Two Gamecocks Earn Academic Honor From United Soccer Coaches
COLUMBIA, S.C. – South Carolina seniors Grace Fisk and Mikayla Krzeczowski have earned spots on the United Soccer Coaches Scholar All-South Region Teams, the coaching organization announced Monday. Both Fisk and Krzeczowski were named to the First Team, both firsts for Krzeczowski and Fisk.
Fisk boasts a 3.68 GPA in Criminology and led the Carolina defense to the most shutouts in the country in 2019 along with setting the program record for a single season. The 0.32 goals against average was also the best in program history. The recognition for Fisk adds to her long list of accomplishments in 2019 where she was named the SEC Defender of the Year, All-Southeast Region, All-SEC and a United Soccer Coaches All-American.
Krzeczowski, who holds a 3.39 GPA in her Visual Communicaitons degree, was the 2019 SEC Goalkeeper of the Year and led the country with 16 individual clean sheets, good enough for a new single-season program record. Her 0.33 goals against average also is the best in South Carolina history and her impressive consecutive matches started streak ended perfectly with 89-straight starts over her four years in goal in Columbia.
Both Krzeczowski and Fisk graduate in December and plan on pursuing professional careers in soccer.
South Carolina finished the 2019 season in the NCAA quarterfinals after defeating Samford, Notre Dame and Kansas in the NCAA Tournament. South Carolina claimed the 2019 SEC Tournament title in early November with a 1-0 victory over Arkansas, the fifth overall title in program history.
