COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Four members of the Maryland volleyball team were selected to participate in the U.S. Women’s National Team Open Tryouts, held at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs from March 3-5.
Sophomore opposite hitter Angel Gaskin, senior middle blocker Hailey Murray, freshman setter Taylor Smith and sophomore libero Kelsey Wicinski will travel to Colorado for tryouts.
The Terps were four of 244 athletes from 81 colleges and 10 high schools selected to try out for the U.S. Women’s National team and the U.S. Collegiate National Team program.
