LC Field Hockey Releases 2013 Schedule
LYNCHBURG, VA – With spring ball underway, the Lynchburg College field hockey team released its 2013 schedule on Thursday, with several difficult games on tap for the Hornets.
LC opens the season with 2012 national semi-finalist Depauw University on August 30. The neutral site game, held at Wittenberg University, begins at 7 p.m. Two games later, the Hornets face another NCAA tournament team in Christopher Newport University. LC hosts the Captains September 6 at 7 p.m.
One of the biggest match-ups of the season comes October 2 on Shellenberger Field. Lynchburg takes on another 2012 national semi-finalist in the University of Mary Washington at 6 p.m. This game has even more anticipation, as it will be a rematch of the national quarterfinal game between the two teams last year, that the Eagles won by a single goal.
Along with the non-conference slate, the Hornets will look to continue their Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) success, with eight league games during the fall. LC will be trying to win its eighth-straight ODAC title this fall.
