(Trivial today? Yeah, but what the heck. I need a distraction or two today! I feel more butterflies creeping in. I fear by gametime I may be in the hospital having my stomach pumped.) pale

FANatic, I'll oblige...

50th post! I hear you on the distractions needed, the Men's game couldn't have come at better time, I was having withdrawls. I need to go play some mud football today to make it the next 12 hours... although 12 hours from now we will be in the 32nd minute and be up 5-nil... I can dream right Laughing Laughing

The U-17 and U-16 teams are traveling to South America. Michelle Olivier is on the squad for the U-17s and Cloee Colohan and Courtney Verloo are on the U-16s.

geezer,
in ur link to tinurl, it mentions that verloo plays at fc portland for her club team. let's see, there are two tualitan alum who have played/play for u of p an she plays for clive's academy in club soccer. if she is all that is being hyped, how can she not come to u of p. an a 4.0 gpa? that's what we recruit here. soccer players an intelligent students.
by the way, anyone notice in the article about lisa sari in oregonian in the last week or so it mentioned that lisa had just been to chicago on a recruiting trip? hmmm, chicago. isnt that notre dame territory?

Well if she was looking at players in Illinois, I'd keep an eye on these players on the U-16 pool:


Oliver, Emily GK 5-7 02/07/92 Flossmoor, Ill. Windy City Pride / Homewood Flossmoore HS
Oyster, Megan D 5-7 09/03/92 Naperville, Ill. Windy City Pride / Scullen MS
Quon, Rachel D 5-2 05/21/91 Lake Forest, Ill. Eclipse Select / Lake Forest HS
Rodriguez, Brianne M 5-4 03/03/91 Aurora, Ill. Eclipse Select / Waubonsie Valley

Maybe do a little research, too.

We recruit soccer players and intelligent students, but I think they do that at Stanford and a couple other places, too.
I think part of the issue is educating recruits as to the UP culture. Garrett was quoted on TV that UP isn't for everyone.

Can they play , or are they willing to play, soccer like you saw Saturday night?

A little news on Halley Kreminski--It seems she's rounding out her athletic skills by playing in the back court on her high school team this winter.

She was a Basketball all star as a soph, but didn't play last year to concentrate on soccer. Looks like now that she's sure of her soccer path, she's going to give it another go in basketball.
