Coach Mangus Reflects on Season, Recruiting; Previews Spring | Spurs Up

"In response to the recognition as a top recruiter, Mangus said, 'it's not a place South Carolina has gotten a lot of players in the past and those guys from New Jersey are highly rated so that's probably where it comes from. It's nice to be recognized in that group, though recruiting is definitely a team effort among the staff.'"

LaKaya Brookins continues to impress.

In a return to the facility where she won her first national title back in 2009, South Carolina senior LaKya Brookins ended her collegiate indoor career in the strongest of forms by winning the 60-meter dash at a collegiate record time of 7.09 Saturday night at Texas A&M University.

D.C. United Down Chicago Fire 1-0 in Carolina Challenge Cup | Goal.com
This story is cool for two reasons. 1.) Blake Brettschneider, former USC striker and current DC United rookie, scored the winning goal in a 1-0 match. 2.) The match was played in Charleston, SC. Maybe South Carolina's first major professional sports team could be an MLS franchise?
