Charters Picked For USA National Team Selection Camp
Dec. 4, 2009
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. - Recent Washington graduate Ashley Charters was one of 31 athletes who have accepted an invitation to the 2010 USA Softball Women's National Team Selection Camp in Chula Vista, Calif., Jan. 4-8, the Amateur Softball Association of America (ASA) and USA Softball announced today.
The 17-member team plus alternates selected from this camp will represent USA Softball during the 2010 season. Charters was named to team USA last year after leading the Huskies to the NCAA Championship and competed for the Red, White and Blue in the Canada Cup, Japan Cup and World Cup of Softball.
Charters was a three-time All-American for the Huskies, including earning First Team honors her senior year. She capped off her career by leading UW to a 2-0 sweep over Florida in the best-of-three championship series at the Women's College World Series last June. The Beaverton, Ore., native was named to the Women's College World Series All-Tournament team after batting .476 in six games.
A three-time All-Region and four-time All-Pac-10 selection, Charters graduated as Washington's all-time leader in stolen bases and triples and also broke Washington's single-season hits record which had stood since 1993.
The schedule of events for the 2010 USA Softball season will be announced at a later date at www.usasoftball.com.
