Rubenstein earns special invite

Three members of the Pepperdine women's volleyball squad—Julie Rubenstein, Lilla Frederick and Stevi Robinson— have been invited to take part in USA Volleyball's National Team Open Tryout from today through Sunday at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colo.

Approximately 160 athletes have been invited to the tryout, where they will compete for spots on the USA National Team, the Junior National Team and the Senior A2 Team.

Rubenstein, an Oaks Christian graduate who grew up in Camarillo, ended one of the top careers in school history last December.

The four-year starter earned AVCA All-American third-team honors in 2008 and was a fourtime All-West Coast Conference selection (including the last three years on the first team).

Rubenstein led the WCC in both kills (4.42) and points (5.14) per set in 2008. She finished her Pepperdine career third all-time with 1,743 kills.
