Interesting practice this morning. Manu-Olevao sent home with ‘flu-like’ symptoms. Passi not there. Shoji said Passi won’t be making the trip. no reason other than ‘personal issue.’
so what does that mean? Taylor took a lot of swings on the left, Huff had reps on the right. Shoji said he had been thinking about moving Taylor to play more left. And that they are prepared to play without both Manu-Olevao and Passi, although it sounds like they intend to have Manu-Olevao on the trip depending on how she is feeling.
Shoji said he wasn’t prepared to announced the travel roster yet. If he takes 14, as he has done, means that they take three DSs in Mendoza, Kahakai and either Ponce, Anderson or Guinasso.
Good scrimmaging this morning. I’d give the play of the day to Maglio on a bang-bang play where she used her foot to keep the ball alive and her team able to attack it. Looked like a hockey goalie sticking a leg out to deflect a shot. ended up being a playable ball.
Team lifts Wednesday morning, afternoon practice, redeye Wednesday night.
someone asked about the signings. they have paperwork on Granato and Mitchem. Not Castillo. not worried about it since she’s signed. it just hasn’t been submitted.
