BATTLE FOR THE SILVER MACE

Beginning this year there is a new tradition between ODU and William and Mary; two staples of the Colonial Athletic Association. During the athletic season of 2011-12 this historic rivalry will come to a pinnacle in the "Optima Health Challenge." Sponsored by Hampton Roads based Optima Health, the trophy will be presented annually to the school which accumulates the most points in head-to-head competitions in all sports. Along with the all sports challenge, the annual football contest will be the "Battle for the Silver Mace", with the winner presented a replica of the Norfolk Mace. The Mace is currently being held in the Chrysler Museum of Art, located in Downtown Norfolk. The Norfolk Mace was presented in the Norfolk Common Council by Royal Lt. Governor Robert Dinwiddle in 1754 to acknowledge that Norfolk was one of the most loyal provinces to King William.

Points Format:
During the year, the CAA foes will face off 15 times, with each event being worth 10 points. The Monarchs and Tribe will compete head-to-head in football, men's and women's basketball, men's and women's swimming & diving, men's and women's tennis, field hockey, baseball, and women's lacrosse. With the potential of meeting also in CAA tournaments. The winner will be the first to reach 80 total points.

Current score is: ODU (45), W&M (30)
