Lynch was one of the first four-year lettermen in school history once the NCAA allowed freshmen to compete on the varsity level. A four-year starter from 1971-74 behind home plate, Lynch was a two-time All-Middle Atlantic Conference First Team choice.

Despite playing in fewer games per season than current players, Lynch appears in the top-40 in the F&M record book in 16 different categories. He sits atop the list in lowest stolen base pct. against with a perfect 0-23 (.000) mark. He also ranks second in most runners caught stealing (23), fourth in putouts (563), 10th in most sacrifice hits (6) and 11th in both home runs (6) and walks (53).  What makes Lynch’s statistics even more impressive is the fact that F&M played against many Division I teams during his career. Twenty-two percent of the Diplomats’ opponents throughout Lynch’s four seasons were Division I squads.
