I will be making a road trip to DeKalb, IL to see the volleyball team in the first tournament of the season. DeKalb is about 2 hours or so from me.
I keep hoping that they will play in Atlanta one day.
We are thinking of making the trip to Creighton.
Thank you for all the great work you do in this forum.
There aren't always a lot of posts by people, but there are a lot of views. It's a great and under-appreciated part of AllBuffs.
Doesn't hurt, either, that so many of the CU "Olympic" sports are performing at a very high level right now.
No problem. Now is an exciting time because several of these teams should be able to make some noise on a national level in the upcoming season.
I updated the rosters for the teams that were available for the upcoming season. Here are some updates on some of the players:
Andrew Bonner-Freshman: Informed the staff that he won't be returning to the team. He played in seven tournaments last team and looked like he would have been an important piece for the future of the team. He left apparently because of his mother's illness and Boulder being cold. He is looking to transfer to either UNLV or Oregon.
Kraig McLeod-RS Freshman: Informed the staff that he won't be returning to the team. He only saw time in two tournaments last season and didn't have a huge impact. I couldn't find any info on why he left or where he might be going, but it might be for playing time.
Ross Thornton-RS Freshman: He did not see any action in the fall, as the plan for him was to redshirt for the season, but in the spring, he made the decision to no longer play college golf but to remain at CU to continue his studies.
Sydney Carlson-Freshman: It looks like she transferred to Seattle University. It doesn't look like she saw any playing time for the Buffs. That might be the reason why she transferred and she's also from Washington.
Olivia Pappalardo-Sophomore: Transferred to Depauw. Don't know the reason, but it might have been to be closer to home since she is from Chicago. She started 29 games over the last 2 seasons with 13 being last year. She had 1 career goal and 4 career assists. It looks like this is a decent sized loss from a depth perspective, but not much scoring wise.
Taylor Thurmond-Sophomore: Not sure what the deal here is. She hasn't seen much playing time and couldn't find anything about her leaving, but she isn't listed on next season's roster.
There were also some really good transfers that we've added to the program for this year:
Junior Midfielder Kahlia Hogg (Florida State) - She hasn't seen much time for Florida State, but she has been a member of both the Under 17 and Under 20 Australian Women's National Teams.
Junior Goalie Kate Scheele (Colorado College) - She started all of CC's 22 games last season (15-4-3) and was named to the Conference USA first team.
Sophomore Midfielder Morgan Stanton (Santa Clara) - She saw action in 7 games last season and was also once on the Under 17 US Women's National Team.
Dhany Quevedo- Freshman: Transferred to South Florida. She was a starter last season at mostly #5 and #6 singles in which she achieved four victories. It's not that big of a loss, but it still hurts to lose a starter on a team that is struggling to win.
Chelsey Keoho- Freshman: Looks like she has transferred to Oregon. Looks like she only saw action in one match last season, so I'm guessing it's playing time, but not sure.
Makayla Lundin- Freshman: Not sure what the story here is, but she isn't listed on the roster for next season. She was time in 5 matches last season and seemed to have made somewhat of an impact, so I'm not sure what the problem is.
Kate Klepetka- Freshman: Transferred to Texas A&M-Corpus Christie. Doesn't look like she saw any time as a Buff last season.
In my excitement of the tourney in DeKalb, I didn't even see the one at Creighton. However, I'm busy on September 20, so it doesn't work for me to go there.
VB .... Makayla Lundin has transferred to Indiana. I suspect she saw her chance for playing time as Edelman's backup disappearing with the arrival of highly ranked FR setter Gabby Simpson.
I've updated the schedules for the spring seasons for the fall sports of men's and women's golf and women's tennis.
There have been a few more schedule releases and the sticky thread is now updated. The new schedules released are for men's and women's golf, tennis, skiing, and track and field. The only one that has not be released yet is for lacrosse.
Assume you meant the main spring schedule for lacrosse? They have announced their fall exhibition schedule if you wanted to post that in the sticky. (You did already mention it here- http://www.allbuffs.com/showthread....s-Fall-Exhibition-Schedule?highlight=lacrosse .)
(IF by some chance I get up early enough Saturday, I might do a lacrosse and soccer double header.)
I did forget about the fall schedule and will add it to the thread, but I was really thinking about spring
I updated the results of all of the teams in the schedules thread and posted the new schedule for lacrosse, for anyone that's interested.
Thanks for the lacrosse schedule update.
Seems weird to me that, for I believe the 2nd year in a row, one of the biggest games (or the biggest?), and it's a league game, against DU is so early in the season, this year being the very 1st match. (last year it was the 3rd overall match.) Be interesting to hear the reason or thought behind this.
