The 2012-13 season saw the crowning of the Irish as BIG EAST Champions for the ninth time, but everything will change this year as Notre Dame moves to the highly competitive Atlantic Coast Conference. Although the team fell in the first round of the NCAA Championship last year, with many veteran players returning (including the No. 1 and No. 2 singles players), newly-named head coach Ryan Sachire has high hopes for this season.
Last year, the Irish went 19-8 on the season, beating nine nationally ranked foes. The team took down St. John’s, Marquette and 50th-ranked Louisville to win the BIG EAST title before falling to 37th-ranked University of Washington in the first round to finish the season ranked 28th in the country.
