Six athletes named to selection camp in Arizona

A half-dozen local athletes will be spending a week in Tucson, Arizona next month at the 2016 Women’s National Softball Team Selection Camp.

Softball Canada named 24 players to attend to camp Jan. 2-8, and on the list are Sara Groenewegen, Holly Speers and Kyla Benz of Surrey, North Delta’s Jen Yee, and Jocelyn Cater and Kelsey Jenkins of Delta.

The national team will be selected following the camp. Team Canada will begin its summer season with a training camp June 11-17 in California, then compete at the Japan Series in Tokyo, Japan June 18-28 and the US World Cup of Softball in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma July 3-10.

The national team will be in Surrey July 15-24 for the Women’s World Championships July 15-24.

Groenewegen, Yee and Cater were members of the Canadian team which won a gold medal at the Pan-Am Games in Toronto last summer.  Groenewegen was the pitcher in Canada’s 4-2 win, while Yee played second base.
