Current Conference Standings

The Generals stand at 3-2 in conference duals, and will look to battle to finish in the top half of the Centennial Conference when they host Johns Hopkins and Stevens Institute of Technology on Saturday January 4th. Stevens will be a tough test for the Generals, as they are currently ranked #6 in the nation and are 16-0 on the season. The winner of the Hopkins-W&L match will likely secure for themselves the #4 spot in the Conference. It would be the best Conference Dual finish for W&L since 2007, when the Generals finished 5-2 and were part of a 3-way tie for 2nd place.
