MSU well represented in International softball

Mississippi State’s softball program will be well represented this summer on the international stage.

The Amateur Softball Association (ASA) and USA Softball announced that head coach Jay Miller will return for his second year as the United States Women’s National Team head coach, while Bulldog assistant coach Karen Johns will helm the U.S. Junior National Team.

Miller will guide the U.S. squad, which includes Bulldog senior Chelsea Bramlett, beginning June 16 with a pair of exhibition games in Ohio. The Red, White and Blue will then venture to Caracas, Venezuela to defend its ISF World Championship title.

After a trek to Canada, Miller will bring the United States back home to defend its World Cup of Softball championship July 22-26 in front of a national television audience in Oklahoma City. The final event will be the Japan Cup Aug. 3-9 in Sendai City, Japan.
