Soccer Schedules Released...Face Tough NCAA Tourney Foes
Both the mens and womens soccer schedules were posted today on the Tribe athletic pages...both are demanding
and include several 2011 NCAA Tourney opponents. See Tribe pages for full schedules.
The Tribe Women figure to have one of their best teams and will realistically compete for a national title...they may be that good. They open the season at home in a big way---facing 2011 national title runner up, Duke on August 17 at Martin Family Stadium. There are also road games against 2011 NCAA Tourney teams at Tennessee and Auburn. We also play
VCU at Martin Family Stadium; we defeated VCU, 1-0 in overtime, in the CAA Championship game last year and now, of course, have them at home with the Rams now in the A-10.
The men have been recruiting heavily--with the top-ranked CAA recruiting class coming in this season--and, while not still back to where the team was previously, this team should compete for the conference title. The men, too, have a challenging schedule that includes 2011 NCAA Tourney teams at St.John's, at Creighton and home with Elon. We also have an interesting home game with Davidson--is this a forerunner of the Wildcats joining the CAA?
