Summertime Volleyball News -- THURSDAY CARDINAL COUPLE

Summertime Volleyball News

(Not many better middle blockers than Anna Hall)

For a pair of Louisville volleyball alums, the volleyball life continues on. Anna Stevenson Hall and Tori Dilfer-Stringer were both recently named to the 30-player Women's National Team roster for the 2023 Volleyball Nations League USA Volleyball.

Most recently. both alums have spent time playing professionally overseas. This duo saw many matches together at Louisville, both transferring into Louisville for the final college years, and helped lead Louisville to the program's first ever Final Four.

From their time in Louisville, then Tori Dilfer and then Anna Stevenson, were both named All-Americans and have their names on the wall inside L&N FCU Arena.

(Set 'em up, Tori ! No one did it finer)

Volleyball Nations League is an annual international indoor volleyball tournament. The world's top 16 teams will compete against each other that features each team playing four matches per week for three weeks. Following the conclusion of the preliminary rounds, the top eight teams will advance to the finals.

This year, the VNA will be held at College Park Center in Arlington, Texas. Team USA will qualify for the finals by being the host.

Team USA will face Serbia, Italy, Korea, Turkey, Croatia, Thailand, Japan, Brazil, Poland, Bulgaria, Germany, and China.

Happy Thursday and Go Cards!


  1. Great stuff on two all-time volleyball stars.

    Found this buried in WBB News. Seems the Cards WBB squad just might be entertaining a Wildcat: Kennedy Cambridge would have three years, and her younger sister was the Tennessee High School Athlete of the Year, so that could bode well for future recruiting. Her lil sis is a Dana Evans type guard.

    A four-star recruit out of Nashville (Tenn.) Ensworth, Cambridge helped lead her high school team to three state titles and win Miss Basketball in Tennessee before committing to Kentucky over Auburn and Ole Miss.

    Sounds like she could help a team and still has three seasons of eligibility left so could grow to develop in Cards program. The Cats only started her once. When Louisville played UK last year, she saw 13 minutes...had three rebounds and three assists, and one basket.

    It would also be a nice asset towards recruiting her top ranked lil sis.

  2. And, the above is an example of the "spam" we have o put up with daily here. This "Canada PR News" slipped through our blockers somehow. As I like to do sometimes, I will send them an invoice for advertising here. lolol.

    Morons, they're everywhere!!!
