Thompson and Team USA Drop Opener
Courtney Thompson and her Team USA teammates lost their FIVB World Grand Prix Pool A opening match today against Germany by a 3-0 count.
Thompson, a 2006 UW grad, came off the bench in the second set with the Americans trailing and then started the final set but Team USA was unable to turn things around against the Germans, falling 25-15, 25-15, 25-16. Thompson wound up leading the team in set attempts with 39 and had the second-most digs on the team with seven. Assist totals were not included in post-match results.
