Sept. 9, 2002

The Notre Dame – Northwestern volleyball match scheduled for Friday, Sept. 13, during the 2002 Golden Dome Invitational, has been moved ahead 15 minutes to start at 3:45 p.m.

Notre Dame volleyball fans who attend the Irish-Wildcat match will be allowed to stay in their seat for the Notre Dame football pep rally, which will begin at 6:30 p.m. (though activities for the pep rally begin around 5:30 p.m.).

Fans of both volleyball and football making the trip to campus this weekend will have ample opportunities to catch the Irish volleyball team in action. In addition to the Northwestern match on Friday night before the pep rally, Notre Dame will face Loyola College on Saturday morning before the Notre Dame – Michigan football game, then wrap up the Golden Dome Invitational with a match against #10 Pepperdine on Saturday evening at 7 p.m. after the football game.

During the Notre Dame matches on Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, two lucky fans attending the Irish matches will win tickets to the Notre Dame – Michigan football game (one of the toughest tickets on the home football schedule this season).

More information on volleyball promotions will be available later this week.
