And that with the economy in Greece there are bad conditions so she wants to play at Houston first and then try the pros. I'm surprised because I thought she definitely could've gone pro since she's already been doing well in some ITFs but I think this way might pay off in the long run. The only thing is that now we probably won't see her playing any ITFs for a few years
She should've gone to a much better team, but then again if she wasn't doing well financially and they gave her a full ride, then good for her
Kordolaimi and Vogasari now for the Cougars. I wanna transfer there so I can watch them all the time
I am pretty sure Patrick Sullivan had a lot to do with recruiting Vogasari. Sullivan recruited Elena Kordolaimi last year, while starting his 2nd year at Stephen F. Austin. When Patrick accepted the Houston position in June, Kordolaimi transferred to Houston. I am sure it will be an easier adjustment for Vogasari with Kordolaimi already there.
Although Houston is not nationally ranked, Sullivan did post a 43-10 record in his two season at Stephen F. Austin and last year made NCAA tournament, reaching a high rank of #45. Sullivan has aspirations to make Houston a contender
but I doubt that is going to happen anytime soon. I am sure adding Vogasari will help but he inherited a roster that includes 8 recruits from the former head coach, John Severance, of which, only 2 are seniors this year.
The good news is that I will be able to see them both play. Go Cougers!!!
