This year marks the tenth anniversary of the University of South Carolina Women's NCAA Outdoor Track and Field title that they secured in Baton Rouge, La., on June 1, 2002. The NCAA Championship was the school's first-ever team title in any sport for the Gamecocks. Thirteen members of the squad combined to earn 128 All-American honors over the course of their collegiate careers.
In the weeks leading up to the All-Sports Reunion, GamecocksOnline.com will feature members of the 2002 NCAA Championship team.

South Carolina Memories
Why did you choose SC: My sister and I both went to South Carolina to run track, and when we think about it, we can't exactly point out one thing. We liked the academics at South Carolina and really enjoyed the track atmosphere.
