    Trlicek, Cottrill & Echols Continue Play with U-19 WNT

    The trio helped the Red, White and Blue to a 4-1 record, with wins over France, 11-2 and 7-0, and Ireland, 13-0. The squad also split a pair of games with Japan as they lost the opening game 3-0, but then rebounded to win 1-0 the next day. The U-19 WNT has outscored opponents 60-10 so far this summer.

    Next up is a pair of exhibition games in Atlanta at the Robert E. Heck Softball Complex against the Georgia Impact and Birmingham Thunderbolts club teams. Afterwards the U-19 WNT will then compete in the USA Softball International Cup in Columbus, Ga. from July 1-7, at the South Commons Softball Complex.

    Cottrill went 2-for-2 in Team USA's 11-2 win over France. The Stillwater, Okla. native drove in a run with an RBI single to right field to help give the Red, White and Blue 7-0 lead in the first inning. She then went on to produce an RBI double to center field that extended the lead out to 9-0 in the second inning.

    In the league games, Cottrill is batting .200 and Echols .231
    Non-league games Cottrill is batting .273 and Echols .700

    Considering that league games involve national teams and non-league games involve professional teams, can we assume that they will do better against SEC pitching? Or is it not so clear cut?

    Sample size is very small to begin with.....so not much to take from it. I would say you are generally assured of facing quality pitching vs pro teams and international play is often a mixed bag.
