Noble and Greenough girls soccer head coach Beth Reilly is admittedly someone who doesn’t often hand out lavish praise.
When she speaks about her junior goalkeeper Eliza Teplow (Wayland, Mass.), there is no hyperbole needed. Reilly just sticks to the evidence that she sees each and every day on the field.
"I suspect Eliza would be among the top goalkeepers at virtually any college program in the country, starting today," Reilly said. "I have zero doubt about that.
"I don’t say that lightly, but I am 100 percent confident that she could fit into a college roster anywhere right now."
