NEW YORK, N.Y.- Former Arizona volleyball player Jennifer Abernathy will be featured in a reality television show on College Sports Television (CSTV) called "Go Pro or Go Home."
The three-part series will air Sept. 3, 10 and 17, at 5 p.m. in Tucson. CSTV is carried on channel 274 for Comcast customers, on channel 610 on DIRECTV and on channel 152 on Dish Network.
The series documents the top 16 women's collegiate senior volleyball players on and off the sand as they transition from the hard-court to the beach game during a three-day AVP Invitational Camp held last March in Manhattan Beach, Calif. The players went through drills and received instruction from three-time Olympic gold medalist Karch Kiraly, Olympic bronze medalist Holly McPeak and Olympic gold medalist Kerri Walsh.
After that weekend, AVP Pro Beach Volleyball representatives chose eight players to advance to the CSTV Collegiate Nationals in Reno, Nev. The athletes were paired up and divided into four teams. Abernathy, a third team All-American as a senior in 2005, was paired with Victoria Prince from the University of Hawaii.
The CSTV Collegiate Nationals Beach Volleyball Championships pairings included: Lauren Brewster (Notre Dame) and Jessica Veris (Washington), Jennifer Abernathy (Arizona) and Victoria Prince (Hawaii), Rachel Wagener (Maryland) and Allie Griffin (Colorado), and Paula Gentil (Minnesota) and Bibiana Candelas (USC).
After two days of competition, the final match determined who was crowned Beach Volleyball National champion and given a spot on the AVP Crocs Tour Hermosa Beach Open event last June.
