USA Takes KFC World Cup Of Softball Title
Team USA wrapped up the KFC World Cup of Softball championship with a 5-1 win over Japan in the title game Monday night in Oklahoma City.
Former Husky Ashley Charters, a senior on the UW's 2009 World Series championship squad, helped the Americans to the victory, going 2-for-3 with a run in the final.
In the third/fourth-place game, a USA Futures team that included current Dawgs Shawna Wright and Niki Williams on its roster, beat Canada, 9-3.
Williams appeared in the game as a pinch runner while Danielle Lawrie and Jenn Salling both started for Canada. Lawrie pitched 5.1 innings, but didn't figure in the decision as the Futures team scored six runs in the seventh to win. Salling drove in a run for Canada.
In the first game of the day Monday (delayed from Sunday due to rain), Team USA beat the Futures Team, 3-0. Charters got a rest for the senior squad while both Williams and Wright started for the youngsters.
