Head coach Enza Steele was named ODAC


and All-State Coach of the Year. LC led Divi- sion III in numerous statistical categories, including scoring average, points per game, goals per game, goals against average, and scoring margin. Attack Lindsay Leonard ’13 paced the


Hornets with thirty-one goals and seventy- three points, more than doubling the total of any other ODAC player in both categories, and also added eleven assists, second in the league. She was named to the ODAC, Virginia, and South Region first-teams for her efforts. Katie Kline ’15, the ODAC Rookie of the


Year, burst onto the scene this year with eleven goals, nine assists, and thirty-one points, plac- ing third on the team in all three categories.


Women’s Soccer


Scoring more than 100 goals for the season while posting a 19-2-2 mark, the women’s soccer team captured another ODAC title and secured a sixth-straight trip to the NCAA Division IIITournament. The team once again established itself as a


high-scoring squad that played tough defense. The Hornets allowed only seven goals all sea- son by opponents while LC averaged over four goals a game. After going 2-2 through the first four games


of the season, Lynchburg did not suffer a loss for the rest of the season, a streak beginning with a 5-0 victory over Methodist University. LC went undefeated through the conference slate, which included wins over Emory & Henry University, Washington and Lee Uni- versity, and Virginia Wesleyan College in the ODACTournament. LC faced a tough SUNY-New Paltz squad in the first round of the NCAATour- nament, and ultimately fell in penalty kicks. Brittany Klippstein ’12 was a major factor


in the Hornets offense in 2011 with fourteen goals and seven assists. She scored the lone goal in the ODAC Championship game which helped Lynchburg win its third straight con- ference crown. She earned ODAC and All-State Player of the Year honors and was a first-team NSCAA All-American. LC also benefitted immensely from Dessi


Dupuy ’15, who made her mark this season with a school-record twenty-seven goals. She finished third in the NCAADivision III in total goals scored and fourth in total points, and scored at least three goals in three-straight games. Dupuy scored five goals against East-


ern Mennonite University, tying a school record for most goals in a game. Coach Todd Olsen was named the ODAC


Coach of the Year, while numerous players were named to All-ODAC and All-Region teams.


Men’s Cross Country


The men’s cross country team has established itself as one of the best teams not just in the ODAC, but in the South region as well, cap- turing the second straight South Regional Championship. In late October, Lynchburg hosted the


ODAC Championships at the College’s Clay- tor Nature Study Center, where the Hornets won their fourth consecutive title by one point. Three Hornet runners finished less than .3 seconds ahead of the nearest com- petitor, meaning that if one of them had fallen one spot behind, Lynchburg would not have won its sixteenth title in program history. LC headed to a dusty and windy competi-


tion in Seguin, Texas, for the South Regional Championship, and the Hornets came out on top, defeating twenty-five other colleges, again by only one point. Cody Stanton ’14 continued his great year finishing sixth, and Nolan Compton ’13 beat out several runners on the last straightaway for eighteenth place. Lynchburg’s sixth regional championship


qualified the team for nationals for the third year in a row, and for the eleventh time in program history. The team’s success brought Coach Doug


Thomasey ’05 ODAC Coach of the Year and South Region Coach of the Year accolades, the second year in a row for his winning both awards.
