In her third year in an Irish uniform, Notre Dame setter Maggie Brindock has settled into a comfortable role. Prior to the season, she was voted as one of three Notre Dame captains and has embraced a leadership position both on and off the court. Brindock was featured this past week in The Observer, Notre Dame’s independent student newspaper, highlighting her impact on the team and eventual decision to attend Notre Dame.
It is such an honor knowing all my teammates and coaches believe I can take on this job,” Brindock said. “It is just a great honor knowing I can lead this team and have a big impact on them.
Brindock certainly has had an impact this season, compiling 486 assists to go along with 118 digs. She also sealed last weekend’s upset over then No. 10 Louisville with the final kill in the fifth set that wrapped up Notre Dame’s remarkable come-from-behind victory on the road. The Irish will look to continue their momentous start to BIG EAST conference play Saturday against Marquette and Sunday against Syracuse at Purcell Pavilion. Each game will begin at 2 p.m. EST and will be streamed live via und.com.
