  1. The past year for the South Carolina Women's Golf program was a story of ups and downs, and then potentially ups again. That final chapter is writing itself right now. The program has been developed into an SEC and national powerhouse under head coach Kalen Anderson: the Gamecocks were SEC Tournament runners-up in 2015 and 2018, while winning three consecutive NCAA Tournament Regionals from 2015-17. The Gamecocks finished 10th in the NCAAT Regionals in both 2018 and 2019, failing to make the final cut of best 6 team scores. Coming into the 2020 season the Gamecocks had perhaps one of their most deep and talented teams in memory. But it all came to an abrupt end in March, when the NCAA shut down all athletic program activities going forward due to the Coronavirus pandemic. This was particularly heartbreaking for two Gamecock seniors in Lois Kaye Go and Ana Pelaez. But things seemed to re-align themselves when the NCAA chose to give seniors an extra year of player-eligibility, and both Go and Pelaez - All-Americans both - chose to return to USC to make one more run at a National Championship. They join returning sophomore Pauline Roussin-Bouchard, who tore up the USC record book for a freshman earning two First-Team All-America honors, breaking multiple program records, and holding on to the No. 1 spot in the women's World Amateur Golf Ranking for most of the season. It doesn't stop there. Returning players Mathilde Claisse and Smith Knaffle, and incoming freshmen Paula Kirner and Kaiyuree Moodley provide tremendous depth of talent and experience. Last but not least, the COVID-19 crisis allowed for the addition of Kent State transfer Pimnipa Panthong. Panthong, a former 2017 MAC Freshman of the Year, 2-time MAC Golfer of the Year and 3-time All-American at Kent State, was initially looking to continue her career at the professional level. But the LPGA Q-Series, which Panthong was set to join, delayed their 2020 season to begin in 2021 due to the pandemic. So with Panthong suddenly having an open year AND an additional year of NCAA playing eligibility, she chose to transfer to South Carolina. So the team returns intact from last season, and with additional talent - essentially our version of a women's golfing "Dream Team". So can they re-ignite the excitement they held for 2019-2020, before its sudden end?? https://rankings.golfweek.com/rankings/index.html?T=wt WEST POINT, Miss. – The University of South Carolina's women's golf team finished strong to secure the team championship at The Ally, while sophomore Pauline Roussin-Bouchard used a lights out performance to make history at the Old Waverly Golf Club on Wednesday. Roussin-Bouchard continued her blistering performance from Tuesday by shooting a 7-under 65, tying her lowest round as a Gamecock, to finish with a 14-under 202, the lowest 54-hole tournament score in program history. The sophomore tallied seven birdies in the final round to secure her second tournament win, joining some elite company as just the sixth Carolina golfer to win multiple tournament championships. Roussin-Bouchard now has four top-5 finishes, and six top-10 finishes in her Carolina career. https://gamecocksonline.com/news/2020/10/21/womens-golf-gamecocks-and-roussin-bouchard-take-top-honors-at-the-ally.aspx
  2. South Carolina holds in a goal-line stand (or close enough, from the SC 15-yd line) in the final seconds, to defeat 15th/14th-ranked Auburn 30-22. The Gamecocks improve to 2-2 on the all-SEC schedule for 2020, while Auburn falls to 2-2. With the victory, the Gamecocks defeat Auburn for the first time since 1933, breaking a losing stretch of 8 games, all since joining the SEC. It's also the 2nd win versus a top-25 ranked opponent since last season's upset of UGA in Athens. USC rebounded from a sluggish first half on both sides of the ball - the Gamecocks only trailed by 2 16-14 at the half, despite being out-gained in yards 253-119 in the first half, thanks to Auburn stumbling with two 2nd quarter interceptions from Tigers QB Bo Nix. Nix came into the game with only one INT on the season, but was induced into 3 interceptions, with DBs Jaycee Horn and Jaylen Dickerson each recording their first interceptions of their Gamecocks careers. In the 2nd half, the Gamecocks - not exactly known for major 2nd-half adjustments under Head Coach Will Muschamp - played a stronger game on both offense and defense. The offense out-gained Auburn 161-87 after halftime, with both RBs Kevin Harris and Deshaun Fenrick having strong running efforts. And the Gamecock defense continued to pressure and harass Nix, forcing him to 5 for 12 passing after halftime, with 0 TDs plus the 3rd and final INT for him. South Carolina now prepares for LSU next Saturday in Baton Rouge, LA. The game is set for 7:00 pm eastern, and will be broadcast on ESPN....
  3. Teams trade field goals, and Gamecocks lead it 30-22 and take the ball on offense, with 6:49 left to play......
  4. Well, the team has been improving on both sides of the ball as the game has progressed. Just scored a touchdown after intercepting AU's QB for the 3rd time thus far. Gamecocks lead 27-19 with about a minute left in the 3rd Qtr.....
  5. No offense for us, and no defense. Not the best recipe for victory......
  6. The 2020 Women's Soccer season is underway. Last season, the Gamecocks were picked to finish 2nd in the conference behind the Texas A&M Aggies. They would complete the conference schedule undefeated at 7-0-3, but fail to win the regular season title on points, and enter the SEC Tournament as the #3 Seed. But they would go on to win the SEC Tournament for the 2nd time in program history, defeating the #1 Seed Arkansas Razorbacks 1-0 in the Championship match, and ride the momentum to the NCAA Tournament Quarterfinals for the 3rd time in 4 seasons. This season, seven starters return, and the Gamecocks were picked to finish 2nd again, this time behind Arkansas. Coming into yesterday (Friday October 16th), the 15th-ranked Gamecocks were the top SEC East Division team in the COVID-19-shortened season of just conference opponents, at 3-1-0 (3-1-0), and the 3rd-ranked Razorbacks the top SEC West Division team at 4-0-0 (4-0-0). The Gamecocks traveled to Fayetteville to take on the Razorbacks in a critical regular-season contest. The Gamecocks won 2-1!! https://gamecocksonline.com/news/2020/10/16/womens-soccer-no-15-gamecocks-stun-no-3-arkansas-on-the-road.aspx The Gamecocks next play Sunday the 25th, as they host 1-1-1 (1-1-1) Florida at Stone Stadium at 2 PM....
  7. Gamecocks win their first game of the 2020 season 41-7 over Vanderbilt, and improve to 1-2, (1-2). The Commodores fall to 0-3 (0-3). Next week the Gamecocks host Auburn at Williams-Brice for a 12:00 pm game....
  8. Vanderbilt has a short possession, and punts. Ryan Hillinski is now in the game.....
  9. Gamecocks hold Vandy to 5 plays and out, and get a short punt out of bounds for excellent field position at the Vandy 47. It's pouring rain. Dak Joyner takes the hand-off all the way for 47 yds and scores!! A nice sign of killer-instinct from our new OC Mike Bobo. Gamecocks now lead 41-7....
  10. Gamecocks add a field goal from PK Parker White to extend the lead to 27-7. Vanderbilt stalls out on their own possession, and punt away the ball. On their first offensive play at 1st and 10 at the 12-yd line, Harris takes the hand-off and he's gone - 88 yds for the TD!! Harris now has 21 carries for 171 yds and 2 TDs. Gamecocks lead 34-7, 13 minutes left to play.....
  11. Gamecocks respond to Vandy's response, and its turning into a bit of a shootout to start the 2nd half. USC drives 75 yds in 9 plays, with QB Collin Hill rushing in from the Vandy 10-yd line for his 2nd rushing TD of the game, and the Gamecocks extend their lead again to 24-7....
  12. Vanderbilt responds with a drive across the field, and they score their first points. 17-7.....
  13. Lots of chippiness between both teams. There's been a light rain for most of the game. Coming out for the 2nd half, the chippiness and talking between the teams continue - we stop Vanderbilt to open the half, and they try a fake punt attempt for the first down, and we stop them. We get the ball back deep in Vandy's side of the field at the 35-yd line! Gamecocks drive the 35 yds in 3 plays, with RB Kevin Harris galloping in for the touchdown on a 25-yd run. 17-0 Gamecocks....
  14. OK, here we go - the Battle of the Boastless. Kick-off is at 12:00 at Vanderbilt Stadium in Nashville, TN., and will be broadcast on the SEC Network. We could sure use a win, if the Commodores would be ac-Commodating.....
