Lisa Sari article

Post by A_Fan on Thu Jul 23, 2009 8:33 am

I came across this article on Lisa Sari this morning and don't recall seeing it posted here previously. There is one slight error in the article, I'm sure you will be able to spot it.

Nice article. If you are talking about Bill being the coach, that's who the NCAA has listed as the coach of both teams by the NCAA in some of their record books.

That is what I was talking about, I forgot the previous discussion here about the Director being the one considered the coach by the NCAA in some cases.

I thought you were talking about
A strong presence at midfield for the Pilots, then coached by the late Clive Charles ...
Lisa came as a freshman in Fall 2003. Clive died just before that season started.

As long as we're talking about Lisa Sari ...

She did not play a glamour position, but boy was she valuable to the team. Disrupted attacks before they got started ... won way more than her share of 50-50 balls (and quite a few 10-90 balls).

She was a player whose stats did not reflect her value. During the 2005 championship game against UCLA, the Pilots' second goal arose because she won a ball at midfield and sprung Angie Woznuk on a breakaway. Angie, in turn, made a quick 180 in the box and dished to a wide-open Christine, who did what Christine does best. Lisa did not get an assist, but it was her hard work and vision that really set up the goal.

Indeed, it's plays like that that really make REAL football a game you can't look at the box score and know exactly what happened... The statistics only really display end results, not the brilliant work it takes to get there

Agreed, eProf.

And it's that reason why I really feel like of all the players the Pilots missed during their playoff run last year, Keelin Winters was the one whose absence was most keenly felt. That toughness in the middle, ability to win 50/50 balls, tireless work either pushing forward our attack or slowing down the opponents... it's gritty work and takes the right mix of attitude and physicality that not everyone posesses. Lisa Sari definitely did, and thankfully Keelin does as well.

Betsy Barr, Lisa Sari, Keelin Winters ....

Quite a string of holding mids!

Yes, but Keelin doesn't have curly hair and doesn't wear #2 (unless you interpret her number as tally marks).

The similarity of Betsy and Lisa was not lost on Erin Misaki. I was at the Pepperdine game on SoCal during the 2005 championship season. (The only draw during our undefeated regular season, as it turns out.) Erin, who lives in SoCal, came and saw the game. She noted that the similarity of playing style, hair style and uniform number between Betsy and Lisa was striking.

Not that I'm complaining about Keelin, of course. She is fabulous. Indeed, she does continue the tradition of holding mids.

I think I remember offering to pay for a perm for Keelin her freshman year.

And I think Holly Pierce can be included in that string of mids.

Lisa has logged more time on the pitch than any other Pilot (male or female) - 8100 min, 2003-6.

I cannot remember any time during her 4-year UP career when she was not on the field. Does anyone know how many minutes, if any, she spent on the bench?

From the archives, she played all but 206 minutes over the four years, missing the most her freshman year, 83 minutes, and then playing all but 20 her senior year. By then Garrett must have had full confidence in her abilities and leadership.

You mean you think He sat her for 83 minutes her freshman year because there were perhaps leadership issues? Shocked
