Candrea knows how to pick em!
University of Arizona softball players Caitlin Lowe and Alicia Hollowell will play this summer at the sport's highest level.
Lowe, who will be a junior outfielder, and Hollowell, a senior pitcher, were two of 18 players selected for the U.S. National Team, which will be led by UA coach Mike Candrea.
Two former Wildcats, both holdovers from the 2004 gold-medal winning Olympic team, are also on the team - pitcher Jennie Finch and infielder Lovie Jung.
Forty-five players competed at the camp, with 16 players selected for the elite team, which also will compete internationally this summer.
Two other former Arizona players also were chosen for that squad - outfielder Nicole Giordano (who was an alternate on last summer's Olympic team) and catcher Mackenzie Vandergeest.
