It is the second year in a row that Major has been named National Coach of the Year. The Gamecocks won the 2015 National Championship on April 18 in Waco, Texas, upsetting No. 1 Georgia to win the title.

“I am very humbled to receive this award from my coaching peers, but as with any individual award, it’s one that I am honored to share with a special group of people,” Major said. “This past year was an interesting one for us as it was filled with many great moments but also some challenging ones. I was proud to see our team react in such a positive way each time a challenge presented itself, and I think the character of this year’s team more than anything is why we were able to win the national championship. Along with our riders, I share this award with my assistant coaches Ruth Sorrel and Hillary Dobbs who did a tremendous job coaching our girls and preparing them to compete at a high level. I’m also proud to share this with our school president Dr. Pastides and athletics director Ray Tanner, and all of our support staff at the University of South Carolina that do so much work behind the scenes support our program.”
