Notre Dame, Ind. – The Notre Dame women’s lacrosse team will close out its fall schedule on Sunday, Nov. 4 when the Irish travel to Evanston, Ill., to face the United States Developmental Team in a 10:00 a.m. game at Northwestern University.
The game versus the U.S. Team has extra meaning as one of Notre Dame’s top players, midfielder Kathryn Lam (Sr., Plainsboro, N.J.), will play for the United States Deveopmental Team.
“This is an extra special game for us since its against top competition and will feature one of our top players, Kathryn Lam, who is the first Notre Dame women’s lacrosse player to make that team,” said head coach Tracy Coyne.
During the fall, the Irish have gone 3-0 with wins over Northwestern, Duquesne and last Friday’s (Oct. 26) overtime win at Lafayette. In that game, Danielle Shearer (Jr., Hempstead, Md.) paced the Irish with four goals, including the game winner in the first overtime period.
Notre Dame got three goals from Alissa Moser (Sr., North Wales, Pa.) and two goals each from Meredith Simon (So., Flemington, N.J.) and Kassen Delano (So., Alexandria, Va.) in the win. Goalkeeper Jen White (Jr., Annapolis, Md.) made nine saves to protect the victory.

Notre Dame tied Rutgers (3-3) and Delaware (4-4) while taking wins versus Drexel (6-2), the University of Pennsylvania (4-3) and the College of New Jersey (7-1).
