    HONOLULU, Hawaii -- Notre Dame's softball team beat Loyola Marymount 9-1 and Tulsa 7-1 to finish 3-2 in round robin play at the Bank of Hawaii Classic in Honolulu, Hawaii. The Irish opened the tournament with a 3-1 loss to Tokyo on Thursday and then split a pair of games late Friday night, beating Chattanooga 9-7 before losing to host Hawaii 11-1. Notre Dame stands at 8-12 on the season and will wrap up the Bank of Hawaii Invitational on Sunday as the third seed in bracket play.

Offensively, Alkire hit 3-4 with two doubles, three RBI and a run scored. Jenn Giampaolo hit two hits, including a triple, and scored two runs. Amy Laboe and Lisa Tully also scored a pair of runs.
