She then joined former Gamecock Blakely Mattern as the only student-athletes in program history to earn a place on both the NSCAA's All-America and Scholar All-America first teams in the same season.
D'Angelo tripled her previous season high in shutouts with 12 this fall and recorded a 0.59 goals against average. For the second time in three seasons, she was named SEC Defensive Player of the Year and earned All-SEC honors for the third consecutive season.
In December, she became the first athlete in a program history to be selected as a semifinalist for the prestigious MAC Hermann Trophy.
