With three of her future teammates currently on Game Time League rosters, Iowa incoming freshman Christina Buttenham will join the roster of the Canadian Junior Women’s National Team.

The team will play in the FIBA Americas Women’s U18 Championship at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. Team Canada will participate in training camp in Oshawa, Ontario, before the tournament, which is scheduled for Aug. 6-10.

Buttenham, a 6-foot forward from Hamilton, Ontario, was a four-time first-team all-star in high-school tournaments. Her school — St. Mary Catholic — won the Ontario Federation of School Athletics Associations Triple A or Quad A gold medal during her sophomore, junior, and senior seasons.

Buttenham has won a gold medal at the Canada Games as a member of U17 Team Ontario.
