Sachse volleyball star Favor Anyanwu is one of the top volleyball players in the nation, and now gets a chance to represent her country on the national level.
The senior USC commit was one of 12 players from across the country named to the USA U19 volleyball team. The team will compete at the FIVB Girls U19 World Championship on Aug. 1-11 in Osijek, Croatia, and Szeged, Hungary.
USA’s first game will be tomorrow morning at 8 a.m. local time, as they will face Korea. They will also play on Aug. 2-3 at the same time, with all games available on Volleyball World’s YouTube page.
