Agreed, this is my experience also, though been out of club for the past year so it may have changed. There is apparently a form to email recs but never heard of a coach doing that or it working versus the scouting done by Cal south ODP at Nationals,State. Im sure there's some "buddy" picks going on between coaches and scouts but there is still no question the young ladies listed deserve the recognition and should take pride in it. Are the 8 girls from Legends and 7 from SD surf and So Cal acad all from the same team? Great accomplishment if so. Just not sure that number includes the other Legends, Surf or SCA teams too. Same question for all the top selected teams - are they listed by club or team? names are not clear for all of them.
