NOTRE DAME, Ind. - University of Notre Dame women's lacrosse student-athletes Jaimie Morrison and Barbara Sullivan have been named to the BIG EAST's Weekly Honor Roll after helping the Irish to a 2-0 week, the league office announced Monday.

Morrison turned in a phenomenal performance for the Irish in their thrilling 16-15, double overtime win at Louisville Friday night. The Yorktown Heights, N.Y., native found the back of the net four times and dished out five assists to total nine points. The nine points puts her in a tie for third place in school history for points in a game and also puts her in a tie for second for points in a road game.

Sullivan continued her All-America-caliber season with two more dominating performances this weekend. In the 16-15 win over the Cardinals, the Garden City, N.Y., native had two ground balls, seven draw controls and three caused turnovers. In a 13-6 victory at Cincinnati, Sullivan added five ground balls, three draw controls and three caused turnovers.

The sophomore continues to remain high in conference national categories. She is ranked first in the BIG EAST and second in the country in ground balls per game (3.60), second in the league and 10th in the country in caused turnovers per game (2.00) and 31st in the nation in draw controls per game (3.80).  

Notre Dame (10-0, 4-0 BIG EAST) is off to a fantastic start to the 2013 season, as they are now tied for the best start to a season for overall wins and BIG EAST victories. The 2004 squad began 10-0 and the 2002 team opened league play at 4-0.

Morrison and Sullivan and the rest of their Irish teammates turn to a huge weekend at Arlotta Stadium. No. 5/6 Notre Dame welcomes in No. 17/18 Loyola (5-6) at 7 p.m. Friday, before playing host to No. 8/8 Georgetown at 2 p.m. Sunday. Both games will be available to fans through live stats and UND.com's free live broadcast.
