Drews Named to USA Volleyball Collegiate National Team

May 23, 2021

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Utah Volleyball's rising fifth year senior Dani Drews has been named to the 2021 USA Volleyball Collegiate National Team, the organization announced late last week.
Players on the Collegiate National Team, selected by the U.S. Women's National Team staff and National Team Development Program (NTDP), will work with top volleyball coaches at USAV's Anaheim training center.
Drews, the Pac-12 Player of the Year, is coming off a season where she led the country in kills per set averaging 5.21. The three-time All-American earned AVCA First Team honors for the second season in a row and helped lead Utah to a third-place finish in the Pac-12. Drews has decided to return for her fifth season this fall.
This is her second summer being selected for the USA Collegiate National Team, but activities were canceled last summer due to Covid-19. Back in the summer of 2019, Drews was selected and traveled to Japan to play for the US Collegiate National Team - Japan.
Twenty-eight volleyball players were selected from 15 universities and will train from June 13-18.
