Three local softball players have been invited to a Softball Canada selection camp June 15-22 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Twenty-six players have received an invitation to the camp, from which a women’s national team will be selected to compete at three major international tournaments.

Among them are infielder Jen Yee of North Delta, outfielder Melanie Matthews and infielder Kelsey Bryant of Surrey.

Bryant, 21, is a graduate of Sullivan Heights Secondary and will be at her first national team camp.

Both Yee and Matthews have been national team veterans since 2008, when they played at the Olympic Summer Games in Beijing, China.

Seventeen players from the camp will form the national team which will play at the US World Cup of Softball in Oklahoma City June 28 to July 2, the Canadian Open Fastpitch International Championship July 4-9 at Softball City in Surrey, and the Women’s World Championship July 13-22 in Whitehorse.
