Nyree White, Daughter of Mike White, Named to New Zealand National Team Roster

Nyree White, the twenty-four year old daughter of Oregon head coach Mike White, has been named to the New Zealand national team roster for a dozen-day-long tour of Japan later this summer.

at Stanford.
The younger White, a former Division 1 pitcher for the Stanford Cardinal, is one of twenty-two rostered players for the White Sox' Japan tour. She joins former Wisconsin pitcher Taylor Paige-Stewart and former West Texas A&M star Rita Hokianga, among others, on the team's pitching staff.

Among the team's position players are former Delaware and professional player Lara Andrews and Florida State's Ellie Cooper.

Nyree White will follow in her father's footsteps by suiting up in the circle in international competition; Mike White, a New Zealand native, is a member of the International Softball Congress Hall of Fame. After becoming a United States citizen in the early 1990s, Mike White joined the US men's national fastpitch team and helped that team earn a bronze medal in the 2000 World Championships.
