Women's U21 National Team

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (June 24, 2024) – USA Volleyball and its National Team Development Program are happy to announce the 12 players selected to compete at the NORCECA Women’s U21 Continental Championship on June 25-30 in Toronto, Canada.

The team was selected from a group of 20 that trained on June 14-22 in Anaheim, California.

Setters on the team are Campbell Flynn and Bergen Reilly. Reilly is also the team captain. The libero is Ramsey Gary.

The outside hitters are Julia Blyashov, Blaire Bayless, Brooklyn DeLeye, Teraya Sigler and Abby Vander Wal. Kennedy Martin is the opposite.

The middle blockers are Favor Anyanwu, Taylor Harvey and Andi Jackson.

Of this group, Bayless, Blyashov, Sigler and Vander Wal competed on the U19 team that won the 2023 Pan American Cup in Puerto Rico.

Reilly played on the 2021 Girls U18 Team that won bronze at the World Championship and on the 2022 Girls U19 Team that won gold at the Pan American Cup. She also took the silver medal with the U.S. Women’s National Team at the 2022 Pan American Cup Final Six.

Anyanwu, Flynn, Sigler and Vander Wal competed on the U19 team that won gold at the 2023 World Championship in Croatia.

Due to the NCAA season preventing many U21 athletes from competing at the 2023 Women’s U21 World Championship in Mexico, Flynn, Harvey and Vander Wal were among those who stepped up to the challenge and were part of the team that placed sixth.

Martin was a part of the 2023 Women’s U21 Team training for the Pan American Cup in Mexico where the team took home gold.

Gary will be playing on her first U.S. age-group national team.

Heather Olmstead, head coach of the BYU women’s volleyball team, is the Women’s U21 head coach assisted by Jaylen Reyes (Nebraska) and Alex Dunphy (Stanford).

All matches will be livestreamed on Volleyball Canada’s YouTube.
