Tyanna Petersen, a 2013 graduate of Osseo High School, has been selected to be a part of the USA Athletes International Softball Team that will play in Holland this summer.

Petersen, who played two years of varsity softball for the Orioles, is now attending and playing softball at St. Augustine University in Raleigh, N.C. She said getting a chance to play for the USA overseas is a dream come true.

“Playing softball has been one thing that has always been a love of mine,” she said. “Fastpitch softball has allowed me to go to college and now has given me a rare opportunity to play in Holland this summer. With just starting college and my goal to not only be successful in college softball but also academically I am unable to work and keep up with everything else. I would greatly appreciate any donation that would allow me to fulfill my dream of  playing fastpitch softball overseas.”
