The University of Notre Dame volleyball program welcomed seven newcomers to the team in August to gear up for the 2015 season. The group comes to the Irish from California, Illinois, Indiana, Pennsylvania and Virginia and covers every position on the court.
In a Q&A series that was popular last year, it’s time for Irish fans to meet the group and learn a little more about them as the Irish continue ACC play at Purcell Pavilion this weekend (Boston College – 7 p.m. ET Friday & Syracuse – 12 p.m. ET Sunday).
