Infielder Sydney Romero, who graduated from Oklahoma this spring with two NCAA championships, was among 30 softball players invited to try out for the U.S Olympic team that already has secured a spot at the Tokyo2020 Olympic Summer Games.

Romero and her older sister Sierra Romero had previously said they intended to represent Mexico. Sierra Romero, the NCAA player of the year in 2016, has been sidelined since tearing her ACL in June. Fifteen players will be selected to represent Team USA in Olympic 2020 plus three replacement players who will play during a tour prior to the Olympics.
The U.S. trials roster also includes aces Monica Abbott and Cat Osterman who won silver medals with Team USA in 2008. Osterman 36 came out of retirement last October, hoping to get a chance to play for gold. She is the lone player on the U.S. trials roster who was with the gold medal-winning U.S team at the 2004 Olympics.
Softball will return to the Olympics for the first time since 2008 next summer but is not on the slate for Paris 2024 or beyond. The United States Italy and Japan already have qualified for the six-team Tokyo Olympic 2020 field.
