They Have Never Been 9 - 0 @ Notre Dame!

The Notre Dame women's softball team is off to the best start in school history!  The Irish are now 9 - 0 on the season after beating Marist and Liberty yesterday afternoon at the College of Charleston's Cougar Classic in Mount Pleasant, SC.  The win over Liberty was also the 900th win in the 23-year history of the women's softball program at Notre Dame!  The Irish will be back in action in Kissimmee, Florida this weekend -- for the Diamond 9 Citrus Classic.  A special thanks to ND GO IRISH regular contributor, Dr. Jim Clancy -- for making me aware of this story.  Here's a link to UND.COM's coverage of ND women's softball:
