Shellenberger Classic Opens 2016 Hornet Women's Soccer Schedule

LYNCHBURG, VA – The Lynchburg College women's soccer team will open the 2016 season by hosting the four-team Shellenberger Classic on September 3-4.

The Hornets finished the 2015 campaign 19-2-2 and ranked #12 in NCAA Division III. LC will face Johns Hopkins University (ranked #21 last fall) Saturday, September 3 at 1 p.m. to open the season. Roanoke College and Sewanee (TN) are the other two schools competing in the Classic.  

Lynchburg travels west on route 460 the next weekend to take part in the Roanoke College Kickoff Tournament. LC squares off with traditional national powerhouse Emory University (GA) in the first contest of the weekend.

Gettysburg College and Christopher Newport University dot the 2016 slate, and both teams finished the 2015 ranked regionally – as did Sewanee.

Old Dominion Athletic Conference (ODAC) play opens for Lynchburg on Saturday, September 24 against Randolph-Macon College at home. The Hornets have won the last six ODAC titles and have advanced into the NCAA Tournament for nine-straight seasons.
