WAY TO GO, Randolph-Macon.

One more to go for a national championship banner.  You can do it!  

(I see no reason to change the profile picture of Yellow Jackets celebrating.)

Congatulations on a great season for RMC!

Second is disappointing since it means you lost the final game, but it is still one helluvan achievement!  They just ran into a team that either played out of their minds today, or was severely under-ranked!

Note that Millikin's 3 all-tournament players were two juniors and a FRESHMAN; the CCIW MOP this year was a FRESHMAN from Wheaton.  I think the CCIW ladies may finally be catching up with the national status of the men.

How do RMC and the rest of the ODAC look for coming years?  Was this a one-time thing for a magical RMC team, or will the ODAC also begin catching up with the national stature of the men?

My congratulations as well to the Yellow Jackets of Randolph-Macon for carrying the ODAC banner all the way to the championship game.  You did us proud.

The support of the ODAC -- fans of women's basketball, coaches and players from other teams, of course R-MC students, faculty, staff, alumni, parents, and friends -- was unbelievable this weekend and the whole postseason.  From RMC SID, thanks for helping to make it an incredible ride!

Also, many thanks and congrats to Virginia Wesleyan and the NCAA for an incredible event.  It was very well-organized and enjoyable for all, I think.

And to the Yellow Jackets -- as with all of our teams at R-MC, I couldn't ask to be associated with a finer group of student-athletes and coaches.  Special thanks to all of you.

Congrats to RMC!  No one else in the country can say they made it to the championship game.  The ODAC was well represented.  The ODAC needs to make it a habit to get teams into the Elite Eight in my opinion.

RMC fans did a great job supporting their team this weekend.

And special thanks to John Irby who did a fantastic job taking photos for the school and our site.  All the women's photos on this site from this weekend are his.

The RMC Community is lucky to have him.

Is anyone else surprised to see the Lynchburg coach resign?

I know my ABCs and 123s!

emufan,
Not surprised at all. I always liked Richie, but from the teams marginal success or lack of during his tenure (most especially this past season) and with his antics during games (I could list more reasons, but I'll stop here), I had a feeling that he would have been fired if he didn't resign.
