Volleball Falls at Notre Dame and I'm on my way to Durham

This will be quick, friends. The Maryland volleyball team suffered a difficult road loss to the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in South Bend on Friday. After a strong first set in which they did everything well, hitting, serving, defending, setting to a variety of hitters to win by a relatively comfortable 25-21 score, their game took a step back in the final three sets. Perhaps the critical juncture of the match came after the Terps had clawed back from a 20-15 deficit to a set point at 24-23 but a poor set left Adreene Elliott no real opportunity to have a good swing at the ball and ND went on to take the set 27-25.

As Sarah Harper recently told me, volleyball is a game of momentum and the Irish took the momentum of their second set win to sweep the third and fourth set and hand Maryland a tough 3-1 loss. Amy Dion continued to improve as a setter with 31 assists and Sarah Harper again managed 21 digs to move within (I think) 24 of becoming Maryland's all-time leader in that category.

And on a side note, I'm off to Durham in a few hours (it's about midnight as I write this) to watch the field hockey team take on Duke in Maryland's last ever regular season ACC match. I plan to have a detailed report but it will be a bit late.
