Heard there was major drama the year before her junior season between her and the coach. There were talks of a lawsuit (I don't know the details. I heard the coach tried to kick her off, but her parents threatened action against the program). She injured her knee, I think, because I saw pics of her in a knee brace (looked like ACL).
Pepp has had some issues getting girls. My friend was headed towards there, but there was a chance she'd have to take one more homeschool class in the summer before she started school. Pepp had 2 girls kicked off the team for academic reasons, and they didn't want to chance anything so they voided her LOI.
Kelsey Laurente? She verballed PEPP according to TRN earlier..
anyway, from PEPP website;
