Ciao from Canada 7/21: Greta Cecchetti's Final Blog With Team Italy
Unfortunately our adventure is over here in Whitehorse since we lost the game against Canada and didn't qualify for the next round. After the exciting win against New Zealand we had to win one more game in order to qualify for the playoffs, but Team Canada came out strong and showed great power in the box and won 8-0 in five innings. According to the rules of the tournament we ended up ranked in 10th place.
Now we have a few days left here. We did some shopping yesterday and the team went for a tour of a natural park 30 minutes away from where we are staying. We are also going to go watch the semifinals tonight and tomorrow. It's absolutely amazing softball!! I feel very lucky and honored to have had the chance to participate in such a great competition! My team and I had a really great time!!
Thanks again for your support!! I will see you soon in Corpus!!
