OKLAHOMA CITY – Georgia Tech rising senior Jen Yee hit four home runs and batted .571 (8-14) as Canada won the bronze medal at the KFC World Cup of Softball presented by Six Flags held over the last week at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium.
A native of North Delta, British Columbia, Yee’s four home runs set a World Cup record. One of the round-trippers came in yesterday’s 4-1 Canada win over Japan in the bronze medal game. Yee also scored seven runs and had five RBI, five walks, a double and two home runs in the tournament.
Former Yellow Jacket Caitlin Lever is also on the Canadian National Team and recorded a couple of hits at the World Cup as Canada went 4-2. The duo are each on the roster for the Pan Am Qualifier which will take place August 4-11 in Maracay, Venezuela. Former Georgia Tech All-American and current assistant coach Aileen Morales will be on the Puerto Rican National Team at the Pan Am Qualifier as well.
