Congratulations to former Team Rhinehart player Carly Campana!

Carly Campana decided to step away from fastpitch and pursue her goals in Ultimate Frisbee, and it has paid off for her at an early age.

Carly will be traveling with the US National team this summer to compete in the World Junior Ultimate Championships in Wroclaw, Poland. Congratulations Carly, your AB family is very proud of you!
