Sinclair was also on the staff for two NCAA Tournament appearances and coached 11 All-ODAC First Team performers.

Sinclair played his collegiate lacrosse for

the Hornets of Lynchburg, where he helped capture the school’s first conference title in 2003. He was a four-year letter winner for the Hornets, as he scored 15 goals and dished out 11 assists in his career. He earned his bachelor’s degree from LC in the spring of 2003 in sociology.

He has also worked at multiple lacrosse camps

over the years, including stops at the Top Star and Gait Cup Lacrosse Camps in Gettysburg, PA, the Dixie 150 Lacrosse Camp in Gaffney, SC, the UVA Graves Mountain Lacrosse Camp in Charlottesville, VA, and the Notre Dame Lacrosse Camp in South Bend, IN.

11-12 SEASON Preview

This off-season has seen a lot of changes in the Randolph College men’s lacrosse program, mainly the departure of the program’s inaugural head

coach in Scott Ketcham. Ketcham led the program through the first three years of its existence, but first-year head coach Andy Sinclair was hired as the new head mentor as the WildCats push forward.

Sinclair is no stranger to the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC), as he was a four-year player for cross town rival Lynchburg College. His experi-

ence in the conference as both a player and an assistant coach will be vital to the improvement of the WildCat men’s lacrosse team.

“It’s been a great start to the year so far,” said Sinclair. “Things haven’t been that much different from my experience as an assistant and as a head

coach at the high school level. There’s no trick to it really, it’s about working hard, gelling together as a group which will get us to where we want to be.”

The hard work has been evident early on, and the results are also apparent. In the team’s preseason scrimmage, Randolph held its own with York

College of Pennsylvania, falling by only one goal on a shot at the buzzer. The notion that the hard work is turning into results has not gone unnoticed by the players.

“Coach Sinclair is making sure that we’re working hard no matter what,” said sophomore middie John Grundy (Gainesville, VA/Battlefield). “We’re

running every day after practice, getting our conditioning in and building that mental toughness for the fourth quarter that we’re going to need to succeed.”

While Ketcham was one loss that the WildCats had in the off-season, two more are also apparent when looking at the roster. Last year’s leading goal

scorer TJ Story is gone, as is All-ODAC second team defender Gage Anderson. While those losses will certainly sting early on, the players think it’s time for other to shine. One of those players who should answer the call will be junior middie Jon O’Hara (Yorktown, VA/Grafton).

O’Hara returns as a junior after scoring seven goals and dishing out six assists as a sophomore. His dodging skills and ability to create for himself and

others will be vital to the WildCats attack this year. “Offensively, I think a guy like Jon O’Hara will really come into his own this year and start scoring a lot of goals,” said junior pole Ryan Blackwell (Ashburn, VA/Briar Woods).

Continuing to focus on the attack, one has to look at fellow junior Stephen Allman (Goodview, VA/Roanoke Catholic) as the top returning player for

Randolph. Allman had a team-best 23 points as a sophomore, and also dished out 12 assists on the season. “He’s (Allman) someone to look out for this season for sure,” said Sinclair. Sophomore Bobby Crosby (Bethel, CT/Bethel) is back for his second season with Randolph after notching 11 goals as a first-year player. He is also going to play behind the net more, and will look to facilitate a lot of what Randolph is doing.

Junior John Croney (Wilmington, DE/Brandywine) has had a nice camp, and should get a lot of time in the attack, while another face to look for is

sophomore Colton Wood (Chula Vista, CA/Otay Ranch). Wood is extremely athletic and has a howitzer for a shot, but struggled with injuries last year. He will play attack and midfield for the WildCats, something Coach Sinclair is excited about.

“He’s someone that can really shoot it, and he should have an opportunity to get looks as both a middie and attack this season,” said Sinclair.

First-year Clay Orshoski (Elkwood, VA/Eastern View) will get some opportunities to score this season for Randolph, while Josh Borgelt (Greenville, SC/Mouldin) has had a nice camp and will look to have a breakout campaign as a sophomore.

Moving to the defensive side of the ball, you have to start with senior goalkeeper Kevin McCracken (Annandale, VA/Annandale). Though not the most athletic of keepers, he is a fantastic ball stopper that

has been between the pipes for every game since the program’s start in 2008. In front of him, the WildCats should have a strong set of defenders, led by Blackwell and sophomore Ryan Pearson (Asbury, NJ/North Hunderdon).

“I expect a lot out of our defense this season,” said Sinclair. “We have a lot of athleticism on D at the current time and these guys are very intelligent. We’ve taught them an entirely new system than what

they’re used to and they’ve picked it up very nicely.”

Blackwell and Pearson each played all 13 games a season ago, and both have beefed up to handle the rigors of a full ODAC slate. Blackwell was second on the team in caused turnovers with 14, while

Pearson was right behind with 11. Also back this year after starting nine games a season ago is Justin Baker (New Orleans, LA/Jesuit). Baker was out during the fall, and will need time to adjust to the new system.

Another face to look out for defensively is first-year Ryan Mahon (Monroe, NY/Peddie School). The players and coaching staff have been impressed with his athleticism, and expect him to play well. “At the

long stick midfield spot, I really expect Ryan to step up for us,” said Blackwell. “He brings quickness and has really quick feet.”

Senior Greg Herrick (Mt. Airy, MD/Linganore) played in 12 games last season, and is a veteran player that will play a lot defensively, as is sophomore Matt Bray (Woodstock, VA/Claremont). Bray played

mostly during man-down situations last season, but started to get the feel of the college game late last season.

First-year Nick Valentine (Richmond, VA/Benedictine) will also have opportunities throughout the season on defense, as will defensive midfielder Jake Shrank (Winchester, VA/Centreville).

Looking at defensive midfielders for Randolph, two names stick out in Grundy and fellow sophomore Anthony Mangano (North Garden, VA/Monticello). Grundy is a tough, gritty midfielder who should also

get some runs with the top midfield line on offense, while Mangano was a force on the clear last year and is not someone that will be pushed around. Mangano also has a nice shot, and should get some looks on offense as well.

Midfielder Keenan Hickman (Woodbridge, VA/Freedom) is very athletic, and should help getting the ball forward during clears and in also defensively. At the faceoff x, Randolph returns its two main bat-

tlers in Grundy and Zach Speelman (Culpeper, VA/Culpeper).

Grundy won 40.7 percent of his face-offs as a first-year player, but had great games against some of his stiffest competition, including winning more than half of his face-offs against Roanoke College.

Speelman should spell Grundy here and there, and has shown some ability early in his career. Speelman will also serve as the back-up goalkeeper this season.

In the end, the WildCats understand that it is still a work in progress but that doesn’t mean that the goal isn’t still to win. “We’re looking for wins, and wins quickly,” said Blackwell. “These next couples of

weeks are going to be definitive for our program; we have a lot of opportunities coming up.”

Randolph has a schedule that features 15 games, the most in program history. Randolph will play out of conference games against Christopher Newport (Feb. 19), Piedmont College (Feb. 22), Ferrum

College (Feb. 25), Greensboro College (Mar. 3), Mitchell College (Mar. 10) and Albright College (Mar. 13) before opening conference play Saturday, March 17 at Guilford. Playing in ODAC, Sinclair knows the challenge of the ODAC. The WildCats were picked to finish 8th in the ODAC this season.

“It can be extremely challenging but it can be just as rewarding with success,” said Sinclair. “We’ve got to really fight hard to work as hard as we can, mentally and physically, to get an opportunity to cap-

ture our first conference win.”

The home slate in conference features battles with Virginia Wesleyan College (Mar. 28), Washington & Lee University (Mar. 31) and preseason ODAC favorite and 11th-ranked Lynchburg College (April 4).

The team also understands that winning in the difficult ODAC is not an easy task.

“It’s tough, I mean, you’re playing against some of the best teams in the nation,” said Grundy. “This year Roanoke is preseason No. 2, Lynchburg is preseason No. 11; Hampden-Sydney and Washington &

Lee, and they’re all up there too. You really have to have that mental toughness to really not give up against those teams.”

ODAC CONFERENCE History of the ODAC

Celebrating its 36th year of operations, the Old Dominion Athletic Conference

(ODAC) is one of the nation's largest Division III conferences. The 14-member ODAC, including one associate member, stands as the second-largest multi-sport NCAA Division III conference in the country.

The league was formed on May 18, 1975 as the Virginia College Conference

and began operations in September of 1976. (The name chane to Old Dominion Athletic Conference became effective January 1, 1976). Charter members were eight colleges located in the state of Virginia: Bridgewater College, Eastern Mennonite College, Emory & Henry College, Hampden-Sydney College, Lynchburg College, Randolph-Macon College, Roanoke College and Washington and Lee University.

From its initial year of operation through the 1981-82 academic year, the ODAC sponsored competition in 10 men's varsity sports,

including football, soccer, and cross country in the fall; basketball, wrestling, and indoor track and field in the winter; and baseball, golf, tennis, and outdoor track and field in the spring. Women's sports were added prior to the 1982-83 school year. Today, the ODAC has grown to sponsor championships in 22 sports (10 men and 12 women) and houses nine full-time coeducational institutions with three single-gender schools making up the current 13 full-time members.

The conference expanded in the late 1980s, early 1990s and most recently in 1999. Virginia Wesleyan became the 13th member of

the conference in 1988 and began full-scale competition in the league in the 1989-90 academic year. Guilford College, voted into the conference in the spring of 1990, began competing for conference championships in the 1991-92 season. The Catholic University of America (DC) was accepted for associate membership in football on January 12, 1999, and just recently Shenandoah University accepted an invitation to join the ODAC ful-time in 2012-13.

Over the past 17 years the conference and the City of Salem, Va., have gained national attention through hosting five NCAA Division

III championships in football, men's basketball, Men’s Lacrosse, baseball, Men’s Lacrosse and volleyball. The growing list of titles passed out in Salem began in the fall of 1993 with the DIII Football Championship. Through the 2009-10 academic year, the conference and city have hosted 49 NCAA Division III Championships since the '93 Stagg Bowl. This year, the two will serve as hosts to the DIII football, men's basketball and Men’s Lacrosse championships. Governance:

The Conference is governed by a 13-member presidential body consisting of all of the full-time members' CEOs. Dr. Billy Greer of

Virginia Wesleyan is the chair of the ODAC Presidents' Council.

CITY OF LYNCHBURG Lynchburg is a scenic city located near the eastern foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Central Virginia. The area has an extensive history beginning with its founding on the James River in the 1760's by John Lynch as "Lynch's Ferry." Today the city has an urban population of over 96,000, including the suburbs of Madison Heights, Timberlake, and Forest. Lynchburg's economy is based on the many high-tech manufacturing companies located here including cellular communications, nuclear energy, and machinery. This manufacturing and research orientation represents a shift from the mill-based economy of the past, which included foundries, shoes, and textiles. Education is well-represented with five area private colleges and a public community college. Health care includes two hospitals, one of which, Lynchburg General, has been recently renovated into a state-of-the-art facility for the next century. Lynchburg is sometimes referred to as "A City Unto Itself", in part due to geographic and cultural isolation, but mostly in reference to the city's historical avoidance of State and Federal entanglements. The phrase was the title of a history book by columnist Darrell Laurant. Mayor- Joan f. Foster At Large Representative- Hudson “H” Cary, III & John Randolph Nelson Ward I Representative- Michael A. Gillette Ward II Representative/Vice Mayor- Ceasor T. Johnson Ward III Representative- Jeff S. Helgeson Ward IV Representative- Edgar James Turner Perrow, Jr. Over 40 sites in Lynchburg are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Lynchburg is the home of Central Virginia Community College, Liberty University, Lynchburg College, Randolph College, and Virginia University of Lynchburg. The Lynchburg MSA also includes Sweet Briar College. Lynchburg boasts examples of Italian Renaissance, Federal, Georgian, Neo-Classical, NeoGothic, Romanesque, Jeffersonian, Queen Anne, Second Empire, Colonial, and Art Deco styles. A number of sites and neighborhoods are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Primary roadways include U.S. Route 29, U.S. Route 501, U.S. Route 221, running north-south, and U.S. Highway 460, running east-west. While not served by an interstate, much of Route 29 has been upgraded to interstate standards and significant improvements have been made to Highway 460. Amtrak's Crescent and Northeast Regional trains connect Lynchburg with the cities of New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, Charlotte, Atlanta, Birmingham and New Orleans. Lynchburg became the new southern terminus for the Northeast Regional in October 2009. Amtrak's passenger terminal in Lynchburg is located in the track level ground floor of Kemper Street Station. Lynchburg Regional Airport provides service by US Airways Express to Charlotte. In recent months air travel has increased with 7,400 passengers flying in and out of the airport in April 2009—an increase of 97%. With this jump in passengers, flights have been added and the possibility of more carriers and destinations has become more likely. Attractions include Lynchburg Hillcats, Peaks of Otter, Crabtree Falls, Poplar Forest, and Phase 2 Dining & Entertainment.
