    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
