Several members of the team have been invited to attend the ESPY’s.  From what I can tell both Shoni Schimmel and Bria Smith will be in attendance.  Schimmel will arrive back in the States on 7/16 and will fly out to LA for the awards ceremony on 7/17.  I have read somewhere that 4 players were invited to attend, should I track down the names of the other two we will let you know.
