    Julie Sabacinski pairs up with Brittney Sanders for doubles play.

    Notre Dame has seen its fair share of student-athlete siblings over the years. Julie and Kenny Sabacinski are another one of those pairs.

    "The Racqueteers" - Sam Hyder, Katie Ferrello, Chris Hebig, Will Murray, and Max Cruz.

    Mirriam-Webster’s dictionary defines “racketeer” as “one who obtains money by an illegal enterprise usually involving intimidation.” I define “racqueteer” as “one who helps a tennis player/team obtain victories by an entertaining enterprise involving team-support and/or opponent-intimidation.” Notre Dame women’s tennis has their own racqueteers. They’ve been attending home matches at the Eck Tennis Pavilion since the match…

    Last weekend, men’s tennis traveled to Norman, Okla. to play Harvard and Memphis. “Last weekend was certainly a tale of different days,” associate head coach Ryan Sachire said. “All of us were disappointed with the result on Saturday against Harvard, not simply because we lost, but rather how we competed during certain situations in the…

    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…
