U.S. Women Announce Final Roster for Worlds

Experience and youth come together in the 14-player U.S. Women’s National Team roster as they prepare to defend their FIVB World Championship title. This talented team has a rich history of success, including two tournament gold medals in 2018. However, the past achievements mean little as they head to Japan for the World Championships starting on September 29.

A Strong and Experienced Roster

The preliminary roster consists of eight players with Olympic Games experience, bringing valuable knowledge and skill to the team. Stars like Adams, Akinradewo, Hill, Larson, Lowe, Lloyd, Murphy, and Robinson have all represented the United States on the Olympic stage. Additionally, Dixon was part of the 2014 World Championship gold-medal team, along with Adams, Akinradewo, Hill, Larson, Murphy, and Robinson. In fact, Hill was selected as the most valuable player of the 2014 World Championship, an impressive feat for a player in only her second year of international competition.

The Road to the World Championship

The FIVB Women’s World Championship takes place every four years and will be held in Japan from September 29 to October 20. Team USA begins their journey in Pool C, facing tough opponents including Azerbaijan, Trinidad & Tobago, Korea, Thailand, and Russia. The top four teams from Pool C will advance to the second round in Osaka. From there, the top three teams from each second-round pool will move on to the third round in Nagoya. The semifinals and medal matches will take place in Yokohama on October 19-20.

The Challenge Ahead

Despite their past achievements, Head Coach Kiraly stresses that the team is not resting on their laurels. They enter this year’s World Championship with a clean slate and a determination to win. The road to victory will not be easy, and every point must be earned. The team will need to fight hard and give their all in every play to secure the 25 points before their opponents do. The competition will be fierce, but the U.S. Women’s National Team is ready to rise to the challenge.
