The Fighting Irish were a bit inconsistent last year, but the roster had enough juice to beat eventual national champion Florida State in an ACC game in late April. Senior outfielder Ali Wester hit .365 last year and added 15 stolen bases; sophomore Abby Sweet had a strong debut season as she hit .333 with team-high totals of 38 runs, 13 doubles and 22 HBPs. Sophomore pitcher Alexis Holloway looked every bit the star after a lauded high school career, as she went 22-15 with a 2.55 ERA and 179 strikeouts in 228 innings. Head coach Deanna Gumpf has 702 victories in her 17 seasons at Notre Dame.
