Lancaster Bible College is pleased to announce the addition of three NCAA sports for the 2018-19 academic year. The Chargers will add field hockey, men's golf and women's golf next year, bringing the total number of athletic offerings at Lancaster Bible to 16.

It has been 32 years since the college offered field hockey as a varsity sport. The Chargers dropped the program after the 1985 season to begin the women's volleyball team. There will be an immediate national search for a field hockey head coach and the timing of the hire, as well as the construction of the team, will determine whether the Chargers will play a full or abbreviated schedule during the 2018 season. The Chargers will be one of four North Eastern Athletic Conference schools in 2018-19 that have field hockey, and the Chargers will look to play a full NEAC schedule and compete for a NEAC Championship during the 2019-20 academic year. The NEAC currently has an agreement with the North Atlantic Conference (NAC) and the two conference champions compete for the NCAA automatic bid to the NCAA Division III National Tournament.

The additions of both men's and women's golf will be new offerings for the Chargers and a search for a part-time head coach will begin immediately. Golf is played in both the fall and spring and the Chargers will look to play a full schedule during the 2018-19 academic year.

Senior Vice President for Student Experience Josh Beers believes the addition of these three sports will not only benefit LBC's Athletic Department, but the entire college as well. "I am thrilled we are adding additional sports that reflect our ongoing commitment to recruit mission fit student-athletes who make a difference inside and outside the classroom," Beers said. "These additional sports provide added opportunities for students who want athletics to be a vital part of their collegiate experience."
