TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Continuing the long tradition of Florida State Seminole softball players representing their home country, freshman Kathryn Sandercock was recently named to the USA Junior National Team and will compete throughout 2019 for the United States.
Overall, 20 members were selected to the team by members of the Women’s National Team Selection Committee (WNTSC), and these athletes will compete in select tournaments/invitational events before the final 17-player roster for the World Baseball Softball Confederation (WBSC) U-19 Women’s Softball World Cup will be finalized.
Sandercock is one of three returning members from the 2017 Junior Women’s Training Team that placed fifth at the World Cup of Softball, and Sandercock was a member of the 2017 WBSC Junior Women’s World Championship Gold Medal-winning roster. She is also one of 10 current NCAA Division I student-athletes to be selected for the training team.
Sandercock begins her career at Florida State after earning All-State and Player of the Year honors in each of her junior and senior seasons. A native of McLean, Va., Sandercock was named the 2017 Virginia Gatorade Player of the Year as a junior, and was selected to the Washington Post’s All-Met First Team in both 2017 and 2018.
The complete list of 2019 National Team events, as well as exhibition games, will be announced at a later date.
