The team went on to place 10th in the USAV Girls Junior National Championships in Columbus, Ohio, June 30-July 3.
McLean and Slinde also tried out for the USA Volleyball High Performance Training Teams. Slinde made the A3 Youth Team and attended camp in Edmond, Okla., earlier this month. McLean made the A3 Select Team and travels to Las Vegas for training this week.
