The Randolph College athletic department each week showcases a question and answer feature with our WildCat of the Week. The 16th student-athlete selected this year is women's basketball player Abigail Bullins.
Abigail won the award after scoring 23 points at Shenandoah University. She needed all 23 to get to 1,000 and broke the plateau in the game against the Hornets. She is the 11th member of the club in the program's history.
You became the 11th women's basketball player in Randolph history to score 1,000 points, how does this accomplishment reflect you and the program?
Scoring a thousand points is a huge reflection on our program as well as my teammates and coaches. All of the coaches I have had during my time of being an athlete here at Randolph have always pushed me to do my best so I could be successful. My teammates have also contributed to the milestone just by having confidence in me and having my back on and off the court. On any team your teammates are your biggest supporters and it's a nice feeling to know they believe in you.
What is your favorite thing about Randolph College?
My favorite thing about Randolph College is how close everyone is. The support system is unbelievable and we're all just one huge family.
How has being a student-athlete affected you?
Being a student-athlete has affected me in many ways. Coming into college is pretty stressful and coming in playing more than one sport was very time consuming. I played soccer and went straight into basketball right after the last game. You definitely learn how to manage your time wisely so you are able to keep up with your classes. You also make friendships that will last a lifetime.
