In preparation for its title defense, the defending national champion Longhorns volleyball team is not taking any time off this summer. The Longhorns embarked on a trip to Europe that spanned two weeks and four countries this summer. The trip, which the NCAA permits once every four years, gave the Longhorns the opportunity to play against the top competition in Europe.
The Longhorns signed three top recruits for the 2013 season at the start of the summer. The newcomers include setter Chloe Collins, outside hitter Pilar Victoria Lopez from Puerto Rico and middle blocker Chiaka Ogbogu.
