Women's Basketball Lands Three On All-Conference

Women's Basketball Lands Three On All-Conference

Forest, Va. -- The Lynchburg Women's Basketball had four members of their program honored on Thursday night at the Tournament Kick-Off Banquet. Head Coach Abby Pyzik Smith was named Coach of the Year, senior Charmaine Hairston earned First Team honors, junior Caroline Naumann got the nod for Second Team and sophomore Molly Shepahrd garnered a spot on the Third Team. Hairston is the only Hornet from this year's All-Conference recipients to have earned the honor before, collecting Third Team All-Conference plaudits after the 2014-15 campaign.

Head Coach Pyzik Smith led the Hornets to a 20-5 regular season record including going a perfect 11-0 at home in Turner Gymnasium. Coach Pyzik Smith surpassed the 100 win threshold for her career in the win over the Cougars of Averett University. This is the fifth season she has guided the program to a winning record and second straight season with at least 20 wins.

Senior guard Charmaine Hairston was a catalyst for the team this season, averaging 12.8 points in 28.8 minutes per game. She led the Hornets in PPG as well as FT%, shooting just above 78% from the charity stripe this season. Along with Head Coach Pyzik Smith, Hairston also reached a milestone in the Dec. 11th game against Averett. The Rocky Mount, Va. native went off for a career-high 34 points to surpass 1,000 points, becoming only the 9th Hornet in Lynchburg Women's Basketball to surpass 1,000 points. She also became the all-time leader in 3PT made (126) on Senior Day against Eastern Mennonite on Feb. 18th.

Earning Second Team All-Conference, junior Caroline Naumann was a force down low for the Hornets this year. She took a beating game in and game out but was able to perform each day to help the Hornets. The Mechanicsville, Va. native started in all 25 games for Lynchburg this season and averaged 12.3 PPG and 7.2 REB in 27.6 minutes/game.

Rounding out the honors for the Hornets was sophomore Molly Shephard. The Charlottesville, Va. native worked hard and earned her first career start on January 21st against Randolph-Macon in which she made an immediate impact, scoring a career-high 31 on 16-21 shooting from the floor. The sophomore forward averaged 11.4 points in 20.4 minutes per game.

The Hornets will take on Randolph College on Friday, Feb. 24th in the Salem Civic Center, with tip-off set for 1:00 p.m. The Lynchburg and Randolph game is the first of four ODAC Quarterfinal games scheduled for Friday.
