It's A European Vacation For USC Women's Volleyball
May 25, 2007
LOS ANGELES -- The USC women's volleyball team will embark on a two-week European tour beginning on Saturday (May 26) and concluding on June 9. The Women of Troy will enjoy many days of sightseeing, but will also be competing against various teams to wrap up the spring practice season.
USC will travel to England, Poland, Hungary, Italy and Switzerland and will play four national teams during the two-week tour (Hungary, Slovenia/Slovakia, Sweden and Switzerland) among its seven slated matches.
'We have an opportunity with five seniors and an experienced group to get additional training on this trip,' said USC head coach Mick Haley. 'We have two players from Poland (Asia Kaczor and Marta Siemiatkowska), but the rest of the team does not fully understand the rich history of Europe. We believe the competition will help us to see how the squad has improved during the spring, but we also wanted to provide a full educational experience on this trip for our student-athletes.'
