Three W&L Women's Hoopsters Earn All-ODAC Honors

FOREST, Va. – Three members of the Washington and Lee women's basketball team were honored on the All-Old Dominion Athletic Conference teams that were announced at the annual tournament banquet on Wednesday evening at the Salem Civic Center.

Senior forward Becca Bolton (Pittsboro, N.C./Chatham Central) was named First Team All-ODAC and was chosen as the ODAC/Farm Bureau Insurance Scholar-Athlete of the Year for the second straight year. Senior guard Meg Ingram (Greensboro, N.C./Ragsdale) was named to the second team and junior forward Katy Wilson (Chattanooga, Tenn/Baylor) earned third team laurels.

Bolton was named to the first team for the second time in her career, having also received the honor as a sophomore.  A second team selection last season, she has started all 25 games for the Generals this year, leading the team in both scoring (14.2 ppg) and rebounding (9.2 rpg).  She ranks second in the league in rebounding and is fourth in the conference with a 50.4 (143-284) shooting percentage.  She has posted 11 double-doubles and is also averaging 2.8 assists and 1.9 steals per game.

Bolton enters the ODAC tournament ranked fourth all-time at W&L in career points (1,396), rebounds (884) and assists (268).

Leading the league with an average of 2.4 made three-pointers a game, Ingram is also registering 13.5 points, 4.2 assists, 2.6 rebounds and 1.2 steals per game in 25 starts this season. She was a Second Team All-ODAC pick as a first-year and sophomore, and was a first team choice last season.  She ranks second all-time at W&L with 1,515 career points, and has made a school-record 254 three-pointers.  Her 447 assists are second all-time and her 181 steals are third.

Wilson received third team honors after averaging 11.7 points and 8.8 rebounds per game, while shooting 49.0 (125-255) percent from the floor in starting all 25 contests.  Her 4.5 offensive rebounds per game lead the league and her seven  double-doubles are the second most on the team.

Guilford sophomore forward Gabby Oglesby was named the ODAC Player of the Year, while Virginia Wesleyan's Stephany Dunmyer was tabbed as the Coach of the Year.  VWC guard Sarah Seipp was also selected as the league's Rookie of the Year.

W&L is currently holding a 13-12 overall record and is 11-9 in conference play after defeating six of its last seven opponents. The Blue and White travel to Salem, Va., to play the Yellow Jackets of Randolph-Macon on Thursday in the ODAC Tournament quarterfinals at 3:00 pm.
