It is the second consecutive year Oh has earned the honor
BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – South Carolina softball pitcher Kelsey Oh has been named to the SEC Community Service Team, as announced by the conference on Tuesday, May 10. It is the second consecutive year Oh has earned the honor.
The SEC sponsors Community Service Teams for all 21 league sponsored sports. The Community Service Team looks to highlight an athlete from each school who gives back to their community in superior service efforts.
Oh, a graduate student, has pitched in 19 games this season for Carolina and holds a 5-2 record. She had recorded 37 strikeouts while holding opponents to a .214 batting average. She earned her master’s degree this spring in international business after earning her bachelors in marketing and management in the spring of 2021.
Oh is a member of South Carolina’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and served as the marketing and public relations senior officer for two years. She has also served as the softball team’s community service liaison since 2019. Oh helps to educate her teammates, alerts them of up-to-date community service opportunities, and aids in raising their community service hours from year to year.
She recently volunteered on Election Day, handing out snacks, water, and masks to those waiting in lines in low-income areas. Oh continually collects toiletries donations from the team to donate to Transitions, which is a homeless shelter for men and women in Columbia. During her time with South Carolina, she has often visited with children at Epworth’s Children’s Home and has participated in Toys for Tots. Oh has spent time during the summer and fall working with a local charter school, reading books to classes and participating in activities with the students both in the classroom and on the playground. She assisted with the Fall Festival presented by Milestones. Milestones is an organization that works to provide memories and experiences to those living in foster care. Oh also taught a self-defense class and volunteered with the Salvation Army.
