| No Comments | No TrackBacks
As Women's Soccer prepares to host Arkansas on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. in the final regular season home game of the year, we talked to the seniors about what Senior Day and potentially their last opportunity to play in a game at Stone Stadium means to them. The seniors will be joined by their families and loved ones before the game to be honored on the field.

Starting line-ups at Stone Stadium, home sweet home for the soccer seniors.

Natalie Aaron:

"To me, it is a celebration of the journey we as a senior class have been on for the past four years. It represents our class's achievements of making a name for our program and writing our place in history. I could not have asked for a better group of seniors and feel so blessed to have gotten to experience this with them. Stone Stadium is by far one of the most elite complexes in the nation. We are so spoiled with our field and fans. Without them, this experience would not have been complete. To them, thank you for all the support you have provided us over the past four years. We truly appreciate each and every one of you." 

Ellen Fahey:

"It means the end of a great 4 years here at South Carolina. I have been so blessed with the friends I have made on this team especially all the seniors. I could not have asked for a better group of girls to spend 4 years with. This potentially being my last game at Stone Stadium brings an end to all the great memories and victories that we as a team have had here, memories that I will carry with me the rest of my life. I am excited I get to end those memories with such an amazing team!!"

Ali Glemser:

"It means a bittersweet end to the four years I've been a Lady Gamecock. Bitter because it will potentially be the last game I ever play on this field, and sweet because I'm honored to end my soccer career at USC beside such amazing girls."

Kayla Grimsley:

"It means the world. The fans here at this stadium and this university are the best I have experienced anywhere in the four years I've played. It's a bittersweet feeling knowing that I may never get to play in front of these fans again. I'm ready to see what's in store in the future, but I will forever miss Gamecock Nation."

Lolly Holland:

"I have had the most amazing 4 years here at Carolina. It has been an honor and a privilege playing in front of Gamecock Nation and these outstanding fans. It is such a bittersweet feeling playing at Stone Stadium for potentially the last time ever. I am so proud to be a GAMECOCK and I couldn't have asked for a more INCREDIBLE group of teammates and coaches to share this journey with."

Roya Mojarab:

"It means being done with all four years, all those years of good times and bad, building a family with people I will never forget, another step in life."

Maria Petroni:

"This potentially being our last ever home game makes Sunday a very special game. Playing soccer with all of these girls, especially our senior class, has been one of the best experiences of my entire life. I will never forget these four years, and I will miss every second of it when I am gone. It will be an honor to play with my team on our home field, in front of our home crowd, for possibly the last time of our careers."

Kortney Rhoades:

"It's both sad and exciting. Knowing how far the senior class has come as a whole and how much we have contributed to the program is such a great feeling. But also knowing that this could be my last game at home is so upsetting, this team has been my family for the last four years and not seeing the girls and coaches as often is going to be a hard thing to deal with. But it's exciting to move on to a new chapter of my life knowing that I've given everything I had to these girls that I both look up to and hold so close to my heart. I'm going to miss this so much."

Jocelyn Spurrier:

"It's the bittersweet finality of 4 years of the best memories I've had in my life, shared with best friends that will now be a part of the rest of my life."
