Pepperdine junior Hana Lishman, a 2016 Punahou alumnus, and Kansas State incoming freshman Teana Adams-Kaonohi, who enrolled in January after attending Punahou, have been selected to the U.S. Women’s Collegiate National Team — Anaheim roster.
The final selections for the 28-member team were made today and announced by USA Volleyball.
Both players will train June 23-29 at the American Sports Center in Anaheim, Calif., the official host city for the U.S. Women’s and Men’s National Volleyball Teams.
The program will hold a public Red-Blue scrimmage on June 28.
“It is such an honor to be able to represent my school and the United States,” Lishman said in a Pepperdine press release. “I am very excited to train and compete at the next level.”
Lishman is one of four liberos to make the team and Adams-Kaonohi is one of four setters selected.
Last week, Utah freshman Saige Ka’aha’aina-Torres (‘Iolani ’18) was one of two setters named to the U.S. Women’s Collegiate National Team — Japan squad that will play six games in seven days in late May in Japan.
Athletes were selected through the U.S. Women’s National Team Open Tryouts held Mar. 1-3 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo.
USA Volleyball’s CNT-World University Games, CNT-Japan and CNT-Anaheim teams total 52 athletes taking part in the Collegiate National Team program, all which are considered second tryouts for the U.S. Women’s National Teams under NCAA rules.
