April 4, 2005
Washington, DC - Trips to San Diego State, UC Santa Barbara and St. Louis University, along with a full slate of Atlantic 10 conference battles, highlights the George Washington University's 2005 women's soccer schedule.
The Colonials open up the season at the Naval Academy August 26 and will face the Midshipmen for the first time since 2001.
GW then makes its home opener two days later against the University of Maryland Baltimore County at the Mount Vernon Athletic Complex in Washington, DC.
Two more consecutive home matches against James Madison University (Sept. 4) and St. Francis (PA) (Sept. 9) precedes a Colonials' West Coast swing to San Diego, CA. GW will face San Diego State University Sept. 16 and the University of California Santa Barbara on Sept. 18.
GW then returns home to play American University Sept. 21.
"We are packed this year with outstanding regional competition including Navy, JMU, UMBC and American," head coach Tanya Vogel said. "Additionally, our September trip to San Diego State and UC Santa Barbara will expose us to some of the finest in the west. Our hopes are that our matches in August and September will prepare us for the Atlantic 10."
Conference play for the Colonials gets underway Oct. 1 when they travel to Philadelphia, PA to face LaSalle.
Next up are home matches against Dayton and Xavier, Oct. 7 and 9, and a return trip to Philadelphia to face Saint Joseph's and Temple, Oct. 14 and 16.
UMass and Rhode Island will then battle GW at Mount Vernon Oct. 21 and 23.
Prior to the Colonials' A-10 regular season finale against Duquesne in Pittsburgh, PA Oct. 30, GW will travel to Missouri to meet St. Louis Oct. 28.
The 2005 Atlantic 10 tournament is scheduled for Nov. 3-6 and will be hosted by Dayton.
GW just missed qualifying for the conference tournament in 2004. The Colonials entered the last day of the regular season in a three-way tie for the sixth and final spot in the tournament but dropped a 1-0 decision at Saint Joe's to end their season.
