Chattahoochee Valley Community College (CVCC) Lady Pirates Guard Audrey McElhaney helped the Lady Pirates win the ACCC South Division for a second consecutive season earlier this season. She was elected to the NJCAA Women’s Basketball Top 40 All-Star team and played on July 28 on the campus of Georgia State University in Atlanta, Ga.
She was one of five players selected to the All-Tournament team. She scored 401 points in her freshman season at CVCC and was elected to the NJCAA Region 22 Second-team and ACCC South First-team. She averaged 13.8 points per game and had a 62.5 shooting percentage.
She scored on double digits in 24 games this season and had four 20-point games. She scored a season high 26 points in November against West Georgia Tech. She had three games with double digit rebounds. He totaled 163 rebounds and 43 steals in 2017-2018.
“While recruiting Audrey, we knew she’d be really good in our league. I expected her to be special but I had no idea she would have the impact that she has had in only one season. She has been one of the most essential pieces to the growth of our program in recent years,” said CVCC Women’s Basketball Coach Ron Robinson.
“With her recent selection to the NJCAA WBB All-Star Weekend, All-Star All-Tournament selection and increased recruitment, she has really helped CVCC garner some national attention. Schools that have shown interest in the past week include Troy University, Sam Houston, Seton Hall, Southern Mississippi, Longhorn University, Ole Miss and Delta State to name a few. The great thing about Audrey is that she is just as humble as she is talented. Her work ethic is second to none. It’s almost like she is in denial about how talented she is. Student-Athletes like Audrey are the type of kids that make a program special.”
