Stanford junior outside hitter Jordan Ewert joins the U.S. men's junior national volleyball team for a second year at the FIVB Under-21 World Championships in Czech Republic, which begins Friday.

Ewert is one of seven players who were with the U.S. when the junior national team won the NORCECA Continental Championships that qualified the Americans for the Worlds.

The United States has never won a medal at the FIVB Men’s Under-21 World Championship. The closest it came was a fourth-place finish in 2011 when current U.S. national team players Micah Christenson and Taylor Sander were on the roster.

The best finish by the U-21 team was 11th in both 2013 and 2015.

“At the youth level, the U.S. stacks up pretty well,” U.S. coach Jay Hosack said. “The under-21 team is a completely different story. This is a group of kids who have played one to two years of college volleyball in respective gyms. In the rest of the world, players are already playing professionally. We have great talent. I think a top eight finish would be a good goal to shoot for. If we can get into the top four, it would be an outstanding finish for USA Volleyball at this level.”
