Koehler Named to SEC's Community Service Team
The senior has totaled over 150 hours of community outreach in her time as a Gamecock
COLUMBIA, S.C. – The SEC announced its annual Community Service Team for volleyball on Wednesday morning. South Carolina senior Courtney Koehler represents the Gamecocks on this year’s squad. The SEC sponsors Community Service Teams for all 21 league sponsored sports, highlighting an athlete from each school who gives back to their community in superior service efforts.
As she heads into the final semester of her collegiate career, Koehler has totaled over 150 hours of community outreach at South Carolina. She has spent the majority of her time on four projects: working at Christopher Towers senior living center, Transitions Homeless Center, the Pawmetto Lifeline animal shelter, and working as a mentor at a local middle school. Koehler also has spent time collecting donations for a local women’s shelter. Already this year, she has 16.5 hours of service.
Outside of her community outreach, Koehler is a three-time SEC Academic Honor Roll member and has served as an officer in the athletics department’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. She is in year three with the school’s Gamecock Leadership Academy.
Koehler and her teammates are preparing to head west on Wednesday to prepare for another postseason run. The Gamecocks (19-11) will play No. 10 Colorado State on Friday at 8 p.m. ET in Seattle, Wash. in the first round of the NCAA tournament. Be sure to follow the team’s trip on Twitter and Instagram.
