Achievements & Hall of Fame


Congratulations to the Fury Athletic Hall of Fame Class of 2021 Inductees!

Alex Tchangoue Wensikoua ’05 was a catalyst and made key contributions to the most dominant era in FCDS girls’ basketball history. In her two years at FCDS, Alex demonstrated athletic excellence, achieving two PACIS conference championships and NCISAA runner-up finishes. She was a two-time all-conference player, conference player of the year, and All-State, boasting a 53-13 all-time record. Beyond her time at FCDS, Alex was a four-year starter at Wake Forest University and played professionally in France for 12 years. 

Eric Nadeau ’06, who passed away in 2015, demonstrated athletic excellence in his time wrestling for FCDS, achieving three wrestling state championships, National Prep All-American honors, and a scholarship to wrestle at James Madison University. He left an incredible legacy at FCDS. 

Coach Bob Jennings built a culture of successful swim teams in his seven years as head coach of the boys’ and girls’ varsity swim teams, more than doubling each team’s size. He coached athletes who were unable to swim into swimmers who scored key points in championship meets. Under Bob’s coaching, the boy’s team almost completely rewrote the school record board, and multiple swimmers won individual and relay state championships. Bob’s coaching achievements include five-time PACIS Conference Coach of the Year, five consecutive boys’ conference championships (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019), four girls’ conference championships (2013, 2017, 2018, 2019), the 2014-2015 Jim Tobias Award for Excellence in Coaching, and leading multiple FCDS swimmers to compete at the collegiate level.

The 1993 and 1994 FCDS Varsity Volleyball teams demonstrated athletic excellence on the court. Beyond a 45-0 record for the two-year span, the team accumulated many accolades, including two state championships, winning the prestigious Davidson College Mikasa’s Best of the Best Tournament, being named team of the decade by the Clemmons Courier, and even a feature in Volleyball Monthly Magazine. The teams included Class of 1994 - Shea Green and Natalie Hobson; Class of 1995 - Jennifer Hutz, Kate Moody, Robin Bolstad, Courtney Jellar, Kelly Newcomb, Lindsay Bloodworth, Heather LeVan; Class of 1996 - Leslie MacKeen, Emily Sloan; managers, Susan Boyer, Robbie Southard, Massoud Tehrani, and David Roach, under Coach Penny Marshall.
