NCAA team limit question

Post by Dean C. Wagn » Mon, 13 Jul 1992 15:04:30


Is there a limit to the number of women that can be on an NCAA team, and
if so, what is it?  I'm asking because none of the 12 members of the
UIUC women's team were seniors, and they recruited at least 1 incoming
freshman.  Does this mean someone who was on the team last year won't be
on this year, or can they go above 12? (11 of them were scholarship
players).

I am a student at UIUC, and I'm a line judge for the UI women's team, and so I
follow them closely.  The reason they were able to recruit one incoming freshman is
that Anne Conway, a junior last year, has transferred out to ... Oregon, I believe.
So they do have an open spot on the team for next year.  But not now, I guess, if
they did recruit someone else.

You can't travel with more than 12, unless you're going to a tournament
or multi-match event. Then you can take 15. I don't think there's any
limit for home matches, but I'd have to look it up to be sure.

In addition to the Anne Conway situation mentioned by Dan, it is also true that
Eileen Harkins (defensive specialist) may not be returning to the team.  It was
my understanding that her commitment to the team was taking some time away from
her studies and that she was also upset that she was not given the scholarship
that opened up when Anne Conway transferred.  She has not said Yes or No yet,
and frankly I hope she decides to stay on the team.  She started many games, and
came off the bench with a key serve or tough defense on many an occasion.  Then
there's the fact that she came from Mother McCauley H.S. on the southwest side
of Chicago which was in my neighborhood!  :)

The roster is not limited to twelve players, as the example of Illinois
shows. Last year's roster of twelve (with eleven scholarships) has been
changed by the departure of Eileen Harkins (non-scholarship) and Anne
Conway (scholarship). Also, Stephanie Bowers' scholarship is available,
giving the Illini two vacant scholarships in addition to the returning
ten scholarship players. One scholarship will be given to Megan Stettin
from the Sports Performance team in Chicago. A new non-scholarship player
will be Rena Zenarosa from Belleville West. The last scholarship will be
given to a thir***th player who I don't think has been officially named
yet, and whose name I shouldn't reveal. It might be the case that only
twelve players can dress for a given match, or that only twelve players
can travel with the team. Certainly budget limitations keep the number of
players finite. However, the roster is definitely not limited to twelve.
