Congrats to Tita Akiu.
Former Hawaii libero Reyn “Tita” Akiu is one of 17 players to be invited by the U.S. Women’s National Team to participate in a spring training block held from Saturday to March 23 at the American Sports Center in Anaheim, Calif., where the national teams train.
All 17 athletes will be evaluated for additional training this summer with the full U.S. Women’s National Team with the opportunity to make international rosters including the Pan American Games and Pan American Cup.
Akiu is one of two liberos to be invited along with Justine Wong-Orantes (Nebraska). Akiu is one of five who participated in the recent U.S. Women’s National Team Open Tryout held March 1-3 in Colorado Springs. Akiu also is one of five players who have exhausted their collegiate eligibility following the 2018 season.
