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.
Currently...still competing professionally, I will be running in the upcoming world championship year, the female face of Puma.
Favorite NCAA Championships Memory: Placing for the first time my freshman year in 400mH and getting the ring.
South Carolina Memories
Why did you choose South Carolina? South Carolina was my last visit. When I came to South Carolina, and met the team, the girls and Coach Frye. I felt like I had a home. Everybody was very friendly and I was running amongst the best athletes in the country. It was a great place for me to excel in track and field.
What are you most looking forward to about coming back to Columbia? Just being back in South Carolina. I haven't really been back since I left. I'm really excited about just being together with my old teammates and celebrating homecoming.

The members of the 2002 NCAA Championship team will be honored in Columbia, S.C., on Nov. 9 and 10 as a part of the All-Sports Reunion.
