The pair will be joined by former Orange Becca Block ’13, Liz Hogan ’11 and Ella Simkins ’20 as well as assistant coach Kenzie Kent.
The event will include a public exhibition between the women’s national teams from England and the United States on Wednesday, Jan. 5 at 6 p.m. at the Lake Myrtle Sports Park.

Treanor and Block helped Team USA win the gold medal at the 2017 world championship. Overall, the U.S. is aiming for its fourth straight world title after winning in 2009, 2013 and 2017. The upcoming championship was originally scheduled for 2021 but was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
