W&L Lifts All Three ODAC Commissioners Cup for Fifth Straight Season

W&L Lifts All Three ODAC Commissioners Cup for Fifth Straight Season

FOREST, Va. --- The final standings for the ODAC Commissioner's Cups presented by Virginia Farm Bureau Insurance look a little different this season as the rankings for all three competitions include results only thru the winter campaigns. That does not take anything away from the outstanding achievements of the conference's student-athletes and athletic teams, especially those of Washington and Lee University as the Generals claimed all three cup titles.

The top three-programs in the Dan Wooldridge Overall Champions Cup are the same for the fifth straight year and appear in the same order for a fourth consecutive campaign. Randolph-Macon College sits second with the University of Lynchburg ranking third. Roanoke College and Bridgewater College have traded fourth and fifth positions each of the past five years. That back-and-forth trend continues with the Maroons fourth and the Eagles fifth this season.

Virginia Farm Bureau Insurance is the proud sponsor for the Dan Wooldridge Overall Champions Cup and the ODAC Men and Women's Commissioner's Cups. Virginia Farm Bureau and the ODAC continue their partnership in focusing on the strength of the conference's student-athletes and maintaining the NCAA Division III philosophy of the complete student-athlete experience. Aside from supporting the ODAC Commissioners' Cups, Virginia Farm Bureau is the sponsor of the ODAC's sport-by-sport scholar-athlete awards.

As determined by the ODAC Board of Directors, points for the ODAC Commissioner's Cups are based on regular-season standings in team sports and championship team finishes in individual/meet sports. Each institution has a total number of possible points it can collect based on its sport sponsorship. The total number of points earned is then divided by the total number of possible points to determine the rating for each institution.

Washington and Lee has long been the talisman when it comes to winning ODAC Commissioners Cups. The Generals have earned 18 straight and 24 total Wooldridge Overall Champions Cups. Their total in the remaining two cups now stands at 20 each, having won the Women's Commissioner's Cup for 17 straight seasons and the Men's Commissioner's Cup for a fifth successive year, which also matches the number of seasons W&L has hoisted all three trophies.

In an interesting coincidence, Washington and Lee's point ratings each worked out to be 0.913. W&L collected 141.5 of a possible 155.0 points towards the Dan Wooldridge Champions Cup standings powered by 78.5 points of 86.0 possible in the Women's Commissioners Cup table and 63.0 of 69.0 points in the Men's Commissioners Cup. The Generals garnered first place points in five sports including men's and women's cross country, men's and women's swimming, and men's indoor track & field. W&L shared first place points in women's basketball with Emory & Henry College.

Randolph-Macon and Lynchburg finished second and third in all three cups. The Yellow Jackets earned a 0.861 rating (93.0 of 108.0) in the overall cup as well as 0.879 (54.5 of 62.0) and 0.837 (38.5 of 46.0) marks in the women's and men's charts, respectively. The Hornets posted a 0.750 overall rating (109.5 of 146.0) with a 0.783 (47.0 of 60.0) men's mark and a 0.727 (62.5 of 86.0) women's showing.

Hampden-Sydney College earned the top points in men's soccer powering the Tigers 0.435 rating (30.0 of 69.0) in the men's table.
