The ODAC, Where Champions Compete

 

SWEET BRIAR, Va. --- Let there be no mistake about it, the Old Dominion Athletic Conference is its own champion's league.  Four of the 13 ODAC women's soccer teams are nationally ranked and newcomer Shenandoah University won the 2011 USA South crown.  Sweet Briar slips into the mix this week as it begins league play on Wednesday, September 12. 

 

For its first conference outing of the season, the Vixen side travels to Emory, Va. where it faces the Emory & Henry College Wasps. The 5:30 p.m. game is the first 2012 ODAC contest for both teams and both squads enter the mid-week match looking to end a two-game skid. 

 

SBC returns to campus on Saturday, September 15th to host nationally ranked Lynchburg College.  The 11th ranked Hornets are riding a four game winning streak. Prior to visiting the Vixens at Babcock Field, Lynchburg squares off with fellow ODAC member Virginia Wesleyan College.  The Marlins currently sit in the 16th spot at the national level.


QUOTABLE

 
Kevin Fabulich, Vixen Soccer head coach: This team has been together less than a month and I am happy with progress.  We can see that the details are starting to come through.  Now it is just a matter of getting our consistency down.  The ODAC is a big test for us.  Our preparation has still been very strong and our next step is to put it together for 90 minutes.

 

Nina Kappel, sophomore defender: I am excited to start conference play.  We will get into our Wednesday, Saturday game schedule and I love it.  I love to play soccer.  It has been fun figuring out how we play together as a team.
