Volleyball Meet The Freshmen: Meg Morningstar

Sept. 24, 2015

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.
