W&L WOMEN'S CROSS COUNTRY IS FIRST IN ODAC PRESEASON POLL

LEXINGTON, Va. -- After winning the ODAC Championship in 2000, the Washington and Lee women's cross country team is the preseason favorite to win it all again.

The Generals received nine points and three first-place votes in the ODAC Preseason Women's Cross Country Poll released Wednesday morning. Junior Burke Duncan, who qualified for the NCAA Division III Championships last season, returns to lead W&L.

Lynchburg was a close second to W&L with 10 points and one first place vote. Roanoke, Eastern Mennonite, Bridgewater, Virginia Wesleyan and Emory & Henry rounded out the poll.

The Generals open their season on September 8 with a meet at Virginia Wesleyan.
