Iowa softball assistant coach Stacy May-Johnson helped lead the USA Softball Team to a second-place finish at the Canadian Open Fastpitch International Championship last week, according to a release.

May-Johnson batted .395 and finished the 13-game tournament on an 11-game hitting streak for the United States, which finished with a 10-3 record. She was the tournament's leading RBI producer, with 12, and added 12 runs scored, three doubles, and two home runs to her tournament résumé.

Her 15 hits and two homers were tied for the most of any player in the championship.

She also slugged .594 and posted a 1.038 OPS for Team USA, but it wasn't enough; the team fell to Japan, 7-0, in the final.

May-Johnson, Iowa's assistant coach in charge of offense, was selected for the USA roster after a four-day tryout in June. The native of Reno, Nev., played for the Hawkeyes from 2003-06 and was a three-time All-Big Ten selection, and she holds 11 Iowa offensive records.

She will return to action with Team USA from July 21-25 at the World Cup of Softball in Oklahoma City. Select games will be broadcast on ESPN, ESPN2, or ESPN3.com.
