Doyle, Connolly part of Notre Dame class

Gilman attackman Conor Doyle and St. Mary's attackman Logan Connolly are among the 10-student class joining the Notre Dame program beginning in the 2012 season. Doyle, who had 32goals and 33 assists as a senior, was the 2011 Baltimore Sun Lacrosse Player of the Year and an Under Armour and US Lacrosse All-American. "I really think he's coming into his own as a player in every way," coach Kevin Corrigan said. Connolly, a team captain as a senior, had 62 goals and 73assists during his high school career and earned All-State honors his junior and senior seasons. "Logan is a terrific feeder and has a great sense for the game," Corrigan said. The rest of the class is goalie Conor Kelly (another Under Armour All-American); midfielders Will Corrigan, William Gilmartin, Connor McCollough, Jack Near Jr. and Nick Ossello; attackman Kyle Runyon; and defenseman/long-stick midfielder Henry Williams.
