Cal’s Megan Jesolva – Shouldn’t Be Overlooked
In my haste to get out my belated Pac-10 preview, I made a very regretful omission in my mini-preview of Cal. Specifically, I forgot to mention the return to health of senior Megan Jesolva, a critical piece of the puzzle for the Bears. Jesolva has experience with the US U-23 team among other youth international caps and has the versatility to play all over the pitch. Jesolva was struggling with injuries for most of 2009, but her eight assists in 2008 are a good indication of what she can bring to the table when healthy. And considering she’s played every minute of both of Cal’s matches so far in 2010, it’s safe to say the Bears have one of their cornerstones back in fine form.
