Team Canada Takes Silver at Pan American Games
The Canadian softball team, led by UW sophomore Victoria Hayward and former Husky star Jenn Salling, had a great run at the Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico before falling to the USA Softball Women's National team in the gold medal game, 11-1. They advanced to the final game after defeating Cuba 4-0 earlier in the day. Team Canada had a strong start to the contest, immediately putting a runner in scoring position when Melanie Matthews reached base on a walk before stealing second, but the team wasn't able to advance any more runners in the first inning after Jen Yee also reached base on a walk. Canada tied the game 1-1 in the top of the second when Hayward drove in Heather Ebert with an RBI base hit. Canada put two more runners on base with one out in that inning, resulting in a pitching change for the US, but they were not able to make any more serious threats the rest of the game. The Canadian National softball team comes away from the Pan Am games with a silver medal and a 7-3 overall tournament record.
