Team National at Claremont


Hawaii was first to post the roster and now more Sections.
(You can check by scrolling the Reults Search on player)

SW is not bad at all,

Sanford, Slaysman, Pothoff, McKenzie, Clarke..

Douglas is a welcome additions for Texas(didn't play Spring Cal. tournaments).

Oh Middle States, Missouri Valley..I can only recognize Rosca & Tsokilauri lol.

I'll edit as more info becomes available.


Pacific Northwest roster is revealed; Hampton, Glozman, Waldram, Wang the same.

So. Cal is the opposite; Only Shibahara and Andrews are the same, and the newbies are;

Failla, Higuchi, Hart, Day, Van Alphen

No. Cal, only Maltby is the same; noticeable additions are Miller, Possokhova, Cline, Chong..

Weird schedules

WTT starts quite late, maybe that's why Stanford starts so late too. Azarenka and Hantuchova are playing.
And So. Cal teams are progressively playing further from LA lol, now at SD.

And can you explain this; why is Lakewood also so late this year? And even at the same time with Team? weird..

  • Of course the Super Gator Trio of Austin, Porter and Kuhlman are doing VERY well this year...

    Recruiting] Winner of class of 2015

    2013, Stanford
    2014, Florida
    2015, Duke

    Lol I see that Duke's rebuilding is already finished.

    For example if Capra stays in her senior year;

    per class

    Scholl Smith
    McCarthy Hamlin Ho
    So no prominent domestic players for Stanford 2 years in a row? Surprising?

    So. Cal top Asians

    Sectional Q lineup


    Half are Asians lol and all are top level players.

    2016 Shibahara, Higuchi
    2017 Chen
    2018 Liu

    Stanford might get them, since they haven't recruited players from 2014 & 2015 so far. Amber Liu, Stacey Tan, Kristie Ahn, Ellen Tsay, Carol get the gist.

    P.S. Another East Asian Kim Yee of Nevada may as well attend Stanford..

    And what about Carolyn Xie, after a long absense she has applied for the National..

    Tuesday, June 24, 2014

    Can No. Cal team go far at Claremont this July

    Last year;


    Possible lineup this year;

    Gordon(just beat USC's Olmos at the final of USONP)

    We'll see?  Will Austin and Porter again participate for their respective sections; Midwest and Texas.

    Intermountain region could be quite competitive, there are lots of good players : Yee, Smith, Weissmann, Turley, Kalhorn, Dvorak, Schuck, Gevargiz...

    Chloe Gullickson is interested in

    Neglected TRN for some time(well, it IS World Cup season).

    Chloe is interested in


    Not Goergia, like her sister? Haha.

    One of the biggest hitters out there, the player who impressed me most in singles(dbls is of course Turley) at Winter Nat, almost beating Shibahara.

    And she applied for Lakewood next month, I see.

    There's no doubt UF is the winner; and the point difference against USC is underrated imo; because especially Austin and Porter are proven champions.  You could argue that Xepoleas was the Easter Bowl G16 finalist but Peggy actually won both Clay and Hard Nat G16.  Austin has been #1 for a long time until recently.

    I'm not sure UCLA is necessarily higher than Georgia. Are Wiley and Magill better players than Gould(Gould has beaten Xepoleas comfortably a few years back at the Hard National)? Patterson is a pretty big hitter, and let's not forget King, who was Hard National G16 Consolation Finalist(lost to Loeb in 3 I believe).

    GT higher than Duke and Michigan? I would argue that Michigan is right up there with ND, possibly even higher with more recruits.

    You can see that Midwest schools did pretty well; ND, MICH, OSU(Great recruit in Sanford and Sneed, & DiLorenzo comes next year), NU..
    Ivy league strengthened their lineups as well; Harvard, Brown(Benotto), Princeton(Steffensen), Columbia(Asatrian)..

    Rice & Tech has also done well, and Tech already recruited Maltby for next year.
