Three Pacific soldiers selected to All-Army sports tryout camps

Congratulations to three Pacific-based soldiers who’ve been tabbed to attend All-Army tryout camps in their respective sports.

Analisha Rosa, a specialist assigned to Camp Zama, Japan, will head to Fort Indiantown Gap, Pa., for the All-Army women’s softball tryout camp, scheduled for Aug. 22-Sept. 14. She’ll vie for a berth on the All-Army team playing in the All-Armed Forces tournament Sept. 15-21 at Fort Sill, Okla. Should she make the All-Armed Forces team, she would play in the Amateur Softball Association’s national championship tournament Sept. 30-Oct. 2 at Oklahoma City.

On the links, Matthew Tyson, a first lieutenant at Yongsan Garrison, and Shawn Whitmore, a sergeant at Camp Humphreys, will represent South Korea at the All-Army golf tryout camp Sept. 28-Oct. 4 at Fort Jackson, S.C. Their All-Armed Forces tournament is Oct. 5-11, followed by the International Military Sports Council (CISM) tournament, each at Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Fla.
