Ugh, You need a lot of research,
Trust me a few years back Doom and Static top tier 16/18U teams played a comparable schedule of the Outlaws, Lasers, and Bandits and had their share of success.
Look at the Lasers and Outlaws and you will see yes they too celebrate their ladies that went on to play DII and DIII ball.
Heck, several Doom and Static players finished their careers with the Bandits who by all accounts are the pentacle of midwest fastpitch softball.
Playing 18 and over the past 4 years I can tell you this...The top talent at DII/DIII or JC/NAIA can and do compete with D1 talent over the summer.
You have to understand a lot of these ladies look for a school that fits what they want out of and education 1st as it should be....
