Splash Picks Lee in Dispersal Draft

May 21, 1997

The Splash drafted defender Thor Lee, 31, in the Continental Indoor Soccer League's dispersal draft of San Diego Sockers players Tuesday.

Lee (6-0, 170), chosen eighth, had 30 blocks, five goals and eight assists for the Sockers, who will not compete in the CISL this season. His 30 blocks were third-highest on the Sockers and would have been third-highest for the Splash.

Lee played at Cal Sate Northridge, where he earned All-America and All-West Region honors before being drafted by the Lazers in the Major Indoor Soccer League draft.

Dallas traded with Arizona to obtain the first pick and selected goalkeeper Antonio Cortes (5.39 goals-against average last season). Seattle took midfielder Moises Garduno (36 points) and Indiana took defender David Banks (46 blocks). Portland took midfielder Franklin McIntosh (28 goals); and Detroit took midfielder Carlos Farias (1996 rookie of the year).
