COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - A former University of South Carolina soccer player has been named to the Canadian Women's Olympic Soccer Team.

Sabrina D'Angelo was a goalkeeper for the Gamecocks from 2011-2014.

D'Angelo is one of two goalkeepers for the Canadians, who open play in the group stage of the Rio Women's Olympic Soccer Tournament against Australia on Aug. 3 in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

A two-time NSCAA First-Team All-American, D'Angelo played in 83 games for South Carolina. She ranks second in program history in shutouts (29) and goals against average (0.76), and her 81 starts are the most for a Gamecock goalkeeper. D'Angelo was drafted 21st overall by the NWSL's Western New York Flash in 2015 after leading the Gamecocks to the NCAA Tournament in three of her four seasons at South Carolina.
