"The opportunities for women through TJC and UT Tyler, is phenomenal at this time. Especially for East Texas," Sting East Texas director of youth development Shannon Orr said.

"Since Sting is such a big club in Dallas, it just carried over to Tyler," said Kailie Holloway of Longview. "It's really great. We're going to get looked at by so many more coaches just because we have the name Sting."
