COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Illinois recruit Jordyn Poulter was selected to the U.S. Girls’ Youth National Volleyball Team that will compete in the FIVB Girls’ Under-18 World Championship starting next week in Thailand.
The Aurora, Colo., native is one of two setters on the 12-player U.S. roster that was chosen from a pool of 16 athletes who took part in a third tryout session this month in Anaheim, Calif.
