Deberg Earns Spot on USAV Beach Collegiate National Team

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – LSU’s Kylie Deberg has earned a spot on the USAV Collegiate Beach National Team as one of the top 17 players in the nation.

She will attend a training block at the Chula Vista Elite Athlete Training Center in Chula Vista, Calif., June 12-18.

Deberg was elite during her first season in the sand after transitioning from the indoor game. Deberg earned AVCA Top-Flight status with two partners, joining teammate Kelli-Grenne Agnew as the first players to earn Top-Flight honors with multiple partners in the same season. Deberg and Greene Agnew were Top-Flight as a pair on Court, going 18-5 together. Deberg also earned the recognition with Parker Bracken on Court as they teamed up to go 14-5 together, winning their first 14 matches and earning AVCA National Pair of the Week the third week of the season.

In her first season at LSU, Deberg was critical in the Tigers’ 32-12 record, setting a new program mark for wins in a season. LSU’s 27 regular season victories were also a new program record for regular season wins.
