The Transylvania Athletics Complex is equiped with a parking lot directly adjacent to Pat Decon Stadium which will be available during any Lacrosse contest. Parking around campis at Transylvania University is tentatively FREE on nights and weekends.

Coming from out-of-town? Here are several resources for you while staying in the Lexington, Ky. area.       

Where to Eat Where to Stay What to Do

Local hotel and food options/suggestions can be found using the links above.  Ideally, we would push businesses for team meals toward our sponsor, but we do not have the finalized as of yet. Let a member of the Transylvania staff know if you need any further detail when it comes to lodging or food.  

Teams/fans who are new to the area may also want to check out the Lexington Visitors Center for more information.



Single elimination format.  The top four teams in the ORLC standings at the end of the season qualify for the conference tournament. In the semifinals the first seed plays the fourth seed, while the second seed plays the third seed. The two winning teams advance to face each other in the championship.



Transylvania University is not responsible for anything lost or stolen on the field or from the locker rooms.  Each team will be responsible for picking up any trash/debris from their respective areas at the conclusion of each game.  


Athletic training staff will be on site throughout the weekend with access to beds/tables in the facility.  Ice will be accessible, modalities will be on hand.  Any specific or additional traning needs should be provided to our Head Athletic Trainer, Alaina White (awhite@transy.edu), in writing prior to the meet.  If teams wish to bring their own massage tables, there will be an area in the stadium for trainers/massage therapists.


Credentials are issued to members of the working press on assignment. Space is limited in the press boxes at the Transylvania Athletic Complex, and is prioritized for sports information/athletics communications and team film staff, live audio and video broadcast personnel, and print writers and photographers.


Photographers wishing to take pictures at any Transylvania University Athletics sporting event should download, complete and return the Athletics Photo Credential and proof of insurance to Director of Sports Information Justin Sweeney or Assistant Sports Information Director Matt Hadley prior to the day of competition.


The university has a lightening notification system that will trigger facility staff to clear the field and bleachers in the case of inclement weather.


Concessions will be available for spectators throughout the tournament at Pat Deacon Stadium.


Smoking and/or tobacco use of any kind is prohibited on campus at Transylvania University. Violators are subject to fines and/or other disciplinary actions taken by the facility and university staff.
