University of Colorado junior-to-be Gabby Simpson has been selected to the USA Volleyball Collegiate National Training Team-Europe Tour 12-player roster.
The squad, which is part of USA Volleyball’s High Performance pipeline, will train and compete from July 6-16. The CNT-Europe squad will have training matches against an Italian Federation Team July 7, July 8 and July 9 near Milan, Italy, before heading to Pula, Croatia, to play in the Global Challenge July 11-14.
“I’m very excited for Gabby,” head coach Jesse Mahoney said. “She has very high goals for herself and her continued development and participation in the USA pipeline is very important to her. To make this program as a setter after her hiatus from the position last season says a lot about her focus and determination in our gym these last few months.”
Simpson was named one of two setters on the team after spending the majority of last season as an opposite hitter and is one of three Pac-12 athletes on the team.
