    It's a young team but not as young as it could be. Three high school kids (possibly more, I don't recognize some of the names). Two of these kids are impressive ball handlers, in their age group, but not particularly quick on the feet.

    I'll be interested to hear how the young girls do, and the rest of the team

    I guess they suffered a 2-0 loss to the Irish Junior squad. Rough start?
    It seems Canada is in a continuous cycle of "building year".
    I think this selection process has been good, and I like the addition of the youth. When the argies created their dynasty, they had Sole playing on the Junior National team when she was 14 and Seniors not much after that. Not that I'm comparing Canada to Argentina. :)
    Good to see Hunt back to restore some stability after losing more then half the teams starters.
    Best of luck girls!
