[ATLANTIC-10: Women] For the fifth straight year, Dayton has been chosen as the Atlantic-10 women's preseason favorite in a vote conducted by the league’s 13 head coaches, sharing the top spot on points with La Salle and getting the nod on the tiebreaker, first-place votes.

The Flyers, who will seek a record ninth A-10 Championship title and fourth in the last five years, return eight starters, including 2012 All-Conference selections Juliana Libertin and Ashley Campbell.

Defending A-10 champion La Salle has not lost a regular-season conference match in two seasons under two-time A-10 Coach of the Year Paul Royal. La Salle made its second consecutive NCAA appearance in 2012 after a thrilling overtime victory over VCU in the A-10 Championship final.

With the exception of goalie Gabrielle Pakhtigian, the Explorers championship team remains largely intact with 2012 Defensive Player of the Year Courtney Niemiec and Renee Washington back.

Atlantic-10 Preseason Poll:
1. Dayton (14-4-2; 7-1-1)
2. La Salle (17-5-1; 8-0-1)
3. VCU (12-5-5; 6-2-1)
4. Richmond (8-9-1; 4-4-1)
5. Massachusetts (9-10-1; 4-4-1)
6. George Mason (7-11-1; 3-6-1/CAA)
7. Saint Joseph's (9-7-4; 4-2-3)
8. Saint Louis (5-9-4; 3-4-2)
9. Fordham (8-11; 4-5)
10. Rhode Island (11-8-1; 4-5)
11. George Washington (5-12-1; 1-8)
12. Duquesne (6-11-2; 2-6-1)
