When the Notre Dame volleyball team travels to Lincoln, Neb. next week, the academic semester will be just three days old, but the Irish will already be facing their first tough test of the year.
Head coach Debbie Brown’s team begins the season with a visit to the Cornhusker State for a trio of matches, starting on Aug. 24 against UCLA, the defending national champions.
On Saturday, they will play Saint Louis, before making the short trip from Lincoln to Omaha for a Sunday meeting with Nebraska.
Fighting Irish Digital Media went inside practice at the Rolfs Sports Recreation Center and spoke with junior Andrea McHugh, senior Marie Roof, junior Maggie Brindock, freshman Taylor Morey and Coach Brown about the challenge of kicking off the 2012 campaign against the top-ranked Bruins.
