University of Georgia senior volleyball setter Meghan Donovan is one of 28 student-athletes named to the U.S. Women’s Collegiate National Team – Anaheim roster, USA Volleyball announced Monday.
Donovan, a native of St. Louis, Missouri, is one of four setters on the CNT-Anaheim roster. The squad will train June 23-29 at the American Sports Centers in Anaheim, the official host city for the U.S. Women’s and Men’s National Volleyball Teams. The program will hold a public Red-Blue scrimmage on June 28 in the vicinity of Anaheim.
“We’re very excited for Meghan to have this experience,” Georgia head volleyball coach Tom Black said. “She’s earned it and will only grow from this experience.”
Athletes were selected through the U.S. Women’s National Team Open Tryouts held Mar. 1-3 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
In 2018 for the Bulldogs, Donovan concluded the season as one of the top setters in the Southeastern Conference. She averaged 11.07 assists per set, ranking second in the league and 28th in the country. Georgia’s 13.17 kills per set ranked top-five in the SEC. Donovan was named SEC Setter of the Week four times.
Last month USA Volleyball announced its CNT-World University Games and CNT-Japan Tour rosters. All told, 52 athletes are taking part in the Collegiate National Team program, all which are considered second tryouts for the U.S. Women’s National Teams under NCAA rules.
