FOREST, Va. – Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) cross country coaches selected Guilford College's men's team 11th in the league's annual preseason poll Wednesday. The Quakers' men had 17 points in the 11-team ratings.
Washington and Lee University claimed the top spot in the poll, followed by Bridgewater College and Lynchburg College, who rounded out the top-three teams.
The Quakers welcome back three letter winners from last year's team, which finished 10th in the 2016 ODAC Championships. Junior Caleb Amstutz is Guilford's top veteran after posting the team's best time in all six meets a year ago. His eight-kilometer mark of 29:44 placed 67th at the league meet. Senior Caleb Anderson and sophomore Colin Dossell also return for the Quakers.
Guilford opens its schedule September 1 at the ODAC Preview meet at Virginia Wesleyan University. The Marlins will host the league championships October 28.
