Presbyterian College and head women's soccer coach Brad Purcell announced the 2021 fall slate last Tuesday afternoon. The schedule features two exhibition matches to go along with 18 regular-season contests which include nine matches both home and away.
"We are excited about the strength of our non-conference schedule and how that will prepare us for league action," commented Purcell. "It's also been several years since we have played a team from a power five conference which adds something different and exciting for our players as well."

The Blue Hose begins the season with a pair of exhibitions. The first one is set for a 7 p.m. kickoff against Emmanuel College on August 11 at Martin Stadium. PC returns to the pitch on August 14 for one final matchup with Western Carolina at 7 p.m.

Williams Nominated for 2021 NCAA Woman of the Year

 

Recently graduated Presbyterian College volleyball player Trinity Williams has been named PC’s nominee for the 2021 NCAA Woman of the Year Award.

Rooted in Title IX and directed by the NCAA Committee on Women’s Athletics, the NCAA Woman of the Year program celebrates the accomplishments of female college athletes who have exhausted their eligibility and distinguished themselves in academics, athletics, service and leadership throughout their collegiate careers.

Over 220,000 women are competing in college sports, and this year the NCAA received 535 nominations across its three divisions for this prestigious award.

Earlier this spring, Williams was selected to the Big South All-Academic Team for the second straight season. During the spring season, the Anderson, S.C., native had started all eight matches for Presbyterian and recorded five double-doubles before suffering a season-ending injury.

Back in May, Williams graduated from PC in just three years as a Political Science major and an English/Pre-Law double minor with a 3.60 GPA. She was also a member of the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee and started a chapter of the NAACP at PC this past year.

Conference offices will select up to two nominees for NCAA Woman of the Year from their pool of member school nominees. Next, the Woman of the Year Selection Committee will identify the top 10 honorees in each of the NCAA’s three divisions.

From those 30 honorees, the selection committee will select three finalists from each division. The 2021 NCAA Woman of the Year will then be named later this fall at an award ceremony in Indianapolis.

 

Combs Earns NCAA Woman of the Year Nomination

 

Recently graduated Presbyterian College women’s golfer Serina Combs has been named a nominee for the 2021 NCAA Woman of the Year Award. Combs joins Trinity Williams as PC’s two Woman of the Year nominees.

Rooted in Title IX and directed by the NCAA Committee on Women’s Athletics, the NCAA Woman of the Year program celebrates the accomplishments of female college athletes who have exhausted their eligibility and distinguished themselves in academics, athletics, service and leadership throughout their collegiate careers.

Over 220,000 women are competing in college sports, and this year the NCAA received 535 nominations across its three divisions for this prestigious award.

A two-time Big South All-Academic Team member, Combs played in all five tournaments for Presbyterian this spring, leading the team on four occasions. The Lake Worth, Fla., native concluded her Blue Hose career with a 78.64 stroke average, the fourth-lowest in the program’s DI era. Earlier this month, she was named a WGCA All-American Scholar for the fourth consecutive year.

Back in May, Combs graduated from PC as a Political Science and History double major with a 3.89 GPA. She was also the president of Presbyterian’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee. Beginning this fall, Combs is set to attend the University of Florida’s Levin College of Law.

Conference offices will select up to two nominees for NCAA Woman of the Year from their pool of member school nominees. Next, the Woman of the Year Selection Committee will identify the top 10 honorees in each of the NCAA’s three divisions.

From those 30 honorees, the selection committee will select three finalists from each division. The 2021 NCAA Woman of the Year will then be named later this fall at an award ceremony in Indianapolis.
