Each week, Randolph Athletics showcases a question and answer the WildCat of the Week. This week in an outside hitter from the volleyball team Autumn Troxell.
Troxell helped the WildCats go 2-1 last week. Against Emory and Henry, she recorded her 1,000th kill and became the second player in program history to achieve such a feat. In Randolph's 3-2 win over Eastern Mennonite, she recorded season-highs of 23 kills and 27 digs with her digs also a career-high.
You became just the second player in program history to reach 1,000 kills. What does reaching that milestone mean to you?
Being recognized for this distinguished honor means more than words can describe. I am beyond thankful for everyone who have helped to set me up for my success. I couldn't have accomplished this without each and every one of them.
What has been your favorite moment being on the team over the last few years?
I have countless memories but my all-time favorite would have to be fighting back and beating Lynchburg on their senior night my freshman year (This was the first time RC had beaten LC in volleyball since 1997).
What will you miss the most?
I will miss getting to compete in the sport I love alongside some of my closest friends.
What plans do you have after graduation?
Following graduation I plan on attending graduate school to earn a Master's Degree in Accounting and then become a CPA.
