Nunez is one of 16 softball student-athletes, along with five coaches, selected from 12 NJCAA member colleges.

This year’s tournament will take place in Surrey, British Columbia, July 3 – 13.
“This is a great honor for Carah,” said San Jacinto College Softball Hall of Fame Head Coach Kelly Saenz, who just completed her 12th season at the helm of the San Jac program. “This is a great way for her to gain additional exposure in front of four-year coaches, as well as play against some of the top talent in North America.”
