Cater, Yee to play in Puerto Rico

Delta players on Team Canada at softball's Pan-American Championship.

Two local players are among the 17 selected by Softball Canada for the national women’s team which will play at the Pan-American Championship Aug. 10-18 in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Second base Jenn Yee of North Delta and pitcher Jocelyn Cater of Delta are two of four B.C. players on the roster. Two others, Marina Demore of Richmond and Kelsey Haberl of Burnaby, also have a local connection, having played in the Surrey Storm rep program.

Sara Hopwood of Richmond and Maple Ridge native Larissa Franklin, who have played for the White Rock Renegades, are also on the Canadian team.

Yee was ranked second in the Canadian roster at the Scotiabank Canadian Open Fastpitch International Championship at Surrey’s Softball City with a .438 batting average that included one home run, a pair of doubles and six RBIs in 16 at-bats.

Cater pitched in three games, taking a loss in her only decision. She had three strikeouts in 5.1 innings pitched.

The Pan-American championship will serve as a qualifier for the World Championships in Haarlem, Netherlands in the summer of 2014. Canada will prepare for the tournament by competing in the Francisco ‘Paco’ Reyes Cup Aug. 4-9, also in Puerto Rico. They will compete against Argentina, Cuba, Peurto Rico and the United States.

Team Canada is coming off a pair of fourth place finishes at the US World Cup of Softball in Oklahoma City, and the Canadian Open.
