March 12, 2019

WACO, Texas – Baylor volleyball’s Yossiana Pressley has been invited as one of 17 players to participate in the U.S. Women’s National Volleyball Team spring training block held March 16-23 in Anaheim, Calif. at the American Sports Centers.

“We are excited Yossi will be training in Anaheim with an elite group of athletes and coaches,” head coach Ryan McGuyre said. “This opportunity is a testament to her abilities, work ethic and the training she has put in at Baylor. We expect her to continue to learn and grow and represent Baylor and USA well one day on the national stage.”

All 17 athletes will be evaluated for additional training this summer with the full U.S. Women’s National Team with the opportunity to make international rosters including the Pan American Games and Pan American Cup.

The training group includes 10 athletes with collegiate eligibility remaining. For these athletes, the training block serves as an extended tryout in compliance with NCAA rules.

“For those of us on the U.S. Women’s National Team staff, every day we get to work with dedicated people pursuing mastery is a great day,” U.S. Women’s National Team Head Coach Karch Kiraly said. “We’re pumped for the opportunity to work with this group, and excited to see how they all develop over the next several years. Finally, a gratitude shout out: for all those people with remaining college eligibility, a big thank you to all of their college programs whose support made this training camp possible.”

The Bears are coming off their third-straight NCAA Tournament appearance and matched its highest finish in Big 12 action in program history during the 2018 season.
