HARROGATE, Tenn. â€”Â Argos graduate Amberly Oâ€™Dell recently rewrote the Lincoln Memorial University womenâ€™s basketball record book as she became the programâ€™s all-time leader in 3-pointers.
Oâ€™Dell, a 1997 graduate of Argos High School and senior at LMU, hit four triples in the Railsplittersâ€™ 79-75 loss at Catawba on Dec. 3 to surpass her schoolâ€™s previous career record with a total of 203.
â€śIâ€™m very blessed to have broken this record with such a great team and under the Coach (Roger) Hodge era,â€ť said Oâ€™Dell. â€śIâ€™m so thankful for all the support my family and Coach Hodge have given me.â€ť
