Fritz to Coach USA A2 Team

MANHATTAN, Kan. Kansas State volleyball coach Suzie Fritz has been chosen to coach the 2009 USA Women’s National Volleyball A2 Team this summer. The coaching staff and roster were announced by USA Volleyball on Monday and Fritz was selected as a head coach.

 

“It’s an honor to be asked to work with USA Volleyball and help them move forward in developing future talent for Hugh McCutcheon and our women’s national team program,” Fritz said. “It will be an opportunity to work with some tremendously talented young people.”

 

The team will train May 18-22 in Minneapolis before being split into two squads to participate in Open Division of the USA Adult Open Championships. Fritz will coach one of the 12-player teams while former K-State assistant coach and current Arizona State head coach Jason Watson will serve as the other head coach.

 

The A2 Team roster will include four setters, 10 outside/opposite hitters, six middle blockers and four liberos. Fritz will be familiar with a handful of the players as three athletes from Big 12 Conference schools were selected for the team.
