Louisville, Ky. -- Following another successful year in the classroom, Lynchburg College's softball team again earned a nod on the Easton/National Fastpitch Coaches Association's Division III All-Academic Team list.

Lynchburg finished the 2016-17 school year 35th among Division III programs with a team grade point average of 3.478, tops among the three Old Dominion Athletic Conference programs listed.

All the while, the Hornets put together another top-notch season on the diamond. Lynchburg finished the season 29-15 and reached the consolation semifinals of the ODAC tournament.

The Hornets wrapped up the fall season with a promising play date at Liberty University in September and will open their 2018 season on Sunday, Feb. 11 with a home doubleheader against Methodist.

The NFCA and Easton publish a list annually to recognize softball teams across seven collegiate and prep divisions for their accomplishments in the academic arena. A full list of all-academic teams can be found here.
