Women's Soccer Releases 2004 Schedule

View the 2004 FSU Women's Soccer Schedule

FROSTBURG, MD - The Frostburg State women’s soccer team looks to remain atop the Allegheny Mountain Collegiate Conference and make another trip to the NCAA Tournament in 2004. Recently the Bobcats released their highly anticipated schedule that includes a tournament celebrating the FSU women’s soccer program's tenth season.

"We've worked hard the last few years to become a team that good regional opponents want to play and I think we've finally got a great schedule from start to finish," said head coach Brian Parker.

FSU will open its season with two of the toughest teams on the schedule. The Bobcats welcome 2003 NCAA Tournament participant Grove City to Frostburg September 1st before traveling to Baltimore to take on John Hopkins, which was regionally ranked in 2003, September 8th.

On the weekend of September 10th, the Bobcats will host the 10-Year Anniversary Tournament. The tournament is the first women’s soccer tournament to be held at home in years as FSU will welcome Bethany (W.Va.), Eastern Mennonite and Catholic.

Following the tournament, the non-conference schedule continues to boast regional powerhouses, as FSU travels to Allegheny September 19th and Carnegie Mellon September 21st. Allegheny was a 2003 NCAA Tournament participant and Carnegie Mellon was the 2003 ECAC Regional Champion.

FSU will open defense of its back-to-back AMCC titles September 26. In 2004, conference play becomes much more important as the AMCC welcomes three new teams, Medaille, Hilbert and Mt. Aloysius. The winner of the AMCC Tournament will receive an automatic bid to the NCAA Tournament for the first time iun 2004.

"All of our toughest opponents are back from 2003 and the good number of home games will give us a chance to be very successful," said Parker. "Regardless of our final record, we'll be well prepared for the post-season and that ultimately is the objective."

The Bobcats will feature two special dates during conference play. Soccer Parents' Weekend will be October 2nd against Medaille and then Senior Day will be October 16th against Penn State Behrend.

With only one player lost from last season's roster, the Bobcats will be very experienced and prepared to defend their conference titles and make another impressive appearance in the NCAA Tournament.
