COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Sept. 3, 2022) – Fourteen athletes have been selected to be part of the U.S. Women’s National Team competing at the Pan American Cup Final Six, which starts Sunday in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

Eleven players on the team return from the Pan American Cup team that won bronze on Aug. 28 in Mexico.

Setter: Tori Dilfer
Outside hitters: Dani Drews, Roni Jones-Perry and Avery Skinner
Middle blockers: Ali Bastianelli, Brionne Butler and Madeleine Gates
Opposites: Nia Reed and Stephanie Samedy
Liberos: Kendall White and Hana Lishman

Skinner was honored as Best Spiker and Best Scorer at the Pan Am Cup.

Three players joining the team are setter Bergen Reilly, outside hitter Alli Stumler and middle Ronika Stone.

Stumler and Stone have been part of the training group for the team.

Reilly, 17, is joining the team for the first time in Santo Domingo after playing earlier this summer for the United States at the Girls U19 Pan Am Cup in Tulsa. Reilly was named MVP and Best Setter of that tournament, which the U.S. Girls won. After the tournament, she will return to Sioux Falls, S.D., to play her senior season at O’Gorman High School.

Michelle Chatman, who was an assistant coach for the Pan American Cup team, will be the head coach in Santo Domingo. The assistant coaches will be Jonathan Charette and five-time Olympian Danielle Scott.

“Our team plays with a lot of passion and a lot excitement and so we are expecting our players to play well,” Chatman said. “I think that all of the teams competing here are in very good shape. We all trained hard, so it is going to be a lot of fun to compete.

The Pan American Cup Final Six format will be five days of round-robin. The top four teams will move on to the semifinals on Sept. 9.
