NSCAA Division I Women’s All-America Teams

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — For the second time this week, South Carolina forward Savannah McCaskill was honored by the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA) as the organization named the sophomore standout to its Division I Women’s All-America Third Team on Friday.

McCaskill, who received NSCAA First-Team All-South Region accolades Thursday, becomes the sixth All-America selection and the fourth All-American overall for the Gamecocks. Friday’s announcement marked the third-straight year that a Gamecock has earned the distinction. Former goalkeeper Sabrina D’Angelo was named an NSCAA First-Team All-American for the 2013 and 2014 seasons.

McCaskill turned in another productive season for the South Carolina attack, boasting career highs in points (29), goals (10) and assists (9). Her 29 points were good for the sixth-highest season total in program history, and the Irmo, S.C., native also ranked in the top five in the SEC in total assists and assists per game (0.45).

The First-Team All-SEC selection recorded at least two points in nine of South Carolina’s 20 matches this fall, and her final goal of the year against No. 8 Florida (Oct. 22) made her the first Gamecock to tally double-digit goals in a season since Raina Johnson accomplished the feat in 2013.

“I am very proud of Savannah and I was happy to see her recognized among a very talented group of players,” women’s soccer coach Shelley Smith said. “It’s very impressive to be on that list as a sophomore. She has worked hard to continue to get better as a player.”

McCaskill earned SEC Freshman of the Year honors in 2014 after notching 15 points on five goals and five assists. The sophomore was named to the SEC Preseason Watch List prior to this season, and she will enter her junior campaign ranked eighth in assists (14) and 10th in points (44) in program history.
