A couple quick notes here that I will follow up on later in the week:
Angelei Aguirre will transfer to UCSB. The 2008 Journal News player of the year has, indeed, left Cal. She has transferred to Cal-Santa Barbara, where she will play for former Cal assistant Lindsay Gottlieb. Of course, Gottlieb played at Scarsdale, but she also recruited Aguirre to Cal, so there’s a comfort level there. Gottlieb led UCSB to a Big West championship and into the big dance. (Aguirre also used to tell me she preferred good weather. I can tell you firsthand: it doesn’t get better than the weather in Santa Barbara.)
After playing very little as a freshman at Cal, Aguirre will have to sit out the coming season. She will be eligible to play again in 2010-11. (Contrary to popular belief, Aguirre was on scholarship.)
Kim Adams has returned to Penn. Not that she ever left the school, but the 2007 player of the year left the team at Penn last December. She has returned to the program after new coach, Mike McLaughlin, reached out to her. Adams has already begun working with the Quakers this offseason.
