PREVIEW

• Christine Halfpenny becomes Notre Dame’s second head coach since women’s lacrosse gained varsity status in 1997. She comes to the Irish after spending five seasons in charge of the William & Mary program, finishing with four straight 10-win season and back-to-back CAA regular season championships in ’08 and ’09. • The Irish look to rely on goaltending in the upcoming campaign, as junior Ellie Hilling returns to man the cage for the third consecutive season. Over her first two seasons, Hilling has started each of the 37 contests the Irish have played, recording 21 wins in the process. She also has recorded 262 saves in that span. • Senior attacker Maggie Tamasitis was named a Preseason Third Team All-American by Inside Lacrosse. She is only 15 assists away from the school record.
