Nelson, NCAA confusion stripped one year eligibility

Amanda Nelson was set to play with Limestone College this season, but says was told on her arrival she lost one year of eligibility because the NCAA had the wrong high school graduation date. Ms. Nelson says she had no clue she wouldn’t be cleared to play this season.

“All the hard work that I did to get here was useless, like taken from me and I was having thoughts in my head wondering is soccer still my sport to play or should I just run track. After all the things I’ve been through with soccer, always wondering if it’s still worth it to keep pushing. Definitely since it has been corrected and I have one more year left to play, I still think its worth to play.”

Ms.Nelson says her high school, Layman E. Scott in Cayman Brac, has sent the NCAA what the need to fix the error. She spent two years of her eligibility playing with South Georgia state college. Limestone College is an NCAA Division 2 Programme.
