  • Andy said,

    Lucas left Florida for Delaware over the summer and will have to sit out one year under the transfer plan and Jasmine Gill, from Page that was at Boston College, left BC headed for JMU, the James Madison University Dukes….

    We will have to do some other search work on the other girls….Hargraves was at Charlotte, Aslton at UNC-Wilmington and maybe Fields at UNC-Wilmington…We have to do some looks..
