South Carolina returns seven individual NCAA outdoor qualifiers from last year’s squad and all four members of the women’s 4×100-meter relay who earned a bid to Eugene, Ore.

Last Time Out
The Gamecocks wrapped up the 2014 indoor season at the NCAA Indoor Championships in Albuquerque, N.M. Senior high jumper Jeannelle Scheper captured her second-consecutive NCAA Indoor silver medal. The women’s 4×400-meter relay squad of freshmen Precious Holmes, Briana Haith and Marisa Bellamy along with sophomore Tyler Brockington earned a spot on the podium with their seventh-place finish. The team saved their best for last, running the fastest time of the season at the NCAA event at 3:33.95. Sophomore Sarah Graham made her NCAA debut in Albuquerque after earning a bid in the pentathlon. Graham’s strong performance yielded a total of 3,968 points and a 16th-place finish.

The performances propelled the Gamecocks to a 19th-place finish in the women’s ranks. All six athletes earned All-America honors from the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) for their efforts.

The Gamecocks host the 21st annual Weems Baskin Invitational next Fri., Mar. 28 and Sat., Mar. 29.
