Beating Notre Dame


From Go Pack:

The NC State women’s volleyball team came roaring back to win three consecutive sets after dropping the opening frame to defeat the Notre Dame Fighting Irish, 3-1 (22-25, 25-18, 25-15, 25-9), Sunday afternoon in Reynolds Coliseum.

"We played well. We came out in the first set and started great," said head coach Bryan Bunn. "We had control before they made a run, but we bounced back and played really well in sets 2-4."

The Wolfpack offense seemed to be clicking on all cylinders as the squad recorded a season-best .388 attacking percentage. State had 58 kills on 121 attacks, while only committing 11 attacking errors, its lowest total of the season.

"Our hitters did a great job of taking care of the ball," Bunn added. "They got up and swung aggressively and had great success."

In the first set, the Pack led throughout most of the match before the Irish went on a run to close out the set. Junior middle blocker Alesha Wilson ignited the Wolfpack offense with the first kill of the game and State held the lead until Notre Dame took the lead late at 23-22. The score was tied eight different times during the frame before the Fighting Irish ended the set on a 4-0 run.

Is this State's first win over a Notre Dame team since ND joined the conference?
