CBS College Sports Digs Into Beach Volleyball
CBS College Sports Network will debut two-part reality series Go Pro or Go Home Friday, May 29 at 6 p.m. ET, with the second installment airing Thursday, June 4 at 8:30 p.m.
Go Pro or Go Home goes behind-the-scenes during a special AVP Invitational Elite Camp/Combine held in Hermosa Beach, CA, for the nation’s top 16 graduating senior collegiate women’s volleyball players as they attempt to make the transition from NCAA gymnasiums to the sand.
The combine features skills instruction from top professional players including 2008 Beijing gold medalists Kerri Walsh, Phil Dalhausser, and Todd Rogers, as well as beach volleyball legend and Olympic gold medalist Karch Kiraly, and three-time Olympian Holly McPeak. It concludes with a round-robin tournament that awards the winning team a main draw berth at the AVP Crocs Riverside Open in April.
The players participating in Go Pro or Go Home are: Lori Baird (Utah), Mekana Barnes (Colorado State), Morgan Beck (California), Emily Day (Loyola Marymount), Jessica Fine (UCLA), Kiley Hall (Texas), Danielle Hepburn (Clemson), Brittany Lowe (Santa Clara), Elena Martinez (LSU), Natalie Mullikin (Wake Forest), Jessica Nyrop (San Diego), Lauren Paolini (Texas), Rachel Schwartz (Nebraska), Devon Sutherland (Cal-State Irvine), Jaimarie Sutherland (San Diego), and Bridget Wells (Tulane).
