Colby Francis Named Second-Team All-ODAC and ODAC Athlete of the Week

FOREST, VA – It has been a big week for Lynchburg College freshman Colby Francis. Already competing in his first Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Tournament Championship this week in Cape Charles, VA, Francis received two major awards from the conference office.

Francis earned second-team All-ODAC honors, announced at the annual awards banquet Monday evening. Heading into the three-day ODAC championship, he led LC with a 76.8 average over 17 rounds, shooting a low round of 69 for the season. His average ranks 13th in the league.

Francis also was named the conference's golfer of the week. He finished third last week at the Glenn Heath Shipbuilders Memorial hosted by the Newport News Apprentice School. He shot a 7-over par 149 (74-75) over two days to help LC place second, missing the team title by just one stroke.

Francis and the Hornets sit in fifth place at the ODAC Championship, which concludes today.
