W&L Claims the 2011 ODAC Overall Sports Champion Cup

SALEM, Va. – The Old Dominion Athletic Conference has announced that Washington and Lee University has claimed the 2011 Dan Wooldridge Overall Sports Champion Cup for the eighth-straight year.

The cup, sponsored by Farm Bureau Insurance, is presented to the school that exhibits the best all-around athletic program in the conference.  Points for the Commissioner's Cups are based on regular season standings in team sports and championship team finishes in individual sports.  Each institution has a total number of possible points they can collect based on their individual sport sponsorship.  The total number of points earned is then divided by the total number of possible points in order to come up with a ranking for each institution.

The Generals accumulated 144.0 points of a possible 188.0 for a 0.766 rating in claiming the trophy for the 15th time in the 17 years that it has been awarded.  Lynchburg College collected 130.0 points of 184.0 for a 0.707 rating to finish in second place.

Washington and Lee also claimed the women’s sport trophy for the eighth year in a row with a 0.848 rating, having tallied 84.0 of a possible 99.0 points.  Roanoke College finished second in the race for the women’s cup with a 0.750 rating.

The Generals finished second overall in the race for the men’s sport trophy, totaling a 0.674 rating.  Lynchburg College claimed the men’s cup with a 0.732 rating.

Washington and Lee has compiled a 188-107-4 (.636) overall record during the 2010-11 school year.  The Generals took home ODAC Championships in women’s cross country, football, women’s swimming, women’s lacrosse, men’s tennis and women’s tennis.
