Mary Pavlovich has helped the Bucknell University women's softball program rebuild during the past two NCAA Division I seasons.
Now, the Richland High School graduate will join four of her Bison teammates on the international stage during the USA Athletes International tour of Australia next month.
Pavlovich recently completed her sophomore season as a third baseman at Bucknell.
"I honestly don't know what to expect," said Pavlovich, a second-team All-Patriot League selection this year and a National Fastpitch Coaches Association scholar-athlete All-American as a freshman. "I do expect the competition to be pretty good. I'm sure I will learn something from going over there. Playing against girls from another country will be a great experience.
