This year's USC women's soccer team has had one of its best years ever. The team won 12 games this season, and is ranked the number 20 team in the nation.
If you have been a faithful watcher of the lady Gamecocks you know that defense has been the teams main identity.
The Gamecocks have been led by senior All- SEC first team goal keeper Sabrina D'angolo. The Canadian has been an impact player for the lady Gamecocks every since she arrived in 2011. The senior posted twelve shout out victories in 2013 alone .
Coach Shelley Smith says its going to be hard to replace D'angolo because a player with her experience and ability only comes around once in a lifetime.
"We have been preparing for a long time for the day that this would come and we would replace her I mean its going to be really hard she a great player and leader out here on the field but we have been preparing," says Smith.
D'angolo has been a starter with the Gamecocks since her freshmen year. She has racked up honors as 2011 SEC freshman of the year, 2011 First team all SEC, 2013 First team all SEC, and 2013 SEC defensive player of the year.D'angolo has 36 career wins and 19 total shutouts which is really impressive for a goalkeeper.
Sabrina hopes to keep playing soccer after graduation.
"Umm I'm hoping to play somewhere professionally whether that be over seas or here in the states" says D'angolo.
The Lady Gamecocks soccer team and soccer fans will remember forever the goalkeeper named Sabrina D'angolo.
