    And here's the first sentence in the article linked from the tweet. It describes what it is they were selected for.

    "COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (April 9, 2015) – USA Volleyball has selected 36 athletes to participate in the U.S. Collegiate National Team (CNT) program that will train and compete in conjunction with the USA Volleyball Girls’ Junior National Championships from June 21-29 in New Orleans, La."

    The Daily Camera has now published a story about the four Buffs going to New Orleans which includes quotes from Coach Kritza and Alexis Austin- http://www.dailycamera.com/cu-colle...uffs-named-usa-national-collegiate?source=rss .

    Sounds like a good opportunity for the players to get some great training with, and competition against, other top players from around the country which should only help the players, and Buffs as a team, improve and play better next year. It will also let them get more exposure with the National Team coaches, which might potentially help them with their post-collegiate careers.

    EDIT- Just saw there's a more detailed and informative article at http://www.cubuffs.com/ViewArticle.dbml?DB_OEM_ID=600&ATCLID=210014793 which includes quotes from all 4 of the Buffs going to the "U.S. Collegiate National Team (CNT) program" .

    Congratulations to the young women, talent and hard work involved.

    This can't hurt with recruiting either.

    This is an exciting opportunity for these players and shows where the CU volleyball program is headed.
