And looks like PSU is doing the same. Great player having a great first year.
I’ve heard the HC at Spalding is leaving after this year to run Integrity full time anyway. My daughter is freshman at another AA school and I was surprised how many Integrity freshmen were on Spalding V and got significant play time when they played each other last week. Looks like HC is putting things in place for her benefit before she leaves. The girls are decent but not IAAM V level yet. Lucky break for them but probably why they are struggling. Their bench was entirely too big and barely any subbing. Didn’t make any sense. Best part is we beat them for the first time in 10 years so lucky break for us too. I’m sure parents will see through what is happening at Spalding and make decisions accordingly.
Keep hearing how STM is unstoppable in the IAAM A conference is this true? Didn't they lose to Maryvale and close games with Spalding and Gertsell?
Beating the teams they have by 1 or 2, or 0-4 RPCS by 8 is not unstoppable in the IAAM A. Come back when they play the top teams and then we’ll discuss.
SM had wins against John Carroll, Gerstell and Spalding who are 1-4 YTD and RPCS is 0-4 YTD so just playing easy opponents. No real competition yet. And what is going on with Spalding? Nationally ranked in 2019 and now a 1-4 record with only win against Garrison Forest who is also 1-4 YTD. From what I saw the other day, Spalding has a huge bench with very capable and committed players who I know from club and past years but only a few actually saw the field. Some players never got a break and were completely gassed by the end of the game and making unforced errors. Not sure what is going on there but looked like very poor girl coaching to me!
Because the whole team was built around one girl and she's at PSU now. Not sure how well coached they are when they don't have someone to go score goals for them.
It is kinda surprising they haven't done well even without the Penn St. kid. Spalding has alot of DI commits.
