Lynchburg finishes third in ODAC Commissioner's Cups

Lynchburg women's soccer players hoist the ODAC championship trophy

Forest, Va. -- For the second year in a row, University of Lynchburg's athletic programs scored a new all-time high rating in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference's Commissioner's Cup, which the ODAC office unveiled Tuesday.

Lynchburg finished third in both the men's and women's cups, also leading to a third-place result for the Lakeside Drive school in the Dan Wooldridge Overall Champions Cup, but the Hornets tallied an overall average of .775 of a possible 1.0, their highest ever.

The commissioners cups are calculated based on regular-season standings in team sports and championship team finishes in individual and meet sports. Those finishes are rated across each institution's sport sponsorship to come up with a decimal rating to determine the finish.

Lynchburg finished just behind Washington and Lee and Randolph-Macon in both standings, the Hornets' fourth-straight top-three finish.

In 2018-19, Lynchburg women's sports were bolstered by conference championships by indoor and outdoor track & field and field hockey.

Women's soccer and women's tennis earned second-place finishes, also boosting the Hornets' average.

Lynchburg's women's sports earned 99 of a possible 122 points for a rating of .8115, just off its highest ever.

On the men's side, second-place regular-season finishes from men's cross country, lacrosse and soccer set the pace.

The men's sports collected 77 of 105 possible points for a .733 rating, their best ever.

Lynchburg has won the overall commissioner's cup twice in the award's 26-year history and the men's cup five times.

The Hornets will look for the addition of men's and women's swimming and women's golf to bolster their scores, starting in 2019-20.
