On Monday, April. 15, 2019, the 19th ranked University of Lynchburg softball team competed in their final home game matches of the regular season. On this senior day, the team competed in two back-to-back games against Eastern Mennonite University, another Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) team.  The seniors celebrated during this match from the Lady Hornet side were pitcher Taylor Belknap, infielder Taylor Mabry, infielder MacKenzie Chitwood, and catcher Brittany Coffey. The team defeated Eastern Mennonite University in both games by a score of 8 to 3 in the first game and a score of 7 to 2 in the second game.  The seniors really come out with intensity in these games and played a big part of their team win. Chitwood got four hits, scoring two home runs, and Mabry scored three times on the day.
