[ELITE 8]The trio of Kerri Hanks, Brittany Bock and Michele Weissenhofer struggled for a good part of the 2007 season, but they have certainly lived up to their reputation as the nation's premier forward trio in the NCAA Division I Women's Tournament.

Hanks, Bock and Weissenhofer -- who now have combined for 130 career goals and 97 assists -- each scored for Notre Dame, which moved into the semifinals for the ninth time in the last 14 years with a 3-2 win over Duke Friday night.

The Irish claimed a 2-0 lead early in the second half only to see the Blue Devils  tie the game with a pair of goals in a span of five minutes. But Hanks won the game with her 14th goal of the season and 64th in three seasons at Notre Dame.

"I don't know that we've had any other team in the history of this program that has struggled with the won-loss results so much early in the season and regrouped in this fashion, making it all the way back to the College Cup for the semifinals," said Notre Dame coach Randy Waldrum. "Back in mid-September when we were 3-4-1, we basically sat down with the girls and told them that we could not lose any more games. We gave away too many games early in the season. To come back and run off the stretch we have is a great feeling. It was fitting that Duke came back and tied it, and then you saw our character to come back and win it."
