DURHAM, N.C. – USA Volleyball has selected Duke outside hitter Breanna Atkinson as one of 36 players to participate in the U.S. Collegiate National Team (CNT) program that will train in conjunction with the USA Volleyball Girls’ Junior National Championship from June 22 to July 1 in Minneapolis.

This CNT program includes nine middle blockers, nine outside hitters, six opposites, six setters and six liberos. After the training portion of the program, the 26 athletes will be divided into three equal teams which will compete in a round-robin event June 27-30. This program is considered a second tryout for the U.S. Women’s National Team.

A sophomore from Ashburn, Va., Atkinson appeared in 12 matches this season for the 2013 ACC Champion Blue Devils, starting three. She turned in a career night at Maryland on Nov. 8 in a 3-0 Duke victory, totaling 16 kills on .371 hitting to lead all players. Atkinson also totaled 12 kills in the Blue Devils’ four-set win at Pitt on Nov. 10.

Athlete selections for all three U.S. Collegiate National Team programs are being determined based on evaluations from the U.S. Women’s National Team open tryouts held Feb. 21-23 in Colorado Springs, Colo., or based on past performances within the CNT program.
