MAKING THE TEAM . . . Stanford All-American setter James Shaw is one of three collegiate players to be named to the 2014 U.S. Men's National Team preliminary roster for FIVB World League competition, USA Volleyball announced this week. A Woodside native, Shaw is joined on the preliminary roster by former Cardinal All-Americans Kawika (2010) and Erik (2012) Shoji. Seven Olympians are also a part of the roster. Shaw is one of three collegians named to the training roster along with USC's Micah Christenson and BYU's Taylor Sander. All three have played internationally as part of the USA Volleyball High Performance Program, but only Christenson has played with the senior national team. Shaw just completed his sophomore season on The Farm, helping lead the Cardinal to the NCAA championship match. He was a second team AVCA All-American and a first team All-MPSF performer. He ranked ninth nationally in assists per set (10.86) and directed the Cardinal offense, which led the MPSF and was second in the nation, in hitting percentage (.334).
