Madi Schreyer, sophomore pitcher ( soon to be junior) of Woodinville High School, made the Canadian Junior National team this past weekend after attending a 10 day selection and evaluation camp in British Columbia, Canada.
Madi, 16, was invited to their tryout last year as well as this year. Last summer, the then freshman, felt like she would be overextending her commitments to her travel ball team, the Washington Ladyhawks 18G team, and decided to wait it out another year.
On July 1st, after having been on the road travelling with her select team to California, Philadelphia and Colorado for nearly two weeks, Madi arrived in Cloverdale, BC, to begin her dream to play the sport she loves at a national level.
Madi's parents are both Canadian born, and she therefore has the honor of dual citizenship. She has grandparents, aunts & uncles, and cousins in both Alberta and Manitoba.
Approximately 75+ athletes , were invited or attended the evaluation camps, which were held in both Ontario & British Columbia. The selection comittee cut 56, thereby leaving 19 players to make up the Canadian Junior National Team. There are several new faces as well as returning players from last year.
The team will be travelling to Cape Town, South Africa this December to compete in the ISF Junior Women's World Championship. The team is coached by Tony Foti, Shan McDonald, Glenn Boles and Alison Bradley.
Madison is extremely honored to be able to play at a national level, in the sport that she loves representing a country of her heritage.
The Canadian Junior National Team is making their debut together this week from July 11-17th at the Canada Open (previously named the Canada Cup) at Softball City in White Rock, BC.
So far the newly named team has not lost a game and are #1 in their pool. Bracket play begins Friday.
