Sementelli is a veteran USA women’s national team pitcher and considered one of the best female pitchers in the world. She led Team USA to consecutive Bronze Medals in the 2008 and 2010 Women’s World Cup events.
Sailors was a new-comer to the United States women’s national team in 2010. Both Sailors and Sementelli were teammates on the women’s national team in the 2010 Women’s World Cup in Venezuela.
