Just a test post to see if I screwed something up in my settings, or if everyone is really being this quiet.
Uihleen, Lobdell, Zanon and Bothun to Camp 66. All Penn State verbal commits.
Gangarosa just named Section 5 tournament MVP for girls lacrosse for the Brighton Barons for the Class B champions. Enters Penn State in the fall for hockey.
She's a 5-10 defender who can score a lot, too. I hate the word "potential", but she's got it in spades.
When Kampresal was at Princeton, he definitely preferred multi sport players. Fidler also fits that blueprint as she has played hockey, soccer and lax and won Edina's female sportster of the year award.
Back to the goalie issue - I'm just going to assume Kampersal has to get a third goalie for next season, so my questions would be these: does he go after a freshman who knows she will be a practice goalie for four years, or does he do whatever coaches do to get an experienced transfer who has a year or two left (with the two current goalies being a sophomore and redshirt freshman)? Does he put the season on the shoulders of the current sophomore goalie, Chantal Burke?
A few days later, the ball rolls.
I donít think itís too rare for teams to be inexperienced in goal. Thinking off the top of my head, Mercyhurst split goaltender duties for a long time this year trying to find their number one; OSU had a walk on goalie... BC might have a freshman in net next year.I bet thereís more than a few programs with similar predicaments.
I bet every coach whose been around a while has dealt with this. No need for great concern!

My curiosity is mostly whether Kampersal goes for a practice goalie, or does what he can to find a junior or senior somewhere who wants to transfer. I would think a third goalie is pretty much mandatory, as last season showed when Burke was needed. In the little time Burke was in a few games, I thought she looked good, and of course Kampersal has seen a lot more of her, so maybe he has her pegged for the starting job.
