Maryland volleyball is set to embark on a 12-day training tour to Europe in which it’ll play four exhibition games, the team announced Tuesday. Leaving May 27., the Terps will travel to Croatia, Italy and Slovenia.

“We are thrilled to take our first-ever foreign tour this summer in Europe,” head coach Adam Hughes said in a release. “A lot of work went into making this trip possible, including the support of our administration and those who helped donate to make this trip come to life. The foreign tour will be a fantastic opportunity for our student-athletes to see volleyball across the globe while also taking in such a powerful cultural experience.

Maryland is looking to improve on last year’s 16-16 record, but will be without the program’s all-time leader in blocks, Rainelle Jones, who graduated after a record-setting five years with the Terps.

“I can speak on behalf of our entire program that we’re grateful for all those who helped make this trip possible, and we’ll be taking full advantage of such a wonderful opportunity,” Hughes added.
