DURHAM, N.C. – Duke sophomore Megan Hendrickson and All-ACC freshman Ali McCurdy will head to Colorado Springs, Colo., to participate in the U.S. Women’s National Volleyball Team Tryouts today through Sunday, Feb. 25-27, at the U.S. Olympic Training Center.

McCurdy, a 5-7 libero, emerged as one of the nation’s top freshmen in 2010, averaging 4.88 digs for a Duke team that won the ACC and advanced all the way to the NCAA Regional Final in University Park, Pa. McCurdy started every match for Duke and helped the Blue Devils (27-7, 16-4 ACC) hold opponents to a .173 hitting percentage.

Hendrickson, a 6-0 outside hitter, averaged 1.43 kills in 44 sets in her second season. Michigan’s Gatorade Volleyball Player of the Year as a senior at Jenison High School, Hendrickson reached double-digit kills twice as a key reserve for the Blue Devils.

A record 208 players will attend the U.S. Women’s National Team tryouts, which are open to current college-aged athletes and older. The three-day audition will have the oversight and evaluation of U.S. Women’s National Team head coach Hugh McCutcheon and assistant coaches Karch Kiraly and Paula Weishoff.
