Three Selected To Field Hockey All-ODAC Squads

Austyn Faries

FOREST, Va. – Three Yellow Jackets were honored with All-ODAC awards, the conference announced Tuesday afternoon. Juniors Maria Teresa Ambrogi-Torres (Richmond, Va. / Trinity Episcopal School) and Claire Magill (Moseley, Va. / Trinity Episcopal School) were honored with All-ODAC First Team selections, while fellow junior Austyn Faries (Richmond, Va. / Monacan) landed on the Second Team. 

Ambrogi-Torres earns her third All-ODAC honor in as many years for her efforts on the field this season. She led the team with 18 goals and 42 points as well as six assists. Her goal total places Ambrogi-Torres tied for second in the conference for total goals this season and her points finish slots her third. Ambrogi-Torres jumps to the First Team after earning an All-ODAC Second Team selection last season and an All-ODAC Third Team pick as a freshman.

Magill joins Ambrogi-Torres on the First Team, one of just two defenders to earn First Team accolades across the entire conference. Magill was an All-ODAC Third Team performer last season. She helped anchor a defense that allowed under two goals a game, which put R-MC in the top portion of the conference. Her three defensive saves led the team as well. Besides her tenacious work on the back line, Magill helped anchor the penalty corner unit, serving as one of the main strikers for the team this season. Magill earned plenty of work offensively as well, grabbing five goals this season from her spot on the back line.

The Yellow Jackets' honors were rounded out by Faries on the Second Team. Faries was crucial through the midfield as well as the offensive third. She scored scored five goals and four assists this season, earning her a total of 14 points. Faries worked in the midfield to keep opposing squads at bay in R-MC's defensive third – using her stick to control possession in R-MC's favor, including with terrific moves down into the offensive third. Faries helped pace an offense that tied for second in the conference for goals scored this season with 63. The team tied Shenandoah for the honor. The team more than doubled their goal total from last season.

Randolph-Macon recently wrapped up a 10-9 season, including going 5-3 in the conference. R-MC earned the right to host a ODAC Quarterfinal match on campus and grabbed signature wins against Roanoke, Bridgewater and Virginia Wesleyan during the regular season.
