Lynchburg, Va. -- University of Lynchburg athletics and director of men's and women's swimming Brad Dunn are thrilled to announce the Hornets' 2019-20 meet schedule.

This coming season will be the first for Lynchburg swimming since the program was put on hold in 1971.

The program will compete for the first time since that year on Friday, Sept. 27 in a 6 p.m. dual meet at crosstown rival Randolph College.

The Hornets will hit the road again the second weekend in October, heading to Washington and Lee University for the Old Dominion Athletic Conference Relays.

Lynchburg will play host to its first home meet Friday, Oct. 18 at the Liberty University Natatorium with a double dual against Bridgewater College and University of Mary Washington. Competition is set to start at 6 p.m.

The Hornets will close out October with a road dual at Emory & Henry College Oct. 26 before returning home Nov. 9 to play host to the Lynchburg Invitational.

The team will close out 2019 two weekends later with the two-day Randolph-Macon Invitational in Ashland.

Lynchburg will open up 2020 against Randolph-Macon as well, competing in a home dual meet with the Yellow Jackets Thursday, Jan. 16. Road duals with ODAC foes Hampden-Sydney and Ferrum will close out the regular season as the Hornets ramp up for the conference championship meet, scheduled for Feb. 6-9 at the Greensboro Aquatic Center in Greensboro, N.C.
