Trump Welcomes Colleges Sports Champions at White House Reception

Posted November 19, 2017

SC won the 2017 Women's NCAA Tournament, but isn't going to the White House.

The four University of Oklahoma teams that won NCAA National Championships during the 2016-17 school year are in Washington, D.C., Friday at the invitation of President Donald Trump.

In May, Washington won its first national championship in women's rowing since 2001 after sweeping all nine of its races - including all three Grand Final races - during the three-day regatta in West Windsor, New Jersey. By last month, a frustrated Staley told the Associated Press she wasn't even sure the Gamecocks would go to the White House even if they did receive an invitation.

Trump previously welcomed the national football champion Clemson Tigers in June.

The study, which spanned a 12-year period, involved 3.4 million Swedish people between the ages of 40-80. Scientists said the companionship was key, along with the physical activity in taking it for a walk.

"We won before those other teams won their championships", Staley said. He began a series of stops on the South Lawn, then went to the State Floor and Rose Garden on the White House grounds. As far as I'm concerned, I'm over the White House thing. "I don't know what else has to happen". The administration has not sent out a list of the teams that will be present at the ceremony - but both the men's and women's basketball teams have said they do not plan to attend. The North Carolina men's basketball team - whose coach, Roy Williams, has been publicly critical of Trump - begged off, citing a scheduling conflict.

Those comments came just a few weeks after President Trump rescinded the Golden State Warriors' invitation to the Whtie Hosue because Steph Curry said he didn't want them going.

Staley's stance changed over the coming months when Trump invited championship teams from other sports to the White House but did not bestow that same honor on SC.
