110 - CAPE GAZETTE - Friday, March 7 - Monday, March 10, 2008 Hastings adds her soccer talents to the Maryland Terrapins By Dave Frederick Cape Gazette staff Lydia Hastings was a three-time All-State striker for the Cape Henlopen soccer team. She is a rocket-fast player who can be two places at once - in front of a defender and gone. Hastings is now gone from Cape, having graduated in mid- year, and is already a scholarship freshman at the University of Maryland where she is practicing everyday with a Terrapins varsity squad. "There are" a lot of great players on this team and we are all play- ing hard to earn a starting posi- tion," Lydia wrote in an email interview. "But so far I do see myself as a starting player." Maryland Coach Brian Pensky said of Hastings, "We are ecstatic that Lydia is here now, in the spring of 2008, to put her in the best position possible to succeed next fall."

She also plays for the plays for the AC Diablos in the Women's Premier Soccer League and last summer scored eight goals to lead them to the Mid-Atlantic Conference title and the Eastern Championship game. "College is over in the spring, then I play for the Diablos, but I can be called to play for the national team at any time and when I am it's just a matter or organizing schedules," Lydia said. On Feb. 25 at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., Hastings scored three goals and had an assist in the U18 team's four wins LYDIA HASTINGS against West Coast college teams which included 3 -0 over Pepper dine, 4-1 over UC Irvine and 4-2 over UCLA. Women's collegiate soccer had a lesser season in the spring than the regular season in the fall. The U.S. U18 team is sched- uled to play an international tour- nament in La Manga, Spain, March 7-16. Lydia was pitched the question about seeing herself as a future Olympic player. "Possibly. -I will see how everything works out with the national team and college and a pro career after college, but it will always be on my mind," she said. Hastings is majoring in engi- neering, which is also always on her mind. Tech Continued from page 109 then go on improving and end up playing in college. But I'm sure there will be times this year when we will be an adventure, but we're not afraid to go out and play people."
