Coach Holbrook: Gamecocks will return to CWS

By PETE IACOBELLI

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - South Carolina coach Chad Holbrook says he's working for a return to the College World Series after the Gamecocks' disappointing NCAA tournament performance this month.

South Carolina ended a run of 13 straight times advancing out of a regional it hosted, a streak that dated back to 1976. Holbrook says he's still not gotten past the defeat more than a week later.

But Holbrook has already begun planning for 2015 and leading a very different club than he had this season.

Six Gamecock juniors who played in the NCAA opening game were drafted last week by major league baseball and Holbrook said Tuesday that most are poised to start their pro careers.
