Hi folks. Blogging is fun. Having people read your thoughts is priceless, but it doesn’t pay the bills. In an attempt at doing so, I have moved my content from here to www.girlsballtoo.com or read my columns on http://www.examiner.com/womens-sports-in-washington-dc/andy-arnold.
I hope to draw advertisers and a few other bloggers to girlsballtoo so as to expand the content on the important topic of girls/women sports.

What does a woman have to do in Washington DC to get a little recognition? Get booed at a NASCAR event? Murder her roommate? Because something like winning an NCAA national championship doesn’t seem to make the cut.
Trailing top-ranked North Carolina 2-0 Sunday with less than 4 minutes to play, the Maryland Terps rallied for 3 scores and the national title in overtime. In general, sports do not get much more exciting than rallies, overtimes and championships. Add pretty chicks with sticks and one has a TV producer’s fantasy.

NAVY SOCCER TIES COLGATE. Ashlynn Soellner connected on a header in the 84th minute as Navy (8-5-3, 1-2-1) tied Colgate (9-4-2, 2-0-2) in double-overtime, 1-1, on Saturday at the Glenn Warner Soccer Facility.
Trailing 1-0 and with time running out, senior team captain Kate Herren served a corner kick into the box, where an awaiting Soellner headed the ball into the net for her third goal of the season on 83:26.With her sixth assist of the season, Herren now shares the Patriot League lead in the category.
A Navy handball in the box just 50 seconds into the second half set Colgate up
with a penalty kick. However Navy goalkeeper Alexes Lopez-Shaw correctly read Elise Amioka’s attempt and made a nice diving save to her right to stop her second penalty kick of the season.
However, just a minute later, Colgate’s Danielle Wessler sent Jillian Kinter on a long run down the left side and Kinter got ahead of the Navy defense. Kinter carried the ball in on goal and took a shot from 15 yards out that was initially
deflected by Lopez-Shaw, but fell just inside the far post.
LEOPARDS DOWN MIDS. Three players recorded double-digit kills to lead the Lafayette volleyball team to its first Patriot League win of the season over visiting Navy Saturday. The Leopards dropped set one before rebounding to a 3-1 victory by scores of 22-25, 25-20, 25-19 and 25-13.
With the win, the Leopards improve to 8-11 on the season with a 1-6 Patriot League record. The Midshipmen fall to 6-16 overall and 1-6 in League action.
Camissa Beghou led Lafayette with 12 kills. She was joined in double figures by Alana Taylor and Kaitlynn Zoller, who had 11 and 10 kills, respectively. Molly Belcher posted 37 assists from the setter position.

The Navy women’s tennis team wrapped the fall season for the team, while select individuals will compete in this weekend’s ITA/USTA Atlantic Region Championship in Norfolk, Va., beginning on Friday.
The Mids closed the season Sunday hosting the Navy Blue & Gold Invitational at the Brigade Sports Complex by winning a pair of doubles matches against UMBC. The Mids also faced off in doubles play against James Madison Sunday.
“It was a culmination of a weekend where there were three evenly-matched teams that went after it. I felt pretty good about the doubles today,” said Navy head coach Keith Puryear. “We are starting to do some of the things we have been trying to preach to the ladies all fall. It was a pretty good effort all around. To win two of three against UMBC is strong for us and I thought we were in every match against James Madison. There were two matches that we kind of let slip away from us, but it was a real solid performance for us.”
After getting swept in the three doubles matches against James Madison,
Navy returned by winning two-of-three doubles matches against UMBC. The tandem of Kaufmann and Snook defeated Isabel Aldunate and Kiri Hadji, 8-4. Sears paired with Abby Shewalter to beat Heidi Danielsson and Josefin Stange-Jonsson, 8-6.

Of course, great teachers have to understand swing mechanics, but they must also be able to connect with students on an emotional level. This is the desired quality that leads many golfers to look for a woman teaching pro. “Female instructors put me at ease in a different way,” says Mary Zorcik, a 55-year-old weekend golfer from Foxfire Village, N.C. Mary’s husband, Lenny, 72, also prefers taking lessons from a woman. “Like me, a female pro has never had the luxury of relying on brute force to hit the ball well, so her swing is more technically sound,” he says.
For the first time, Golf Digest has ranked the 50 Best Women Teachers in America, as voted by their peers. We sent ballots to more than 1,100 female PGA of America members and LPGA Teaching & Club Professionals, and they produced a list of instructors with a combined 1,329 years of teaching experience in 21 states. Among our honorees you’ll find a major champion, groundbreaking mental-game coaches and doctors of education. Best of all, every one of our teachers is taking appointments from the public.
