- Women’s soccer player Blakely Mattern was named the SEC Defensive Player of the Week after anchoring a back line that allowed zero goals and just two shots in 180 minutes of soccer.
- Senior volleyball player Ivana Kujundzic was named SEC Offensive Player of the Week, leading the Gamecocks to a tourney sweep of Clemson, College of Charleston and Winthrop at the Big Orange Bash this weekend.
Did you know? Only Clemson (106) and Georgia (61) have played more games against the Gamecocks in football than N.C. State (56).
We’re finally starting to get into the fall season. It’s been a long summer for me without any Gamecock sports. The first official home event starts tonight (men’s soccer was an exhibition) and we’re also just seven days away from football season. Here’s what’s going on today:
- Women’s soccer hosts College of Charleston tonight at Stone Stadium at 7 p.m. Tonight is Faculty/Staff Night. Students that show their ID at the game will receive free pizza. Regular ticket prices are $5 for adults and $3 for youth.
- If you’re going to be in the Vista tonight or plan on going to Coach Spurrier’s call-in show, get there a little early for the Carolina Calls Pep Rally at Wild Wing in the Vista. The band Tokyo Joe will play before and after the call-in show (which runs from 7-8 p.m.) while the band and cheer team will peform at 6:30 p.m.
And here’s some links from around the web:
Did you know? South Carolina senior outside hitter Ivana Kujundzic continues a streak that will be at 14 years for the volleyball team to have an international student on the roster. Kujundzic was named to the preseason All-SEC team today and has led the Gamecocks in kills each of the last two years.
