COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (May 30, 2007) - Kim Glass (Outside Hitter, Lancaster, Pa.) and Norisha Campbell (Middle Blocker, Lakeland, Fla.) have been added to the U.S. Women's National Team roster, according to head coach "Jenny" Lang Ping. In addition, Marcie Hampton (Outside Hitter, Gainesville, Fla.) joined the team on May 23 after being selected for a spot at the U.S. Women's National Team Tryouts.
 
Glass, a three-time American Volleyball Coaches Association All-American and four-time All-Pac-10 pick, is Arizona's career leader in kills with 2,151 and ranks third all-time in the Pac-10 in the same category. She averaged 5.27 kills, 2.84 digs, 0.70 blocks and 0.40 aces per game for the Wildcats.
 
For her career, Glass had double-digit kills in 105 of her 115 matches played, along with 20 or more kills 54 times en route to a school-record 5.27 kills per game average. She holds the Arizona school record with 162 aces, and is third in career digs with 1,158. Glass provided 77 block solos, which ranks eighth all-time for the Wildcats.
 
As a senior in 2005, Glass was selected AVCA All-America First-Team in leading Arizona to a fourth seed in the NCAA Tournament. She was tabbed AVCA All-America Second-Team and AVCA National Freshman of the Year in 2002. Glass was honored as a AVCA All-American Third Team as a sophomore in 2003.
 
Glass is no stranger to international competition as she was a member of the U.S. Women's Junior National Team that competed in the 2001 FIVB World Junior Championships. She also participated on the U.S. Women's Junior National Team at the 2002 NORCECA Continental Women's Junior Championships.
 
Glass played for Corozal in Puerto Rico's Super League. She led the league in kills during the regular season and led her team to the tournament semifinals.
 
Campbell, a two-time AVCA All-East Region selection, compiled 1,319 kills at Florida State from 1998-2001. She added 368 total blocks, including 90 solo blocks. Campbell provided the Seminoles with a .331 attack percentage during her career, including an Atlantic Coast Conference leading .366 mark as a senior. She was honored as an All-ACC First-Team selection twice in her career. Campbell was included on the Atlantic Coast Conference 50th Anniversary Volleyball Team announced in 2002.

Outside of the United States, Campbell played professionally on the Rote Raben Vilsbiburg Club in German this past spring.
 
Hampton, an AVCA All-South Region honorable mention pick as well as All-SEC Second-Team for the second consecutive year, averaged 3.35 kills with a .222 attack percentage, 3.35 digs and 0.59 blocks per game. During the 2006 season, Hampton became the fastest player in school history to reach 1,000-career digs and the only player in Florida history to record 300 digs in their first three seasons. Hampton recently became the seventh Gator to ever reach the 1,000-kill, 1,000-dig club and is one of only three players to amass at least 300 kills in their first three seasons.
 
Hampton has previously participated with USA Volleyball on numerous occasions, including playing with the National Team in the summer of 2005 as well as stints with the U.S. Women's A2 Team in 2006 and the Junior National Team in 2004-05 and 2001-02.
