    Other USA NT players I'm not sure of competing/unknown status:

    Lindsey Berg
    Kimberly Glass
    Tayyiba Haneef-Park
    Tamari Miyashiro (competed at Montreux)
    Jill Collymore (competed at Montreux)
    Kim Willoughby (still serving suspension)

    I'll add more players as I remember them.

    "[size=8]It's years and years of work and sacrifice and dedication. Along with a lot of these girls, we've sweat and we've bled and we've cried together in past Olympics. It just brought tears to my eyes, & I'm more than thrilled. This will be forever." -LOGAN MAILE LEI TOM (Silver Medallist - 2008 Beijing & 2012 London Olympic Games, 2011 World Cup runner up, 2003 & 2007 World Cup 3rd place, 2002 World Champs runner up, 4-time World GrandPrix Champs)

  • I'm not sure if Hugh will still use this roster for the WCH. It may be highly probable that he will use the WGP to evaluate the performance of the players especially the setters. Alisha Glass, Angie Pressey may not be called for the WCH. Jordan Larson may not be called as well. I think it will be a no-brainer for Hugh to include Berg for the WCH so Spicer and Thompson would be under the microscope. I love Spicer but so far, Thompson had been the most consistent of the two. If Kim Glass will come back, then other OHs and OPP might also be left behind.

    I think Robyn has already retired from the NT. A lot of young players in this current crop are way better than Sherisa so I think she may not be called for NT duties. I wish Kim Willoughby will clean act her act after her suspension. If so, she might have a slight chance to be included in the next OG.
