Utah sophomore setter Bailey Choy and Kansas State junior libero Riley Killeen were named to the U.S. Women’s Collegiate National-Team Detroit last week.
They are two of 24 volleyball players named to the team who will train and compete in Detroit from June 22 to July 1.
The CNT-Detroit team is considered a second tryout for the U.S. Women’s National Team. The players will train at the University of Michigan before two 12-member teams will be selected to play three exhibition matches against each other.
Choy, a 2016 ‘Iolani School alumna, recorded a team-best 1,241 assists and ranked seventh in the Pac-12 averaging 9.47 assists per set while helping the Utes advance to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2008.
Killeen, who graduated from ‘Iolani a year earlier than Choy and was one of two Wildcats to play in every set last season, transferred to Kansas State from Arizona. She registered a team-best 412 digs and 3.55 digs per set and was third on the team with 19 aces.
Four liberos and four setters were chosen for the CNT-Detroit squad.
