Women’s Soccer Announces Fall Schedule

By Nick Porter

BUENA VISTA, Va. — Head women's soccer coach MaKenzie Cox, who shed her "interim" title in January, today released the fall 2017 schedule, comprising 18 contests.

"Each game will require us to come out ready to play," Coach Cox stated. "This year will be challenging, we have a lot of great competition on our schedule."

The Knights will open the season at Meredith College as they face N.C. Wesleyan and Meredith. The home opener will be that next week, on Wednesday, September 6 against Bridgewater.

Capital Athletic Conference action will begin on September 23 as Southern Virginia hosts Salisbury to kick off league play. The team will also have a home game on homecoming weekend, October 7 as they host Wesley.

"Last year we improved in nearly every statistical category," Cox continued. "We still have room to improve and will try to do so. We will work to become more consistent and establishing the tone for each game."
