For the second straight season, Princeton libero Tony Ensbury has been named to the Men's Junior National Volleyball Team, it was announced by USA Volleyball. He will be part of the team that will represent the United States at the FIVB Volleyball Men’s U21 World Championship and the U21 Pan American Cup.

"We are extremely proud of Tony being selected to USA Junior National Team," head coach Sam Shweisky said. "He has worked tirelessly to prepare himself to make this roster and we could not be happier for him. Good luck to Tony and Team USA as they head to Turkey later this summer. Go for the gold!"

Ensbury, a rising junior, has been a two-year starter at libero for Princeton, which has made the EIVA playoffs in each of his two seasons. He averaged more than two digs per set last season and helped the Tigers earn victoies over ranked teams in UC Santa Barbara (No. 12) and Harvard (No. 14).

Ensbury was part of the 2012 squad that won the NORCECA Men’s Junior Continental Championship in Colorado Springs. Seven of his teammmates from that group will return this summer to compete for Team USA at the U21 Pan American Cup on July 12-20 in Costa Rica. In August, the team will reconvene at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs to train for the FIVB Volleyball Men’s U21 World Championship held in Ankara and Izmir, Turkey from Aug. 22-Sept. 1.
