Guam – Female soccer players looking for a college scholarship may be in luck as a college soccer coach will be in Guam this week to have a look at the local talent.
Mindes Dorlean, assistant coach of the Harcum College women’s soccer team, arrived last night to scout some of the island’s top female high school soccer players.
“We want to present our school formally to the Guam Football Association to keep up our relationship and also continue our scouting,” head coach Jean Senat said of the visit’s purpose. Senat was originally scheduled to travel but Dorlean will now take his place.
Dorlean will also do a presentation on what it takes to get into a college soccer team and what coaches look for in players, Senat said.
Dorlean will be present at the women’s national team training sessions tonight at 7 p.m. and Thursday night at 7:15 p.m. as well as giving his aforementioned presentation at 6:30 p.m. on Thursday.
Two of Guam’s former high school standouts currently ply their trade at Harcum – Simone Willter and Tiana Piper.
“Simie is a really great player,” Senat said. “She has played many positions for us. Piper is a real nice player for us too.” Willter was named to the All-Region 2 team.
There will be up to four scholarships offered to local girls scouted by Dorlean, Senat said.
“We are also looking into starting our men’s program in 2012 and may scout them too,” he added.
Any high schools interested in scheduling a visit should call GFA at 637-4321.
Harcum College is located in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania, about 20 minutes from Philadelphia, and competes in Division I of the National Junior College Athletic Association.
