The USA Junior Softball Team won all four games played in an exhibition at Brookside Park in Ashland on Friday and Saturday against a team made up of former and current college players sponsored by the Ashland Elks 1360.  Two were local players who are members the Ashland University Eagles varsity.  Jennifer Moore of Hillsdale and Jerrica Young of Loudonville. 

Young says you notice a difference right away in that the players are bigger, stronger and faster than what they are used to seeing.  She also added that Jr. Team USA plays year round, where teams in this part of the country play during the season because of weather.  Moore said that in both games the USA Jr. Team threw left handed pitchers that had good ball movement, but in some cases nothing that they had not seen before.  

Junior Team USA beat the Elks by scores of 9-1 and 6-1 Friday, 9-0 and 13-4 Saturday.  The national junior team next heads to Glenville, West Virginia for more exhibition play as they prepare for the upcoming Junior Women's World Championships, where the USA is defending champs July 1st through the 7th in Brampton, Ontario, Canada.
