Adrienne Gautreaux-McDonald Named to SEC’s 2015 Women’s Legends Class

COLUMBIA, S.C. – Former South Carolina golfer Adrienne Gautreaux-McDonald has been named a member of the Southeastern Conference 2015 Class of Women’s Legends, the league announced today.

A letterwinner from 2001-04, Gautreaux-McDonald saw success early in her South Carolina career as a contributor to the program’s only SEC championship team in the spring of 2002. A two-time All-SEC honoree, she garnered a first-team nod after recording the 12th-best season scoring average in program history at 74.44 in 2004. Her off the course efforts were also recognized in 2004, as the Gamecock earned first-team CoSIDA Academic All-America honors and was named an NGCA All-American Scholar. Over the course of her career, Gautreaux-McDonald posted 20 top-20 finishes including eight in the top 10 and four in the top five.

In 2004, Gautreaux-McDonald became the first of two Gamecocks to win the LPGA Foundation Dinah Shore Trophy. One of the most prestigious honors in golf, the Dinah Shore Trophy recognizes female collegiate golfers who excel in both academics (3.2 on a 4.0 scale) and athletics – playing in at least 50 percent of the team’s scheduled events – while maintaining a 78.00 or less scoring average. In addition, nominees must demonstrate outstanding leadership skills and community service.

The class will be honored at the 2015 SEC Women’s Basketball Tournament, March 4-8 in Little Rock, Ark.  Each legend will be honored during half-time of their team’s first game of the tournament, all 14 individuals will also be honored as a group, as well as participate in an autograph session during the tournament.  Complimentary posters of the Legends will be available at the session.

The conference is announcing the legends from its Eastern Division schools today while the Western Division schools will be announced on January 8.  Each legend will then be celebrated individually on each Sunday and Thursday between January 11 and February 26.

Below is the list of the 2015 SEC Women’s Legends representing Eastern Division institutions:

Welcome Back and This Week

I hope everyone had a great Christmas break! I wish everyone a Happy New Year as we start 2015. First. I want to thank everyone for a very successful first semester. In order to be successful, it takes everyone working together. EISD cannot attain its goal of a “World-Class Education” for all students without the staff, students, and parents and other family members working together. I appreciate all the work and dedication provided by all of those involved.

In terms of six weeks, our current school year is halfway over. There are a few more days in the second semester than in the first. While the first semester seemed busy, the second semester always has more events and activities than the first. I look forward to a great second semester.

This Week

Monday – Staff Workday – No classes

Tuesday – Classes resume at regular times; Start of 4th 6 Weeks; High School G & B Basketball at Rice

Thursday – Report Cards Issued; Perfect Attendance/Right Choice – Intermediate; MS Girls Basketball v. Troup; MS Boys Basketball at Troup;

Friday – HS Girls and Boys Basketball v. Frankston

I hope everyone has a great week!
