Klefot Selected to Train with Team USA

UK Volleyball 300LEXINGTON, Ky. (5/3/13) – One of Kentucky’s all-time best will head out West to train with the nation’s top talent beginning this week. Former two-time All-America selection Stephanie Klefot has been selected to train with the United States National Team in Anaheim, Calif., beginning on Monday.
 
“I’m very excited to train with some of the best volleyball talent in the world,” Klefot said. “It’s an honor and a privilege to even be given this opportunity. I hope to represent Kentucky and the program Coach (Craig) Skinner has developed as best as possible.”
 
Klefot wrapped up her stellar four-year career this fall after earning a pair of All-America selections and becoming the only player in program history to appear in three Sweet 16s during her tenure. The Louisville, Ky., native secured a record-breaking three consecutive Southeastern Conference Libero of the Year accolades.
 
With more than 1,900 career digs she capped her career ranking second all-time in UK history in that category. She played in more than 485 sets and appeared in the NCAA Tournament in all four seasons in the Blue and White.
 
Team USA coach Karch Kiraly selected Klefot to join the squad for an extended training session, after a tryout in February. The National team is coming off a silver medal performance at the 2012 Olympics, and Kiraly has been tapped to lead the team into the 2016 Games in Rio De Janeiro.
 
The Red, White and Blue are slated to participate in the FIBA Volleyball World Grand Prix in 2013 in Japan later this year. Team USA will look to defend its 2012 title.
