FOREST, Va. – In polling of the league's coaches conducted by the conference office, the Bridgewater Eagles men's lacrosse team was tabbed to finish 10th during its inaugural season in a release by the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) office.

Bridgewater earned 11 total points to sit eight tallies behind ninth place Shenandoah.

The Eagles welcome 34 newcomers to the roster this season as head coach Mic Grant's squad takes to the game field to play its inaugural contest in just 15 days. 

Lynchburg College received seven first place votes as part of 78 overall points to earn the #1 position atop the 2013 ODAC Men's Lacrosse Preseason Poll.  Washington and Lee University picked up a pair of top nods and 71 tallies to place second, just one point clear of third-standing Roanoke College, which garnered the remaining first place vote. Hampden-Sydney and Randolph-Macon round out the top five.

Bridgewater opens the 2013 season on February 23 at home when it plays host to Transylvania. Start time against the Pioneers is set for 1 p.m.
