Guru Report: Philly Summer League Rosters

By Mel Greenberg

The Philadelphia/Suburban Women's Summer League will begin play at the Kelly Bolish Gym in Horsham, Pa., at the home of the Renegades AAU team on June 16 and then continue Tuesdays and Thursdays until the playoffs, veteran commissioner David Kessler said Friday in a note sent around with rosters from Thursday night's draft.

The Guru will post the schedules of the 11 teams when the commish finishes putting it in play. Kessler said he probably won't schedule action on Tuesday, July 5, considering it is right on top of the conclusion of the holiday weekend.

There may be some adjustment to the rosters and Kessler is still accepting applications to bring every team up to 11 players, though a few that are under the max right now could probably survive without having to go deep into the lineup unless no-shows begin causing some problems.

Now, hopefully with a little cut and paste out of the email here are the rosters. Additionally, some of you journalistic or blogerette wannabes who would like to write features off the league for the Guru's blog send a note because there will be nights that the WNBA will be calling him away from the local summer action.

Attempts are being made to set up a system to provide coverage of the games, which will be one doubleheader and a singleton each of the Tuesdays and Thursdays with each team also having one bye along the way.

Teams listed as Draft Team I and Draft Team II will be assigned a color name to go with the squads by Kessler prior to competiton.

Now, here's the list as the rosters stand for now.
