Very nice pick up

Just looked her up on flosoftball and she was ranked #24

PGF and FloSoftball all American with offers from many top Pac 12 schools

She had a ridiculous BA at PGF Nationals

It has been out there since May, but I just noticed it in the transfer threads. Considering that UW graduated its entire outfield...

Samantha Manti is no longer listed on UW's roster. Transferring? Plain's emergence didn't bode well for getting starts in 2019, despite a 6-0 record and 1.57 ERA in 2018. I have no doubt there are lots of quality programs where she can start.

If true, McKenzie Schulz, incoming freshman, will be stepping in as UW's #3 pitcher.

That's too bad. I hope she finds a good fit. I've always felt like she's been undervalued. She threw decent on a VERY short leash this year.

Maggie G is also gone. Solid player, I thought she would get second base until Atlee transferred in last summer.

Looking at last seasons roster, she wasn't on it. I remember seeing her post Oregon, but I don't remember her after...

Either she didn't qualify at UW or Tarr released her from her NLI.

Second middle school commit at UW who didn't make it to the finish line: Alyssa Pinto (Oregon) and Maddi Banks (Virginia Tech).

Gallagher is not listed on the 2018 or 2019 rosters. (Same with Manti.) Her tweet, however, shows she was in summer school at UW - if she needs a grade to be eligible, that could explain why she's not listed on the roster.

True, but Pinto was her choice, Banks was not by choice

Irresponsible to jump to the conclusion that because a SA is in summer school she needs a grade to be eligible! A large amount of SA’s go to summer school, it’s a great time to enjoy the academics without having to fit a sport into your schedule. Many SA’s get summer school paid for through their scholarship, they can take a class and continue to work out at their leisure on campus.

I'm not jumping to any conclusion, but am just saying needing a grade/credit could be a possible explanation for not being listed on the roster (2018 or 2019). Other explanations are certainly possible.

Yeah, maybe she just enjoys taking classes and working toward a degree.

And Pinto switched before signing an NLI.

My comment was that they were both middle school commits who didn't make it to the finish line (the school they originally committed to). It's a long road from middle school to college. Pinto took an off-ramp; Banks ran into a roadblock, it would seem.

In her tweet she said, "I hate summer school and stats". She hasn't left school (and still has "University of Washington" on her Twitter page).

LOL. So much for my theory, then.

The problem I had during this situation was ...who's paying the bills and buying the groceries for the student in summer school?  Most of the time, my daughter had a partial scholarship but even if there's a full ride, the housing check is likely not arriving for the summer.  So my daughter did go to summer school but she also had a job.  Which, to her chagrin, did not support 'working out at your leisure.'  There were plenty of players who were doing that and she definitely thought she should have that option.

just a thought, sometimes I get an odd feeling how often people search every board for insight or info, twitter, facebook, instagram to get juicy scoop info on what a player is doing - Summer school is a discussion item, who is going for what reason, roster's changing and then the hunt to find out where, why did they leave ..grades? Drama? Coach issues?..... not saying it's a stalker thing but SA are under so much scrutiny it seems, and while they might have open twitters and FB etc, it's probably shocking someone is really following to  the extent I see and then debate it - gotta figure out they are gone or missing from a school etc, and it is debated.  

Rosters change.  Student athletes make decisions to change their lives.  Just enjoy the game and the competition.   And this is where I put...IMHO.

Let the frenzy begin.

It was a public tweet, which I came across when searching for reasons (a transfer, for instance, often announced via Twitter) for why she was no longer listed on the roster. The thought occurred to me because having to make up a credit or improve a grade in summer school to meet academic progress requirements is fairly common among male football and basketball players - are female softball players somehow exempt from this?

The football and basketball coaches would likely release info explaining the roster absence (at least that has been the case in the past). But Tarr, no. I was actually relieved that she was in school and is, evidently, not transferring. She should be in the running to replace Van Zee at third base.

UW's players actually had to take finals at the WCWS, under less than ideal circumstances. Maybe she ran into a tough course or professor (Statistics?). That doesn't mean she's failing academically or anything of the sort. As far as we know, Manti could be in the same boat.

Not being argumentative here truly...but your entire post made my point. 

In this posting -You make a jump from making up credits, improving grades, querying possible explanation of roster absence, tough course or professor (Statistics?), might not be falling academically or anything of the sort -but player M, hey she COULD be in the same boat.

Inquiring minds got to know.

But if I was the SA, I would say why do you need to know?  Why are so invested in what she is doing academically or otherwise?  They play to win and represent their schools, get an education, and do everything their coaches direct them to do - sell programs during football or basketball season/check.  Go to special ed sports events/check.  Host recruits/check.  Be a leader/check.  Hold their teammates accountable for team rules/check.

Outside of what they do on the field, I don't think the fan base really needs to be so invested in their media activity, it's like sometimes folks on this board are TMZ reporters on these athletes.  Somehow social media has created more situations than there can be bandaids for.

MAYBE she ran into a tough course or professor....that just kills me.  JUDGING.  Would your daughter like to have the presumptions being made out in the twilight zone about her efforts academically?  NOPE.

It's a duck.

It still remains that she's not listed on the roster. Oops, that means, as a fan, that I can't wonder why, in your book, without being labelled as a "stalker".

To repeat, I have not jumped to any conclusions (reread what I posted). As a fan, beyond her still being in school (as of this summer) and, thus, likely not transferring, I have absolutely no interest in her personal life. The same holds for Manti. (I'd rather that both be on the team, than not.)

Having to make up a credit or improve a grade to meet academic progress requirements is simply a possible, and fairly commonplace, reason for why an athlete might no longer be listed on a roster. How probable that is, in her case, I really have no idea.

I find it odd that players who were with the team up to the last game are no longer on the roster. This is a discussion board. If you aren't into it, bye.

Wonder if this has to do with SM missing.
