NOTRE DAME, Ind. – The Notre Dame women’s swimming and diving team will play host to the Shamrock Invitational this weekend at the Rolfs Aquatic Center. The two-day event begins 6:00 p.m. (ET) Friday evening followed by a pair of sessions (10:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.) on Saturday.

Notre Dame welcomes Iowa, Denver, Northwestern and Ohio State in the championship-format meet, which will be scored as a dual meet between each of the participating teams. Live results will be available at UND.com.

Notre Dame’s seniors will be honored before Saturday’s evening session.

In their only action of the 2011 slate, the Irish fell in dual meet action against Northwestern and Michigan. The Irish are 2-5 overall.

At the 2010 edition of the Shamrock Invitational, Notre Dame handed defeats to both Denver (275-94) and Iowa (260-110).
