Emory, Va. - The number 13 ranked Generals of Washington and Lee (14-5, 9-0 ODAC) took out the Wasps (9-6, 5-4 ODAC), 6-3, Saturday afternoon.  The Generals, who are also ranked 5th in the region, remained undefeated in the ODAC with the victory.  Despite the loss, the Wasps are still holding onto a spot in the ODAC Tournament.
