The University of Notre Dame volleyball team welcomed six freshmen to the program last week as preseason practice got underway.

Stay tuned over the next three days as Jo KremerSydney Kuhn and Maddie Plumlee answer a variety of hard-hitting questions. For segments with Maddie Dilfer and Sam Fry click here and here.
