Lynchburg women's soccer celebrating an ODAC championship.

Indianapolis, Ind. -- University of Lynchburg's women's soccer team learned its NCAA Division III tournament draw Monday afternoon, and the Hornets will be staying home for the first two rounds of the national championships.

The Hornets will play host to USA South Conference champion Piedmont in first-round play at 1 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 10 on Lynchburg's Shellenberger Field. Emory University and Penn State-Berks will be the other first-round matchup Saturday with the start time set for 3:30 p.m.

The two winners will kick off Sunday, Nov. 11 at 3 p.m.

Admission for each day will be $8 per person and $3 for college students with student ID. Tickets will only be available at the gate.

Lynchburg carries an 18-2-2 record into national tournament play and is ranked No. 16 in the nation by D3soccer.com. The Hornets are riding an 11-match unbeaten streak in which they have outscored their opponents, 51-9.

Lynchburg and Piedmont have never met in women's soccer. The Lions (17-4-1) defeated Methodist, Greensboro, and Maryville (Tenn.) to take the USA South's automatic bid.

Penn State-Berks (15-3-2) was the automatic qualifier from the North Eastern Athletic Conference, besting Keuka, 4-0, in Sunday's title match. Emory U. (13-4-1) earned an at-large bid after finishing 4-2-1 in the United Athletic Association; the 23rd-ranked Eagles are riding a five-match win streak.

It is the program's 12th-straight NCAA tournament berth. The Hornets earned the Old Dominion Athletic Conference's automatic bid by winning a second-straight conference championship over the weekend.

Lynchburg advanced to the NCAA Sweet 16 last season with tournament wins over McDaniel and Christopher Newport. The Hornets won the NCAA Division III national title in 2014.
