Manheim, Pa. -- University of Lynchburg senior Nikki Simpao (Stafford, Va.) and Hornets head field hockey coach Enza Steele represented the program at last week's National Field Hockey Coaches Association/Victory Sports Tours Division III Senior Game.

Simpao paired with other Old Dominion Athletic Conference seniors and players from the Capital Athletic Conference, Southern Athletic Association, Centennial Conference, and North Coast Athletic Conference, while Steele served on the team's coaching staff.

Simpao, the ODAC's player of the year, scored on a penalty stroke late in the day's second contest.

Their team went 1-1 on the day in the three-team round-robin event at Spooky Nook Sports Complex. The senior game is held in conjunction each year with the NCAA Division III championships.

Simpao, Steele and the Hornets finished 16-6 in 2018 and won the program's 19th ODAC title, advancing to the second round of the NCAA Division III tournament.
