Incoming Princeton women’s basketball freshman Vanessa Smith is one of eight current and former collegians heading to play in Ukraine with Athletes in Action from June 21-July 3. The squad will play three games, facing the junior and senior national teams and a university team.
The youngest member of the Ukraine trip, this will be the first overseas playing experience for Tiger guard.
With Athletes in Action, a faith-based organization, the group will help run a youth tournament as part of a service component to their trip.
To follow Smith’s journey, Athletes in Action will be tweeting and blogging throughout the trip.
