Presbyterian College and women's soccer head coach Brian Purcell announced the 2017 schedule on Wednesday. This season's schedule consists of four exhibition matches and a 16-match regular season with seven home matches.
“We're excited to get started with the 2017 campaign,” said Coach Purcell. “Our season is almost two seasons in one. The first half of the season we're looking forward to playing some of our local non-conference rivals. We are renewing our series with the College of Charleston and The Citadel as well as playing many of our other traditional rivals. Then we move into the business part of the season with our conference schedule and we look forward to the pressure and intensity which that brings.”
