600: Mindful Yellow Jackets Reach Milestone For LaHaye

Kelly Williams poured in 35 points, while Jayla Wade scored in double figures and lone senior Teal Reynolds played tremendous defense as Randolph-Macon overcomes foul trouble at the point guard position, playing a strong final three minutes on both ends of the floor to pull away from Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) leader Lynchburg 71-59 Saturday afternoon to win their fourth straight conference game and pull into a three-way tie for first place.

But, more importantly to every player on the team, was getting a win that gave their head coach, Carroll LaHaye, her 600th career victory, just the 59th women's basketball coach in NCAA history to earn that feat.

Williams scored 19 points in the first half as the Yellow Jackets (6-2 ODAC, 13-3) built a 38-28 halftime lead. But the Hornets raced out of the gate in the third period on a 10-0 run to tie the game. The teams traded the lead several times, but, as the fourth period wore on, the Hornets didn't find ways to the basket, while the Yellow Jackets did. And on this special day, what has been their kryptonite, free throw shooting, was much improved, helping Randolph-Macon end the game on a 19-8 run.

We congratulate Coach LaHaye on this milestone accomplishment and will have complete coverage, as the only Richmond area reporter at the game, coming this week only in The Herald Progress!
