ROOSTER CROWS

Since first competing in the SEC in 1992, the South Carolina Women's Tennis has enjoyed consistent success in a league that is arguably the toughest in the nation. Since the league expanded to 12 teams, the Gamecocks are one of six SEC schools to win 100 league matches, and their .537 (124-107) winning percentage ranks fifth in the conference.

Softball senior center fielder Lauren Lackey became the first Gamecock to earn first team All-SEC honors since 2003 after leading the Gamecocks with a .401 batting average and tallying the second-highest average in the SEC with her .388 mark.



FAN PHOTO OF THE DAY

This was our favorite photo from last night's Fan Fest in Greenville. This young boy was so excited to take a picture with Coach Spurrier; he just watched him in awe at first and seemed to be shaking a little! Check out more photos from the event here on our Facebook page.
