Hartong to train with NT
Thanks to seta one for putting this up on another tread.
Hartong didn’t play with the team last summer due to wanting to rehab her injury.
WINTER TRAINING BLOCK: The U.S. Women’s National Volleyball Team will hold an eight-week winter training block starting Jan. 27 at the American Sports Centers in Anaheim, Calif. The training block will include primarily athletes who recently completed their collegiate eligibility, though some athletes with will train part-time around their academic curriculum. The setters are Cal State Northridge’s Sydney Gedryn (San Jose, Calif.), University of Missouri’s Molly Kreklow (Delano, Minn.) and University of Oregon’s Lauren Plum (Poway, Calif.). The opposites are University of Washington’s Kylin Munoz (Monroe, Wash.) and University of Texas’ Bailey Webster (Baltimore, Md.). The middle blockers are University of San Diego’s Chloe Ferrari (Clovis, Calif.), Michigan State University’s Alexis Mathews (Detroit, Mich.), University of Southern California’s Alexis Olgard (Spokane, Wash.) and Penn State University’s Katie Slay (Raleigh, N.C.). The liberos are University of Southern California’s Natalie Hagglund (Encinitas, Calif.) and Loyola Marymount University’s Betsi Metter (Phoenix, Ariz.). The outside hitters are University of Hawaii’s Emily Hartong (Los Alamitos, Calif.), Loyola Marymount University’s Kat Luft (Thousand Oaks, Calif.) and UCLA’s Kelly Reeves (San Diego, Calif.) and University of Washington’s Krista Vansant (Redlands, Calif.). Additions to the roster may occur during the training block.
Some are clear choices, and some are head scratchers. Suprised to see girls like wopat, McClendon, scott not make this list
Open tryouts for National Team and U.S. Collegiate National Teams program (formerly U.S. Women’s Senior A2 Teams) in late Feb. I’m expecting Nikki Taylor and Tayler Higgins to be there competing for a spot on the A2 teams
Perhaps maybe Jade again and Tai? ( unless she really is going on a mission) I’d like Passi and Mendoza to try out as well.
brandon – there may be players who were invited, but perhaps could not commit to that period of time for the training. it could be due to school. it could also be that some players went straight to playing overseas (there is a thread on Volleytalk that mcclendon signed with a team in azerbaijan).
4. Ahh I see thanks for clearing that up!
