LC Sits Atop Commissioners Cup Rankings
Virginia Wesleyan, Lynchburg Split Men's, Women's Cup Totals
SALEM, Va. --- The 2009 fall Old Dominion
Athletic Conference championships have all come to a close and the
race for the Dan Wooldridge Overall Sports Champion Cup, sponsored
by Farm Bureau Insurance, is underway. Lynchburg
College is atop the current rankings for the overall cup and the
Women's Commissioner's Cup, while Virginia Wesleyan College is at
the head for the Men's Commissioner's Cup.
Farm Bureau Insurance is the proud sponsor for the Dan Wooldridge Overall Champions Cup and the Men and Women's Commissioner's Cups. 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, 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 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 it can collect based on its individual sport sponsorship. The total number of points earned is then divided by the total number of possible points to determine the ranking for each institution.
Lynchburg, which has not won the overall sport trophy since 2001-02, currently has 55.5 points out of a possible 61 points for an overall rating of 0.91. The Hornets were crowned conference champions in men's and women's cross country, field hockey and men's soccer this fall.
On the men's side, Virginia Wesleyan has tallied 20 points out of a possible 21 points for an overall total of 0.95. For the women, LC racked up 36.5 points out of a possible 40 for an overall rating of 0.91.
