The Notre Dame women’s basketball team sported pink as they took to the court at the Purcell Pavilion on Saturday.
But pink was not the only color in the stadium, there was a little green too courtesy of the first Notre Dame women’s basketball team from the early 1970s. The women from the university’s original club team that led to varsity status made an appearance at the Purcell.
The lead scorer from the original Lady Irish team, Lynn Mertensotto, is a breast cancer survivor herself, making Saturday an extra special day for her to be at the game with some of her closest and oldest friends.
