From the directory. Missy Mankey is the only known recruit missing now.

Name: Logonaimanufaal Anne Letuligasenoa
Class: First-Year Student
Curriculum: Communication


That answers a question. It looks like there is a 15-letter limit on first names. :)

The press release (http://www.rpiathletics.com/news/2010/5/26/WICE_0526101154.aspx) on the recruits is out.

Edit: I thought of Dr. D's preference for size and chuckled when I read that Nona Letuligasenoa "will add size and strength to our blue line." She's listed at 5'6".

I think that she will add size to the name plate on her uniform. :)

The release states that 9 forwards, 4 dmen, and 3 goalies are expected back.

3 goalies is correct.
dmen: Daniels, Castignetti, Vadner, Le Donne
forwards: Stapleton, Guillemette, Horton, Padmore, Vandegrift, Harrison, Gaylord, O'Keefe, Dunlop
and Jakubowski who is listed as F/D.

Someone is leaving.

Edit: 6 of the top 10 scorers are back indicates that Harrison, Dunlop, Horton, O'Keefe, Vandegrift, and Castignetti will be back. Tha means that one of the following apparently won't: Daniels, Vadner, Le Donne, Stapleton, Guillemette, Padmore, Gaylord, and Jakubowski.

Although listed as F/D, I only remember Jakubowski playing forward. With only two defensive recruits coming in I hope and expect that the four holdovers on the back line will return. If not, the Engineers will be awfully thin back there.

Don't be fooled by the "size", she will be a tank back there.

Nice summary, though I personally think the outlook for a "mid-pack finish" next season is pretty optimistic for RPI. Then again, you certainly can't fault a team's fans for their optimism.

Realistically, I don't see RPI placing any higher than 8th at best, given their graduation losses combined with improvements elsewhere in the league. Their most valuable assets will be Van der Bliek in goal, and the coaching of Burke who always seems to be able to get the best out of what he has on the bench on a consistent basis. With coaching and goaltending behind you, you just never know.

I am being optimistic, although I won't put any real weight on my predictions until we see the teams in action. I debated even making a prediction, then wanted to say 5-8 and realized that really wasn't likely. But I have a hard time imagining them missing the playoffs. With what we know now and having not seen any of the teams in action, right at the cusp of making the playoffs is probably about right. Time will tell.

I agree about van der Bliek and Burke. There really aren't any other "stars" on the team, at least not based on last season's performances. The seniors really were the life of the team. Who knows if any of the returning players are ready to step it up to the next level. I'm cautiously optimistic that a couple will. We'll find out in a few months.

I agree that the true question mark for RPI next season will be the offense. Obviously Gersten was key on the blue line but there are 4 solid returners back there on D. And good play from van der Bliek is to be expected, so as a fan I am not too worried about the defense.

However as many have mentioned the loss of Wright, Weidner and Naslund could be detrimental if nobody steps up to fill that void. I believe the 3 key forwards will be Harrison, Dunlop and Horton. If Harrison can get back to her 30+ points she had freshman year, and Dunlop can increase her output to the upper twenties that should take care of the loss of Wright and Naslund. I think that with Horton having her freshman season under her belt she will have an improved point output as well. I'm very confident those three have what it takes to step it up. The real issue will be if the role players of last season like O'Keefe and Vandegrift can step up and have their best season yet.

I really do hope that a couple of these freshmen forwards can come in and help out because I don't see Padmore, Guillemette or Jakubowski all of a sudden having a breakout year filled with point production. Although I'd love to be proven wrong on that prediction

It looks like Ashley Gaylord has indeed left the team as this list http://www.rpiathletics.com/sports/2010/7/14/WICE_0714100417.aspx?id=2850 of who has worn each number shows Nona Letuligasenoa as wearing #23. Actually, Gaylord is missing entirely.

Harrison and Restuccia reunite from their U14 days playing for the Maryland Blue Devils. It's the beauty of the Chowder Cup.
