Sports Hall of Fame
The Lynchburg College Sports Hall of Fame was established in 1978 to recognize and honor outstanding athletes and teams for their athletic performance, leadership, and team contributions while students at Lynchburg College. In 1975 (men's athletics) and in 1981 (women's athletics), Lynchburg College began competition in Division III of NCAA.
