The Wildcats’ lacrosse team suffered a 15-3 defeat at the hands of Notre Dame in the second round of the NCAA Tournament. The loss eliminated Northwestern and ended its season in South Bend, Indiana.

Notre Dame got out to an early 4-goal lead in just over 10 minutes of game time, which would ultimately prove too big of a lead for NU to overcome. Fighting Irish attackers Cortney Fortunato and Grace Muller led the way with 4 goals apiece.

For the Cats, Selena Lasota, Christina Esposito and Kaleigh Craig each scored one goal. Freshman goalie Mallory Weisse made 10 saves.

NU ends the season at 11-10.
