ODU SECOND IN ALL-SPORTS COMPETITION

Old Dominion University finished second among Virginia university-level athletic programs, winning 58 percent of its contests this year in the 27th annual Virginia Sports Information Director's Association Division I All-Sport championship competition.

The University of Virginia won 63 percent of its games in 2004-05 to win top honors.

ODU's winning teams were led by:

- Sailor Anna Tunnicliffe won her third-straight collegiate singlehanded national championship.
- ODU won CAA titles in men's and women's basketball. The men's hoops squad won a school-record 28 games.
- Men's soccer was 13-6-2, reached the CAA championship game and was a 12th seed in the NCAA tournament.
- Wrestling was 12-5, while men's swimming and diving recorded its second best record in school history at 10-1.

Besides winning the ICSA North American singlehanded sailing national championship, ODU placed fourth at the women's and sixth at the co-ed dinghy
nationals.

The survey began in 1978-79 and includes winning percentages of only those sports with NCAA sponsored championships. Old Dominion won seven of the first eight titles, then again in 1993-94, 1995-96 and 1998-99. Virginia won five straight years from 1988-89 to 1992-93, then again in 1996-97 and 1997-98.
