COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Samantha Cash (San Diego, Calif./Canyon Crest Academy), who signed a National Letter of Intent and will join the Pepperdine women's volleyball roster in the fall, is currently in Colorado Springs, Colo. trying out for the U.S. Women's National Volleyball team. Future teammate Stevi Robinson (Hermosa Beach, Calif./Mira Costa) is also at the U.S. Olympic Training Center vying for a spot on the squad.
The tryout selection process began on Friday and continues through Sunday with a record-high 205 participants. Athletes who are not selected to the national team could also earn a spot on the U.S. Women's National Senior A2 Team or the Women's Junior National Team if born in 1992 or 1993.
Cash was captain of the USA Youth National Team that won a silver medal at the Youth Olympic Games in Singapore during August 2010. She also won gold medal at the NORCECA Championships in Tijuana, Mexico in July 2010.
Robinson also boasts national team experience, playing with the USA Junior National Team in 2006 that won the gold medal at the NORCECA Continental Championships in Mexico.
