Baltimore, Md. -- The Lynchburg College men's lacrosse team got an early Christmas gift this week, a top-10 ranking in the Inside Lacrosse preseason Division III rankings.

The Hornets are No. 10 in the preseason poll, and Lynchburg's 2018 schedule features nine opponents in the top 25.

Three other Old Dominion Athletic Conference schools -- Roanoke (18), Hampden-Sydney (19), and Washington and Lee (22) -- appeared in the rankings.

Lynchburg will start the season with a top-10 matchup Saturday, Feb. 10 at two-time defending national champion and top-ranked Salisbury. The Hornets next three contests will also be against top 15 programs -- No. 8 Cabrini, No. 15 Franklin & Marshall, and No. 3 York (Pa.). Fifth-ranked RIT and No. 17 Stevenson also appear on the Hornets' non-conference slate.

The Lynchburg program enters 2018 in search of its seventh-straight NCAA tournament appearance. The Hornets won a pair of NCAA games in 2017 and advanced to the Elite 8.
