Carole was inducted into the Athletic Hall of Fame in 2001. Her citation is copied below:
Before matriculating to Washington College in 1987, Carole Reece Albright was an outstanding athlete at Pocomoke (MD) High School, where she participated in both field hockey and lacrosse. She was selected in field hockey to the All Bayside All-Conference Team.
At Washington College, this high school star was one of the early pioneers of the field hockey and lacrosse programs as women’s varsity athletics struggled for recognition. During her time on campus, both programs became recognized as strong competitors and many of the participants on these teams were recognized for post-season honors.
Carole earned eight varsity letters, four in each sport, while playing for the Maroon and Black. It was in field hockey, however, that she had her greater success. She was an outstanding right wing in field hockey and played center/attack wing in lacrosse.
Over the four-year span of her competition, she emerged as the all-time scorer in the field hockey program and was a major contributor to the team’s success. She was selected to the U.S. Field Hockey Association Tournament in each of her four years. She also was named a second team South Region All-American in 1988 and took part in the USFHA national tournament in Irvine, California. She was selected as co-captain of the field hockey team in 1990 and as co-captain of the lacrosse team in 1988.
Carole was equally successful off the field. A Dean’s List student majoring in political science, she was a resident assistant and served on the Faculty-Athletic Committee, the Athletic Advisory Council, and the Campus Judiciary Committee.
Carole earned her law degree at Wake Forest University Law School, receiving the Academic and Character Award at graduation. In addition to her work as a family law attorney, Carole teaches at the Guilford Technical Community College, where she won the institution’s Excellence in Teaching Award.
Washington College is honored and proud to induct Carole Reece Albright into the Washington College Athletic Hall of Fame on this 6th day of October, 2001.
