OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. ?- Arizona softball players Caitlin Lowe, Alicia Hollowell and Kristie Fox are among the list of athletes who USA Softball announced have been invited to its upcoming selection camps for the 2006 USA Softball Women’s National Team and the 2006 World University Games team.

 

Lowe and Hollowell who played for the U.S. National Team this past summer, are two of just six current collegiate student-athletes to be invited.  Fox was asked to try out last year, but declined, as she had surgery performed on her right arm.

 

In addition to the trio of current Wildcats, xx former UA greats were also invited to the Women’s National Team Camp.  The list includes Jennie Finch, Lovie Jung, Toni Mascarenas and Mackenzie Vandergeest.

 

A total of 30 players have been selected to attend the Women’s National Team Camp including the 26 member National Training Team selected back in September of last year. The invitees for the USA Softball Women’s National Team Selection Camp are listed below:
