It seems like no matter where Courtney Ingersoll goes, she
always seems to run into Kyle Baumgartner.
"Me and Kyle have been friends since 7th grade,"
Ingersoll said. " We grew up in the same area, we were rivals in high school,

Their playing days were over, but soon enough, they found
themselves teaming up yet again.

Baumgartner. "She was in charge of some

Baumgartner joined Ingersoll as an assistant with the Eagles.
"There's really no negative to it," Baumgartner said. "If you get to do it with somebody that you're
incredibly close with, it makes it that much more special."
"It allows our kids
to talk about to (the players) about what has to be done at the college game,"
said Notre Dame coach Travis Galloway. "It
shows our kids what kind of work ethic you have to have to be successful."
When it comes to coaching, both are learning as they go, and

"It's been a great experience," said Ingersoll. "It's
more than just a friendship now, it's co-workers. It's cool, though, we have a level of trust
