Lynchburg, Va. -- University of Lynchburg athletics and director of men's and women's track & field Jim Sprecher are excited to unveil the Hornets' 2019-20 indoor and outdoor track & field meet schedule.

Lynchburg enters the 2019-20 campaign off a successful 2018-19 that saw the Hornet women sweep the Old Dominion Athletic Conference's indoor and outdoor championships. The Lynchburg men took a pair of third-place finishes in the conference meets, and Hornets topped the podium in 16 events between the four championships.

The 2019-20 indoor season starts where it ended a year ago with a Saturday, Dec. 7 trip to Salem and Roanoke College's Cregger Center for a one-day meet. The indoor season ramps back up after the holiday break, building up to the ODAC championships, again hosted by Roanoke, set for Feb. 29 and March 1.

As the indoor season winds down two weekends later with the NCAA Division III championships at JDL Fast Track in Winston-Salem, N.C., and Lynchburg will kick off the outdoor season that same weekend with a trip to Coastal Carolina University's meet in Conway, S.C.

The annual Dr. Jack M. Toms Alumni Invitational will become a one-day meet at Lynchburg this season and is set for Saturday, March 28. Check back with LynchburgSports.com for details on the home meet later this autumn.

Lynchburg will wrap up the outdoor season at the ODAC championships, set for April 17-18 in Virginia Beach at Virginia Wesleyan University.

The NCAA championships will be May 21-23 at the Polisseni Track & Field Complex in Rochester, N.Y.
