The CNT-Europe team will practice and compete July 5-16 and then again in the 13th Annual European Global Challenge July 11-14 in Croatia.While training, the team will be located in Maribore, Slovenia and will practice and play friendly matches against other National teams.

She also ranks 14th in WSU history with 42 solo blocks, 16th with 239 block assists, 16th with 281 total blocks, and fifth with an average of 1.30 blocks per set.
