Notre Dame's Angie Harris Named Big East Volleyball Player of the Week

NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Notre Dame senior outside hitter Angie Harris (Fort Wayne, Ind,.) has been named the BIG EAST volleyball player of the week after an impressive showing in last weekend's Shamrock Invitational, held at Notre Dame's Joyce Center Arena.

Harris--who saw her first action for Notre Dame in the '97 opener after missing the final 13 matches in 1996 due to arthroscopic knee surgery--tied an Irish record by recording 20-plus kills in three consecutive matches over the weekend, as Notre Dame defeated Louisville (3-1) and Oral Roberts (3-2) before falling to #18 Wisconsin (1-3) in the tournament's championship match. Each of the teams in the Shamrock Invitational were 1996 NCAA Tournament participants.

The 6-1 Harris totaled 71 kills in the three matches (averaging 5.46/gm over 13 games), including a career-best 27 in the seesaw match with Oral Roberts. Her 23 kills against Louisville included a timely 10 kills in the decisive fourth game. She capped the weekend with 21 kills against Wisconsin en route to a spot on the seven-player all-tournament team.

Harris' totals over the three matches also included a team-best 38 digs (2.92/gm), nine blocks and four service aces. She hit .281 for the tournament, including a .388 effort against Louisville that represents the second-best hitting percentage of her career in a four-game match.

Harris will attempt to break the Irish record for consecutive 20-plus kill matches when Notre Dame faces Gonzaga at the Spikeoff Spokane on Sept. 5. Current senior hitter Jaimie Lee is the only previous Notre Dame player to post 20-plus kills in three consecutive matches, doing so at the 1995 Big Four Classic (held that year at the Indiana University).
