COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - UCLA women's volleyball assistant head coach Kim Jagd has been named to the 2008 U.S. Women's Junior National Team coaching staff as announced by USA Volleyball.

The Junior National Team will compete at the NORCECA U-20 Continental Championship July 20-28 in Saltillo, Mexico.
