Charters, Lawrie, Salling Continue to Shine At Canada Cup
UW's National Champion softball players Ashley Charters (Team USA), Danielle Lawrie and Jenn Salling (Team Canada) continue to represent the Huskies well at the Canada Cup international softball tournament in Surrey, B.C.
Charters helped USA stay undefeated with a 10-0 win over Canada Monday. Lawrie did not pitch in the game in which Charters singled once and doubled, scoring both times and driving in a run. The USA has since improved to 5-0 in the tournament with a win over Australia last night.
Lawrie, meanwhile, avenged her only loss of the tournament (a 1-0 extra-inning heartbreaker) by defeating Venezuela, 4-1. The senior-to-be allowed just four hits and one earned run and struck out 15 batters to give Canada a 3-2 record in the tournament. Salling helped Lawrie's cause by going 2-for-3 in the game while also going 1-for-3 with a run and an RBI in Canada's second win of the week over the Netherlands.
