All of that needs to be taken into consideration. When my DD pitched for the JV, people would come up and say "Oh, thank you. We haven't won in years." There were girls that had never played before. I watched our neighbor girl sign up and the form asked what positions have you played? She put "all". I was fairly impressed until she said "Oh, I mean none."
My DD never had a goal of going to college, so it was different for us.
