Brevard, N.C. – The Brevard College women’s soccer team’s 2008 schedule has been finalized, as announced by the BC athletics department in conjunction with head coach Liz Stojetz.

Although the upcoming 2008 schedule is a challenging one for the Tornados as they will compete in the tough South Atlantic Conference, BC will play 10 of their 18 regular season matches at home.
The Tornados will open up the 2008 at slate on home on August 29, as they host Columbia College. After the home opener, the Tornados will then hit the road for their next match, playing Anderson University in Anderson, S.C. on September 3.
Brevard will then continue their non-conference schedule with a home contest against Coker College on September 6 and a road match up with Lees-McRae College on September 8.
Coach Stojetz’ squad will then open up South Atlantic Conference play at home on September 11, when the Tornados will play host to Lenoir-Rhyne University.
The Tornados next game will be on the road at Reinhardt College on Saturday, September 13, before returning to Brevard to host their next three games against North Greenville University (9/17), Southern Wesleyan University (9/22) and SAC foe Newberry College (9/24).
Brevard then returns to the road on September 27, as the Tornados will kick-off a four-game road stretch in which they will take on Tusculum College (9/27), Belmont Abbey College (9/29), Lincoln Memorial University (10/2) and Warren Wilson College (10/4).
The next two matches for the Tornados are both conference bouts, as BC welcomes Wingate University to Brevard, NC on October 8 and then plays at Mars Hill College on October 17.
On October 18, the Tornados will host Emmanuel College out of Georgia in non-conference action, which will be followed by a non-conference match up with Converse College on October 24.
The Tornados will then take on Carson-Newman College in Jefferson City, TN on October 29, returning home to wrap up their 2008 regular season play with a match up against the Lady Indians of Catawba College on November 1.
Brevard will then complete in the 2008 South Atlantic Conference tournament, their first year of eligibility, which will be held from November 7-9.
The Tornados are coming off a 4-15-1 season, where BC competed as a provisional member of both the NCAA Division II and the South Atlantic Conference. With no players leaving off the 2007 roster due to graduation and the core of the 2007 roster returning with yet another year of experience under their belts, the Tornados will look to continue their improvement as BC moves into their first year as an NCAA Division II and South Atlantic Conference member.
