COLUMIBA, S.C. — Sophomore Danielle Au from the Gamecock women’s soccer team has been named AgSouth Athlete of the Week.

Au had a big weekend for the Gamecock to keep South Carolina in the thick of the SEC title hunt. Au scored two goals in the opening 18 minutes against Alabama before scoring the final goal against No. 22 Auburn to lead South Carolina to their first six-point weekend in SEC play this season. Au scored the game-winner against the Crimson Tide for her first goals in eight matches as Carolina¹s attacking midfielder. It was the first multi-goal game of her career. She then bounced back to score the clinching goal against the Tigers for South Carolina¹s second win against a ranked opponent this season. The three-goal weekend was the best for Au in her career.
