BUENA VISTA, Va. — Southern Virginia University's head softball coach Tiffane Pendleton, who enters her first season at the helm of the program, today announced the team's schedule for the 2018 season.

"We are incredibly excited for this season," Coach Pendleton commented. "Our team is looking strong with a good core of girls who know how to work hard and work together."

The Knights' season opens against Salem College on Feb. 16 as a part of the Spirit Invitational, which also includes the next day's matchup with Shenandoah University. The Knights will play their first home game of the season on March 3 with a doubleheader against Lancaster Bible College, kicking off a ten-game home stretch.

Capital Athletic Conference play begins on the road against Penn-St. Harrisburg on March 31, and will continue through April.

"Our team is hungry this year," Pendleton said. "We are willing and ready to be competitive and earn some big wins."
