Williamsburg, Va. - For the second consecutive year, William and Mary and Old Dominion have partnered with title sponsor, Optima Health, for the Optima Health Challenge.
The Optima Health Challenge is a running score of all the direct competitions between the two schools, with a champion being named at the end of the 2012-13 athletic season and receiving the Optima Health Trophy.
The scoring system awards 10 points for the overall winner in every regular season ODU-W&M athletic competition (for instance, in football, the winner of the Nov. 12th matchup received 10 points; in baseball, the winner of the regular season three-game series will receive 10 points). Each of the four games in men's and women's basketball will be worth five points, giving both sports a total value of 10 points available.
A total of 120 points (10 points for Football, 10 points for MBB, 10 points for WBB, and 10 points per nine Olympic Sports) will be awarded for 2012-13. The winning school will be the first to tally 65 points.
