So much of how good you are as a keeper can be attributed to your back 4 on defense. If Cloee had played a whole season, I bet Kelsey would be #1 on a few lists.

Agree up to a point. If Cloee had played all season Kelsey would have had even less to do!

No surprise that there ano defenders on the watch list. Megan Sweeney had a great college soccer career but I'd be very surprised if sahe expects to play pro soccer. I could see her being a great coach.

Is it reasonable to infer from her absence on the field for senior night that Sophie is planning to stay at UP this fall? That would make a huge difference in next year's lineup!

Looks like UNC and Santa Clara lost a lot of strength.

I thought Nikki Washington had another year at UNC. Is she leaving early?

Nikki was in the same class as Enyeart. When she tore her ACL it was after the cutoff for a medical redshirt.

So she was done.

LA Sol, runner-up last season, drafted speed and strength on the attacking end with Nogueira, Enyeart, Bosio, Washington and Dalstream, altho some will likely have to play midfield rather than forward. Kelly O'Hara joining FC Gold Pride means major competition up front for Tiffeny M. ... wonder how Tiff will fare after her good showing last season. I really hope the league hangs on and draws the fans to the games.
