NOTRE DAME RECRUITS
Fighting Irish men sign six to letters of intent
NOTRE DAME, Ind. -- The Notre Dame menís team has signed six players for next season, the school announced Thursday.
Defender Mitch MacDonald (Troy, Mich.) will be joined by goalkeeper Keagan McLaughlin (Zanesville, Ohio), midfielders Aiden McFadden (West Chester, Pa.) and Townsend Meyer (San Diego, Calif.), forward Simon Roennecke (Pleasant Ridge, Mich.), and forward/midfielder Paul Rothrock (Seattle, Wash.).
"This is a good class, adding at goalkeeper, defender, midfielder and forward," Notre Dame coach Bobby Clark said. "It's a very hard-working group, and even though many of them are now playing academy we all saw them while playing for non-academy teams and at camp. I'm very excited about this class. It's filled with players we've really liked that we've watched over a number of years, and we're very comfortable with them.
"As I always say, I'll be able to tell you in three years' time just how good of a class it is. We've got a very committed group of players that love soccer, and they will carry on and maintain the traditions of Notre Dame soccer."
