Huskies Anna Brereton (Sun Prairie, Wis./Sun Prairie) and Meg Wolowicz (Manitowoc, Wis./Manitowoc Lincoln) are spending 10 days in Central Europe this summer, visiting four different countries and playing in the 2016 European Global Challenge in Pula, Croatia, on the coast of the Adriatic Sea.

Brereton and Wolowicz will play for BIP Midwest in the tournament’s U22 Division, one of 13 teams in the field, featuring some of the top players around the country and national teams from China, Croatia, England, Hungary, Italy, Russia and Slovenia.

They are following in the footsteps of teammates Paige Dacanay and Jenna Radtke, who both played for BIP Midwest last summer in the European Global Challenge.

The duo began in Budapest, Hungary (July 6-8) and will work their way to Venice, Italy (July 15-16) with stops in Maribor, Slovenia (July 9) and Pula, Croatia (July 10-14), where the three-day tournament will take place.

Brereton and Wolowicz  will share their experiences abroad with frequent blog postings.
