  1. Cross Country/Track and Field: New Locker Rooms

    Nov 11, 2013, 1:47 PM EST

    Open area used for indoor ab workouts on cold day and as an impromptu dance floor.

    For the cross country and upcoming indoor track and field seasons this year, the teams were upgraded to a new home, just across the hall in the bowels of the JACC. During the summer, the rusted-out lockers were torn down and redone just in time for the fall season to commence. Now, with custom lockers…

    Notre Dame cross country and track and field standout Jeremy Rae spent the beginning of July in Kazan, Tatarstan, Russia, where he competed in the 1,500m run for his native Canada.

    Last weekend’s Alex Wilson Invitational saw some of the most outstanding performances for Notre Dame track this season. Not only did the team break four Notre Dame records, but Senior Rebecca Tracy also broke the meet and track records for the mile.

  4. March Madness: Busy Weekend for the Fighting Irish

    Mar 3, 2013, 7:19 PM EST

    Even if you were running as fast as the athletes in this photo, you probably weren't quick enough to catch all of this weekend's Fighting Irish athletics action.

    Thirteen Fighting Irish athletic teams took to the court, field, diamond, track, ice, pool and piste, in what was most definitely one of the busiest weekends of the year for Notre Dame athletics. On campus, the track & field programs competed in day two of the Alex Wilson Invitational, men’s lacrosse made its 2013 home…

  5. Tracy, Feeney Succeed at Meyo Invitational

    Feb 5, 2013, 9:44 AM EST

    Feeney's time in the 400m raised his school record after previously setting the standard (46.55) at the 2012 Alex Wilson Invitational.

    Track & field meets are full of energizing and exciting events, but none are quite as unique as the still, silent moments right before the gun goes off. There is a nervous energy that surrounds the runners and diffuses across the crowd as all anxiously anticipate the start. Then there is a loud crack, and…

  6. Meyo Mile: A Thrilling Four Minutes

    Feb 3, 2013, 3:37 PM EST

    Senior Rebecca Tracy won the women's Meyo Mile with a time of 4:39.52.

    At first glance, Loftus Sports Center resembles something of a circus during the annual Meyo Invitational track meet.  Continuous jumping events including pole vault, triple jump, and high jump all compete for a spectator’s attention with the sporadic running events. The whole scene gives the impression that a single event could not dominate the attention of…

    Feb 1, 2013, 8:59 AM EST

    Jeremy Rae won the 2012 Meyo Mile with a time of 3:59.31.

    It’s often said that “March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.” While I don’t know the origin of that particular phrase, I can tell you one thing – it was a wild month for the Fighting Irish. Here are some of the highlights. On Senior Night at Purcell Pavilion, Notre…

  12. A Table, Some Tennis, and a Handful of Athletes

    Oct 2, 2012, 12:04 PM EST

    A closer look at the bracket.

    Notre Dame sent a record number of athletes to the 2012 Summer Olympics. None of those athletes were there for table tennis; however, that all may change in the near future. Monday evening marked the First Annual Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC) Table Tennis Tournament. (That’s a mouthful.) Athletes from the football, hockey, men’s and women’s…

    While Notre Dame might not leave the BIG EAST Conference until the 2015-16 season, looking at the current Fighting Irish coaching staff reveals many ties to the university’s future home – the Atlantic Coast Conference. From Mike Brey to Tim Welsh, several Notre Dame head coaches got their start in ACC programs. Here’s a closer…

    After burning bright for 17 days, the flame was extinguished last night at Olympic Stadium. From Michael and Missy in the pool to Usain and Oscar on the track, it was an unforgettable ride. It’s impossible to put into words all that we have witnessed over the last two-plus weeks of world-class competition. And while…

    It’s sad to say, but there are only a couple days left in the 2012 Olympics. Here’s our latest update on the Irish in London.

    2009 NCAA Mid-East Track & Field Championships

    For 2009 graduate Mary Saxer (@SaxDefyGravity), dreams of representing the United States at the 2012 Summer Olympics came to a heartbreaking halt on Sunday in Eugene, Ore. Saxer tied Lacy Janson for third place with a top mark of 14 feet, 9 inches, but missed out on qualifying for London based on the tiebreaker rules.…

    Other teams better watch out. Notre Dame’s got a highly touted recruit arriving next year who’s ready to have an immediate impact from day one. This kid is talented, smart, and incredibly athletic. I think the Irish have got a great building block here. And before you guess, no, I’m not talking about incoming quarterback…
