I want to hear a bit about the Women's south. Who was good, who was surprising, who were the best players??

Thanks in advance.

Andrea Ritchie of Arkansas was one of the best players in the south
this season. I saw her make D's on players nearly twice her height.
I'm sure any team that played against Arkansas will not soon forget
her.

Disclaimer: I was not at South Regionals and at least a few players on
this list are my club teammates / former college teammates.

I would say that all of these players at least deserve to be involved
in the discussion, with the stars being locks in my book:

Andrea Ritchie (Arkansas)- speedy receiver, key to Arkansas' success
this season
Austine Lin (Rice)- Rice's Callahan nominee, big throws and leader for
a young team that is going to be very good next year
*Katie "BS" Blyth (Texas)- Texas' Callahan nominee, strong lefty
handler and great defender, huge field presence for Texas
*Rachel "Chump" Massey (Texas)- one of the best defenders and cutters
on the team in '08 as a rookie, has only gotten better since then and
has added a full arsenal of throws
*Meredith Hicks (Texas A&M)- best athlete in the region, fantastic all-
around player as only a sophomore!
Lilly White (Texas A&M)- strong throws and defense, very aggressive
player
Alex Lundy (Truman)- deserves a lot of credit for leading a very
inexperienced Truman team to a strong finish at Regionals
Kim Abts (Truman)- same as Alex
Jenn Bauman (Vanderbilt)- strong thrower
*Sara Gibson (Vanderbilt)- one of the best all-around players in the
region
*Abby Stephens (Wash U)- Wash U's Callahan nominee, great all-around
player
Kami Groom (Wash U)- last year's FOTY, Wash U's most difficult
downfield matchup

FOTY
Diana Charrier (Texas)- had an offer to play DI soccer at Texas (great
athlete), strong cutter
Sharon Tsao (Texas)- throws, hops, speed
Emily Wheeler (Rice)- tall and speedy, got tons of run-through Ds at
Showdown tryouts on high-level club players, is going to be scary good
soon

Ok, I admit, I was actually hoping to hear out of the blue something about a particular team, but I guess I am going to have to fish for compliments for John Brown's women. They took Washington to 13-15, best game WashU had all day except the loss to Texas. JBU faded after that, dropping to 11th, but looking just at the scoredboard it looks like they pushed a nationals team pretty hard.

I wasn't there, can anyone fill me in on the proceedings?

JBU has indeed come a long way this year. They're a team that
deserves to be respected and must be taken seriously every point of
every game. I don't know if it's more player experience, their coach,
helpful tips from the Midwest Throwdown Roundup Division (shameless
plug), or a combination of it all, but I'm extremely impressed with
the team's improvement as compared from past years. With bringing
only eight girls to the series, they played with heart, composure, and
great sportsmanship. It was a pleasure to play them, and I think
Hannah Cole (#21) and Libby Eubanks (#17) deserve special credit for
their dominance and aggressiveness on the field. It'll be exciting to
watch their program continue to grow in coming years.

Also, I'd like to give props to Tasha Parman from Kansas. As a 5th
year grad student, she's poured her heart into college Ultimate the
past five years, and I have no doubt the Betty's are a better
developed team for it. Her massive hucks and huge field presence make
her deserving of consideration for All-Region, despite nagging
injuries and canceled plane flights she's had to battle all season.
