The proverbial monkey has been lifted off the University of Notre Dame volleyball team’s back, as the Irish picked up the first ACC win in program history Friday night with a hard-fought and much-needed 3-0 sweep of the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets at O’Keefe Gymnasium to snap a seven-match losing streak.
“It (the win) was a long time coming,” said head coach Debbie Brown. “It was a hard-fought battle and it was not easy. The team showed incredible determination and you could tell that from the very first point. I think Georgia Tech is a really tough serving team and I thought our passing was exceptionally strong considering what a good serving team they are. Our blocking came back to life. We needed that, especially after last night when we blocked so poorly against Clemson … we will work hard to keep adding to these wins. It feels much, much better. I’m really happy with the team. I thought they played clutch.”
