2018 Bridgewater College Field Hockey Schedule

BRIDGEWATER, Va. -
Bridgewater College field hockey has announced its 2018 schedule.

The Eagles open conference play on the road at the ODAC's newest-member, Ferrum, on Sept. 29. They will also travel to Shenandoah on October 3, before playing four of their next five at home (including ODAC matches vs. Washington & Lee on Oct. 6, Randolph-Macon on Oct. 12 and Virginia Wesleyan on Oct. 17).

The Eagles, who will celebrate Senior Day on Sunday, Oct. 14 vs. Hendrix, wrap up the regular season at home on Oct. 25 vs. Roanoke.

The Old Dominion Athletic Conference playoffs begin on October 30 with the quarterfinals. The Eagles lost in that round to Shenandoah last season at Jopson Field, after beating the Hornets 1-0 in the final regular season contest of the campaign.

"I'm very excited about our schedule this season," said head coach Allyson Kenyon. "Not only do we welcome Ferrum to the ODAC as our first conference game, we have a great lineup of non-conference opponents to prepare us for the challenge of winning another ODAC Championship in November."

Bridgewater has a tough start, traveling to Christopher Newport on August 31 (along with playing a yet-to-be-determined opponent on CNU's campus the next day) and then hosting Mary Washington on Sept. 5. CNU made the NCAA tournament last fall, after beating Mary Washington in the CAC playoffs.

"Opening with perennial powerhouses Christopher Newport University and the University of Mary Washington will really test our young squad early on and allow us to see if we need to make any adjustments to our system or set pieces," said Kenyon.
