Sorry to see her go.

Every year is a new season and a new team. Go Pilots!

It is my understanding that Cloee has enrolled at BYU, but is not listed on their 2012 roster.

The common thought on this from friends is that she is sitting out a year and working on her academics.

Sounds like a classic case of burn out, can be pretty common for players who live and breathe soccer for a long period of time at the same time sacrificing the rest of their lives... Hopefully she can spend some time figuring things out and re-kindling her love of the game, or perhaps making the decision that it just isn't that important to her. Either way, as with all departing Pilots I wish her the best...

(Unless, of course, she ever puts on a jersey facing us.)

From the BYU website:

Getting To Know: Cloee Colohan
Whitney Craft Jordan | BYU Athletic Communications | Posted Jun 6, 2012 2:34 PM | Updated Jun 6, 2012 2:41 PM
(Photo by BYU Design/Jeff Wood)

Junior-to-be Cloee Colohan is a transfer midfield/defender from the University of Portland. She grew up in West Point, Utah.

Birthday: June 1, 1991

Hometown: West Point, Utah

Family: Debbie and Kevin Colohan (parents) ... three older siblings

Major: Business

So, why transfer?
"Probably the biggest reason I decided was to transfer was the lifestyle. It's sometimes hard for people that aren't LDS to understand but being in Portland, in the way of LDS standards, was hard. I knew that going into it when I decided to go to Portland but I didn't think it'd get to a point that I wouldn't be able to handle it anymore."

What was it like playing at Portland, a soccer powerhouse?
"Soccer was great at Portland and I enjoyed my years there. I sat out my freshman year but played the next two."

How did the transfer happen?
"I came home last Christmas break and usually am really excited to get back to Portland, because I loved it, but this time I wasn't. For some reason I just had this weird feeling that I didn't want to go back. And when Portland had played BYU in the fall I didn't play because I was hurt, but I still came and saw what BYU was all about. I saw how they were as a team, and I knew I wanted to be a part of that. So, after Christmas, I got back to Portland and I struggled. I knew I couldn't stay so I talked to my coach and decided to go. The next day I was on a flight to Utah, without even knowing if I could play at BYU or not. It was a huge leap of faith."

Did you know any girls on BYU's team before you came here?
"I knew Niki Fernandes really well. Her parents and mine went to school together, and ever since we were kids we'd played sports together and been friends. I also knew Lindsi Lisonbee because we had played club together, and because she had originally committed to Portland too. I played with Colette Jepson on our club team too, and Carlee Payne and I had played on the regional team a long time ago so I knew a few of the girls."

What do you think about BYU's team this season?
"Honestly, there is so much talent on this year's team. There are so many girls on this team that are so talented and play soccer so well. I think our chances of getting into the playoffs this year are really good."

The Only Choice, Really

Post by DoubleDipper on Wed Jun 20, 2012 2:14 pm

I admire Cloee for making the right choice, and the best choice, for Cloee.

She followed her heart AND her head!

Yeah I mean you can't really blame her, the LDS way of life would be particularly difficult to lead when not surrounded by fellow members of that congregation. Sounds like she DID leave for the right reasons. I wish her the best personally, but only a little bit as far as play on the pitch goes Razz

Fair enough. But her departure (combined with MO graduating) leaves a massive hole in the middel of the defense. Biggest question going in to the season is who plays there.

In the Spring games it was Lorielle and Sarah for the most part.

Does anyone know what this means: "being in Portland, in the way of LDS standards, was hard"? Specifically, what does "LDS standards" mean?

Um, just a guess, but it has got to be a "personal" thing as there are is a large number of fine citizens of the LDS faith living in the Portland area. I've personally worked and played with many Mormons who have never expressed a concern (to me) about Portland being a difficult place to express their faith or live by the principles of their faith.

I guess one would have to interview a few folks at the Portland Temple (in Lake Oswego) to find a better answer from someone who knows these things firsthand.

I suspect that it refers more specifically to the Portland campus life. The LDS faith has very strict codes regarding drinking and sexual activity, that are probably often not met on the UP campus. Just my guess.

Good point! There is little time for a student/athlete to interact with anyone beyond the campus during the school year -- except, of course, if that is the only way to practice one's faith in a church setting.

scratch Sex and alcohol on campus? Well, back in the '60's .......... study
