Hampden-Sydney Lacrosse earned seven first-place votes to top the ODAC Preseason Poll as the Tigers look to earn their sixth ODAC Championship in repeat fashion. Hampden-Sydney will get the regular season underway this Sunday with a noon contest at the defending national champions and #1 ranked Salisbury University.
Hampden-Sydney is coming off a record-setting 2017 season that saw the Tigers win the ODAC Tournament and advance to the Third Round of the NCAA Tournament. H-SC set new program single-season records in wins (16), points (486), goals (307), and assists (179). Additionally, numerous individual records and top 10 single-season marks were set.
