    Student-Athletes Volunteer In Alabama

    | No Comments | No TrackBacks
    ndmurphbama.jpg AL.com - A group of University of Notre Dame student-athletes and administrators wrapped up a week of volunteering in tornado relief Thursday on a fall break service trip organized by Notre Dame and the University of Alabama.

    The trip, called Fight for Tide, brought 24 students and six administrators to Tuscaloosa to work in collaboration with Project Team Up, an initiative to rebuild communities partnered with Nick Saban's foundation Nick's Kids.

    Students representing the Notre Dame baseball, cross country, cheerleading, fencing, men's golf, women's lacrosse, rowing and track and field teams were selected for the trip based on essays they wrote.

    Sarah Smith, program coordinator for student athlete welfare and development at Notre Dame, said the idea to help Tuscaloosa began with a former Notre Dame employee who currently works in the ticket office at Alabama. He emailed the athletics office at Notre Dame and asked them to collect relief supplies that Alabama would pay to ship.

    Smith, who is originally from a town an hour away from Joplin, Missouri, began to come up with an idea of a service trip when students started talking over the summer about going to down to Tuscaloosa to help.

    "I just kind of ran with the idea and started calling people to see if it would be a possibility, and people started wanting to support it and make it happen," Smith said.

    After arriving Saturday, the group has worked at two sites in Alberta City, clearing storm debris on lots where new houses are planned to be built. They also met with Alabama athletics director Mal Moore and went on the field at Bryant-Denny Stadium, had dinner with Notre Dame's Alabama alumni club at Dreamland, attended Mass with students at the St. Francis of Assisi Parish on the Alabama campus and toured the baseball and softball facilities.

    On Thursday, at a site just off University Boulevard on 21st Avenue East, Alabama softball coach Patrick Murphy and several players joined the group from Notre Dame in clearing debris from destroyed houses and carrying limbs to the street.

    Notre Dame baseball player Tommy Chase said the experience changed his perspective on the important things in life.

    "I look at this as a great opportunity to help where there's a need," Chase said. "We get caught up at school doing a lot things for ourselves, whether it's in sports or in the classroom. Those are all great things, but it's revolved around our own needs and goals. Being able to come down here and help others is really important for my own personal development, but also I want to hopefully inspire this community in some way."

    Notre Dame sophomore cheerleader Erin Garfield took time away from her team to travel to Tuscaloosa because the fall break gave her time to join the service trip. On Saturday night, she'll be cheering on the sidelines as the Irish face USC in South Bend.

    "It's just been a great experience all around, hearing all these stories from people who experienced the tornado and getting to meet all these amazing people, Garfield said.

    Alabama sophomore softball player Ryan Iamurri said she was glad to share the experience of volunteering in Alberta City with the students from Notre Dame.

    "When you live here, you kind of get back in your normal routine, and if you don't cross this bridge (to Alberta), you forget what it's like," Iamurri said."It was so nice of them because we realize there's still so much more to do. To come out here with them is special."
    mlaxncaa.jpg The NCAA Division I Men's Lacrosse Committee has selected Indianapolis, Ind., and College Park, Md., to serve as hosts for the 2013 Division I Men's Lacrosse Quarterfinals. The NCAA and Indiana Sports Corp jointly made the announcement at its annual meeting on Tuesday.

    Notre Dame and the Indiana Sports Corporation will host quarterfinal match-ups in Lucas Oil Stadium May 19, while the University of Maryland will host games at Capital One Field at Byrd Stadium on May 18.

    "We are extremely pleased to bring this marquee event to Indianapolis," said Susan Williams, Indiana Sports Corp president. "Having the NCAA headquartered in Indianapolis and their commitment to showcase Indianapolis by awarding our experienced team with events of this magnitude continues to return huge dividends.

    "Lacrosse is obviously a growing sport in our city and our state, and this announcement should excite a very passionate lacrosse community."

    Indianapolis becomes the first site not along the east coast to be awarded pre-determined games of the NCAA Division I Men's Lacrosse Championship. The semifinals and championship game of the 2013 NCAA Division I Men's Lacrosse Championships will be held at Philadelphia's Lincoln Financial Field (May 25-27).

    "2013 will be an exciting year in men's lacrosse as we take one of the quarterfinals to a newer grassroots area in the Midwest, and we return one to the state of Maryland, a place widely known for lacrosse," said Tony Seaman, Division I Men's Lacrosse Committee chair and special advisor to the director of athletics at Towson University.

    "The committee felt moving one of the quarterfinals to a different geographic part of the country would aide in growing the sport of lacrosse, which is one of our most important goals. Both quarterfinal sites will play the games in top-notch facilities, and have staffs that are experienced and well-equipped for putting on a great championship event for all involved. We're looking forward to what is sure to be a memorable lacrosse weekend in both College Park and Indianapolis in 2013."
