Sparks, Md. -- Checking in at No. 17 on the Nike/US Lacrosse men's Division III preseason top 20 poll, University of Lynchburg's men's lacrosse program continued to garner national attention ahead of the 2019 season.

The Hornets will test their mettle against seven other teams in the preseason top 20 during the 2019 campaign, including preseason No. 1 and defending national champion Wesleyan (Conn.).
