SALT LAKE CITY - University of Utah volleyball player Emillie Toone has been named to the U.S. Women's National Volleyball A2 team that will compete in late spring, earning a spot on the 20-member team.
"I am very happy for the opportunity that Emillie will have to represent the United States and to be in the U.S. National system," said head coach Beth Launiere. "This will be a great chance for her to play with and against some of the best players in the country as well as to represent the University of Utah volleyball program."
The players, all with remaining collegiate eligibility, will be split into two 10-member squads during training sessions prior to competing in the USA Volleyball Adult Open Championships May 26-June 2 in Austin, Texas.
