Generals Sweep ODAC Honors
For the sixth consecutive year Washington and Lee’s varsity athletic teams won the Dan Wooldridge Overall Sports Champion Cup (sponsored by Farm Bureau Insurance®), emblematic of the top finishes in all conference sports. The Generals won six sports championships during the 2008-09 athletic season, and also claimed the Women’s Commissioner’s Cup for the sixth successive time. But there’s more. Two of W&L’s student-athletes won the conference’s scholar-athlete awards. Harry St. John (lacrosse) won the Harry G. “Doc” Jopson Scholar-Athlete Award as the league’s top male student-athlete, while Anne van Devender won the Marjorie Berkley Scholar-Athlete Award.
