    HOME FOR ONE: The Notre Dame volleyball team (12-5) brings its six-match winning streak back to the friendly confines of the Joyce Center this week for a challenging non-conference match against North Carolina on Oct. 17 (8:00 p.m.) ... UNC is 12-8, with five of its losses coming in five games ... the Irish then will head on their fourth of nine 1997 roadtrips, spending the fall break in the lone star state for matches at current #11 Texas and Houston ... after the Texas trip, Notre Dame will play seven straight BIG EAST conference matches heading into the BIG EAST Tournament (at Seton Hall, Nov. 22-23) ... 11 of Notre Dame's final 14 matches are on the road (plus two potential matches at the BIG EAST championship) ... the current six-match winning streak is the longest by an Irish squad since a six-match run from Oct. 20-Nov. 5, 1995 ... Notre Dame also opened the '95 season with eight straight wins before adding a second straight eight-match win streak that season ... the Irish were picked by the conference coaches to win their third straight BIG EAST title ... each of Notre Dame's five losses in 1997 have come against ranked opponents, including four currently in the top-12: #8 Wisconsin, #10 Washington State, #3 Florida and #12 Texas A&M (the Irish also have lost to current #19 Colorado) ... Notre Dame's non-conference schedule includes eight teams currently in the AVCA top 20 and seven in the top 12 (the above teams, plus #2 Long Beach State and #7 UC Santa Barbara) ... Notre Dame has not lost a match to a conference opponent during the tenure of head coach Debbie Brown (since 1991), going 67-0 over that stretch ... in two years of BIG EAST Conference play, the Irish have gone 30-0 against conference foes, with 25 of those wins coming in three games (Pittsburgh has forced the Irish to four games on three occasions while Villanova stretched the Irish to five games in '96 and Boston College took a game from Notre Dame last week).

    DEBBIE BROWN owns a record of 177-54 (.766) in six-plus seasons as head coach at Notre Dame and is 294-137 (.682) in 11-plus seasons as a Division I head coach ... Brown heads into this week's match against UNC just six wins shy of her 300th career win ... she has been named conference coach of the year in five of her first six seasons at Notre Dame and has led 10 of her 12 Division I teams to the NCAA Tournament ... Brown was head coach at Arizona State University from 1983-88 and served as a U.S. national team assistant before accepting the head coaching position at Notre Dame in 1991 ... her 1993 Notre Dame team advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals while the 1994 and '95 Irish squads advanced to the regional round of the NCAAs.

    LEFFERS CRANKS IT UP: Sophomore middle blocker Mary Leffers (Tampa, Fla.) is coming off the most impressive week of her young career, after leading the Irish to wins over Illinois State (3-2), at Boston College (3-1) and at Providence (3-0) ... Leffers led the Irish during the week with an impressive .533 hitting percentage on 75 swings while totaling 44 kills (4.00/gm), six aces (second on the team) and a team-best 10 blocks (three solos) ... Leffers keyed the victory over Illinois State, which was one of 42 teams to receive votes in last week's AVCA national poll ... the 6-4 middle blocker had 12 kills and no errors on her first 19 attempts vs. ISU en route to a .515 hitting pct. (19 kills, 2 err., 33 att.), the fourth- best hitting pct. ever in a five-game match by Notre Dame player (min. 20 att.) and best since 1992 ... Leffers also enjoyed one of the best serving matches of her career, totaling a career-best four aces vs. ISU while serving five straight points and converting a backrow kill in a critical comeback juncture during the rally-scoring fifth game ... the 19 kills were one shy of equaling her career high ... Leffers came back three days later to total 18 kills on .533 hitting at Boston College, after making just two errors on 30 attempts, while adding two aces ... she wrapped up the week with errorless hitting at Providence, totaling seven kills on 12 attempts while having a hand in five Irish blocks (one solo).

    BOYLAN NAMED BIG EAST ROOKIE OF THE WEEK: Notre Dame freshman setter Denise Boylan (Lisle, Ill.) was named the BIG EAST Conference volleyball rookie of the week for October 6-12 ... the 6-1 Boylan ran the Irish offense for 10 of 12 games during the week as Notre Dame extended its winning streak to six matches with victories over Illinois St. (3-2), at B.C. (3-1) and at Providence (3-0) ... the Irish hit a combined .331 for the week, with Boylan averaging 16.40 assists per game ... she was second among Irish players during the week with 34 digs, including a match and career-high 21 in the exciting win over ISU ... Boylan added five blocks assists, a service ace and six kills on .375 hitting for the week ... Boylan is the first freshman to open the season as Notre Dame's primary setter since 1988 ... she has helped the Irish surge to a BIG EAST-leading .260 season hitting pct., which would rank third in team history and second best by a Notre Dame squad since 1986 ... behind Boylan's setting and a veteran corps of hitters, the Notre Dame offense is running away with the BIG EAST offensive statistics .. the Irish are averaging .365 hitting in conference matches (Seton Hall is second, at .270) and 17.92 kills per game in league action (Villanova is next, at 16.00) ... Boylan leads the BIG EAST in overall matches with 12.11 assists/gm, which would rank fourth in Irish history ... she also ranks third on the '97 Irish squad with 133 digs (2.46/gm) while her other season totals include 36 kills on .247 hitting, 11 service aces (third on the team) and 28 blocks (two solos) ... four Irish players have been recognized by the BIG EAST in '97 during the seven weeks of conference awards ... the Irish opened the season with consecutive player of the week honors going to senior hitter Angie Harris, junior middle Lindsay Treadwell and senior hitter Jaimie Lee ... Boylan is one of three members of Notre Dame's freshman class who were named to the Volleyball magazine national Fab 50 (the others are frontline players Christi Girton and Jo Jameyson).

    ANGIE HARRIS NOTES: Harris has hit 20-plus kills in five matches during the 1997 season and 16 times in her career, tied with Zanette Bennett (1985-88) for 2nd in Irish history ('95 graduate Christy Peters is first, with 19) ... just four previous Notre Dame players have totaled more than five 20-plus kill matches in a season: Peters (9 in '94), Bennett (8 in '87), Alicia Turner (6 in '89) and Harris (6 in '95) ... Harris' three aces keep her Irish record career ace average at 0.627 per game (208/332) ... after a slow start to her season ace total, Harris has averaged 0.90 aces per game over the last six matches (17/19) ... Harris now is averaging .054 aces/gm for the '97 season, giving her the top four season ace averages in Irish history ... Harris' 23 kills give her 1,299 in her career and move her into a tie for 3rd all-time at Notre Dame with Jessica Fiebelkorn (1985-88), trailing only Bennett (1,471) and Christy Peters (1,683) ... Harris raised her season kill average to 4.12/gm (5th in Irish history).

    JAIMIE LEE NOTES: Lee has played in 97.5 percent of Notre Dame's matches during her four-year career (117/120), with two of those missed matches coming earlier this season when she was busy captaining the U.S. World University Games team ... Lee's 1,15 2 career kills rank 9th in Irish history, 10 behind Turner (1989-92), 19 behind Jenny Birkner (1993-96), 36 behind Mary Kay Waller (1985-88) and 41 behind Maureen Shea (1985-88) ... Lee's season kill average of 4.59/gm is exactly on pace with the Irish record set by Peters in 1994 ... Lee enters Friday's match at Boston College 39 digs shy of joining Turner, Fiebelkorn, Peters and Birkner as the 5th member of Notre Dame's 1,000-kill/1,000-dig club ... Lee's 15 digs vs. ISU moved her past Shea (959) into 7th on the Irish career digs list (961), just one behind former teammate Brett Hensel (1992-95).

    HARRIS AND LEE NOTES: Lee raised her career kill average to 2.98/gm, 4th in Irish history (Harris is first, at 3.91) ... Lee needs 48 more kills to make Harris and Lee the only Irish classmates to both reach 1,200 career kills ... Harris and Lee are on pace to become the first Irish teammates to both average 4.0-plus kills/gm in the same season (they already are the first with 3.9-plus, doing so in '95) ... Harris ranks 2nd in Irish history with 70 career double-digit kill matches (Peters is 1st, with 80) while Lee is 5th, with 52 ... Harris and Lee are the first Irish teammates to both total more than 50 double-digit kill matches in their careers ... Harris now ranks 4th in Irish history with 30 career double-doubles (matches with 10-plus kills and 10-plus digs) while Lee is 7th with 26, two behind Bennett and three behind Turner ... Harris remains 7th in Irish history for career dig avg. (2.59/gm) while Lee remains 9th at 2.49/gm. 8/30/97 #18 Wisconsin L, 1-3

    TAKING ON THE BEST: Notre Dame faced some of the nation's top individuals during the '96 season, including eight of the nation's top-30 hitting pct. leaders (three of the top nine) ... the Irish faced seven of the nation's top 25 leaders in kills/gm, including the nation's top three kill leaders: OSU's Vanessa Wouters (6.43 kills/gm), WSU's Sarah Silvernail (6.12) and Central Florida's Renata Menchikova (5.95) ... the Irish faced 14 players (including one twice) who ranked among the final top 30 nationally for at least one of the following categories: hitting pct. (9), kills per game (7) and blocks per game (7) ... in 10 matches vs. those players, the Irish held the noteworthy individuals below their season averages in all but six of the 23 total cases: PSU's Terry Zemaitis had 31 kills in four games vs. the Irish (above her avg. of 4.78 kills/gm), Illinois State's Andy Hardwick hit .385 vs. Notre Dame (her season avg. was .360), Hawaii's Angelica Ljundquist hit .600 in UH's first match vs. Notre Dame (above her avg. of .417), George Mason's Joy Kingsley-Ibeh had 34 kills in five games vs. the Irish (above her avg. of 4.95/gm), Silvernail hit .600 vs. the Irish (above her avg. of .405) and Wouters had 36 kills in five games at the Joyce Center (her avg. was 6.43 kills/gm) ... the below chart lists Notre Dame's opponents who were among the final NCAA leaders in hitting pct., kills and blocks, with their stats vs. the Irish listed to the right (bold numbers indicate the category in which the players were nationally ranked, with italics indicating a performance above their respective season average).

    NOTRE DAME TEAM NOTES: Notre Dame has averaged .358 team hitting and 1.81 aces per game during the current six-match winning streak ... the Irish return five starters and 11 total players from the 1996 BIG EAST championship team that went 22-12 and advanced to the second round of the NCAAs ... the Irish have eight players who are six feet or taller on the 1997 roster ... the Irish volleyball team averaged 27.5 wins per season from 1991-96 ... senior hitter Jaimie Lee leads all BIG EAST players during the 1997 season with 4.59 kills per game, which would best the Notre Dame record set by Christy Peters in 1994 ... senior hitter Angie Harris is second among BIG EAST players with 4.22 kills/gm, as Lee and Harris attempt to be the first Irish teammates to both average over four kills per game in the same season ... Harris ranks third in the conference with 0.55 service aces per game ... Denise Boylan--the first freshman to open the season as Notre Dame's primary setter since 1988--leads the BIG EAST with 12.11 assists per game ... sophomore middle Mary Leffers has surged atop the BIG EAST hitting pct. charts (.319) and ranks fourth in the conference with 1.22 blocks/gm.

    FEARSOME FOURSOME: Senior hitter Angie Harris and Jaimie Lee combined with starting middles Lindsay Treadwell and Mary Leffers as a potent hitting foursome in last week's action ... each of the four totaled between 36-54 kills during the week, with each hitting .291 or higher ... Harris had 54 kills (4.91/gm) on .377 hitting, followed by Lee (52, 4.73, .291), Leffers (44, 4.00, .533) and Treadwell (36, 3.27, .313) ... the four combined for a .369 hitting percentage over the course of the three matches.

    LEE NEARS 1,000-DIGs/1,000-KILLS CLUB: Senior hitter Jaimie Lee assisted on a block on Sept. 20 vs. Texas A&M to move into a tie for 10th on the Notre Dame career blocks list and, in the process, became the only player in the Notre Dame career top 10 for hitting percentage, kills, digs, aces, blocks and digs ... while Lee was reaching her milestone, freshman setter Denise Boylan bumped 1997 graduate Jenny Birkner from the same distinction ... Boylan's 28 assists at Colorado on Sept. 13 gave her 347 in her young career, moving her into 10th place on the Irish career assists list (a spot formally occupied by Birkner, who had 339; Boylan now is ninth with 654) ... Lee--who played middle blocker for Notre Dame as a freshman and served as a fill-in setter for the first half of 1996--holds down the following career rankings at Notre Dame: 6th in digs (985), 7th in hitting pct. (.265), 7th in kills (1,182), 8th in assists (729), 9th in aces (93) and 9th in blocks (258) ... Lee heads into the UNC match within range of several other players on the career kills list, standing six behind Mary Kay Waller (6th, 1985-88) and 41 behind Maureen Shea (5th, 1985-88)... she is just 40 digs behind Janelle Karlan (5th, 1990-93) and needs only 15 more digs to join Turner, Jessica Fiebelkorn (1989-92), Christy Peters (1991-94) and Birkner as the fifth Notre Dame player ever to total 1,000 kills and 1,000 digs in her career.

    17-MATCH CHECKUP: With more than half of the 30-match regular season in the books, several Irish players remain on pace for noteworthy statistical campaigns ... senior hitters Jaimie Lee (4.64 kills/gm) and Angie Harris (4.22 kpg) are on pace for the first and fifth-best kill averages in Irish history and could become the first Notre Dame teammates ever to average four-plus kills per game in the same season (Harris averaged 4.27 kpg as a sophomore) ... Lee and Harris already are the only Irish teammates ever to both average 3.9-kills per game in the same season (doing so in 1995) and each currently ranks among Notre Dame's top-four career kill average leaders (Harris is first at 3.94 kills/gm while Lee is fourth at 3.02 kpg) ... Harris (72) and Lee (54) also are the first Irish teammates to both post more than 50 career double-digit kill matches ... Lee is on pace to best the Irish season kill average record of 4.59, set by Christy Peters in 1994 ... sophomore middle Mary Leffers' has surged to a .341 season hitting pct. that would rank third in Irish history ... Harris has posted five 20-plus kill matches in 1997, already fifth-most in Irish history ... freshmen setter Denise Boylan's assist average of 12.11/gm would rank fourth in Irish history ... Harris' season ace avg. (0.55/gm) ranks fourth in Irish history, behind her first three seasons ... Lee is averaging 3.11 digs/gm, giving her a combined kill/dig average of 7.75/gm that would rank third in Irish history .... as a team, Notre Dame's 16.38 kills per game would rank first in Irish history while the team hitting pct. of .260 would rank third, behind the .271 mark in 1995 and .263 in '86.

    MOVING ON UP: Senior hitter Angie Harris continues to add to her prominence in the Irish record book ... she owns seven Notre Dame service ace records (including 212 in her career, a career average of 0.627/gm and nine in a match) while her career kill average of 3.94/gm would set a new Irish record in that category, surpassing the 3.82 set by '95 grad. Christy Peters ... Harris has 1,330 kills in her career and during the past few weeks moved into third on the Irish all-time kills list, moving past Alicia Turner (1,162; 1989-92), former teammate Jenny Birkner (1,171) '89 graduates Mary Kay Waller (1,188) and Maureen Shea (1,193) and Jessica Fiebelkorn (1,299; 1989-92) ... she trails only Peters (1,683) and Zanette Bennett (1,471; 1985-89) on the Irish career kills list ... Harris owns 72 career matches with double-digit kills, 2nd in Irish history behind Peters (80) ... Harris also ranks 2nd to only Peters (19) with 16 career 20-plus kill matches, including five in 1997 ... in terms of career double-double matches (kills/digs), Harris ranks 4th with 30, just four behind Birkner ... her career dig average of 2.59/gm ranks 7th all-time at Notre Dame ... Harris' 875 career digs rank 10th on that Irish all-time list.

    DID YOU KNOW?: The Notre Dame volleyball, women's soccer and women's basketball teams posted a combined 148-38-2 record during the 1995-96 and 1996-97 seasons (for a combined .790 winning percentage) ... Notre Dame was one of four Division I schools which saw its women's soccer, men's soccer and volleyball teams all advance to the 1996 NCAA's (the others were George Mason, Maryland and Washington) ... the Irish were the only school to post a win in each of those three fall NCAA tournaments ... Notre Dame sophomore opposite Emily Schiebout and freshman outside hitter Adrienne Shimmel have a unique connection, as each has a twin brother.

    SHE CAN FLY 10,000 MILES: Senior Jaimie Lee was part of a Notre Dame team that travelled over 28,000 miles during the summer and spring of 1996 (highlighted by a July trip to Germany) ... after making another trip to Europe for the recent World University Games (in Sicily, Italy), Lee covered roughly 17,000 air miles from Aug. 4 (when she checked out of the Olympic Training Center and headed to Winnipeg for the Canada Cup) to Sept. 14 (when Notre Dame returned from the Colorado Invitational) ... with at least nine roadtrips on tap for the Irish in 1997, Lee could travel nearly 30,000 miles (from Aug. 4-Nov. 30) in order to play the game she loves.

    STACKING THE DECK: Notre Dame's 1997 schedule includes eight opponents who are ranked in the current AVCA top 25: #2 Long Beach State, #3 Florida, #7 UC Santa Barbara, #8 Wisconsin, #10 Washington State, #11 Texas, #12 Texas A&M and #19 Colorado ... seven other '97 Irish opponents received votes in the preseason poll: Louisville, Houston, Pittsburgh, Georgia, North Carolina, Oral Roberts and Illinois State ... of the 18 non-conference opponents on Notre Dame's 1997 schedule, only four did not receive votes in the preseason AVCA poll (Gonzaga, Utah, New Mexico and Marquette).

    LEE HAS RARE MISS: Senior hitter Jaimie Lee did not play in the first two matches of the Shamrock Invitational, as she was busy wrapping up competition as captain of the U.S. team that captured the silver medal in Sicily, Italy at the World University Games ... Lee has appeared in 97.5% (119 of 122) of Notre Dame's matches during her career, third best in Irish volleyball history ('97 grad. Jenny Birkner played in all 145 matches of her career while Janelle Karlan played in all 140 from 1990-93) ... prior to missing the '97 opener against Louisville, Lee had appeared in 62 consecutive matches, stretching back to the Sept. 15, 1995 matchup against North Carolina State at the Purdue Premier ... Lee has played in 392 of 423 career games (.927) and ranks behind only Karlan (.928) and Birkner (.965) in Irish history ... Lee needs to play in 105 games this season to become the fifth Irish player ever to log 450 in her career ... she needs to appear in 34 matches to move into fifth on that all-time list.
