Now she is looking forward to winning more championships there in the future.
The highly recruited guard officially signed a National Letter of Intent to play for the Lady Gamecocks at a 6 p.m. ceremony Wednesday at MBHS’s auditorium.
Sessions, who averaged 17.9 points, 5.7 assists and 4.0 steals per game last season in leading the Lady Seahawks to their second consecutive Class AAA state championship, has selected South Carolina over Auburn and Florida State.
Sessions initially narrowed her list down to the final three plus Georgia Tech, Kentucky and North Carolina. She opted to take official visits to Auburn, FSU and finally South Carolina last week, when she knew her heart was still in the Palmetto State, according to Myrtle Beach coach Brian Kiper.
Sessions’ decision was based in part for the opportunity to play for USC coach and women’s basketball icon Dawn Staley. She also is looking forward to being close to home so friends, family and fans can watch her play.
Sessions’ signing on the final day of the early signing period will allow her to focus on making a run at the Lady Seahawks’ third straight state title. Their season gets under way Nov. 29 at Lake City.
