Incoming Ram Farwell named to U18 national camp

By Andrea Elliott

TORONTO - Canada Basketball announced on Thursday the 20 athletes invited to the U18 women's national team invitational tryouts and training camp, which includes incoming Rams recruit Rachel Farwell.

Tryouts and training camp will run from July 14-28 at York University. Following the end of the training period, the selected team will depart for Mexico City, Mexico to begin their quest for a gold medal at the FIBA U18 Women's Americas Championship.

Last summer, Canada's junior national team earned a bronze medal at the FIBA U19 Women's Basketball World Cup in Italy under Rams head coach, Carly Clarke.

This will be Farwell's fifth national camp, having previously been invited to the U16 and U17 Canada Basketball identification camps. A native of Rothesay, N.B., Farwell is the lone maritimer named to this year's camp roster.
