The men's team had a winless week as they lost to Charlotte and New Mexico by counts of 2-1, dropping them out of the top 25. The Gamecocks (9-6-1, 4-2-1 C-USA) will play their final regular season game at home on Friday against Kentucky before the Conference USA Tournament.

However, the women's team is still dominant. With a 2-0 win over Ole Miss on senior night on Thursday (Savannah McCaskill and Sophie Groff supplied the goals), the second-ranked Gamecocks posted an undefeated conference record with 11 wins, no ties, and no losses. The final regular season record was 17-0-1; the only tie came against Oklahoma back in August. Carolina will play tonight as the #1 seed in the SEC Tournament against the #8 seed Texas A&M in Orange Beach, Alabama. The Gamecocks defeated the Aggies in the regular season 1-0 on September 29, thanks to a 87th minute goal by McCaskill.


The men's team was off this past week and will compete in the Ka'anapali Collegiate in Lahaina, Hawaii this weekend.

The 19th ranked women's team finished tied for first with Wake Forest in the Landfall Tradition with an overall score of (-5). Senior Katelyn Dambaugh led the way AGAIN for the Gamecocks as she finished tied for 5th after shooting a -4.


The men's squad was in North Carolina for the Charlotte Invitational this past weekend. The top performance was that of freshman Scotty Cameron's, who won the third-place match in his respective class. Up next is the Bulldog Scramble this weekend in Athens, GA.

Last Monday saw the women's squad concluding play in the ITA Carolina Regionals with a heartbreaking loss in the championship match for Caroline Dailey and Mia Horvit (doubles). Their next competition, the Jack Kramer Collegiate Invitational (Los Angeles, CA), starts Thursday.

Cross Country

The women's team finished 13th overall at the SEC Championships in Fayetteville, Arkansas on Friday. Senior Mary Reiser was the top Gamecock as she finished in 61st place with a time of 22:09.9. The NCAA Southeast Regionals will be held on Friday, November 11th.


The team finished 1-1 for the week after defeating LSU on Friday 3-1 and losing via a sweep against Texas A&M. Up next is a meeting with Mississippi State in Starkville, Miss on Friday.
