van Kampen Tosses Complete Game in Beijing





BEIJING -- Former University of Nevada pitcher Judith van Kampen tossed a complete game on Thursday in the Netherlands 3-0 loss to Japan during the preliminary rounds at Fengtai Softball Field.

van Kampen, who pitched at Nevada from 2003-2004, has made three appearances so far for the Dutch National Team during the Games. In seven total innings, she's yielded 10 hits and five earned runs for the Netherlands, which is winless in four games at the Olympics.

The team is coached by Liz Kelly and she is assisted by Linda Wells. In 2007, Kelly was an assistant coach at Nevada, filling in as head coach while then-coach Michelle Gardner was on maternity leave. Wells also was at Nevada in 2007 as the director of softball operations.

van Kampen won 14 games in two season at Nevada and ranks in the top five on a number of Wolf Pack single-season charts.

The Dutch return to action on Saturday when they take on Australia at 5 p.m. in Beijing (2 a.m. Pacific). The team will take on the United States on Sunday and finish play in the preliminaries on Monday against Chinese Taipei.
