Lynchburg brings back wrestling


University of Lynchburg is bringing men’s wrestling back to campus for the 2025-2026 season after a forty year hiatus. The team will compete in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference and has begun the search for a head coach. The team will train at the nearby Crosswhite Athletic Club which will have dedicated locker rooms and training space for the Hornets.

Lynchburg previously sponsored the sport from the 1960s to the 1980s before discontinuing the program in 1984. They will join fellow ODAC full members Roanoke, Washington and Lee, Averett, Shenandoah, and Randolph (starting this year) along with associate members Southern Virginia and Greensboro to make an eight-team conference when they begin competition in 2025. (Ferrum is currently in the ODAC but will have left for Division II for the 2025-2026 season)
