Four Hornets Listed in ODAC/StellarOne Winter Sportsmanship Teams
FOREST, VA – The Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) released the 2013 ODAC/StellarOne Sportsmanship Teams for the winter sports and four Hornets find themselves among those honored.
Senior Michael Glover, junior Caleigh Patterson, sophomore Jared Bloomquist, and sophomore Aleshia Washington were named for their respective sports.
Glover made his biggest impact as a senior captain for the men's basketball team. His hustle and effort on the court was rarely matched, as Glover dove for loose balls and took charges on a regular basis.
Patterson provided a lot of leadership for the young Hornet women's basketball team, assuming a role as captain. She connected on 45.9% of her shots, while scoring in 26 of the team's 28 games.
Bloomquist had another strong winter for the men's indoor track team. The high jumper finished second at ODACs, building on the success he had as a freshman in the event.
Washington had a strong season for the women's indoor track team. She finished second in the 60 meter dash in a career-best 7.97 seconds. She also set a personal record in the triple jump at ODACs, showing off her versatility.
