FOREST, Va. -- For the first time since 1986, Randolph has earned multiple All-ODAC picks in volleyball and has placed a student-athlete on the conference's first team for the first time since then, as well.
With the release, senior Jordan Templin becomes the first WildCat since Mary Flippen 28 years ago to be named to the All-ODAC first team. She is joined by classmates Lexi Harrington and Kerry McMichael, who were both named to the third team.
The trio become the first Randolph teammates since Flippen and Tricia Moore in 1986 to be named to the league's list in the same year.
Templin concludes her career as the most accomplished outside hitter in program history, setting program records for career kills, single-season kills and single-match kills.
A member of the All-ODAC second team last year, the Ferrum, Va., native ranked second in the ODAC in kills, fourth in hitting percentage and ninth in digs, leading all outside hitters in that category.
Templin was named the ODAC's Player of the Week twice this season, and was the Sports Imports/AVCA Division III National Player of the Week for the week of Oct. 13-19, making her just the third player in ODAC history to earn that award.
Harrington, the team's senior libero, broke the program's all-time record for career digs this season, after already setting the record for single-match digs.
The Clemmons, N.C., native finished sixth in the league in digs this year.
McMichael had a career year as a setter, using three matches with at least 50 assists on her way to 991 on the year, which is a program record and led the ODAC.
The Westminster, S.C., native is Randolph's career leader in assists, as well.
"I am very pleased with our success this season," interim head coach Kara Matthews said. "We were fortunate to have such strong leadership at all three positions and that was a big part of our success."
