BYU Coming to the WCC

Post by pms275 on Tue Aug 31, 2010 5:00 pm

Looks like everything but football is joining the WCC next year. It will be interesting to have another good women's soccer program in the conference.

What's going to happen to their softball, swimming (M + W) and track 9 (M+W) programs?

Baseball, Volleyball, M/W Basketball, M/W CC, M/W Golf, W Soccer and M/W Tennis are all making the transition to WCC. Don't know about the sports you mentioned, but there is a press conference tomorrow that will probably answer that question.

Wow, at least at first glance, it seems like that would be a very good thing for women's soccer.

PS -- It's not near April 1, is it?

BYU Soccer in the WCC? Yes! I think the conference will benefit. They're huge! How many students larger are they than the average WCC school? Double the # of student in most cases, right?

It'll be very interesting to see Lindsi Lisonbee play at Merlo. She was a very highly rated recruit that changed her commitment from UP to BYU. In fact, I think she was supposed to be in the same incoming class as Cloee...who also is from Utah.

She's a 5'10" defender and has a very credentialed resume...

Defender
5-10, So.
Park City, UT - Park City HS

At BYU
FRESHMAN - (2009): Started and played in 24 games for the Cougars ... took seven shots on the season as a defender ... netter one goal in BYU's shutout win over Air Force ... named to the 2009 MWC All-Tournament Team and 2009 All-Conference Second Team ... 2009 NCAA Division I All-Pacific Region Third Team ... 2009 TDS Freshman Second Team of the season ... played on the U-20 National Team during spring of 2010.

Before BYU
Parade All-American 2008 ... NSCAA Youth All-American 2006, 2007 ... Top Drawer Soccer top 15 recruit 2009 ...U18 National Team Player Pool 2008...

I'm pretty sure that BYU does not play on games on Sundays. Does that mean that we'll have a Thursday-Saturday weekend when they come to town?

Zaninovich said he had a mockup of a 9-team schedule ready to show BYU. It might have been for basketball but the principles would be the same for soccer, so this has probably been worked out. If BYU is the only team coming that weekend it could be just Friday or Saturday.

If you were wondering, BYU men's soccer is a club sport and they compete in the PDL (the level the Timbers U-23s played).

Nice article about how the move to the WCC affects BYU women's soccer:

http://www.deseretnews.com/article/700062128/Move-to-WCC-has-BYU-coaches-cautiously-optimistic.html?s_cid=rss-28

The coach is saying all the right things, at least.

Interesting that the coach said they are scheduled to play UP in 2012.

Not 2011?
