The 2013 season was the tenth for Bruce Reid on the LC sidelines as the head mentor, and the program has taken a huge step forward under his direction in that span. LC had its fifth-straight winning season in 2013. In 2012, the Hornets finished 11-7 overall while hosting their second consecutive ODAC semifinal match-up. The Hornets were 12-5 during the spring of 2011, including an 8-1 record in conference play.
LC made it to the ODAC Championship in 2010, the first trip since 2001, and also posted 14 wins, the second most single-season total in team history. Lynchburg advanced into the ODAC Tournament Semifinals for the first time since 2001 in the 2007 season, and LC had a four-game winning streak in a rebuilding 2008 campaign. The 2006 Hornets finished 7-6 on the year, while the 2005 unit had their best record since 2000 with a 10-4 mark. The Hornets finished the 2003 season 7-7 and were 6-10 in 2004.
Reid, the director of athletic facilities at the college, assisted the LC women’s lacrosse program in the spring of 2001. He has more than 15 years experience at various levels as a coach in the sport. He served as the head men’s coach at Wittenberg University (Ohio) from 1993-2000, earning the North Coast Athletic Conference’s Coach of the Year Award in 1999. He was the men’s head coach at conference-rival Virginia Wesleyan College and at Widener University (PA), and was an assistant at the Episcopal Academy (PA).
Reid earned his bachelor’s degree in recreation programming at the University of Maryland in 1982, and his master’s degree in recreation administration from Temple University in 1983.
