SOUTH ORANGE, Ind. - Behind 17 kills and 13 digs from Toni Alugbue, the University of Notre Dame volleyball team knocked off Seton Hall, 3-1 (25-15, 19-25, 25-21, 25-22) on Saturday afternoon at Walsh Gym. 

Despite being out-hit (.296-.260) and out-blocked (10.0–9.0), the Irish hung tough, pounding out 66 kills to 58 for Seton Hall and tallying a season-high nine service aces to pull away for the four-set victory.

Alugbue led the way with her 10th double-double, but she was not alone as two other Irish student-athletes joined her in double figures. Sophomore Jeni Houser had 14 kills as she hit .407, while senior Hilary Eppink had 15 kills as she hit .382.

Junior Andie Olsen had eight kills and four blocks, while fellow junior Andrea McHugh had six kills and 10 digs. Setter Maggie Brindock had four kills, 51 assists, 11 digs and two blocks, while freshman libero Taylor Morey had 21 digs, seven assists and two service aces.

The double-double was Brindock’s 10th of the season, while her 51 assists was the fifth time she had reached 50-plus this season. The 21 digs was the seventh time Morey had hit 20-plus in a match in her first year with the Irish.

Notre Dame has now won nine matches in a row, which is the longest streak since the 2009 won 15 in a row.

The Irish (18-6, 11-1 BIG EAST) meet Rutgers at 2 p.m. on Sunday in Piscataway, N.J., to close out another conference road trip.
