FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Rising seniors Marlee Reynolds and Kelsey Snider departed for Bologna, Italy, on Tuesday, the beginning of their two-week trip to Europe with the Mountain West Global Challenge All-Star Volleyball Team.
The pair of Colorado State teammates are two of 12 student-athletes from the Mountain West, in addition to several coaches, led by San Diego State head coach Deitre Collins-Parker.
Once joining together in Italy, the team will train for two days and have three days of friendly matches before competing in the 2014 European Global Challenge in Pula, Croatia. From July 13-17, the all-star team will play against Junior National teams from Slovenia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary and Russia, as well as club teams from Italy, Austria and Romania.
Snider will be providing periodic updates, which will be featured on the Mountain West website. Follow CSU volleyball’s social media accounts and check back here for links to updates.
Bring It Promotions, under the ownership of Tim Kelly, is managing the trip, and has been running the Global Challenge tournament for 10 years. BIP has been coordinating overseas university tours since 1997, including the Rams’ trip to Italy and France in 2012.
