More than 6,000 miles from home, junior softball standout Alexis Clancy of Notre Dame Academy ran into former Notre Dame Academy catcher Olivia Lee in Italy.
Clancy, a pitcher, was playing for Ireland in the U19 European Championship and the U22 competition in Slovakia. Lee was playing for Britain.
The two teams played five times over two weeks. Ireland ended up with a silver medal in Italy and a bronze in Slovakia.
