WVTF public radio features story about Randolph

Public radio station WVTF recently aired a story about the journey that took two Randolph College athletics teams to the Old Dominion Athletic Conference championship games in their sports.

The men’s soccer team won the championship in a game against Lynchburg College last fall. In February, the men’s basketball team went to the ODAC final for the second year in a row, holding on in a competitive battle and losing by only four points.

The WVTF story includes interviews with Bryan Waggoner, head men’s soccer coach, Clay Nunley, head men’s basketball coach, and Randolph College President John E. Klein. Soccer captain Jacob Hood ’14 and basketball player Colton Hunt ’13 also talked about their experiences competing in a competitive athletic conference while keeping up with demanding academic work.

The story can be read on the WVTF Web site. Be sure to listen to the audio available at the bottom of the page, too.
