Forest, Va. -- Lynchburg College's softball team will carry the No. 3 seed into this weekend's Old Dominion Athletic Conference tournament, the league announced Monday evening.

The Hornets will take on sixth-seeded Eastern Mennonite in their first tournament game at 2 p.m. Friday, April 27 on Field 3 of the James I. Moyer Sports Complex in Salem, Va. Lynchburg brings a 28-10 overall record and a 12-6 mark in conference play to the tournament, the the Hornets are riding a seven-game win streak after a pair of doubleheader sweeps over the weekend.

Defending national champion Virginia Wesleyan leads the field as the top seed, followed by No. 2-seed Randolph-Macon. Roanoke, Emory & Henry, Eastern Mennonite, Randolph, and Guilford round out the eight-team field.

The tournament will be played in double-elimination format. Lynchburg is guaranteed two games Friday. The first-round winner between the Hornets and Royals will play the winner of Randolph-Macon and Randolph at 7 p.m. on Field 3 Friday. The loser will play the loser of that matchup at 5 p.m. on Field 3. LC went 2-2 in tournament play a season ago.

The Hornets have won six ODAC championships in program history, last hoisting the trophy in 2009.
