Bridgewater’s program appears to be on the rise. The Generals finished 15-12 overall last season and reached the ODAC tournament semifinals before losing to Washington and Lee. Bridgewater finished 10-6 in the regular season, the most wins since the 2004-05 season. Don Burgess, the Generals’ coach, is starting his second season.
