    Aimee Raithby http://d15k3om16n459i.cloudfront.net...seasonid=16264

    http://www.eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=389610

    She is leading Burlington in scoring: http://d15k3om16n459i.cloudfront.net...seasonid=16264. I wonder if teammate Trisha Cho is a sister of men's recruit Austin Cho. Both are from Mississauga.

    Barracuda's Media Guide http://assets.ngin.com/attachments/d..._2016-2017.pdf. She is interested in engineering.

    Man, that was quick! Only four days after I suggested they needed to step up their Canadian recruiting.

    All kidding aside, Raithby looks like a very good recruit. Burlington is a struggling team (they have been shut out in 7 of their last 11 games). Not easy to rack up 8 goals and 4 assists on a struggling team. Look forward to seeing her as an Engineer.

    I agree, maybe you should make some other comments and see what might happen?

    Heard they updated the performance board. Someone here posted a pic of it last year, not sure how they got that pic

    Her page http://www.scgha.com/roster_players/12008914

    I will add her to the recruit list on the men's recruit page on Sunday. I haven't found her hometown yet.

    These early commits (we now have 3 for 2019) are quite a gamble. Tough to judge how a player this young will develop over 3 years, but she is in a strong hockey program (Stoney Creek).

    The problem is that everyone else is recruiting early, so we need to also, and a lot of players graduate in 2019.

    I think that he was referring to the following. If so, the answer to his question is that I received the tweet from the team.

    Yeah that's the board, wasn't sure what else to call it. More than just weight lifting max. Thank you

    Anyone know how those numbers compare to any of the other teams out there?

    Lot of risk recruiting early unless you really feel your program is strong enough. Some have not even taken their SATs etc. Won't help if they can't maintain grades.

    I don't recall the RPI women ever having a recruit who subsequently wasn't admitted. Could you supply details?

    I do agree that there is a risk from making offers to sophomores, but everyone is doing it, both teams that are better and worse hockey teams than RPI, both schools that are better and worse academically than RPI.

    I think that our coaches are well aware of the academic requirements at RPI and don't put out offers to students that might not make the grade. As a result, we have a very high level of success in players completing the program with strong academic results. This is not the case with some other D1 programs (including some programs with supposedly high academic standards) where offers are put out to strong hockey players who are then left to their own devices as to how to get admitted. RPI has always done a good job on this.

    Just stating that going younger may create that issue and even currently there are occasions where players miss games because of academics.

    From the on-line RPI directory

    Jenn Gregg
    Biology

    Conceivably she will be entering RPI this semester.
