SPY didn’t stay for the completion of this contest between a roster of former collegiate stars and the SoCal Alliance Police Softball team.  The score was tied 1-1 at the time of our departure, thanks to a run by Jenae Leles (Arizona).  The format called for six collegians to be on the field at a time.  The roster included these college graduates:

Angela Tincher, Virginia Tech, who was 2008 collegiate play of the year

Sari-Jane Jenkins, Oregon

Amber Jackson, Maryland

Katie Crabb, Arizona State

Katie Cochran, Arizona State

Ashley Charters, Washington
