Whitewater’s King selected for Great Britain’s Jr. Women’s Softball Team

Whitewater softball player Lauren King is headed for a fun summer, as she has been selected to play on Great Britain’s junior women’s team.

King will join the team in Clearwater, Florida in late July to play in the 12th WBSC Junior Women’s World Championship. The tournament will be a key step on the road to qualifying for the 2020 Summer Olympics in Toyko. Players on the junior team will be battling for spots with senior team players as they prepare for softball’s return to Olympic competition.

Last summer, the junior team went undefeated to win the European Junior Women’s Championship in Spain.
