The Presbyterian College women’s soccer team and Head Coach Brian Purcell have announced the 2015 season schedule, featuring eight home games to be played at Edens Field at Martin Stadium.
“We are excited about the balance and potential for development of our team given our schedule for the fall,” said Coach Purcell. “There are really three distinct components which each add their own flavor to the schedule. The first is the non-conference portion of the schedule against our traditional local rivals. Secondly, we have two great weekend trips where we compete against diverse competition and some teams we haven't played in several years. Then we finish the season with the intensity and excitement of the Big South schedule. We are looking forward to the challenge and seeing what the season holds for us.”
