  • South Carolina's Lekote out of eligibility

    T&FN got word today that Otukile Lekote, NCAA 800 champ in both '01 and '02, will not be eligible to compete for the Gamecocks in '04.

    According to South Carolina head coach Curtis Frye, it was discovered that Lekote, 25, had competed in a meet in Botswana after the age of 21, thus costing him one year of collegiate eligibility. Lekote had been considered a junior for the 2003 season.

    Frye mentioned that an appeal was possible, but not likely.

      Not that it matters. He came in older and won the NCAAs as a frosh, but has since been supplanted by younger Americans and Brennan.

          From the chat:

          Freehawk (Atlanta): Also, will Otekule Lekote have a big season this fall and spring? He once seemed unbeatable, but had a slump. Thanks

          Coach Frye: Otukile is an open athlete who trains with us now. He is looking very sharp in practice and we expect him to have an outstanding year as an open athlete.

          Also, a number of the athletes have stated this already on other boards.

                As far as I know Lashinda is doing well, she is supposed to be re-entering SC this spring. However, she has been completed her fall training.
