Senior opposite Jennifer Hamson returned home last week from an 11-day tour in China with the U.S. Collegiate National team.

Originally selected to participate as one of 36 players to play in Minneapolis, Hamson’s group was changed to one of just 12 headed to China.

The team participated in six matches against Chinese collegiate and adult teams.

The program was considered a second tryout for the U.S. Women’s National Volleyball Team.

This was the second year that Hamson participated in the U.S. Collegiate National Team (formerly known as the U.S. Women’s National A2 Team) having previously participated in the summer of 2012.
