Mackenzie Cole of the Girls 17 Red team will soon depart for the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, CO as one of 20 athletes invited to the USA Volleyball Youth National Training Team.
She is one of only two Liberos chosen to attend this camp and hopes to make the cut-down when the roster will be trimmed to 12. Those 12 will then travel to Rosario and Santa Fe, Argentina to compete in the 2017 FIVB Girls U18 World Championships.
Academy Volleyball would like to wish Mackenzie good luck on her journey and will be rooting for her success.
