2010 Notre Dame Volleyball Schedule Get Acrobat Reader

NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Head coach Debbie Brown recently announced Notre Dame's 2010 volleyball schedule, which features 14 home matches and several road trips across the United States. The defending BIG EAST Conference regular season champions return nine Monogram winners from 2009 as six newcomers will make their collegiate debut in an Irish uniform.

"We're excited to have the schedule completed, and we think it will be a very manageable yet competitive schedule for our program this season," Brown said. "We like what we've done outside of conference play to help prepare us for what has been a BIG EAST slate that improves each season."

Notre Dame starts the 2010 campaign by hosting the Shamrock Invitational at the Purcell Pavilion at the Joyce Center. Marshall (Aug. 27), Cal Poly (Aug. 28) and Arizona (Aug. 29) will join the Irish to open the season.

The Irish will be on the road for the next two weeks with four-team invitationals at Nevada (Sept. 3-4) and Denver (Sept. 10-12). The Wolfpack also welcomes Belmont and Weber State while Notre Dame join Gonzaga and Jacksonville State in Colorado's Mile High City.

The Notre Dame / adidas Invitational marks the home return and final tune-up for BIG EAST play with matches versus Delaware (Sept. 17), Santa Clara (Sept. 18) and Dayton (Sept. 19).

"With a young squad going into the season, we'll be tested early, and that will be a good indication as to where we stand and where we need to improve," Brown said.

West Virginia (Sept. 24) and Pittsburgh (Sept. 26) will visit Notre Dame to conclude a five-match homestand and kickoff the BIG EAST portion of the schedule before a four-contest roadswing to USF (Oct. 1), Georgetown (Oct. 3), Louisville (Oct. 9) and Cincinnati (Oct. 10).

DePaul (Oct. 15) will be the second of three home matches that coincide with home football games, follow by a midweek tilt with Western Michigan (Oct. 19).

Five of the next six matches will be played at home with a single road trip to Villanova (Nov. 5) in store to begin the final month of the regular season.

A break in the conference schedule will come in the form of a Nov. 7 match with Northern Iowa, as a twinbill at Rutgers (Nov. 13) and Seton Hall (Nov. 14) wraps up action before the BIG EAST Tournament (Nov. 19-21), which will be hosted by Pittsburgh.

The Irish will travel to Long Beach State (Nov. 26) for the second time in three seasons to prep for the NCAA Championship (Dec. 3-18).

Six teams (Arizona, Cincinnati, Dayton, Jacksonville State, Long Beach State and Louisville) on the 2010 slate participated in last year's postseason showdown.
