TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Florida State sophomore middle hitter Norisha Campbell, of Universal City, Texas, is one of 20 top collegiate and high school volleyball players from around the country who was chosen to train for the Junior World Championships to be held in Saskatoon, Canada, in late August. Campbell, who becomes the first Florida State volleyball to train for the Junior National Team, was selected among a pool of approximately 100 applicants who recently participated in the Junior National Team Trials in Colorado Springs, Colo.
“I’m really excited for the opportunity to train this summer with some of the country’s best volleyball players,” Campbell said. “The trials were very intense, but they were a great experience. I’m really looking forward to the workouts in July. They will help me to get better as an individual and team player which will be important when I return to Florida State in the fall.”
Campbell will train at the United States Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs from July 10 to August 7. At the conclusion of the training period, the team will be cut to 12 members who will compete at the Junior World Championships, August 21 to Sept. 6.
FSU Head Coach Dr. Cecile Reynaud served as the head coach of the 1985 U.S. Junior National Team which toured Japan and China.
