"I am extremely proud to have Team Cardinal represented amongst the top 30 junior players in the country," said Bustin. "Natasha and Lara have worked extremely hard to be recognized and to earn the opportunity to train amongst our nation's best and to vie for a position within our junior squad. I feel it is important to the future of our success to have our young student-athletes exposed to a high level of intensity and competition. With selections occurring at the end of this training week, the daily level of intensity will be awesome. This is such a great preparatory experience to their first college preseasons!"
