The University of Lynchburg Women’s Lacrosse team is midway through the 2022 season. The ladies currently sit with a three and five record having faced an extremely challenging schedule so far this season.
The team has faced multiple ranked teams including Denison, Franklin & Marshall, and York. These three teams all sit in the top 20 polls across numerous sites.
Senior Micah Slacum said, “Facing this schedule has helped understand where our strengths are as a team and where our weaknesses are. I personally feel that we are an extremely athletic team and that is because we take great pride in putting in effort down in Wake.”
The Hornets have been able to benefit from the new additional lifting racks down in Wake Field House to enhance their athletic capabilities.
Junior Lindsey Barrington said, “The best part about being on the team is the support from not only the students but the athletic department as well.”
The athletic department has provided unbelievable facilities for these student athletes including a great locker room as well as playing field.
Barrington added, “The best part of the experience of playing at University of Lynchburg is that we have unbelievable support from the student body. Seeing the students pack the track is one of the best parts about Lynchburg and why I think it is the best atmosphere in D3 lacrosse.”
The women’s team will look to see the track packed as they take on Christopher Newport University (CNU) on March 30 at 5:00 p.m.
After CNU the women’s team will head into the thick of ODAC play the rest of the month as they have several tough matchups such as Washington and Lee, Randolph-Macon, as well as a rematch with Roanoke, on April 6, who ousted the Hornets on March 24.
The Hornets will look to get hot at the right time with hopes of continuing success in the ODAC tournament at the end of the month.
