Big East champs

Jessica Orlando | Tuesday, February 21, 2012

Congratulations to the members of Notre Dame Men’s swimming and diving team on your Big East Championships. You came into Da Burgh and left no question about who the best team is in the Big East. You are the hardest working group of people I have ever met. I am so happy for all of you.

The amount of time and effort this team put into the season is inspiring. I cannot begin to describe the sense of pride and happiness I felt for this team two weeks ago and all last week. Each member of the team contributed to this win and gave everything they had to win the conference title, and they did this with class and sophistication. Fans, parents and athletes from other teams told me they were rooting for you guys. I think this speaks volumes about your character.

Again, I could not be more proud. Thank you so much for making me feel welcome. I loved working with you guys and wish you all the best of luck in the future.

Your Manager,

Jessica Orlando
