Not much for halving 25 girls on the team but only dressing 18 for each game. What does that do for morale? I know it happens when there is travel (i.e. airline tickets for tournaments, etc) involved but for confer. games. Do other teams do this?

There are soem very talented SC girls that are 10th and 11th graders. Would be nice to see a recruiting effort to keep some of them in state.

In most cases all the players will dress out for home games. Due to expenses, limited players that travel. The players do know it up front and need to fight for those travel spots, and they do change.

I agree with Big Daddy. Too many talented SC girls leave the state (especially from York county). Wouldn't Winthrop look better with Ashley Sheets, Newminster, Taylor Parker, Alex Ramsey, Abby McDonald, etc...?

cid,

I wouldn't give Winthrop a hard time on missing out on most of the girls you mention. Sheets is at West Point, that's an entirely different college experience. Parker and Ramsey are looking at big-time SEC schools, where the seats are full for college football and college basketball games. Newmister is all about the academic experience. If she were to stay in-state it probably would have been Furman.

Abbie McDonald (Fort Mill/Charlotte Soccer Academy) and Jordan Allen (Clover/CESA Premier), these are two York County seniors, who are playing in the R3PL, that Winthrop should probably be looking at.

You know, I hear from Winthrop people over and over on both the boys side and the girls side that in state kids don't want to play at Winthrop.

I don't agreee with that at all. I think kids want to be wanted. Winthrop is a good school, with very good facilities and its D1. Is it ACC or SEC? No. But its a D1 school.....and the vast majority of kids aren't going to go to an SEC/ACC school, at least as soccer players.

Some very, very good players went to C of C this year as freshman.....not exactly USC or Clemson or Wake.

If WInthrop wants these kids they need to identify them and go after them. Make sure that the kids know......that they're wanted. There are some pretty good York county girls who are juniors this year whose parents have flatout told me their kids want to go to Winthrop and they want to play. And they aren't totally sure that the Winthrop coaches know who they are or who their kids are. These are ODP, R3PL level players.....and their parents don't think the coaches know their kids.
