NOTRE DAME, Ind. - Notre Dame junior outside hitter Kristen Dealy was named the BIG EAST Volleyball Player of the Week, as announced by the league Monday afternoon. The honor is second of Dealy's career, as she was one of four Irish players to win the award during the 2009 campaign.

The Santa Barbara, Calif., native was named BIG EAST Freshman of the Week on Nov. 17, 2008, and has been named to the BIG EAST all-tournament team in each of the last two seasons.

Dealy steered the Irish to a pair of wins last week and led the conference with 5.17 kills/set while ranking ninth with 4.00 digs/set over that stretch. She notched 11 kills and nine digs in a 3-0 win over Rutgers (Nov. 13) and followed that with a 20-kill, 15-dig performance at Seton Hall (Nov. 14). It was Dealy's fourth career 20+ kill output and 28th double-double. She is one of just a handful of Irish players to knock down 20+ kills in a three-set match and the first since 2006.

With the regular season portion of the schedule in the books, the BIG EAST Volleyball Championship will take place Nov. 19-21 at Fitzgerald Field House in Pittsburgh, Pa. Fifth-seeded Notre Dame will take on fourth-seeded Villanova at 10:00 a.m. (ET) on Friday.
