Cassandra Vigneau has played for the French women's national team.
When France's women's team debuted, at the 2019 European Women's Championship, the 14-year-old Vigneau not only made the team, but got the team's second win. Facing Czechia, France led 4-3 with one out in the first and runners on the corners when Vigneau relieved Emma Liminier. She retired Pavla Mikšová then Denisa Jószová hit into a two-run error before Ivana Málková grounded out. France retook the lead with a big 13-run second. In the bottom of the inning, Vigneau walked Vendula Nesvadbová, got Eva Ventrubová on a grounder, threw a wild pitch to score a run (Nesvadbová having stolen a base) and got Barbora Klečková on a fly. Johana Klimuškinová singled and Kristýna Bajerová walked then Klimuškinová was caught stealing to end the inning. Océane Godeau took over for Vigneau, who got the win. Her second outing was not as good - relieving Louise Maillard with one out in the first and a 5-0 deficit, she got a double-play grounder from Winke Verdick to escape the jam, but allowed four runs (three earned) on six walks and three hits over the next two innings (though she did strike out Andee van de Wielen and Floor Wessels) before Rosie Lyard took over. She tied for 4th in the round-robin phase in appearances. France won the event. 
Vigneau played for France in the 2021 U-18 European Women's Softball Championship.  She played for the La Vallée du Gapeau Renards in France's 3rd division in 2021, competing against the men. She was 0-1 with 5 hits, 7 walks and 12 runs (5 earned) in 3 2/3 IP, striking out one.  She was not the first Frenchwomen to compete with the men; Mélissa Mayeux had played in France's top league.
