SEATTLE – Senior standout Chloe Loreen has been chosen to be part of the 2023 USA Volleyball Beach Collegiate National Team, a first for a Beach Dawg. Loreen is one of nine women and 10 men chosen for the National Team Development Program.
The teams will train June 11-17 at the Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center in California. 
The nine women on the team are Peri Brennan (UCLA), Alli Hansen (Grand Canyon). Xolani Hodel (Stanford), Paige Kalkhoff (Florida State), Chloe Loreen (Washington), Delaynie Maple (Southern California), Nicole Nourse (Southern California), Audrey Nourse (Southern California) and Ashley Vincent (Stanford).
The women’s team will train with co-head coaches Angie Akers and April Ross. Akers coached Ross and partner Alix Klineman to the Olympic gold medal in Tokyo. Ross competed in three Olympics (2012, ’16 and ’20) and has gold, silver and bronze medals.
Loreen and partner Natalie Robinson became the winningest duo in UW Beach Volleyball history this year, by a wide margin. They went 28-7 at the No. 1 spot, and in the fall they reached the semifinals of the first AVCA National Pairs Championship. For all of 2022-23, they won a record 42 matches. Loreen finished her career with 98 career beach wins, 92 of those at Washington. Her 62 dual wins as a Dawg are second in school history, right behind Robinson.
Also representing the Huskies in the program will be assistant coach Steve McFadden, however McFadden will be working with the men’s team, assisting Lewis men’s volleyball head coach Dan Friend.
