Columbia, S.C. – South Carolina volleyball took a break from preseason practice Wednesday as they visited patients at Palmetto Richland Children’s Hospital. As a part of Team Gamecocks, the entire team went room to room, visited with the children and handed out t-shirts and autographed balls to the young patients.

“Anytime you get a chance to be a role model to children, it is always fulfilling,” said sophomore Sarah Morgan. “We really enjoyed ourselves and loved seeing the smiles on the children’s faces.”

The team split time between the children’s floor and the Cancer Center. This marks the first of several community opportunities the team will participate in for the fall.

“This was a good experience for the team and it was good to go outside of the gym and impact children’s lives in a positive manner,” said junior Niece Curry.

The Gamecocks return to two-a-day practices Thursday morning at 8:30 a.m. at the Volleyball Competition Facility. Afternoon practice is slated for 7:30 p.m. All practices are open to the public.
