Ex-Cats Finch, Lowe on Team USA’s 2010 softball rosterby Anthony Gimino on Jan. 11, 2010, under Sports
Softball is out of the Olympic Games, but there is still a Team USA, and that team retains an Arizona presence.
Two ex-Cats — pitcher Jennie Finch and outfielder Caitlin Lowe — were selected as one of 17 members of the 2010 U.S. national team Monday. Finch is a two-time Olympian. Lowe participated in the 2008 Games.
Arizona junior outfielder Brittany Lastrapes was chosen as one of 13 alternates, as was former UA third baseman Jenae Leles, who completed her eligibility last season. They could still make the final roster, which won’t be set until March, pending player agreement to be on the team.
Team USA will compete in the ISF Women’s World Championships from June 23-July 2 in Caracas, Venezuela, among other events.
