A number of current, former, and future USC volleyball players have had success in recent international beach volleyball competitions, this summer.
Incoming Trojan freshmen Lucas Yoder and Sara Hughes both won bronze medals with their partners at the FIVB U19 World Championship in Porto, Portugal, that concluded July 14. Each duo lost in the semifinals to the eventual gold-medal team.
Yoder, who will play with the USC men's indoor team, is a 2013 All-CIF Division I first team outside hitter from San Clemente (Calif.) High whose father (the late Dave Yoder), uncle (All-American Bob Yoder) and cousins (Erin and Paul) all have played at USC.
