2017 Season

Post by SouthCarolinaPilot on Wed Jun 07, 2017 6:10 pm

2017 women's soccer schedule is out! This looks pretty challenging. It will be a good way to see if the women's team will be able to compete with some of the big schools again. I love getting all of the Oregon schools at home. I also love the games against NC State, Florida, and Baylor. I am also thankful to see the Santa Clara and BYU games are at home.

I'm thrilled that the schedule creates only one conflict for me. Last year there were four. Now I can try to learn the skill levels of players I barely got to see last season.

You'd have to think that a substantial number of the 82 coaches ranked ahead of the incumbent would jump at a chance to move to the Bluff. New blood on the bench seems to have benefited the men's program just a wee bit.

Seems we have replaced Angela Harrison as an assistant coach with alumnus Miguel Guante.

Clickbaity article from the Oregonian about which Oregon athlete wore numbers 00-99 best.

Just sharing here because it's somewhat soccer related and the forum has been in a lull lately. Kasey Keller got honorable mention at No. 1. Megan Rapinoe wins No. 3 (over Cliff Robinson, Clive Charles, Joey Harrington, CJ McCollum and others!). Christine Sinclair wins as a Thorns player at No. 12 (over LaMarcus Aldridge). Terry Porter, of course, gets No. 30.

Is it soccer season yet?

I think it was mentioned earlier that she transferred.

Really interested to see what Chris Henderson thinks the upcoming season will look like for the WCC. I think he believes Santa Clara and BYU will be too tough to beat. They are definitely both top 25 teams.

We can certainly hope for a good season and maybe make the playoffs, right?

We can *hope* for anything. What can we *expect*? I'll be very surprised (but delighted) if they achieve a spot in the NCAA tournament. I expect more of what we saw last year: struggling to win against the bottom half of the league and getting dominated by the best teams.

Ariel Viera shows up on the roster this year. Isn't she the really quick player who gave up soccer last year to concentrate on running? If so, she should help us this year. She brought pace off the bench as opponents were tiring.

I believe you are thinking of Parkes Kendrick, who graduated (as valedictorian!) in 2017. She helped the women's XC team make nationals for the first time in the fall of 2016, but was forced to miss the NCAA championships because her Rhodes Scholarship interview was on the same day and they wouldn't reschedule. Still pretty annoyed about that.

Ariel was a mainstay in the starting lineup her first three seasons but took a medical redshirt last year. She is back for her senior year.

Right. Thanks for setting me straight. Too bad Parkes isn't available, but I do remember Viera as a quick and effective fullback.

My pre-season simulation has the Pilots ending the season at #57 in the ARPI rankings and coming in tied for 3rd in the WCC. And, it has them getting an at large selection to the NCAA Tournament, by the skins of their teeth.

I suspect that's pretty optimistic.
