Lynchburg, Va. -- University of Lynchburg athletics and head softball coach Dawn Simmons are excited to announce the Hornets' 2020 game schedule.

Lynchburg's schedule features 12 contests with teams that qualified for the 2019 NCAA Division III championship, ensuring the Hornets will be battle tested come postseason time as the program chases its third-straight NCAA berth.

The Hornets will start that quest Saturday, Feb. 15 on Moon Field with a doubleheader against William Peace starting at noon. Other non-conference opponents set to visit Lynchburg's home field include Methodist and Christopher Newport.

Lynchburg will again face challenging opponents at two tournaments in late February and early March, heading to the Research Triangle region of North Carolina for the Grand Slam Triangle Classic and to Salisbury, Md., for the Salisbury Invitational.

Old Dominion Athletic Conference play begins Wednesday, March 18 at crosstown rival Randolph, and the home conference schedule is set to start Sunday, March 22 when Emory & Henry comes to town.

The Hornets will also play host to Roanoke, Bridgewater, Ferrum and Shenandoah this coming year in ODAC play.

The conference tournament, held at its annual home at the James I. Moyer Sports Complex in Salem, will take place April 24-26.

Lynchburg enjoyed one of the most successful seasons in program history in 2019, posting a 37-15 record and advancing past the regional round of the Division III tournament for the second time in program history. The Hornets defeated two-time defending national champion Virginia Wesleyan for the region title and played host in the Super Regional round.
