Norris Named to USA Volleyball Collegiate National Team

April 10, 2018

East Lansing, Mich. -- - USA Volleyball has announced that Michigan State freshman Meredith Norris (Owosso, Mich.) is among its 24-player U.S. Women’s Collegiate National Team-Detroit (CNT-Detroit) roster. The roster is comprised of current collegiate players who will train and compete in Detroit from June 22 to July 1.

The CNT-Detroit 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 from June 22-26 at the University of Michigan. Afterward, the athletes will be assigned to one of two 12-member teams that will play three exhibition matches against each other at the Cobo Center from June 27, June 28 and June 30. The matches are being held in conjunction with the USA Volleyball Girls’ Junior National Championships under the same roof.

In the past, USA Volleyball has had three 12-player teams at the CNT, but reduced it to two in 2018.

“Meredith has had experience with USA Volleyball when she was in high school, and she had a very good tryout in Colorado back in March,” noted Cathy George. “With many of our players in our program moving into new roles for the 2018 season, this will be an outstanding opportunity for Meredith to gain more experience playing with and against some of the top young players in the country. We’re thrilled that we once again have an athlete participating in CNT – some of the top players in our program have used the High Performance opportunity to not only improve themselves, but gain more exposure within USA Volleyball.”
