Forest, Va. -- Lynchburg College athletics is proud to announce that the Hornets are in second place in all three of the Old Dominion Athletic Conference Commissioner's Cups standings after the fall seasons.
Lynchburg earned 59 of the 68 possible points in the fall season for a rating of 0.868 in the Dan Wooldridge Overall Champions Cup, which combines results for both men's and women's sports. The Hornets are also second in both the men's and women's commissioner's cup race.
Points for the ODAC Commissioner's Cups are based on regular-season standings in team sports and championship team finishes in individual/meet sports. Each institution has a total number of possible points it can collect based on its sport sponsorship. The total number of points earned is then divided by the total number of possible points to determine the rating for each institution.
The Hornets' men's teams missed out on just two possible points in the fall campaign as men's soccer topped both the regular-season and tournament lists, and men's cross country finished third in the conference meet.
Women's soccer, field hockey, and women's cross country all earned all but one of their possible points, while volleyball earned eight of 12 points by virtue of a conference tournament victory.
Washington and Lee leads all three cups' standings after the fall with a 0.913 rating, while Roanoke (.728), Randolph-Macon (.721), and Bridgewater (.687) comprise the top five.
In the 2016-17 year, Lynchburg placed third in all three cups. The Hornets have placed in the top five of each cup ever since their inception in 1992-93 but last won the overall cup in 2001-02 despite not taking either the men's or women's cup. Lynchburg has won the men's cup five times.
