They are still very young yet. He probably promised them everything under the stars and that it was a romantic relationship, only to find out they were only sexual play things for this sick eff. Molesters do something called grooming to their victims, gain trust and loyalty so they don't even think of it as being violated. People have got to remember how naive they were at that age when reading this. These girls were used and finally understood that a little too late.
But my point was this- it was not too late if they felt sick inside before going there and went anyhow. they could have easily went home and told their parent's instead. By admitting they felt sick inside they are admitting they KNEW something was terribly wrong.
Were there more victims

One wonders if there were other assault victims that have not come forward - clearly they will also need help. What about the parents of these girls - didn't they know or suspect anything?
As much as my heart goes out to the victims, I wonder how they got stuck in the predator's trap in the first place - what was the 'candy', or the lure? Is it the offer of more playing time - maybe more than they would get if they weren't involved with the coach? Did the coach's field performance give anything away - such as undue praise to these girls or setting rivals for the same position as these girls on the bench? Once a girl with a conscience realizes that she's getting advantage due to something other than her skill, there is another level that comes into play - shame and guilt. That shuts the trap.
Other girls on the team are also victimized - by not getting played when they should, and by a lack of guidance in the sportsmanship and teamwork that comes with this great sport.
Feeling no remorse is a big clue to behavior. How many other coaches are currently free to abuse players? Here's another chilling link
