COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo.- Sacred Heart University Men's Volleyball senior Timothy McIntosh was named to the USA Volleyball Collegiate National Team as announced by the association last night. The team includes five outside hitters, five middle blockers, two opposites, two setters and two liberos.
The selection process was an open video tryout to all collegiate athletes. They shared links to their game film for review and their VolleyMetrics stats from before the NCAA cancelation were also analyzed.
