The rumor amongst those in the know in Kansas City is that Kimberly Wert is rumored to have already transferred to Missouri with former Hofstra Head Coach Larissa Anderson. Strange how Anderson took a non-entity who never started a single game for her Hofstra team to an SEC team in Missouri. Can’t see her getting much if any playing time. This move is puzzling.

Wonder how many of the 18 and 19 commits have jumped ship?

Ha, that was also spoken about. Overheard them saying that there’s a good chance that a whole bunch of the 19’s and 20’s are no longer committed to attending Hofstra University. I am unfamiliar with names so can’t really fact check the social media of those kids. Also overheard that Megan Good is finishing up at James Madison University so they should be a lock for the CAA title.

Joining a team under .500 in conference, didn't make the NCAA tournament, had less home runs as a team than Alloca had by herself last year. They just lost their associate head coach (Goler) to Penn State, the pitching coach (Kramer) is entering her second year. I will say they do have a nice pitching staff with addition. But it hardly seems like a desirable environment.


Allocca homeruns were in the CAA. Not known for their pitching prowess. Seems like the two best pitchers in that conference were on her own team along with the one pitcher from James Madison. All others were sub par to say the least. Not to take away from her achievements but it could be an inflated statistic.

Meghan Giordano is one of the top incoming freshmen for HU. Haven’t heard anything in regards to her yet, but she’s likely an important one to keep.

She would have been our #3 or clean-up hitter for the next three years...She is very good, but had the misfortune of being on a team with seven seniors at a school that tends to play their upperclassmen.  

Had there been a need, she could have easily stepped into the line-up and contributed.

Still, despite limited plate appearances, she still managed to hit 5 homers (just over one per every six at-bats)....Her power potential makes her worth having.

Maddie Burns is the one I think we NEED to retain....Being that we have no pitching [aside from Scarpato], the Section II girl fills a major need.

Wert was , is that good .. she will be able to play in the SEC.  There was no reason for not playing her, unless she was injured.  What bothers me is why if Hofstra is/was so dear to her heart as she said , is she taking /trying to take Hofstras future with her to Missouri.
So I wonder how much Morgan Lashley had to do with Cornells transfer to Alabama? I believe she works with Alabama's pitchers.

I guess her future comes first before Hofstras.

I’m not sure how anyone can say that she can play in the top conference, the SEC. She couldn’t crack the CAA Hofstra lineup other then pinch hitting. Did she ever play a position in the field? Maybe someone in the know can answer that. On the outside, it looks more like a roster filler spot until the new coach gets players of SEC quality since there was/is an exodus of a bunch of Missouri players. And maybe more to come. That Missouri team may be a mish mosh of all different players come spring time.

So my prediction was off a little, Cornell went to Alabama... sorry.

I here now that Hallam and Scarpato are possibly jumping ship..... According to the transfers board.

Will it be more than just a rebuilding year like I said?   There is more coming , but from what I see this board can only handle little bits of the truth at a time.... unless they report it first or as long as it doesn't come from an unaccredited newbie.

It's a shame Hofstra has fallen so low. It will take years to rebuild. Direct correlation of the AD's poor coaching hire.

I just came back from the Campus. Was told as of now no other players are transferring. Also told all commits are in place so again no ,defections. We all know that it can all change in a NY minute. SO yes our newbies were right but I will still wait and see before I make a judgemnet on this hire. One thing that does puzzle me is why another coach was not hired yet.

So if what Steelman says is true ,  that's about the best news so far since this mess started. Hallam, and Scarpato staying is crucial to next years team, from a starters stand point but maybe more important.... as much needed leaders .

Hallam still needs to come back healthy.
