COLORADO SPRINGS, CO. (Purdue Sports) — All-American Blake Mohler has been selected to the 28-player U.S. Women's Collegiate National Team-Anaheim roster (CNT-Anaheim), as announced by USA Volleyball Monday afternoon.

Mohler is one of eight middles selected to the roster after a junior season that saw her earn her first All-America honor with a third team selection.

"Spending several days training with and against the finest college volleyball players at the USA Olympic Volleyball Center will be a valuable experience for Blake," Purdue volleyball head coach Dave Shondell said. "So many of our players take a significant leap in their game between junior and senior seasons. This opportunity will add fuel to the fire that Blake already possesses. I'm proud of her commitment to becoming great and I'm very proud that she has been invited to train with the Collegiate National Team."

In 2018, Mohler paced the Boilermakers with 1.08 stuffs per set, while also sitting sixth in the Big Ten with a team-best 0.358 hitting percentage. Her 140 total blocks rank sixth in the league and 43rd in the NCAA. In conference action, she ranked among the top-15 blockers with 0.95 stuffs per set average and was 10th with a .321 attack clip.

The Ocean Springs, Mississippi, native started in all 33 matches this season, she also ranked third on the team with 316 kills for a 2.43 kills per set average while adding 46 digs, 10 assists and one service ace on the season. The All-Big Ten selection also took home MVP honors at the Stacey Clark Classic and Alabama's Crimson and White Tournament earlier this year.

The CNT-Anaheim squad, which is part of USA Volleyball's High Performance pipeline and is considered a second tryout for the U.S. Women's National Team, will train from June 23-29 at the American Sports Centers in Anaheim, the official host city for the U.S. Women's and Men's National Volleyball Teams. A public Red-Blue scrimmage will be hosted on June 28 in the nearby area, with more details forthcoming.

The senior-to-be took part in USA Volleyball's first tryout of 2019 at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado, back in the beginning of March as one of 218 athletes from 87 colleges.
