Camp Rosters

Presumably you've already seen the Storm's training camp roster. Other rosters are slowly but surely trickling in, and it's always fun to see the players who have been invited to camp.

How about some Storm ties? You already know the big names - 2004 Champs Tully Bevilaqua and Sheri Sam are both in Indiana. Amanda Lassiter is back for another season in Chicago. Ashley Battle emerged as a rotation player last year in New York, where she teams with Lake Washington product Cathrine Kraayeveld.

There are plenty of players with Storm ties who have been invited to camps, however. In Chicago, Cisti Greenwalt - traded to the Sky for Ashley Robinson, but immediately cut - gets a chance to make the roster this time around. Mandisa Stevenson, who was with the Storm briefly in 2005, is back in Phoenix, where she played two games last season. Rita Williams is in camp in Washington. Williams, a reserve guard for the Storm in 2003, was cut by the Mystics after attending camp last spring.

From the believe it or not file, rumor in Houston has it Edna Campbell is in Comets camp. Campbell retired after the 2005 season and spent part of last year as a color analyst on San Antonio TV broadcasts.

As far as other Seattle ties, Sheila Lambert, the Chief Sealth product who was out of the league last year, is trying to hook on with the Sparks.
