The U.S. Women’s National Volleyball Team has announced its finalized 25 player roster for the FIVB Nations League, which includes three former Huskers. All three are outside hitters; Mikaela Foecke, Jordan Larson and Kelsey Robinson.
Foecke just wrapped up her Husker career in December. The AVCA First Team All-American is one of the most celebrated players in program history, having won more NCAA Tournament matches than any other player in Nebraska history.
Larson has been a Team U.S.A. mainstay for over a decade. The Fremont, Nebraska native has played professional volleyball ever since her Husker career ended in 2008.
Robinson joined Team U.S.A. shortly after her time at Nebraska came to an end in 2013. Robinson was a part of the U.S. team that won the 2014 world championships in Italy. She also helped grab the gold at the FIVB Nations League Tournament last year in Nanjing, China.
Team U.S.A. will play three games in Lincoln at Pinnacle Bank Arena this summer in the tournament. They’ll play Korea on June 4, Germany on June 5 and Brazil on June 7.
