In Greensboro, the University of Lynchburg’s Women’s swim team competed at the Old Dominion Athletic Conference, ODAC, Championship meet from Feb. 10th through Feb. 13th. The Lady Hornets finished in third place besting their results from 2020.

The Hornets were led by junior Claire Galloway who earned the lone gold medal in the 100 breaststroke on the women’s side for Lynchburg.

Galloway said, “Being able to win an event has been a great experience and moment in my life and I hope to build off it for next year.”

Lynchburg had 18 members of the team score points individually as it was a whole team effort in Greensboro. The team totals were Washington and Lee at first with 957 points, Randolph-Macon in second with 544 points and Lynchburg rounding out the top three with 526 points.

The Hornets will lose four senior girls who combined for 40 points in the meet.

Spach, a senior, said, “I feel that the girls team will be in a strong spot for next year to improve and ride the momentum that was built over the past couple years.”

The Lady Hornets will look to build off an incredible year while returning six individual All-ODAC performers. 

Spach said, “At the end of the day I believe that this program will continue to ascend and grow into not only a conference power but a national powerhouse.”

The Lynchburg women’s team will finish the year off with a 3-3 dual meet record and a pair of third place finishes at ODAC relays and the TYR Yellow Jacket Invitational.
