    Micah Christenson, Chris Lischke and Brooks Varni have been named captains of the 2015 USC men's volleyball team, Trojan head coach Bill Ferguson announced today.

    They were voted captains by their teammates at the culmination of the fall season.

    This is the second year that seniors Christenson and Lischke will serve as captains, while it is junior Varni's first season in that role.

    Christenson, who started at setter this summer for the U.S. National Team, earned All-American first team honors last season. Lischke and Varni saw significant playing time last season at middle blocker and libero, respectively.

    USC hosts Alberta in an exhibition on Dec. 31 in the Galen Center Pavilion. The Trojans then begin their 2015 regular season with a non-conference road match at Grand Canyon on Jan. 7 before opening MPSF play at home on Jan. 16 against Pepperdine.
