HAARLEM, Netherlands – The California softball program was well-represented at the 2014 International Softball Federation (ISF) World Championships. Valerie Arioto (2008-12) and Jolene Henderson (2010-13) captured silver with the USA Softball Women’s National Team, while senior Britt Vonk finished sixth with her Dutch Softball squad.

Arioto and Henderson went 9-2 with Team USA after falling to Japan twice, including a 4-1 loss in the gold-medal game. It was the second consecutive world championships in which the Japanese defeated USA, also winning in 2012 on top of capturing the final Olympic gold medal in softball in 2008. Team USA finishes its 2014 run with a 28-6 overall record.

First baseman Arioto capped her summer as the team’s leader in home runs (11), RBIs (42), runs (35), and walks (35). She went 29-for-76 overall for a .382 average through 30 games.

Henderson compiled a 2-1 record at the ISF Championships, plus a save, to bring her to a 9-3 record for the summer. She recorded 53 innings in the circle, which was second behind Jessica Moore’s 55.2. Henderson tallied 10 starts in 18 appearances, allowing 41 hits with 21 runs to finish with a 2.377 ERA.

Vonk and the Netherlands earned their third consecutive playoff spot (2010, 2012, 2014) and claimed sixth after losing to Australia 8-0 in five innings. Despite the loss, Vonk still enjoyed a successful summer with the Dutch, playing in every game to help the team to a 5-4 record at the ISF Championships.
