NOTRE DAME, Ind. - The University of Notre Dame men's lacrosse team earned the No. 7 national seed and will host Johns Hopkins in the first round of the 2019 NCAA Men's Lacrosse Championship on Sunday, May 12.

The game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. ET at Arlotta Stadium and it will be telecast live on ESPNU.

Notre Dame (8-6) went to its third straight Atlantic Coast Conference Championship final by defeating No. 3 Duke 12-10 in the semifinal before falling to top-seeded Virginia in the title game. Johns Hopkins went 8-7 in the regular season and fell to No. 1 Penn State in overtime in the Big Ten title game.

The Irish and Blue Jays have played five times in program history, all coming in the NCAA Championships.
