Two Generals Earn Weekly ODAC Laurels

FOREST, Va. – The Old Dominion Athletic Conference announced its Players of the Week for the week ending Oct. 10 on Monday afternoon and Washington and Lee had two athletes selected.

Senior Tim Gavrich (Avon, Conn./Westminster) was tabbed the ODAC Golfer of the Week, while first-year M.A. Boles (Houston, Texas/St. John's) was selected as the ODAC Volleyball Player of the Week.

Gavrich earned his honor after earning medalist honors at the Virginia Intercollegiate Tournament held at the Stoney Creek Golf Club at the Wintergreen Resort over the weekend.  Gavrich carded rounds of 70 on Saturday and 70 on Sunday to finish the event with a four-under par score of 140.  His score was four strokes better than the second-place competitor and helped lead the Generals to a third place finish out of nine teams.

For the year, Gavrich has played a total of six rounds and he leads the team with a 73.8 scoring average.

Boles received her player of the week citation after helping lead the Generals to a 3-2 week.  She averaged 11.0 kills, 2.2 service aces and 8.6 digs per match as W&L fell to sixth-ranked Christopher Newport (3-0) and 10th-ranked Wisconsin-Oshkosh (3-2) and defeated Sweet Briar (3-0), Haverford (3-1) and Virginia Wesleyan (3-0).

Boles totaled 11 kills and five service aces against Sweet Briar and closed out the weekend with 14 kills, 13 digs and three blocks against Wisconsin-Oshkosh, and 15 kills and four digs against Virginia Wesleyan.

On the season, Boles leads the team with 240 kills and 35 service aces.  She also has 209 digs and 24 blocks.

The W&L golf team returns to action on Oct. 25-26 as it competes in the Guilford/Tom O'Briant Invitational held at the Cardinal Golf and Country Club in Greensboro, N.C. The volleyball team hits the court again on Wednesday as it travels to Roanoke College for a 6:30 pm contest.
