Two Tazewell County Softball Players Selected to Play In Italy


Two Tazewell High School softball players are selected to represent Team USA this summer.  In July, sophomore Jordan Steele and freshman Jewel Ruble are playing on America’s Team in Italy.  They’re facing other teams from across the globe in their age group. 

They say they’re honored to be picked over all the other athletes in the state.  Ruble said, “It feels amazing because you get to be treated like you’re in college already and you are just a freshman.  I’m just a freshman in high school so it’s pretty awesome.”  Both girls need $5,000 each to be able to make this happen.  If you would like to donate, you can make checks payable to Jordan Steele and Jewel Ruble.  You can send them to P.O. Box 386 North Tazewell, Va 24630.
