Notre Dame is a prestigious university that was established in November of 1842. This honorary school is a university composed of religious novitiates, grade schooling, and a manual labor school. It is also purely well known for its excellent programs in humanities including but not limited to, poetry philosophy, foreign languages, and various forms of music appreciation. In addition to their reputable academics, Notre Dame is also well known for their men’s lacrosse team.

Their men’s lacrosse program really took off around in 1996 after a strong campaign presented in ’95. After making lacrosse history for being the first western lacrosse team to win a first round NCAA tournament game, Head coach, Kevin Corrigan, recommended that his team focus on how to improve from last seasons mistakes in order to maintain a high level of competition. Boasting about winning one year was just going to make them overly confident and prone to mistakes. In 1996,they continued to be stellar on the road maintaining a 7-1 record, but still struggled at home against some other highly competitive teams.

Now lets fast forward to the present year 2015. The Notre Dame men’s lacrosse team continues to bring the heat and finish another season strong. This team finished 12-3 during the 2015 season, making it all the way to the semi-finals. However they fell short of another championship after losing to Denver by a marginal difference of one point. After a strong year for the Notre Dame lacrosse team, eight players were named to the ACC all academic team. Those players are Jim Marlatt, Sergio Perkovic (made it for the second time in a row), Will Corrigan, Edwin Glazener, Matt Landis, Eddy Lubowicki, Jack Near, and John Sexton.
