The University of Lynchburg Women’s Lacrosse team is looking to make a statement this upcoming season. The team has their sights set further than the first round of the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) Tournament where they ended their 2019 season with a loss against conference opponent Shenandoah University by a score of 11 to 12.
The Hornets have six fourth-year players on their squad returning for this season. They are looking to use this maturity and strength to build upon the results of last season, ending their season with a 9-8 record overall.
After losing to Randolph-Macon College in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) semifinals in May 2018, the women’s lacrosse team is out for revenge. Overall, the Lady Hornets finished the season at a respectable nine wins, eight losses (with six wins, two losses in the conference).
