University of Hawaii press release
University of Hawai‘i outside hitter Kanani Danielson has been selected as one of 24 players for the U.S. Women’s National A2 Program for 2010.
The 2010 U.S. Women’s National A2 program is scheduled to train May 24-28 in Tempe, Ariz., before being split into two 12-player rosters to compete in the Open Division of the 2010 USA Open National Championships held in nearby Phoenix. The Open Division flight takes place May 29-June 1 at the Phoenix Convention Center.
“I was very happy with the level of the tryout held in February and, as a result, we expect that this year’s A2 teams will be very strong in training and in competition at the USA Open National Championships,” U.S. Women’s National Team Head Coach Hugh McCutcheon said. “The future continues to look bright for the U.S. Women’s National Team with the talent coming up through the pipeline.”
