UND Night (June 11th), Senior Alumni Lunch, Fr. Joe’s

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

Well, it’s another eventful week for Irish sports — your #1 seeded Men’s Lacrosse team (with three local students) came back from a first half deficit to beat Towson 12-10 and advance to the Denver round next Saturday. Also, Everett Golson announced his intention to transfer, putting an early end to what would have been an ongoing discussion about who would be Notre Dame’s starter in the 2015 season. Finally, the Softball team (also with three local students) was seeded #16 in the NCAA tournament, and will play at home on Friday at 2pm local time. Good luck to all these outstanding athletes!

While it’s still fairly quiet on the club calendar in May, there’s a bunch of great events coming up in June, so read on for those. Also check your email boxes in the next week for the Club’s newsletter, where we’ll have more information about our upcoming events, and an introduction to our visiting Summer Service students. For all of our students who just wrapped up finals on Friday, especially for those graduating this coming week, the club hopes you have a great summer and we hope to see you at some of our events!

Fr. Ted Requiem Mass, ND vs. Wichita State Game Watch, Crew Classic, Sr. Alumni Luncheon

Hello San Diego Notre Dame Family:

It was great to see some of you at the NDP happy hour last Thursday. Thanks to Bekki for organizing it, and to Mark for having us over to his restaurant. Bekki posted a photo at our Facebook page if you’d like to check out some of the attendees. We have a huge week of activities ahead, so there are many chances to link up with your local ND family and remember a great leader, watch our athletes compete at the highest levels, and simply socialize with your local ND family.

While I’m on the topic of athletes, I’d also like to plug a fundraiser for the ND Softball team, which includes three athletes from San Diego: Senior Infielder Katey Haus, Sophomore Pitcher Rachel Nasland, and Freshman Infielder/Pitcher Sara White. To excerpt a letter from Sara:

Notre Dame softball, is working very hard to support the fight against pediatric leukemia. Every year, we put on a huge fundraising event called Trivia Night where families and businesses sponsor tables and rounds to help us fund-raise. I need to have 4 total sponsors by April 1st…Types of sponsorship: A Round of Trivia- $250; A Table Sponsorship- $100; All proceeds go to help children and families of Memorial Hospital who are fighting cancer.

If you’d like to help Sara and/or her teammates, send me a note at webmaster@ndsandiego.org and I’ll connect you, or you can use the event flyer.
