FOREST, Va. --- Washington and Lee University, winner of league-best 13 volleyball titles, enter the 2013 ODAC Volleyball Tournament as the top seed.  The Generals and second-seeded Randolph-Macon College tied in the regular season standings, but W&L's early season victory over the Yellow Jackets secured its top spot.

There was a three-way tie for third place in the league standings, which was determined by head-to-head results amongst the tied teams. Lynchburg College will be the third seed in the tournament, with Virginia Wesleyan College playing out of the fourth slot and Roanoke College occupying the fifth position.  The Maroons will travel to Virginia Beach for their quarterfinal contest on Wednesday evening.

Emory & Henry College staked a claim to the sixth seed and will make a trek to Lynchburg for its tournament opener. There was also a tie for seventh place, which was again decided by head-to-head results. Bridgewater College will play out of the seventh position and will face Randolph-Macon in quarterfinal action. Shenandoah University is the final seed in the conference's eight-team postseason field and will match up with Washington and Lee on Wednesday.

ODAC tournament action begins Wednesday, November 6, with four quarterfinal matchups on the campuses of the four highest seeds. The event continues on Saturday, November 9, with semifinal contests in the morning followed by the conference championship match in the afternoon at the highest remaining seed following the quarterfinals.
