The twelve Mountain West student-athletes will travel to Venice, Italy, for two days of training sessions and participate in two more days of friendly matches before competing in the 2014 European Global Challenge. From July 13-18, the team will play against junior national teams from throughout Europe including Slovenia, Croatia, Czech Republic, Hungary and Russia, as well as club teams from Italy, Serbia, Austria and Romania.
