NOTRE DAME, Ind. - For the third time this season, Notre Dame volleyball outside hitter Andrea McHugh was named the BIG EAST Conference Freshman of the Week, as announced by the league Monday afternoon. McHugh is now tied with senior Kellie Sciacca for the most Freshman of the Week honors earned by an Irish player, as Sciacca also notched three during her 2007 rookie campaign. Sciacca was named to the league's latest Honor Roll.

McHugh set a new career high with 19 kills - the most by an Irish player in a three-set match since 2006 - at Georgetown (Oct. 3) on a .562 clip, which was her best hitting pct. on the season. The effort came on the heels of posting 13 kills and five aces at USF (Oct. 1), making her the first Irish player with five aces in a contest since 2007. On the weekend, she hit .475 with 5.33 kills/set and 0.83 aces/set while leading the Irish to a pair of wins.

McHugh currently leads Notre Dame with 2.86 kill/set overall and 4.35 kills/set in league action, which is second-best in the BIG EAST. She has also accounted for 5.62 points/set in four league matches for the second-best average in the conference.

Notre Dame rides a four-match winning streak while continuing BIG EAST play later this week at Louisville (Oct. 9) and Cincinnati (Oct. 10). In fact, the Irish currently boast the nation's sixth-longest regular-season conference winning streak (19), dating back to the 2008 season.
