Hancock, Courtney Make U.S. Pan Am Cup Roster Again

Penn State women’s volleyball greats Micha Hancock and Megan Courtney will represent Team USA at the 2017 Pan American Cup in Peru June 17-25.

Hancock and Courtney trained with head coach Karch Kiraly’s U.S. squad in the weeks leading up to the final roster selection Thursday. It’s the second year in a row they’ll represent the stars and stripes at the Pan Am Cup after winning bronze in 2016.

Hancock, who hails from Edmond, Okla., is one of two setters named to the team, joining recent Wisconsin grad Lauren Carlini. She’ll serve as captain for the upcoming tournament. Courtney, a Dayton, Ohio, native, is part of a group of six outside hitters to don the red, white, and blue in Peru.

Big Ten grads Paige Tapp (Minnesota) and Amber Rolfzen (Nebraska) are also familiar faces on the roster. Penn State joins Oregon and Nebraska as the only college programs to have multiple players selected to the team.

Team USA is in Group A and will play opening-round matches against Venezuela on June 17, Colombia on June 18, Puerto Rico on June 19, Mexico on June 20, and Argentina on June 21.
