Danville, Va. -- The Lynchburg College softball team has postponed Tuesday's scheduled doubleheader at Averett due to heavy rain in the forecast for Central and Southside Virginia after noon.

A makeup date is yet to be announced.

Lynchburg is currently 8-0, including a 6-5 victory over Averett in the Grand Slam Triangle Classic on Feb. 24. The Hornets rank in the top five in the country in team batting average, team on-base percentage, and team doubles per game, and the Hornets are receiving votes in the NFCA Division III Coaches Poll.

Lynchburg will hit the diamond again on Friday, March 9, beginning a six-game weekend set in Salisbury, Md., with a doubleheader against host Salisbury at 1 p.m. Dates with Immaculata on Saturday and Rochester on Sunday round out the weekend slate.
