  3. Notre Dame Squeaks By Mexico

    Apr 7, 2013, 3:27 PM EST

    The ball snuck just inside the right post, nestling softly into the back of the net and setting off a thunderous chorus of approval from the heavily Hispanic crowd. Tanya Samarzich’s third goal of the evening pushed Mexico into a 3-2 lead, and with just ten minutes remaining, prospects of victory looked bleak for Notre…

  7. A Season of Growth

    Nov 26, 2012, 2:11 PM EST

    Losses can be difficult to deal with, especially if they are season-ending ones like the Irish’s 1-0 postseason loss to FSU. However, it helps to put things in perspective by looking back to the beginning of the season. The Irish have made tremendous strides since then. If you would have asked anyone how far the Irish would…

  8. Everything to Gain for the Irish

    Nov 21, 2012, 5:37 PM EST

    Right now, the majority of college soccer players are done with their season. This means no more daily practices, endless traveling, or weekend games. In fact, they are probably headed home to visit their families for Thanksgiving. The Irish, on the other hand, are one of the select few teams still lucky enough to be…

  12. Irish Survive Lightning, Stop Panthers

    Nov 9, 2012, 9:50 PM EST

    Considering I had woken up to frost on more than one occasion this week, Friday’s weather seemed unseasonably warm. Even as I arrived for Notre Dame’s NCAA tournament game against Wisconsin-Milwaukee, the temperature was in the 50s.

  15. Freshman Scores to Advance in BIG EAST Tournament

    Oct 30, 2012, 2:28 PM EST

  25. Getting Back on Track

    Sep 14, 2012, 2:30 PM EST

    One thing I know about soccer is that a loss is not always a bad thing. Sometimes, a tough loss can be exactly the motivation a great team needs in order to reach its full potential. I can personally attest to this, as a member of the 2010 national championship Notre Dame women’s soccer team. Leading…
