COLUMBIA—Four Gamecocks earned All-SEC accolades, the SEC office announced on Monday.
Anass Essayi, Filip Demsar, Rachel Glenn and Dylan Targgart all were named to All-SEC teams for their performances at the SEC Indoor Championships.
Essayi earned All-SEC honors after his SEC title performance in the men’s Mile. He burst onto the scene for Carolina, making his debut at the indoor conference meet. He won the Mile with an SEC Indoor Championships’ meet record time of 3:57.37 and became the first Gamecock to ever run a Mile in under four minutes in the process.
Demsar earned All-SEC honors in the men’s 60-meter hurdles. Demsar ran a time of 7.75 in the SEC final to finish in third place and earn his first career All-SEC accolade. Demsar’s time was a season-best and ranked 21st in the NCAA this season.
Glenn finished as the SEC women’s high jump runner-up at the indoor conference meet. She cleared a season-best 1.88m/6-2 to finish second overall. Glenn’s performance marked a season-best and is tied for the third-best mark in the country this season. The all-conference honor marks the second for Glenn. She also earned All-SEC honors for her outdoor high jump title in 2021.
Dylan Targgart earned a Freshman All-SEC award for his performance in the men’s shot put. Targgart finished as the highest-placing freshman in the event. He took 10th place and tossed the shot a personal-best mark of 18.39m/60-4.
Glenn is set for competition along with a handful of other Gamecocks at the NCAA Indoor Championships on March 11 and 12.
