The last three posts were great comments and very positive towards Megan and the goals you mentioned are very achieveable for her and your right - her motivation is even stronger after being slighted by the county. However, this isn't her first disappointment and she has taken each disappointment in her high school career (her high school team, Empires) and worked harder for the next goal, only to be disappointed again. She was always being told to keep working - it'll pay off. Obviously it did with the D-1 scholarship but then to feel slapped by all county - is just tough.

That's the great part of this discussion board - have your say - and move on. Her best memories and accomplishments are yet to come. She may not have the support of Monroe County but she has a lot of other people that support her and will continue to support her - that's what really matters.

All this talk about Ms. Smith, i don't think that she is all that you say she is. Just because someone recieves a scholarship, doesn't make them a good player. Plus, if you had an attitdue like that, who would want you? There is more to the game than skill, i think that attitude and sportsmanship play a role too....

"Just because someone recieves a scholarship, doesn't make them a good player." yeah that makes alot of sense!? To have a school come out and see you play just means ur a good player, getting the scholarship proves it. Meg's attitude is fine she is just a competitive player and theres nothing wrong w/ that. I think cry about it you are crying b/c ur jealious!

That is probably one of the dumbest satements I think I have ever heard......I cant think of many schools who throw money (tuition) at bad players......

That is so true...it's a known fact that scholarships are only given to really, really bad players because college coaches want really, really bad players for their teams. Just ask any college coach, they'll tell you they want the bad players...the worse they play, the bigger the scholarship. If you really suck...it's a free ride for 4 years.

Yeah I must agree with the majority and say that the comment made about "cry about it" is definitely not the smartest comments I've heard in a while. I think that scholarships are not only awarded by present talent and ability, but also, the potential that an athlete might have to improve and contribute to a program. On the other hand, I do know from a few sources that a few D1 programs have in the past pretty much "given away" scholarships. A good friend of mine said that her coach "gave away" a scholarship to a girl JUST BECAUSE he needed to fill the position and was struggling to find someone to do so because it was getting close to the last signing period. Stuff like that may happen, but there is always a reason why a player might catch a coach's eye...and I can say that the MAJORITY of players who receive scholarsips actually DESERVE them!!! (also, too often are the players who are on teams, contribute immensely, and hardly receive any money to play...)

I agree that toward the end of signing periods some scholarships are offered to players that may not have been on the initial d-1 list but bumped up because the pool of players got smaller and smaller as the top players signed. That could be a whole other topic "debating signing early or holding out - cuz something better could come with the domino effect".

This is not the case, however, with Megan. She signed on the first day of the early signing period - back in October. Also - Rider wasn't the only college interested, they were the college of Megan's choice.

my post wasn't to argue the fact that Megan is not a good player. i am saying that one of the reasons, in my opinion, that she didn't make the all-county team is because of her attitude.

statechamp8 you said that "Meg's attitude is fine"...have you ever played with or against her? Well, i have, been on both sides of the net with her, and her attitude is far from "fine"...

It sounds to me like there is more of a personality conflict going on here more than anything else. I guess if you said who you were and where you played with/against Megan it would be easier to tell. It's funny that Megan's best friends are players that play with/against her. Not only current players but players that have moved on to college and keep in touch.

I looked over the 1st team list again and can't really apply your theory - I see girls that I've either seen attitudes from or heard about them having attitudes and they're still on the 1st team.

If Megan had the attitude you say she has...she would have responded to your negative posts a long time ago.

I play with and against Megan as well and she is a great player. She pushes herself and her team and is not afraid to do what it takes to win. She is a positive player. Occasionally she gets upset with herself but usually she is in a good mood. Agree with me or not, I dont care...but megan is a fantastic player and teammate. At the moment she plays on a club team with the most talented players from the Rochester area (that play club for those of you who will complain that there are "great players" who dont play club). Meg, I always have your back kid!

Cry-about-it who are you? You are full of it. If you have played on a team with Megan and think she has a horrible attitude it is probably because she is ten times the player you are, or because you were intimidated by her. It is bull. This whole trash talking someone because no one knows who you are in crap. Step up to your comments and hand out a name. If you believe what you say, then you shouldnt be afraid to say it without hiding.

Meg is awesome. I also have played with and against her. This past year, she was the girl to stop on Webster. She is also playing for VFX this year where she is taking full control of the net. Her attitude is to win.
