COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Kelly Reeves has been named to the U.S. Women's National Volleyball Team roster which will participate at the NORCECA World Championship Qualification Tournament being held May 15-18 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs.
"I'm really excited for this USA team - they put in the mindful effort during training earlier this year, and earned the right to represent our country at the World Championship Qualifier in Colorado Springs," said U.S. Women's National Volleyball Team Head Coach and UCLA men's volleyball standout Karch Kiraly.
The U.S. Women open pool play on May 15 against Guatemala, followed by Panama on May 16 and Honduras on May 17. All three U.S. pool matches are scheduled for 3 p.m. MT.

She concluded the tournament ranked seventh among all players in points scored with 115, which was second on Team USA. Reeves had 97 kills, nine blocks and nine service aces, leading the U.S. and tying for 15th in the tournament in aces.
Reeves finished her UCLA career last fall as a two-time All-Pac-12 Conference honoree. She played in 124 matches and totaled 1,186 digs, ninth on UCLA's all-time list, to go with 858 kills, 77 aces and 156 blocks. Reeves also had 68 career double-figure digs matches, 24 double-figure kills contests and 24 double-doubles as a Bruin.
