Roanoke College secured the third seed outright, but the second quarterfinal host required tiebreakers to determine. Lynchburg College and Bridgewater College tied for fourth with 4-4 league records. The Hornets' 10-5 victory over the Eagles during the regular season fulfilled the ODAC's tiebreaker in its first step, pitting a matchup between #4 LC and #5 BC in the quarterfinals in Lynchburg.
The remaining tournament postition also came down to tiebreakers. Shenandoah University's win over Guilford College on Saturday not only put the two programs into a tie for sixth, but also gave SU the ammunition to earn the sixth seed via head-to-head tiebreakers over GC. Shenandoah will travel to Roanoke in the quarterfinals.
