Plum junior Jordan Seneca will attend her third Queen of Diamonds national fast-pitch softball showcase Jan. 5 and 6 at Kent State University in Ohio.

Seneca also participated in Queen of Diamonds showcases in August and last January.

The Queen of Diamonds showcases are the largest fast-pitch softball showcases of their kind in the U.S. and draw athletes from more than 30 states and two Canadian provinces.

This is the 17th year for the Kent State showcase, and a sister showcase at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, S.C., enters its seventh year.

Coaches from colleges and universities in NCAA Division I, II and III; NAIA; NJCAA; and NCCAA attend the events each year.

Only about 250 players are selected to attend the showcase at Winthrop and Kent State universities out of close to 2,000 who apply.

The showcase participants are selected based on criteria ranging from ability, potential, academics, graduation year and coaches' requests and referrals.

Seneca helped the 2012 Mustangs varsity team to a 9-3 record in Section 2-AAAA (runner-up to Franklin Regional) and a WPIAL playoff appearance.
