Cori Enghusen, Lindsey Yamasaki Travel To Colorado Springs For World University Games Training Camp
Aug. 2, 2001
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - Stanford University seniors-to-be Cori Enghusen (Bothell, WA/Inglemoor HS) and Lindsey Yamasaki (Oregon City, OR/Oregon City HS) are among the 13 top collegiate players who will travel to Colorado Springs to prepare for the 2001 World University Games in China later this month.
The 6-foot-7 Enghusen has already locked up a spot on the 12-player World University Games roster. Enghusen was one of 11 players awarded roster spots after a four-day training camp in Colorado Springs on May 19-22.
Yamasaki, a 6-foot-1 guard/forward, travels to Colorado as one of two players battling for the 12th and final roster spot. The two-time Honorable Mention All-Pac-10 selection received a medical exemption from the May training camp because of a foot injury, and will now battle Wisconsin guard Tamara Moore for the right to compete in China. Washington's Loree Payne was also a finalist for the 12th spot, but has withdrawn because of tendinitis in her foot.
The squad will work out at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs from August 6-11, with the last roster spot being finalized on August 8. The U.S. travels to China on Sunday, August 12, and will tune up for the World University Games with a four-team round robin tournament against Australia, Canada and China on August 14-16 in Zhangjiagang.
Following the warm-up tournament, the United States will train in Beijing from August 18-21 to prepare for the 19-team World University Games in that city on August 22-30.
