Baylor Volleyball’s Fanning Named to U.S. Collegiate National Team

WACO, Texas – Baylor volleyball’s Shelly Fanning was selected to represent USA Volleyball, one of 36 players who will train and compete as part of the U.S. Collegiate National Team-Indianapolis program, announced Friday by USA Volleyball.

Fanning is the second BU player selected to the U.S. Collegiate National Team, following Andie Malloy’s selections each of the last two seasons.

The squad, which is part of USA Volleyball’s High Performance pipeline and is considered a second tryout for the U.S. Women’s National Team, will train and compete from June 21-30 in Indianapolis, Indiana.

After the program is divided into three 12-player rosters from the training portion, the competition phase involving a round-robin tournament of the three squads will take place June 26-29 under the same roof as the USA Volleyball Girls’ Junior National Championships.

USA Volleyball announced its CNT-China Tour and CNT-Europe Tour rosters in March.

Athletes were selected through the U.S. Women’s National Team Open Tryouts held Feb. 19-21 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
