At the heart of Lynchburg College's athletic facilities is the majestic Shellenberger Field. Named in honor of the founding men's soccer coach, Bill Shellenberger, this beautiful complex is home to the LC men's and women's soccer, men's andwomen's lacrosse, field hockey, and men's and women's track and field teams. The facility features a large, new artificial turf field, a new state-of-the-art eight-lane track, and a spectator capacity of 3,000. Shellenberger Field is a formidable venue for visiting teams, with chair and bleacher seating on one side of the field and residence halls on the other, where student crowds gather to cheer on their Hornets. At one end of the field stands the LC hornet statue; at the other end, the Victory Bell Tower, which gets a lot of use given the strength of LC's athletic programs.

The beautifully maintained field welcomes all who enter the college from Lakeside Drive and is bordered by the LC Alumni House and the Burton Student Center. The gently-slopping hillside next to the field can accommodate a number of fans and bleachers can seat approximately 500.
Home of the Lynchburg baseball team, Fox Field is one of the nicest facilities in the ODAC. Cut out of the natural terrain of Lynchburg College, Fox Field is adjacent to Wake Field House. The baseball stadium can accomodate approximately 1,000 fans.
One of the most versatile facilities on campus, Wake Fieldhouse is the indoor home to the Lynchburg men's and women's track and field teams. In addition to hosting track meets, the fieldhouse can also be utilized for indoor tennis with three courts available. Wake also serves as an indoor practice facility for many of the LC team sports when inclement weather prevents outdoor practices
Across College Lake and adjacent to Faculty Drive are several practice fields used by Hornet varsity teams to hone their various skills.
LC Tennis Courts
Another facility to have gone through a major overhaul, the LC Tennis Courts were resurfaced at the conclusion of the Summer of 1999. The six courts, which are adjacent to Fox Field, have a state-of-the art surface designed to maximize edurance while minimizing strain on the athletes in competition.
