UNC Asheville sophomore volleyball player Katie Davis has been selected to participate in this summer's USA Volleyball Women's Junior A1 National Team. The team will attend a 10-day training camp and compete in Europe from July 9-20. Team USA will cap its experience with the 9th Annual European Global Challenge in Pula, Croatia.


Prior to tournament play, the team will spend time in Maribor, Slovenia, and play exhibition matches against the Slovenian Youth and Junior National Teams. The Global Challenge Team will consist of 12 athletes and will be competing against other top junior national teams from Europe. The program is the premier international travel program for Junior-age athletes in the United States.


Davis enjoyed an excellent freshman season for the Bulldogs in 2013. She was Asheville’s starting setter and led Asheville in assists with a 9.07 per set average. Davis made the Big South All-Freshman team and was named Rookie of the Week twice during the season.
