The 2023 season was a wildly successful one for Holy Cross tennis. Both its men’s and women’s teams had been successful over the previous few seasons, but a memorable postseason run remained elusive. That all changed a year ago, when both teams emerged victorious in the CCAC Tournament, sending them to nationals for the first time in program history.

Connor “Hound” Hinkes def. Jack “Da Cake” Kelly
The most annoying thing about being a second-semester senior is that you are forced to think about the future. It’s a fairly steep price to pay for everything you get to do with friends and (at least in my experience) having a lighter course load than in the past. It’s not like I haven’t done plenty of this in the past, but now it’s a central theme in everything I’m involved in — including, of course, The Observer.
Notre Dame baseball spent its offseason working on the issues that plagued the team throughout its inconsistent 2023 season, one that ended short of the NCAA Tournament one year after the team reached the College World Series. They felt like they were in good position entering the new campaign, but ultimately, all that matters is the results.
The 94th Annual Bengal Bouts Tournament commenced Thursday at Notre Dame’s Dahnke Ballroom. Here's an overview of the quarterfinal results from Ring B.
Notre Dame's quest for back-to-back national championships in men's lacrosse couldn't have gotten off to a better start. The Irish improved to 4-0 all-time against Cleveland State and won their 22nd straight season opener by dispatching the Vikings 25-3.
For the first time this season, Notre Dame men’s basketball has a conference winning streak.
The last few years of Saint Mary's tennis were mostly good but not great. The team has finished no farther than four games from .500 every season from 2017-2022. Maybe they could've built on a promising 5-2 start in 2020 if COVID-19 didn't wipe out the rest of the season.
The Notre Dame men's and women's tennis teams continued their non-conference schedules over the weekend. The women had one match, joining the hockey team in Madison, Wisconsin, to take on the No. 25 Badgers. Meanwhile, the men first traveled to face Michigan on Friday, then returned home to take on Auburn and Toledo on Saturday.
After an offseason reset, the newest iteration of Notre Dame softball began its 2024 season this weekend at the NFCA Leadoff Classic in Clearwater, Florida. The Irish split two games on Friday and did the same on Saturday. They finished on Sunday with another victory to bring them to 3-2 after their first weekend of play.
“It was great to get all the way there and it was something that that not just our team celebrated but I think the last 35 years of Notre Dame lacrosse, the last 45 years of Notre Dame lacrosse, we're celebrating together. So that was terrific.”
‘We're all working together to make ourselves the best boxers possible’: Nicholas Buhay discusses leading Bengal Bouts
Nicholas Buhay's sophomore year was a big one for his involvement in Bengal Bouts. For starters, it was his first chance to actually compete in the tournament after COVID-19 limited the club to training and practice spars in 2020-21. But that was also the year when he was approached about being a captain in the club. Despite having known about Bengal Bouts since he was in high school, stepping into a leadership position in Notre Dame's largest student club wasn't something he'd thought about doing.
After over two months of work in preparation, Notre Dame women’s golf returned to competition this week. The Irish left the surprisingly mild temperatures of this early February in South Bend behind to travel to the FAU Paradise Invitational at the Osprey Point Golf Course in Boca Raton, Florida.
To be the best, you have to beat the best. The Duke Blue Devils aren't quite at the top of the men's college basketball world, but they're close at No. 9 in the AP Poll. Beating them wouldn't automatically turn around Notre Dame's men's basketball season. At 2-9 in the ACC, the growing pains expected for the Irish this season have certainly been prevalent. But a victory against Duke, on the road in front of a raucous Cameron Indoor Stadium crowd, would just about make head coach Micah Shrewsberry's first year as head coach a success all on its own.
Saturday's game against Kalamazoo was one step forward and one step back for Saint Mary's basketball. After struggling to score in the latter half of January, the team delivered a strong offensive performance, putting up 70 points on the Hornets. However, the Belles' defense wasn't able to hold Kalamazoo down, with the Hornets defending their home court in a 80-70 win.
This weekend marked the 38th annual Flyin’ Irish Basketball Tournament, a competition hosted by Notre Dame’s Air Force ROTC dating back to 1985. What began as a fun but unremarkable event has transformed into the largest Cadet-run event in the country, according to junior Miles Roberts, who is part of the tournament’s public affairs section.
Early on in Saturday’s showdown between Notre Dame and Pitt, the Irish had a couple of things going for them. The Irish got Panthers big man Carlton Carrington into some early foul trouble, sending him to the bench with two fouls less than 10 minutes into the night. They also forced Pitt into missing its first nine three-pointers, allowing the Irish to jump out to an early 19-12 lead.
The college golf schedule is different than just about any other sport in the NCAA. Both the Notre Dame men’s and women’s golf teams completed the first half of their 10-event regular season in the fall semester. Over three months after their final competition of 2023, the teams will return to the links in February.
Holy Cross basketball returned to the hardwood Wednesday with both the men's and women's teams hosting Indiana Northwest. The women's team earned its second straight victory, winning 84-60. The score of the men's game was similar. But this time, the Saints found themselves on the wrong end of the ledger, falling 83-65.
After three straight ugly showings on offense, Saint Mary's delivered a better performance to begin a three-game road stretch on Wednesday night. However, it still wasn't enough to take down a high-level opponent, as No. 4 Hope pulled away in the middle quarters, beating the Belles 79-51.
