The Challenges of Midterm Week

Sep 28, 2012, 3:35 PM EDT

The football team is on a bye week, but it’s a very busy time of year at Notre Dame. The volleyball squad got out to a nice start in BIG EAST play with a pair of road wins last weekend.

Upon their return to South Bend, the Irish jumped right into a busy schedule with many midterm exams, papers and projects getting underway over the last several days.

Fighting Irish Digital Media caught up with head coach Debbie Brown, outside hitter Andrea McHugh, setter Maggie Brindock and middle blocker Andie Olsen about the season so far, and the challenges of balancing it with the academic rigors of the fall semester.

The Irish are back at Purcell Pavilion this weekend, with home matches against Marquette and Syracuse on Saturday and Sunday. Both begin at 2:00 pm ET, and will be carried live on
