W&L Tops ODAC 2012 Preseason Coaches' Poll

Guilford (6-11, 5-4) welcomes back all five of its all-league standouts, the most of any program in the ODAC. From the second team, midfielder Summer Frazier (40 G, 11 A, 55 DC) and defender Katie Oliver (3 G, 6 A, 60 GB, 28 DC, 25 CT) lead the way. They're joined by a trio from the honorable mention team in attacker and leading scoring E'leyna Garcia (45 G, 19 A, 39 DC), midfielder Sarah Bradburd (20 G, 24 GB, 16 CT) and goalkeeper Liza Mettler (15.32 GAA, .387 SV%), who led the ODAC with 159 saves.

Bridgewater (6-10, 3-6), Hollins (4-12, 1-8) and Randolph (1-14, 0-9) each have one all-conference player back for 2012. The Eagles feature honorable mention attacker Taylor Chamberlain (44 G, 10 A), who tied for the team lead with 54 points. Hollins also welcomes back an honorable mention attacker in Erica Bruce (31 G, 18 A, 22 GB), who led HU in points (49). The WildCats have their top goal-scorer and point-getter back in the fold in midfielder Ashley Edwards (26 G, 4 A, 40 GB, 29 DC, 30 CT).

Sweet Briar (5-10-1, 2-7) is under new leadership in 2012 with Eboni Preston taking over the head coaching reins. With both all-conference honorees having graduated, she'll be looking to last season's leading scorer, midfielder Sam Schwartz (45 G, 4 A, 20 GB), to help lead the charge.
