FREDERICKSBURG, Va. – Randolph-Macon recent graduate Stephanie Yeager (Fairfax, Va. / Robinson Secondary) and junior Morgan Fuqua (Richmond, VA / Mills Godwin) were honored for their doubles play this season, while junior Landon Aud (Fishersville, Va. / Wilson Memorial) was honored for play on the singles flight.

Yeager and Fuqua finished the season 14-2, all from the No. 1 flight. The duo earned wins against tough ODAC foes Roanoke, Randolph and Lynchburg.

For Fuqua, the recognition marked the first All-ODAC honor of her career and this is the first All-State recognition for her as well.

In her sophomore year, she and Aud won All-ODAC Second Team recognition for No. 3 Doubles. Last season, she was selected to the All-ODAC First Team at No. 2 Doubles. She also earned an VaSID All-State Honor on the Second Team last season.
Aud finished her season 11-1 in singles, with eight wins coming at the No. 4 Flight, which was where she earned the All-ODAC First Team nod. Eight wins were also in conference play.
