BUENA VISTA, Va. — Southern Virginia University head women's soccer coach MaKenzie Cox today announced the team's 2019 schedule.
"We are excited about this season," said Coach Cox. "We have a strong non-conference schedule that will provide great competition. We will face some familiar teams as well as some new opponents to prepare us for our challenging conference matchups."
Southern Virginia is slated for a 19-game regular season with 10 home games at Knight Stadium.
The Knights' season begins in Raleigh, N.C. where they will play a pair of games over the weekend against Meredith on Aug. 30 and N.C. Wesleyan on Aug. 31.
