1. Jacobo Reyes, who played for the USA at the 2017 U.S. Under-17 World Cup
, announced that he was leaving Mexican powerhouse Monterrey,
where he dressed for the first team for the first time in the 2018-19 season, to play at the University of Portland. The Texas-born Reyes entered the Rayados' youth program when he was 14. Three other
players from the 2017 World Cup team are rising sophomores in college: Tyler Shaver (Stanford), Alex Budnik (Dartmouth) and Justin Garces (UCLA). 2. New Mexico men's coach Jeremy Fishbein confirmed that the battle
to reinstate the Lobos' men's program plus three other varsity sports is over. As of July 1, the men and
women's ski teams, women's beach volleyball and men's soccer will cease to exist. An effort to get the New Mexico legislature to fund the programs failed. 3. Debbie Hensley was named the interim head coach at LSU
, where she spent 12 years (2005-16) on its staff. Head coach Brian Lee left for Rice University in May
after 14 years in Baton Rouge. All-American defender Lucy Parker transferred from LSU to UCLA and will be eligible to play for the Bruins as a junior in the 2019 season.
