In case you missed the news Saturday night, the U.S. Women’s National Team, ranked No. 1 in the by the FIVB, earned its 2016 Olympic Games berth after defeating No. 7 Dominican Republic 25-19, 25-19, 25-18 Saturday evening to conclude the NORCECA Olympic Qualification Tournament in front of 10,213 fans at the Pinnacle Bank Arena in Lincoln, Neb.

The interesting sidenote was that Tama Miyashiro was not on the roster due to injury. But the team apparently donated money to have her in Nebraska according to a story by the Associated Press.
