Felicia Hall Allen has earned the Woman of Impact Award from the Black Coaches Association.


Hall, founder of Felicia Hall Allen and Associates in Charlotte, was cited for her dedication to enhancing women’s basketball on and off the court. A former basketball player at the University of Iowa, Allen was presented the award during the BCA’s “Women of Color in Our Game: A Celebration” luncheon at the Women’s Basketball Coaches Convention in Nashville, Tenn.


The coaches association recognize Allen’s significant contributions to grow the game over the last two decades. The luncheon honored black women coaches whose commitment to women’s basketball spurred the sport’s growth.


Dr. Richard R. Rolle Jr., an oral and facial surgeon with a practice in Cornelius, has been appointed oral surgeon for UNC Charlotte’s athletics programs.


Rolle, who will be responsible for services to more than 400 student athletes, played football at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, Ind. He earned his doctor of dental surgery degree from Meharry Medical College School of Dentistry, in Nashville, Tenn., and completed oral and maxillofacial surgery training from Harvard’s Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston. He completed residency from Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., and clinical surgery research at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.


• Air Force Airman 1st Class Silas T. Davis graduated from basic military training at Joint Base San Antonio-Lackland, San Antonio, Texas.


Davis completed an intensive, eight-week program that included training in military discipline and studies, Air Force core values, physical fitness, and basic warfare principles and skills.
Airmen who complete basic training earn four credits toward an associate in applied science degree through the Community College of the Air Force.


Davis is the son of Silas T. Davis of Huntersville and Beth H. Wallace of Charlotte and a 2011 graduate of South Mecklenburg High School.


• Crossroads Charter point guard Kyle Riddley has signed a national letter of intent to attend Davidson County Community College.


Riddley, a 6-2 senior, chose Davidson County over Burlington County (N.J.) Georgia Highlands, St Andrews in Lumberton, N.C., and Francis Marion (S.C.).  He received offers from Division II programs but chose the junior college route in pursuit of a Division I offer.


Last season, Riddley averaged 21.0 points, 5.2 assists and 2.6 steals per game for Crossroads Charter, which went 20-9.
