Gretchen Cash of Carmel Valley and a student at The Bishop’s School, was selected from an open try-out in Anaheim to play on the Southern California Volleyball High Performance Global Challenge team.
The international Global Challenge Tournament is an annual competition held in Pula, Croatia. Last year’s European teams included the Russian Junior National Team, Czech JNT, Israeli JNT, Slovenian JNT and teams from Italy, Croatia and Romania.
First Gretchen will travel with the team to train in Milan, Italy and compete at the Savona Tournament. The team will then travel to Pula for opening ceremonies for the Global Challenge to compete against other European teams.
Prior to the Europe, Gretchen will compete with her club team, Coast Volleyball Club, at the Junior National tournament in Dallas, Texas.
