“We made a (formation change) and I think we handled the adjustment really well,” York said. “I was impressed with them. It’s almost what we’ve been waiting for. Everyone had the ability and we just waited for everything to click.”

“We always know that Cincinnati teams will be exceptional,” he said Jenna Leistner, head coach of Notre Dame Associate. “That’s why we plan them, or at least try to do them every year, because playing these teams just makes us better.

“In training we work a lot on shots and with (Breissinger) in the back line it’s hard to put something down,” he said Kayla Hostetler, Senior Libero of Notre Dame. “We have to work with our roll shots that we have and even those have not been filed. We just have to come together, stay calm and realize that instead of getting kills, we need to get points for different things.

The Pandas host Louisville Assumption (28-6) Thursday at 7:30 p.m. Notre Dame beat the Rockets 2-0 (25-23, 25-19) on October 1 in Chicago.

Holy Cross 3, Scott 1

The Indians (28-5) outlasted the Eagles (23-11) 25-12, 22-25, 25-23, 25-20 points at Taylor Mill.

“Our biggest problem is passing,” he said Jill Hunt, Holy Cross head coach. “In the game where they beat us in the second game, we had problems with the serve reception. They served super aggressively and that kept them in the game. They also swung pretty big. They came to win. But in the end I think we overtook them.”

Holy Cross had 40 kills, 38 assists, 52 digs, and five aces. Senior Setters Mayan hunting had 35 assists and 11 digs with Junior Julia Jaeger Recording 29 kills and senior Rylee Hood counts nine. Julia Hunt, Hood and Senior Libero Natalie Bessler had 10 excavations each.

“[My judgment vision]helps because I can say that point is open from the center, then I turn out and that point is open,” Julia Hunt said. “For example, if I go up the middle and the right side helps, I know that spot is open. If the right-back then cheats, then I know that the corner is open. So it’s all about seeing one point and putting the other pieces together.”

I think the players also played a big role. Nobody was cocky. Some players can be like that as they level up. I feel like they were really nice and supportive. The city (Seattle) is also very nice, so when I’m not playing volleyball I can go out and do something and have fun.”
