There was not much recruiting to be done.
"They were ready to play," Sayre said. "They were excited to get started."
The reason he has so much confidence in his current players sticking it out is that attendance was so good during the summer. To help get the program rebooted, he entered the team in a league over the summer and was happy that he had nine girls show up consistently.
"They were there every time," Sayre said. "So I knew that at least we were going to have enough for a team."
While the numbers have grown some since then, he was hoping for even more newcomers.
"I'm a little disappointed in the numbers," Sayre said. "I thought we might have 17 or 18."
Still, he is just happy the Dots once again will be in action this winter.
"I know this year is going to have some ups and downs," Sayre said. "I just want the girls to stay focused."
Poca travels to James Monroe for a scrimmage Saturday and then opens the regular season Thursday, Nov. 29 at Nitro.
"We're just trying to have a good time right now," Sayre said. "Who knows what will happen by the end of the season."
