FOREST, Va. — The Old Dominion Athletic Conference released its 2013-14 All-Academic Team on Wednesday and Washington and Lee once again led the league in number of athletes honored.
W&L totaled 308 (26 more than last year and 42 more than 2011-12) of the conference-record 1,554 total All-Academic Team members named from the 17 member institutions. Next on the list was Bridgewater with 143 and Lynchburg with 139 honorees.
Eligibility for the ODAC All-Academic Team is open to any student-athlete that competes in a conference-sponsored sport, regardless of academic class. He or she must achieve at least a 3.25 grade-point average for the year to be considered for an ODAC All-Academic Award.
Among the Generals’ 307 honorees were 43 First Team All-ODAC selections from throughout the 2013-14 year. The Blue and White compiled a 180-144-6 (.555) overall record during that span.
The Generals took home ODAC Championships in six sports (women’s swimming, women’s lacrosse, men’s tennis, women’s tennis, volleyball and riding), and had six athletes garner the conference’s scholar-athlete of the year awards in their sport. W&L also claimed the ODAC’s Dan Wooldridge Overall Champions Cup for the 12th-straight year and the 18th time in the last 20 years.
