The University of Notre Dame volleyball team welcomed six freshmen to the program last week as preseason practice got underway. The group comes to ND from California, Indiana, Kansas and Ohio and covers pretty much every position on the court. In a new Q&A series, it's time for Irish fans to meet the group and learn a little more about them leading up to Notre Dame's first match at No. 12 Minnesota August 29. Stay tuned over the next four days as Natalie JohnsonJo KremerSydney Kuhn and Maddie Plumlee answer a variety of hard-hitting questions. For yesterday's segment with Maddie Dilfer, click here
 
Next up: Middle Blocker Sam Fry.

High School: Ursuline Academy
 
Potential Major: Business
 
The best thing about my hometown: Friends and family
 
Favorite place on campus so far: St. Mary's Lake
 
What drew me to ND: The balance between great academics and athletics ... a competitive classroom environment ... all of the opportunities Notre Dame has to offer ... the tradition.
 
A hobby that most people wouldn't know about: Cooking / baking
 
Favorite app on phone: Instagram
 
Sport I'd play if it wasn't volleyball: Basketball
 
Game-day superstition: I usually wear the same headband (if I wear one)
 
What makes volleyball so special to me: Working with people just like me that are trying to achieve one goal

Advice that has stuck with me: "Leave the court a better player, leave Notre Dame a better person."
