Brindock's training began June 26 at Ohio Dominican University in Columbus, while the matches will be held June 30 to July 4 during the USA Volleyball Girls' Junior National Championships (GJNC) at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.

During the pre-tournament training session, the 48 athletes will be divided into four teams of 12 players that will play one match per day during the GJNC. All matches will be A2 competing against each other in a round-robin format followed by a semifinal and final round.

Brindock will be sharing her experiences with Irish UNDerground throughout the event ...

July 4

Greetings Irish fans and Happy 4th! Well, my time in Columbus has now come to a close. This experience has been one that I will never forget. I will be able to take what I have learned and put it to great use for the Irish!

Today finished up the tournament. Last night, we went up against the Gold team and we had a hard loss in five games. It was a great match, with high intensity volleyball, but we just did not finish on top. With that said, we played today against team Blue. We fought hard, and we played well, but we ended short losing in five. We were always right there, with the opportunity to win, but it did not work out.

My time with the National A2 team has been so enjoyable! I have met many girls, and I know I will stay in touch with a couple of them. Those who were strangers to me when I started this camp are now good friends as I leave.

I have said each time that this entire opportunity has made me realize how truly blessed I am. The memories that I will take away from this will stay with me always. I know I improved my game with the ten days I have spent here, but most importantly, I had fun doing it! I smiled a lot and I enjoyed myself, on and off the court, and I know if I did that, this experience was totally worth it.

Now that my time playing with USA is over, for now, I am all about the Fighting Irish! Watch out, because NDVB 2012 is ready to take on anything that comes our way! We will be strong, I have no doubt.

Take care my Irish fans. Come support Notre Dame volleyball this year! Always remember, JUST BELIEVE, and GO IRISH!
