ASHLAND, Va. – Randolph-Macon Women's Basketball senior Kelly Williams (Garysburg, N.C. / Halifax Academy) has been named to D3hoops.com's annual preseason All-American list. Williams was named to the group's All-American Second Team.
Williams returns to the hardwood after suffering an injury last season. Before missing the rest of the year, Williams averaged 19.3 points-per-game and 15.1 rebounds-per-game. As a sophomore, Williams was the ODAC Player of the Year and was named an All-American by three different organizations, including D3hoops.com. She was the ODAC Rookie of the Year as a freshman as well.
Williams will join fellow seniors Charlotte Woods (Richmond, Va. / Trinity) and Michal Ross (Glen Allen, Va. / Glen Allen) on the floor this season.
