The WildCats are back!

Randolph College's fall student-athletes arrived on campus Thursday. The weather cooperated perfectly for them to unload their suitcases, clothes, and dorm essentials in front of Main Hall and move in to the residence halls.

Classes don't start for more than a week, but they are here to get a head start on the fall season, practice their skills, exercise, and bond with their teams.

At the right, Ashley Oswald, a first-year student from Mechanicsville, Virginia, pulls a cart of her belongings up to Main Hall, along with her mother Lisa, her sister Alexa, and her father Eric. Ashley will be playing soccer—take note of the soccer balls and cleats in her basket. Welcome to Randolph College, Ashley!

At left, David Guwani, another first-year playing soccer at Randolph College, is reporting to campus with some of his own furniture in tow. Guwani is from Silver Spring, Maryland.

Here, Jacob Hood, a sophomore from New Market, Maryland, stacks his belongings to move in with the help of Bob Lusczek, his roommate's dad. Hood also is a soccer player.

Although they didn't pose for any pictures, WildCats from the volleyball team and the men's and women's cross country teams moved in Thursday. Welcome back, WildCats, and we look forward to you making us proud in your competitions this fall!
