    Oct 2, 2013, 10:25 AM EDT

  2. Notre Dame Squeaks By Mexico

    Apr 7, 2013, 3:27 PM EDT

    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…

  3. Irish Survive Lightning, Stop Panthers

    Nov 9, 2012, 9:50 PM EDT

    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. The weather was warm, but just minutes before kick off, the sky opened up and the rain came…

  5. Halloween Fun for Irish Soccer

    Oct 31, 2012, 9:57 AM EDT

    One of the downsides to playing a sport in college is that you sometimes have to miss out on fun events like Halloween. This year, instead of dressing up for Halloween, the Notre Dame women’s soccer team will be traveling to Connecticut as they prepare to take on Marquette in the BIG EAST semifinals. Luckily, the…

    Sep 17, 2012, 11:40 PM EDT

    As of this week, Notre Dame is now a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference, but its time with the BIG EAST is not over yet. This year marks possibly the final season that Notre Dame women’s soccer will play in the BIG EAST, and conference play opened this wekeend. The Friday game against Louisville…

  8. Getting Back on Track

    Sep 14, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    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…

  9. Back in the Swing of Things

    Sep 13, 2012, 4:36 PM EDT

    Aside from those who study abroad, most college students are not overseas for their first three weeks of class. Every so often, however, there comes along an exception. This year, Notre Dame had two. Junior Mandy Laddish and freshman Cari Roccaro had been in Japan since early-mid August playing on the FIFA Under-20 Women’s US Soccer Team. The tournament ran…

  10. Weekend Recap: West Coast Swing

    Sep 10, 2012, 1:58 PM EDT

    It was a tough weekend for the “Baby Irish” as they failed to bring home a win during their west coast swing. Notre Dame began the weekend facing off against the No. 19 Portland Pilots. Portland, historically one of the best women’s teams, presented a challenge for the Irish as they battled to a 1-1 draw.…

    In the annual adidas Invitational, the “Baby Irish” split a pair of games at Alumni Stadium this weekend.
