4. INTERNATIONAL: Women on duty in Caribbean

Three U.S. college players -- Natalya Manyan of D1 Oral Roberts and Omalyn Davis and Yolanda Hamilton of NAIA power Lindsey Wilson -- spent last week helping Jamaica's Reggae Girls qualify for this fall's Women's Gold Cup, which will serve as qualifying for the 2007 Women's World Cup in China.

Alicia Wilson, who is in her second year as an assistant coach at West Florida, also played for Jamaica, which beat Bermuda, 7-0, and Haiti, 3-0.

Trinidad & Tobago's Soca Princesses won the other Caribbean group with easy victories over Suriname (5-1) and the Dominican Republic (7-0). They benefited from the experience of U.S. collegians such as Katrina Meyer (Murray State), Jenelle Nedd (West Texas A&M) and Patrice Superville (Brewton Parker) but was missing stars Maylee Attin Johnson, who transferred from NAIA school to Kennesaw State, and Akhela Darcel Mollon, who plays for South Carolina.
