First, I think it’s important to give credit where credit is due. Lafayette has a pretty good volleyball team this year. I believe that they are 9-3. I’ll guess that football scholarships is having as big an impact on women’s sports in the PL as it is in football. It is just a matter of where each school wants to allocate it’s Title IX money.
As for the defections, I have no inside information.I will ay that Bertucci has been a highly successful coach everywhere he has been, earning COY in the Patriot League, A10 and SEC. His practices can be challenging. Not everyone is equipped to handle that. Compound that with academic pressures and kids need to make decisions. ML still at Lehigh I believe. Not sure about the twins.
