    Judi Garman Classic - Tournament Central

    NOTRE DAME, Ind. - There will be little time for rest and relaxation this Spring Break for the Notre Dame softball team as the Irish continue their eight-game West Coast trip at the Judi Garman Classic (March 16-19) in Fullerton, Calif.

    The upcoming six games at the event hosted by Cal State Fullerton will feature matchups versus four top 25 programs.

    Coming off a recent doubleheader sweep at Cal Poly and a 3-2 showing at the Diamond 9 Citrus Classic two weeks ago in Orlando, Fla., Notre Dame is receiving votes in the latest NFCA and USA Softball top 25 polls.
