The 31-year-old middle, who starred in team USA’s silver-winning side at the 2012 London Olympic Games and won bronze at the 2016 Rio Games, has been overlooked this time, with the likes of Rachael Adams, Lauren Gibbemeyer, Paige Tapp and Chiaka Ogbogu getting the nod in her position.
Robinson in as an outside
The 29-year-old opposite, who plays her club volleyball for Ageo Medics in Japan, misses out while Danielle Cuttino, Annie Drews, Karsta Lowe, Krystal Rivers and Jordan Thompson are Kiraly’s preferred opposites.
Kiraly has named Vafikbank Istanbul star Kelsey Robinson as one of his outside hitters having previously utilised the 26-year-old as a libero given the quality of hitters at his disposal.
Busy summer ahead
The squad will be trimmed down to 25 players on May 11, before Kiraly selects 14 players each week to compete in the Nations League fixtures.
