This marks the fourth year that the Irish have played host to the NCAA women’s
lacrosse tournament. Notre Dame is 4-0 all-time on its home field in the tournament,
defeating Ohio State in 2002, both Cornell and Georgetown in 2006 and Vanderbilt in
2009. The Irish are in the field for the ninth time overall and the sixth time in
the last seven years. This is the third year in a row where Notre Dame has been
selected for the NCAAs, matching a school record set from 2008-10. Notre Dame’s best
finish was a trip to the 2006 semifinals.
High Point comes to Notre Dame (9-8) with a 14-5 record as the Big South Conference
champion. It will be the first-ever meeting between the Irish and the Panthers, who
currently have won 10 games in a row dating back to a tight 10-9 loss to Duke on
April 2. Those Blue Devils bring a 9-7 record to Notre Dame for their first round
matchup with Stanford. Notre Dame and Duke played each other just a few weeks ago
with the Irish taking a 12-10 decision over the Blue Devils at Arlotta Stadium. The
Cardinal, 14-4 on the year, are also not strangers to Arlotta Stadium, having played
on that field March 29, coming away with a narrow 11-10 win over the Irish.
