Colton Hunt ’13 and Derrick Woods-Morrow ’12 eclipse 1,000 points

Colton Hunt ’13
Two Randolph College students recently passed the threshold of 1,000 points on the basketball court, making history for the men’s basketball team.

Colton Hunt ’13, an economics major from Whittier, N.C., scored his 1,000th point during a game against Hampden Sydney on January 25. He is the first male player at the College to meet that goal. The WildCats won that game 61-60.

Derrick Woods-Morrow ’12
One week later, Derrick Woods-Morrow ’12, a studio art major from Greensboro, N.C., crossed the 1,000-point mark while the WildCats took on Eastern Mennonite University and won 64-47.

Hunt and Woods-Morrow join 10 female athletes who have scored 1,000 career points at the College. The last player to hit that mark was Lindsay Cross ’10, who accomplished the feat during her senior season.

Hunt told a sports podcaster that his achievement was just another part of building the men’s basketball program. “It’s a great honor. This is something that we take pride in as a team, in building a tradition that's hopefully going to go on for many years,” he said. “It’s just the beginning right now.”
