WATCH: South Carolina HC Dawn Staley and Gamecocks WBB staff enjoy at Disney World for victory parade

South Carolina head coach Dawn Staley and her staff took their victory celebrations to Disney World, following the Gamecocks’ championship win over the Iowa Hawkeyes.

The victory parade featured Staley and her assistants riding through Disney, adorned in Gamecocks championship gear and iconic Mickey Mouse ears, spreading joy and excitement.


Amid the festivities, it was noticeable that no players joined Staley on the celebratory trip, suggesting that only the coaching staff participated in the Disney World adventure.

“Caitlin Clark is a superstar,” Staley said. “We’re creating more eyeballs on our sport, and we need to thank her for that. I’m all for the greater good of our game. If she’s a big part of it, we need to find the next superstar that would take our game to the next level.”

While Clark had her moments throughout the 2023–24 season, Staley made history with the Gamecocks, winning the NCAA Championship. Beyoncé herself sent a heartfelt note and gifts to congratulate Staley following South Carolina’s national championship win.

“To Coach Staley and the entire South Carolina Gamecocks, me and my family watched your games and cheered you on through the entire season. I am so proud of you. All my love,” the pop sensation wrote.

With a spotless record of 38-0 last season, Staley has strengthened her status as a legend in women’s college basketball. She has won accolades such as the AP Coach of the Year and boasts an extraordinary overall record of 109-3 in three seasons.
