Generals Enter Tournament As The Second Seed
LEXINGTON, Va. The second-seeded Washington and Lee
(9-4, 7-1) women's lacrosse team will host seventh-seeded Sweet Briar
(7-7, 2-6) in an ODAC Tournament Quarterfinal match at 4:00 pm on Wednesday
afternoon at the Liberty Hall Fields.
When these two teams met earlier this season in Lexington, Va., the Generals
came away with a 23-5 victory.
In the other quarterfinal games, top-seeded Randolph-Macon (9-4, 7-1)
will host eighth-seeded Hollins (1-10, 1-7), third-seeded Roanoke (10-5,
6-2) will entertain sixth-seeded Bridgewater (7-7, 4-4) and fourth-seeded
Lynchburg (10-5, 5-3) will host fifth-seeded Virginia Wesleyan (9-7, 4-4).
The semifinals and final will take place on Saturday and Sunday at the
home field of the highest remaining seed.
W&L captured last year's ODAC Championship with a 6-2 victory over
Lynchburg in the finals.
The winner of the ODAC Tournament will earn the league's automatic bid
to the NCAA Division III Tournament.
