BRIDGEPORT, Pa. -- Ali Durkin (Sr., Chicago, Ill./St. Ignatius) of the University of Notre Dame paced the Irish to a fifth consecutive Midwest Division Championship to claim the April 18 Midwest Division Player of the Week award.
Durkin led Notre Dame with 10 goals over the course of the team's three games at the championship hosted by Ohio University in Athens, Ohio. Facing arch-rival Miami University (Ohio) in the title game, she tallied four goals, two ejections drawn and three five-meter penalties drawn in a 13-3 victory.
Durkin and the Irish will not have to travel far for the 2011 National Collegiate Club Championship as the program will host the title tournament on May 6-8 in South Bend, Indiana.
