2010 Season Review The 2010 women’s lacrosse season can best be summed up as one of the best seasons in the team’s history. The Hornets won 14 games to finish with an overall record of 144, posted a 6-2 mark in ODAC play to finish third in the conference, and also advanced to the ODAC Tournament Championship game. The 14 wins marks the second highest single season total and the six ODAC wins is tied for the third most in team history. The Hornets last advanced to the ODAC title game in 2001, and the trip to the title games marks the first under the direction of head coach Bruce Reid. Numerous Hornets were First-Team All-ODAC awarded for their Lesley Buckingham outstanding individual achievements and for helping catapult Lynchburg into the top five of the region. Head mentor Bruce Reid was tabbed as the ODAC Coach of the Year, his first Coach of the Year award, this spring for helping propel the Hornets back into contention for the ODAC title. Six athletes garnered All-ODAC accolades, including three first-teamers. Headlining the All-ODAC selections are Lesley Buckingham, Morgan Logue, and Emily First-Team All-ODAC McMillan. Buckingham made her mark as one Morgan Logue of the top offensive threats in the country this
spring. She poured in an LC record 59 goals and also handed out a team-high 17 assists to accumulate 76 points. Logue was also named All-Region and proved to be one of the most well rounded players as she is second on the team in goals (39), points (49), and groundballs (29) and also led the team in draw controls (44) and caused turnovers (29). McMillan was the backbone of the Hornet defense this year that led the ODAC in goals against average and ranks 17th nationally. This was McMillan’s first year in her defensive role and improved tremendously as the season went on First-Team All-ODAC Lindsay Gengras and Christina Tran Emily McMillan earned second-team honors while Katie Ollice received an honorable mention to the All-ODAC team. Gengras fought through early season injuries and improved throughout the season, culminating in a spot on the ODAC All-Tournament team. Gengras helped carry the team over the stretch run of the season with 15 goals in the last five games and finished second on the team in assists (11) third on the team in points (35), fourth in goals (24). Tran was a force in the net for LC this year, recording a 7.78 goals against average while stopping 51.6% of shots on goal. Trans also ranks 16th in the country in goals against average and 21st in save percentage. Ollice finished her career this spring placing Second-Team All-ODAC third on the team in goals with 25 and tied Lindsay Gengras for third in points with 35 and assists with 10.
Ollice also stands tied for fifth in LC career in points at 185 and goals with 138 and is tied for seventh in assists with 47. The Hornets weren’t just composed of All-ODACers, however, as several other players were instrumental to the team’s success. Patty Sheahan tallied 19 goals and nine assists and was the primary taker of draw controls, enabling her to grab 23 groundballs and 26 draw controls. Julie Will had a fine first season, finishing with 21 goals and four assists. Kendall Adkin also enjoyed a good rookie campaign, tallying fifteen goals and four assists. Meredith Second-Team AllStuart, another strong freshman, found the back ODAC Christina Tran of the net 11 times. Sarah Shannon, another member of the strong freshman class, was a strong defensive midfielder, tallying six goals and six assists while doing an excellent job clearing the ball. Katie Reynolds, Kat Miller, and Kristina Robertson helped solidify the stout Hornet defense, each starting the majority of contests and helping the Hornets post one of the top goals against average in the nation. With only two seniors lost to graduation with a bevy of experience and highly skilled upperclassmen returning to the fold, look for the Hornets to challenge for the ODAC crown yet Honorable Mention again next season.

Hallowed Grounds of Shellenberger Field At the heart of Lynchburg College’s athletic facilities is the majestic Shellenberger Field. Named in honor of the founding men’s soccer coach, Bill Shellenberger, the facility features a large, new artificial turf field, an eight-lane track, and a spectator capacity of 3,000. Shellenberger Field is a formidable venue for visiting teams, with chair and bleacher seating on one side of the field and residence halls on the other, where student crowds gather to cheer on their Hornets. At one end of the field stands the LC hornet statue; at the other end, the Victory Bell Tower, which gets a lot of use given the strength of LC’s athletic programs.
