2 en route to the NCAA quarterfinals. The Irish finished the season fifth in the ITA Rankings. After finishing 24th in 2005, ND was 22nd in the preseason before moving into the top five for good on Feb. 28.

The Irish finished 2007 with a 28-4 record and their second straight appearance in the NCAA Tournament quarterfinals. Twins Catrina and Christian Thompson earned AllAmerica honors in doubles for the third straight year. Louderback guided Notre Dame to a 22-9 record in 2008 and its 13th consecutive appearance in the NCAA Tournament. The Irish also captured their third BIG EAST title in four years. For his efforts, Louderback took home 2008 BIG EAST Coach-of-the-Year honors for the seventh time overall and second time in three seasons. Brook Buck and Kelcy Tefft captured the program’s second-ever title in an ITA national championship following their triumph at the ITA National Indoors in November. Buck and Tefft went on to earn All-America status and even reached the semifinals of the NCAA Doubles Championship - the furthest that any Notre Dame duo has advanced in the program’s history. The 2009 season saw the Irish make history when, for the first time in program history, the team advanced to the NCAA tournament semifinals. Notre Dame finished the year with a 28-5 record and ranked fifth in the final ITA poll. The Irish also won their second straight BIG EAST title and advanced to the ITA National Team Indoor semifinals.

Tefft was named the ITA National Player of the Year and the BIG EAST Player of the Year, while Frilling earned ITA National Player to Watch billing and BIG EAST Freshman of the Year honors. The Irish matched `09’s success, when in `10 Louderback and the Irish advanced to the NCAA tournament semifinals for the second year in a row. Notre Dame finished with a 26-4 record and ranked fifth in the final Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) poll. The Irish also won their third straight BIG EAST title with a 4-0 win over DePaul. Louderback’s squad also earned a trip to the ITA Indoor Championship. In 2011, Notre Dame reached postseason play for the 16th consecutive season, reaching the second round of the NCAA Championships after claiming its fourth straight BIG EAST Conference Crown. At the conclusion of the year, Notre Dame found itself ranked 20th in the nation after compiling a 17-10 record. Frilling earned her second-straight distinction of BIG EAST Player of the Year, while Shannon Mathews was named the conference tournament’s Most Outstanding Performer after earning the match-clinching point in each contest of the tournament. Frilling also made history, joining Dasso as the only two members of the Irish women’s tennis team to be tabbed an ITA All-American on four occasions. The success continued in 2012, as the Irish claimed their fifth consecutive BIG EAST Conference Championship and reached the second round of the NCAA Championships. Notre Dame posted a 21-8 team mark, including a perfect 5-0 in BIG EAST play. Mathews finished her Irish career by earning BIG EAST Player of the Year honors, as well as the distinction of being named ITA Midwest Region Senior of the Year. Frilling ended her decorated career with the third-most wins in program history (235), and was named to the All-BIG EAST Team for the fourth consecutive season. Frilling and Mathews also reached the No. 1 ranking in the ITA Doubles poll during the season, and were selected as ITA Doubles All-Americans. Prior to coming to Notre Dame, Louderback headed the men’s and women’s tennis programs at Iowa State for three years. He led the men’s squad to a 45-33 mark and the women’s team to a 37-51 record from 1986-89. In his final season with the Cyclones, Louderback’s men’s team finished

32

Fighting Irish fourth in the Big Eight, Iowa State’s highest conference finish in 25 years. Louderback began his coaching career at his alma mater, taking the helm of the Wichita State women’s program in just its fifth year of competition. He guided the Shockers to a 122-94 record in seven years, including two Gateway Conference championships (1984 and 1986) and a Missouri Valley Conference title (1982). Five of his seven teams either won a conference championship or finished as runners-up. During his tenure, the Shockers won 14 or more matches each season while 10 of his players qualified for postseason competition. Two of his players qualified for the NCAA Championships in both the 1983-84 and 1984-85 seasons. The 1980-81 Shockers set a school record with 21 wins, as the team earned its first postseason berth. The 21-win plateau was reached again the following season when Wichita State captured the MVC and Region IV championships. Louderback was voted 1982 Region IV Coach of the Year for his team’s outstanding accomplishments. A native of Arkansas City, Kan., Louderback was an assistant tennis professional at the Riverside Tennis Center in Wichita, Kan., and head tennis professional at the Y Tennis Center in Battle Creek, Mich., before taking the coaching position at Wichita State.

Louderback, who earned a bachelor’s degree in business administration from Wichita State in 1976, won a Missouri Valley Conference title at No. 3 singles during his senior year. For his efforts that season, Louderback was voted most valuable player by his teammates. In April 2003, the Louderback family was honored by the USTA with the Tennis Family of the Year Award, presented to one family consisting of USTA members and volunteers who have excelled in advancing the USTA’s mission to promote and grow the game of tennis both on and off the court. He and his wife, Denise, have one daughter, Bailey, who earned four monograms with the Irish tennis team and graduated in May 2008.

A standout player for head coach Jay Louderback from 2003-07, Thompson rejoins the Irish after working as an assistant coach at Boise State University the past two seasons. She helped guide the Broncos to a 13-10 record in 2013, earning ITA Mountain Region Assistant Coach of the Year honors. Boise State players received a total of six allMountain West Conference citations during Thompson’s tenure on head coach Beck Roghaar’s staff. 

Thompson began her collegiate coaching career as a volunteer assistant at Yale University during the 2010-11 season. The Bulldogs posted a 22-5 record and claimed the 2011 Ivy League Championship, ultimately reaching the second round of that year’s NCAA Championship. Yale finished the season as the number 31 team in the final ITA rankings. Following her collegiate playing career at Notre Dame, Thompson was a four-time doubles winner in professional events, claiming a pair of $10,000 tournaments (in St. Joseph, Mo. and Wichita, Kan.) during the summer of 2006. Thompson added pro doubles victories in Tampico, Mexico in 2007 and Houston, Texas in 2008. A United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA) certified teaching professional, Thompson also served as a tennis instructor at the Sutton East Tennis Club in New York City from 200811.  Thompson formed one of the most prolific doubles tandems in Notre Dame history alongside her twin sister Christian, reaching the number one position in the ITA doubles rankings during both the 2005 and 2006 seasons. The duo won a program record 104

matches (104-41) over four seasons, becoming the only doubles team in Irish history to surpass the 100-win plateau. The Thompsons won the prestigious Riviera/ITA All-American Championship in 2005, and were tournament runners-up in 2004 and 2006. They also reached the quarterfinals of the 2007 NCAA Championship, the second-best showing at the event in Notre Dame history. Thompson was a three-time doubles ITA All-American (2004-07), and was named the BIG EAST Championship Most Outstanding Player in 2005 and 2006. She was a seventime BIG EAST All-Tournament selection, claiming three singles honors (2004, 2005 and 2007) and copping a citation all four years she competed in the doubles ranks. Thompson added BIG EAST Academic All-Star distinction and was the women’s tennis recipient of the Notre Dame Club of St. Joseph Valley Rockne Student-Athlete Award in 2004-05. She was a four-time monogram winner, and selected as a senior co-captain for the 2006-07 season.  A native of Las Vegas, Nev., Thompson graduated with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree in marketing from the Mendoza College of Business in 2007.

NOTRE DAME Fighting Irish

History & Records

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


TENNIS TRADITION AT NOTRE DAME With 21 straight finishes in the national top 30, including a program-best No. 2 ranking in 2006 and 2007, and 19 berths in the NCAA tournament during that time, Jay Louderback’s women’s tennis program at the University of Notre Dame has solidified its spot among the country’s finest. Louderback enters his 25th season at Notre Dame having elevated the Irish to new levels. His teams have captured 19 conference titles and have advanced to the NCAA round of 16 or further nine times, including back-to-back appearances in the NCAA Semifinals in 2009 and 2010. Success, however, is nothing new to Notre Dame women’s tennis, which began in 1976 as the first varsity women’s sport at the University. The roots of the program’s recent success can be traced back to when Notre Dame first became a coeducational institution in 1972, and there were only 365 women present on the campus. This minority did not provide enough interest or depth to immediately warrant a women’s tennis program above the club level. But, by 1976, female enrollment had risen to 1,550, and the tennis team gained varsity status. Led by head coach Kathy Cordes, the Irish finished their first varsity season 7-3-1, and Jane Lammers and Mary Shukis became the first women to earn varsity monograms at Notre Dame. Notre Dame made great progress in its initial years and became a force on the state and national level in just its fourth season. The Irish notched an impressive come-from-behind victory in the 1979 Indiana Intercollegiate Women’s Championship and went on to finish 22nd in the national tournament. This showing led to the team’s promotion to Division II after only four years at the Division III level. A spring tennis season was added to the schedule for 1980-81, and the team successfully charted its first 20-win season, more than doubling its victory total from the previous year. In addition, the Irish captured the AIAW Division II State Championship title. This led to an appearance in the AIAW National Championship (20th-place finish). In 1982, the Irish placed first once again in the AIAW state and regional tournaments, going on to tie for sixth in the national championship. Much of the squad’s success was due to the play of freshman All-American Laura Lee. In individual action, Lee ran off six straight victories to capture the AIAW Division II national singles title in the No. 5 flight, becoming Notre Dame’s first women’s tennis

national champion. Joining Lee as one of the first two All-Americans in Irish women’s tennis history was sophomore Pam Fischette, who was the national runner-up at No. 3 singles. When the AIAW dissolved, the women’s tennis program took on NCAA Division II status and immediately became a contender for the national title. The Irish notched three consecutive top-three finishes from 1983-85 before being moved up to Division I. In both 1983 and ‘84, Notre Dame finished third in the NCAA Division II Championships. The following year, the Irish advanced to the national title match, losing to TennesseeChattanooga. With the team’s runner-up finish, head coach Sharon Petro earned Division II national coach-of-the-year honors. After competing as an independent during its initial seven years of varsity action, the Notre Dame women’s tennis team joined the North Star Conference in 1983-84, beginning a tradition of dominance in conference action that would see the Irish win 14 league titles in a row and 18 in the 25 years since giving up their independent status. The 1985-86 season saw the women’s tennis team reach another milestone in its short history – the team’s debut at the NCAA Division I level. First-year head coach Michele Gelfman led Notre Dame to a 28-6 record, with four of the losses coming by 5-4 scores. The win total still stands as the highest by an Irish team at the Division I level (tied with both the ’07 and ’09 seasons).

Fighting Irish The tradition of freshman excellence continued in 1987-88 as rookie CeCe Cahill became the first Irish women’s tennis player to compete in the NCAA Division I Championships. The first Notre Dame player to be listed in the national singles rankings, she qualified for the singles tournament, but dropped her first-round match 7-6 (7-3), 6-3 to Stanford’s Katy Tittle. The 1988-89 season proved to be another landmark in the program’s growth, marking the Irish debut in the Midwestern Collegiate Conference, in which it would win seven straight titles (after going unbeaten in five North Star Conference Championships). Louderback took over the Irish program in the fall of 1989, ushering in an era of unparalleled success. After a 17-8 campaign in his first season, the ‘90-91 Irish became the first team in the program’s history to crack the Division I team national rankings, while three individuals also received national listings. Melissa Harris – who was ranked as high as seventh nationally in singles during her career – became the first Notre Dame women’s tennis player to win a match in the NCAA Division I Singles Championship when she beat Northwestern’s Lindsay Matthews 6-3, 4-6, 6-2. Notre Dame entered the national stage in ’92-93, earning its first invitation to the NCAA Division I Championship and knocking off No. 19 Alabama to advance to the round of 16. Freshman Wendy Crabtree gained entrance to the NCAA Singles Championship and teamed


Fighting Irish with Lisa Tholen in the doubles draw, the first Irish doubles team to earn a spot in the event. Crabtree became Notre Dame’s first AllAmerican on the Division I level in ’93-94, garnering honors in singles and in doubles with Tholen. In addition, the team earned its second straight trip to the round of 16 and, for the first time in the history of the program, two players – Crabtree and Holyn Lord – earned spots in the NCAA singles field. The 1995-96 Irish squad reached the quarterfinals of the NCAA Championship – tied for the farthest Notre Dame had ever advanced in the event to that point. In addition, the Irish finished the season ranked sixth – the second highest final ranking in program history. Notre Dame also came away with the BIG EAST title in its inaugural year in the league. Jennifer Hall earned All-America honors as a freshman, and she played in the NCAA singles event, while Crabtree and Lord closed out their impressive careers playing in the NCAA doubles tournament for the second straight year. In ‘97, Hall advanced to the second round of the NCAA singles tournament and to the final 16 in the doubles championship with Tiffany Gates. Notre Dame also won its second straight BIG EAST championship, and Louderback was named the league’s coach of the year for the second consecutive year. Michelle Dasso began her illustrious career by setting the school record for singles wins in a season with a 40-8 record. Notre Dame’s Courtney Tennis Center served as the national site for the 1998 NCAA Championships (it remains the northernmost location ever selected for that distinction). Hall teamed with Tiffany Gates for the first of her two consecutive appearances in the NCAA doubles quarterfinals. Notre Dame turned in the first of back-toback 23-7 seasons in 1998-99, putting together a 12-match winning streak and winning its third BIG EAST title. Dasso joined Crabtree as the only players in school history at the time to have earned All-America honors in singles and doubles in the same season. She teamed up with Hall to reach the final eight of the NCAA Doubles Championship, matching the best-ever finish for an Irish team. A year later, Notre Dame advanced to the NCAA round of 16 for the first time since 1996 and won 14 of 15 matches in one lateseason stretch. For the fourth time in five years, the Courtney Tennis Center was selected as a host site for early-round NCAA Championship action in 2001. Notre Dame reached the final

TENNIS TRADITION AT NOTRE DAME 16 for the second consecutive year and finished 25-5 after peaking at fifth in the national rankings. It was the fourth consecutive 20-win season and the fewest losses for a Notre Dame team at the Division I level. Four-time All-American Dasso became the first Irish player to be named the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) National Senior Player of the Year and qualified for the NCAA singles tournament for the fourth consecutive season. She capped off the best season for an Irish women’s tennis player when she reached at least the semifinals in three of the four ITA grand-slam events. She became the first Notre Dame player to reach a grand-slam final, at the nowdefunct National Clay Court Championships, and made it to the semifinals of the NCAA Singles Championship. Dasso was ranked as high as No. 2 nationally in singles and fifth in doubles (with Becky Varnum), establishing program bests in both instances. Notre Dame won its fifth BIG EAST Championship in ’03, pulling out a thrilling 4-3 win over host and arch-rival Miami with a victory at No. 2 doubles in the last match remaining on court. Caylan Leslie and Alicia Salas both earned berths in the NCAA singles tournament, marking the fifth time since 1991 that two Notre Dame players gained entrance to the event. Salas became one of the nation’s top players during the 2003-04 season, peaking at 10th in the national singles rankings, while twins Catrina and Christian Thompson continued the tradition of freshman superlatives. The duo filled the No. 1 doubles spot all season and played Nos. 2 and 3 singles. The Thompsons became the first all-freshman doubles team (for any school) to be invited to the NCAA Doubles Championship since 1998, rallying for a three-set victory in the first round before falling in three sets in the round of 16 to finish the season ranked 26th. The Thompsons reached new heights in ‘0405, advancing to the title match of the season’s first grand slam, the Riviera/ITA AllAmerican Championships. The sophomore sisters then reached the semis in the ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships and surged to the national No. 1 ranking in doubles in early spring, achieving another program first. They earned a spot in the NCAA Doubles Championship and won a match to reach the round of 16 for the second consecutive season. Catrina also garnered an invitation to the singles event and prevailed in the opening round.

Notre Dame went 27-2 and climbed as high as No. 2 en route to the NCAA quarterfinals in 2006. The Irish finished the season fifth in the ITA Rankings, the highest final ITA ranking since becoming a Division I program in 198586. After finishing 24th in 2005, ND was 22nd in the preseason before moving into the top five for good on Feb. 28. The Irish were the top-ranked team in the ITA’s Midwest Region for the first time since 1999-2000. The Irish did not miss a beat in 2007. Notre Dame climbed as high as No. 2 in the rankings, again, and reached the NCAA quarterfinals for the second consecutive season. The Irish went 28-4 on the year and knocked off 13 opponents ranked in the top 25. Catrina and Christian Thompson were named AllAmericans for the third straight year in doubles. In 2013, Catrina Thompson became an assistant coach for the Irish. Over the past six seasons, Louderback and the Irish have continued to exert their conference and national prowess, claiming six straight BIG EAST Championships en route to earning the league’s automatic NCAA Championship bid each season. After reaching the second round in ’08 on the heels of a 22-9 ledger, Louderback’s teams went on to earn back-to-back berths in the NCAA Semifinals in ’09 and ’10, marking the best finishes the Irish have ever had in the Division I NCAA Championship. The 2011, 2012 and 2013seasons saw the Irish advance to the second round before bowing out of the tournament. Additionally, Louderback, who was four times tabbed as the conference Coach of the Year in that span, saw his players recognized for individual merits. Kelcy Tefft and Kristy Frilling climbed to the top spot of the doubles rankings in ’08-09 before finishing the year ranked second in the nation, a ranking that sits as the highest ranking in program history in doubles. That mark was matched only one year later when Frilling, now teamed with Kali Krisik, went 25-0 during the dual season to finish second nationally. After a brilliant four-year career with the Irish program, Frilling also established herself as one of the greats in women’s tennis program history. The only five-time AllAmerican in program history, and a two-time BIG EAST Player of the Year, Frilling served as the primary No. 1 for the Irish from her sophomore season in ’09 on and piled up 42 wins at that court. She also served as part of the main doubles team that amassed a 92-15 dual record on the No.1 court.

Fighting Irish

Notre Dame Women’s Tennis All-Americans In the 36 years of varsity competition, 15 Irish women’s tennis players have been tabbed AllAmericans. In 1982, Pam Fischette and Laura Lee became the program’s first two All-Americans. To qualify for All-America honors in AIAW Division II (in which Notre Dame competed at the time), a player had to reach the title match at her position in the national championships. Since becoming a Division I program in 1986, Notre Dame has had 13 players earn a total of 29 All-America honors. The All-America teams are selected by the Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) each year, with the governing body of collegiate tennis naming all players who meet at least one of three criteria in singles or doubles. In singles, an individual must 1) finish in the top 20 of the final ITA national singles rankings; 2) earn one of the 16 seeds in the NCAA Singles Championship; or 3) advance to the round of 16 in the NCAA Singles Championship. To earn All-America mention in doubles, a player must 1) finish in the top 10 of the final ITA national doubles rankings; 2) earn one of the eight seeds in the NCAA Doubles Championship; or 3) advance to the quarterfinals in the NCAA Doubles Championship. Kristy Frilling set a program record with her fifth All-American honor, and third in doubles, in 2012. The 15 Irish All-Americans are featured below with their qualifying criteria and career stats noted.

First presented in 1993, the Francis Patrick O’Connor Award is named in honor of a former Irish wrestler who died in 1973 following his freshman year at Notre Dame. The award is presented upon nomination of head coaches and is given to one male and one female student-athlete who best display the total embodiment of the true spirit of Notre Dame as exemplified by their contribution and inspiration to their teams and possess such characteristics as caring, courage, confidence, encouragement, humility, honesty, humor, kindness, and patience. More women’s tennis players have won the Francis Patrick O’Connor Award than student-athletes from any other sport, including five recipients since 2000.

Byron V. Kanaley Award The most prestigious honor awarded to a Notre Dame studentathlete, the Byron V. Kanaley Award has been presented each year since 1927 to senior monogram athletes who have been exemplary as students and leaders. The awards, presented by the Faculty Board on Athletics, are named in honor of a 1904 Notre Dame graduate who was a member of the Irish baseball team as an undergraduate. Kanaley went on to a successful banking career in Chicago and served the University as a lay trustee from 1915 until his death in 1960. Ten members of the Notre Dame women’s tennis team have received the award since 1990, the most of any sport during that span.

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

1996

Notre Dame players have been regular participants in the NCAA Singles and Doubles Championships since moving to the Division I level. The Irish have had at least one player earn a berth in the NCAA singles tournament in 24 of the last 26 seasons. On eight occasions, a pair of Irish competitors earned invitations to the event. In 1992, Melissa Harris became the first Notre Dame player to win a match in the NCAAs. In her fourth consecutive singles appearance in 2001, former Notre Dame assistant coach Michelle Dasso reached the semifinals, marking the best finish ever for an Irish player. In doubles play, Wendy Crabtree and Lisa Tholen made history when they became the first Irish duo to play in the NCAAs, in 1993. In ‘94, they advanced to the final eight to earn AllAmerica honors. Jennifer Hall and Tiffany Gates matched Crabtree and Tholen with their ’98 quarterfinal appearance, with Hall and Dasso also reaching the quarters in ’99. Dasso made return trips to the tournament in 2000 and ‘01 with Becky Varnum. The Irish have had at least one entrant in each of the NCAA Doubles Championship in 17 of the last 18 years. The Thompson twins, Christian and Catrina, became the first Irish duo to reach the tournament three times (eventually participated all four years). In the early days of the program, the Irish excelled in the AIAW national championships. Laura Lee, just a freshman at the time, won the national title at No. 5 singles in 1982, while Pam Fischette was the runner-up at No. 3 singles the same year.

Fighting Irish

Irish Players in the Collegiate Grand Slam Events The collegiate grand slam consists of the three most prestigious individual national tournaments in college tennis: the ITA All-American Championships (played in October), the ITA National Intercollegiate Indoor Championships (played in November now after being a February event until 2001-02), and the year-end NCAA Championships. From 1986 until 200001, the September National Clay Court Championships made up the fourth leg of the collegiate grand slam, but the event is no longer played. Irish players have had considerable success in the collegiate grand slam events. Michelle Dasso reached at least the quarterfinals in each of the four events in 2000-01, highlighted by a runner-up finish in the Clay Court Championships. Jennifer Hall is the only other player to reach the singles semifinals in a collegiate grand-slam event, with her finish in the 1996 National Indoors. In 2005-06, Catrina Thompson and Christian Thompson became the first Irish doubles team to capture an Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) national championship.

Following seven years competing as an independent, the University of Notre Dame women’s tennis team has had incredible success in conference action over the past 29 years. The Irish have been league champions 25 times, including a streak of 14 consecutive conference titles from 1983-84 to 1996-97 and a 27-match conference winning streak from 1983-98. Notre Dame has a 94-7 (.930) all-time record against conference foes, including 53-2 (.964) in the regular season. The Irish won North Star Conference championships in each of its five years of membership (1983-84 to 1987-88), then captured seven Midwestern Collegiate Conference titles from 1988-89 to 1994-95. Since joining the BIG EAST Conference in 1995-96, Notre Dame has won 13 championships and finished as the league¹s runner-up on five occasions. All 16 members of the BIG EAST Conference field teams in women’s tennis, but the league does not require roundrobin competition during the season. The top 12 teams, as selected by the conference based on national ranking and head-to-head results, earn invitations to the year-end BIG EAST Championship, a single-elimination team tournament with the winner gaining the league’s automatic berth in the NCAA Championship. Prior to 2001, all 14 teams qualified for the conference tournament, with the top two seeds gaining byes into the quarterfinals. For more information on the BIG EAST Conference, see page 91. Notre Dame defeated Syracuse in the 2005 final and South Florida in the 2006 final, but lost to the Bulls in the 2007 championship. Notre Dame topped South Florida for the ‘08 title, edged DePaul in 2009, and defeated DePaul again in 2010. In 2011, 2012 and 2013, the Irish again topped South Florida for the title. The Irish faced nowdeparted Miami in the title match of the BIG EAST Championship over nine straight seasons, winning in 1996, ’97, ’99, 2001, and ’03. In 27 early-round matches (first round through semifinals), Notre Dame is undefeated, having registered 25 shutouts. Overall, Notre Dame is 41-5 in the event. The Irish have been the top seed heading into the tournament in every year but 2003, when they were the No. 2 seed. Notre Dame mentor Jay Louderback has been named the BIG EAST’s Coach of the Year 10 times, while Irish student-athletes have been tabbed the league championship’s Most Outstanding Player on 10 occasions.

COURTNEY TENNIS CENTER Notre Dame’s Courtney Tennis Center, the home of Irish women’s tennis since the establishment of the varsity program in 1980, has played host to the nation’s top players on a number of occasions, while becoming an extremely difficult place for opposing teams to win. Playing at both the Courtney Tennis Center and in the Eck Tennis Pavilion, the Irish have compiled an all-time home record of 321-74 for an impressive .813 winning percentage. Only once has Notre Dame had a losing home record, when it won just one of four matches at the Courtney Tennis Center in 1977, its second varsity season. The Irish have posted undefeated marks at home on eight occasions: 12-0 in 1981; 6-0 in ’82; 14-0 in ’86; 8-0 in ’89; 8-0 in ’90; 12-0 in 2000, 16-0 in ‘06; 11-0 in ‘07. Notre Dame has posted one-loss seasons at home in nine other campaigns. Due to its exceptional facilities, Notre Dame has played host to a number of prestigious events, including serving as the national site of the NCAA Championships four times. Just four years after it was built, the Courtney Tennis Center played host to the 1971 NCAA Division I Men’s Tennis Championships, which featured what is still considered by coaches to be the finest collection of collegiate tennis talent ever assembled. In that spring classic, freshman Jimmy Connors of UCLA defeated Stanford’s Roscoe Tanner in five sets to capture the singles title. That pair would go on to reach a combined 17 grand-slam singles finals on the pro tour, including eight victories. The NCAA men’s tournament came to Notre Dame again in 1994, while the NCAA Division I Women’s Tennis Championships were played at the Courtney Tennis Center in 1998. It still stands as the northern-most facility ever to play host to the NCAA women’s tennis championships. Florida defeated Duke in the title match, while Blue Devil Vanessa Webb claimed the singles crown. In doubles, the California pair of Amanda Augustus and Amy Jenson won the first of their back-to-back NCAA doubles titles. In all, the Courtney Tennis Center has been the site of NCAA action on 15 occasions, including every year from 1994-2002 for either women’s or men’s play. In addition, it has played host to conference championships on 11 occasions (three North Star, six Midwestern Collegiate, two BIG EAST), as well as an Intercollegiate Tennis Association Summer Circuit event for 10 straight years (1994-2003). During the early days of the program, Notre Dame played host to the Irish Invitational, a fall event, for 11 consecutive years from 1977-87. The Irish played exclusively at the Courtney Tennis Center during their first 11 varsity seasons, compiling a 79-22 (.782) record. Since the Eck Tennis Pavilion was completed in 1987, it has become the predominant location of Notre Dame’s home matches, while the Courtney Tennis Center has become a regular site for late-season matches and NCAA competition, as well as continuing to be an integral practice facility during both the fall and spring. The Irish have been particularly effective at the Courtney Tennis Center since ’88, posting a 35-6 (.854) mark.

Fighting Irish

The Courtney Tennis Center has played host to NCAA Championship action 15 times, including serving as the national site of the 1998 NCAA Championships. Notre Dame has put together a number of long winning streaks at home, highlighted by a 31-match win streak from Feb. 27, 2005 to April 6, 2008. The Irish won 25 in a row at the Courtney Tennis Center over a span of more than four years from 1979-83. Notre Dame won 23 straight from 1988-91, and, more recently, put together a 21-match regular-season home winning streak from 1999-2000. On 39 occasions (in 74 matches), top-25 opponents have come to Notre Dame and left with a defeat. Among the biggest home wins have been seven victories against top-10 foes, including a pair of victories over BYU and DePaul (both ranked No. 9 at the time of the match) in 2006 and a win over No. 7 North Carolina in 2007. In all, the Courtney Tennis Center and Eck Tennis Pavilion have combined to play host to a showdown of top-25 teams 72 times, with Notre Dame prevailing on 36 occasions. The Irish have been particularly dominant at home against teams not ranked in the national top 25, as Notre Dame holds a remarkable 170-7 (.960) record since the 1988-89 season. That includes a current streak of 67 consecutive wins against nontop-25 foes at home, dating back to 2002. Since opening in 1967, the Courtney Tennis Center has undergone a variety of improvements. Most recently, 14 of the courts were newly resurfaced during the summer of 2003 and the facility was reoriented in the winter of 2004 as construction began on the neighboring Guglielmino Family Athletics Center. That undertaking saw the construction of a new tournament center tower, while the seating was moved from the west to the east end, which now plays host to varsity matches, making it more convenient for the teams headquartered in the Eck Tennis Pavilion.

The home of Irish tennis for nearly 40 years, the construction of the Courtney Tennis Center was financed entirely by prominent Washington, D.C., attorney Jeremiah Courtney. The numerous courts and brand-new laykold surface make it a popular spot for students and faculty, as well as the varsity tennis teams. Courtney is a 1932 graduate of Columbia University, where he captained the tennis team. His two sons attended Notre Dame and played tennis under legendary coach Tom Fallon. The first home of Irish tennis was the Notre Dame Fieldhouse, which played host to Irish home matches until the Courtney Tennis Center was built. The structure was razed in 1983. Indoor courts in Notre Dame’s Joyce Center also were used sporadically before the Eck Tennis Pavilion’s construction. Since its completion in June of 1987, Notre Dame’s Eck Tennis Pavilion has been an integral part of the success of Irish tennis, allowing the team to practice year-round, regardless of weather conditions, and providing an alternative surface to further develop the all-around skills of Notre Dame’s players. Additionally, it has become an extremely difficult for opponents to be victorious and has attracted some of the top events in collegiate tennis.

The combination of the Eck Tennis Pavilion and Courtney Tennis Center has allowed the University of Notre Dame to be the national site of the NCAA Championships. The NCAA men’s tournament came to Notre Dame again in 1994, while the NCAA Division I Women’s Tennis Championships were played at the Courtney Tennis Center in 1998. It still stands as the northern-most facility ever to play host to the NCAA women’s tennis championships. Florida defeated Duke in the title match, while Blue Devil Vanessa Webb claimed the singles crown. In doubles, the California pair of Amanda Augustus and Amy Jenson won the first of their back-to-back NCAA doubles titles. In all, Notre Dame has been the site of NCAA action on 15 occasions, including every year from 1994-2002 for either women’s or men’s play. In addition, the Eck Tennis Pavilion has three times welcomed the Intercollegiate Tennis Association’s Midwest Region Indoor Championships and six times helped play host to the Midwestern Collegiate Conference Championship and most recently the BIG EAST Championships in both 2010 and ‘11. After its completion, the facility featured the Eck Classic for 16 consecutive years and also has provided additional courts for the men’s Tom Fallon Invitational, now the Bobby Bayliss Invitational. Notre Dame has put together a number of long winning streaks at home, highlighted by the 31-match win streak from Feb. 27, 2005 to April 6, 2008. The Irish won 25 in a row at the Courtney Tennis Center over a span of more than four years from 1979-83. Notre Dame won 23 straight from 1988-91, and, more recently, put together a 21-match regular-season home winning streak from 1999-2000. On 37 occasions (in 73 matches), top-25 opponents have come to Notre Dame and left with a defeat. Among the biggest home wins have been seven victories against top-10 foes, including a pair of victories over BYU and DePaul (both ranked No. 9 at the time of the match) in 2006 and 2007’s win over No. 7 North Carolina. In all, the Courtney Tennis Center and Eck Tennis Pavilion have combined to play host to a showdown of top25 teams 73 times, with Notre Dame prevailing on 37 occasions. The Irish have been particularly dominant at home against teams not ranked in the national top 25, as Notre Dame holds a remarkable 163-7 (.959) record since the 1988-89 season. That includes a current streak of 60 consecutive wins against nontop-25 foes at home, dating back to 2002. The summer of 2003 saw the Eck Tennis Pavilion newly renovated, as all six courts were resurfaced (changing them from red to green) and the color scheme was changed to blue and gold throughout the building. Among the other highlights were numerous pieces of new wood furniture, as well as additional trophy cases and other accessories. The facility features the offices for both the men’s and women’s tennis coaches, as well as locker rooms for both teams and a spacious spectator viewing area upstairs that is ideally suited for videotaping.

“It is truly one of the great collegiate indoor tennis facilities in the country,” says Irish head coach Jay Louderback. In Sept. 1988, the Eck Pavilion received the 1988 United States Tennis Association (USTA) Award for architectural design. As a result, the USTA presented the facility with a handsome wooden plaque, a large sign placed in front of the pavilion and a complimentary one-year membership in the USTA. In addition, the facility and its award are recognized in an inscription on a large mahogany board displayed in the lobby of the USTA National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadow, N.Y. The facility was underwritten by Franklin E. Eck. He was chairman and chief executive officer of Advanced Drainage Systems, Inc., which produces corrugated plastic drainage pipe for agricultural and commercial purposes. A 1944 chemical engineering graduate at Notre Dame, Eck earned an M.B.A. from Harvard University in 1949. In 1984, he endowed a collection in Notre Dame’s Hesburgh Library. The generosity of Eck also made Notre Dame’s baseball facility, Frank Eck Stadium, and the Eck Visitor’s Center possible. The Eck Tennis Pavilion is the third facility to play host to indoor Irish tennis action. The Notre Dame Fieldhouse, which was razed in 1983, was the first home of Notre Dame’s varsity team, and the Irish also sporadically used courts in the Joyce Center.

ATLANTIC COAST CONFERENCE The Tradition Consistency. It is the mark of true excellence in any endeavor. However, in today’s intercollegiate athletics, competition has become so balanced and so competitive that it is virtually impossible to maintain a high level of consistency. Yet the Atlantic Coast Conference has defied the odds. Now, in its 61st year of competition, the ACC has long enjoyed the reputation as one of the strongest and most competitive intercollegiate conferences in the nation. And that is not mere conjecture, the numbers support it. Since the league’s inception in 1953, ACC schools have captured 131 NCAA championships, including 69 in women’s competition and 62 in men’s. In addition, NCAA individual titles have gone to ACC student-athletes 150 times in men’s competition and 106 times in women’s action. Given the ACC’s strong history and the strengthening of its ranks with the additions of Notre Dame, Pitt and Syracuse in 2013, followed by Louisville in 2014, those numbers – and the league’s longstanding tradition of excellence – appear destined to only grow greater in the years ahead.

2012-13 in Review The 2012-13 academic year saw ACC teams capture four more national team titles and seven individual NCAA crowns. In all, the ACC has won 62 national team titles over the last 16 years and has won two or more NCAA titles in 30 of the past 32 years. A total of 119 ACC teams placed in NCAA post-season competition in 2012-13. League teams compiled a 120-74-2 (.617) mark against non-league opponents in NCAA championship dual competition. The ACC’s new membership further bolsters the league’s already-strong academic standing among NCAA Division I conferences. The ACC’s member institutions, effective July 1, 2013, rank first among BCS automatic qualifying conferences in the latest US News & World Report’s “Best Colleges” list. ACC schools averaged a ranking of 55.73 and were the only conference with eight schools ranked among the top 50 (five public, three private). The ACC is also the only conference with 11 schools ranked among the top 70.

The Championships The conference will conduct championship competition in 25 sports during the 2013-14 academic year - 12 for men and 13 for women. The first ACC championship was held in swimming on February 25, 1954. The conference did not conduct championships in cross country, wrestling or tennis during the first year. The 12 sports for men include football, cross country, soccer, basketball, swimming, indoor and outdoor track, wrestling, baseball, tennis, golf and lacrosse. Fencing, which was started in 1971, was discontinued in 1981. Women’s sports were initiated in 1977 with the first championship meet held in tennis at Wake Forest University. Championships for women are currently conducted in cross country, field hockey, soccer, basketball, swimming, indoor and outdoor track, tennis, golf, lacrosse, softball and rowing with volleyball deciding its champion by regular season play.

A History The Atlantic Coast Conference was founded on May 8, 1953, at the Sedgefield Inn near Greensboro, N.C., with seven charter members - Clemson, Duke, Maryland, North Carolina, North Carolina State, South Carolina and Wake Forest - drawing up the conference by-laws. The withdrawal of seven schools from the Southern Conference came early on the morning of May 8, 1953, during the Southern Conference’s annual spring meeting. On June 14, 1953, the seven members met in Raleigh, N.C., where a set of bylaws was adopted and the name became officially the Atlantic Coast Conference.

Suggestions from fans for the name of the new conference appeared in the region’s newspapers prior to the meeting in Raleigh. Some of the names suggested were: Dixie, Mid-South, Mid-Atlantic, East Coast, Seaboard, Colonial, Tobacco, Blue-Gray, Piedmont, Southern Seven and the Shoreline. Duke’s Eddie Cameron recommended that the name of the conference be the Atlantic Coast Conference, and the motion was passed unanimously. The meeting concluded with each member institution assessed $200.00 to pay for conference expenses. On December 4, 1953, conference officials met again at Sedgefield and officially admitted the University of Virginia as the league’s eighth member. The first withdrawal of a school from the ACC came on June 30, 1971, when the University of South Carolina tendered its resignation. The ACC operated with seven members until April 3, 1978, when the Georgia Institute of Technology was admitted. The Atlanta school had withdrawn from the Southeastern Conference in January of 1964. The ACC expanded to nine members on July 1, 1991, with the addition of Florida State University. The conference expanded to 11 members on July 1, 2004, with the addition of the University of Miami and Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. On October 17, 2003, Boston College accepted an invitation to become the league’s 12th member starting July 1, 2005. The ACC added its 13th and 14th members on Sept. 18, 2011, when Pittsburgh and Syracuse accepted invitations to join the conference. The two schools officially join the ACC on July 1, 2013. Notre Dame also officially joined the ACC on July 1, 2013, after announcing on Sept. 12, 2012 its intention to enter the league for competition in all sports but football, bringing the membership of the conference to 15. The Fighting Irish will play five football games with ACC schools each year. On July 1, 2014, Louisville will enter the ACC from the Big East Conference. The ACC will remain a 15-member conference, as Maryland plans to join the Big Ten.
