The debut of the highly anticipated Bound 4 Beijing tour is hours away as the USA Softball Women’s National team competes against the University of Arizona tonight at 7:00 p.m./CT.
Four former Wildcat players returning to their alma mater include, Jennie Finch, Alicia Hollowell, Lovieanne Jung, and Caitlin Lowe, but the most significant University of Arizona tie is Mike Candrea, who took a leave of absence from his head coaching position to lead the US Olympic team. When these two teams last met four years ago, during the Aiming for Athens tour, the United States defeated the University of Arizona 6 – 1 behind Jennie Finch, who allowed only one hit, a homerun courtesy of Kristie Fox.
