Tech Announces Inaugural Soccer Schedule

HOUGHTON, Mich. – Michigan Tech has released the schedule for the inaugural season of women’s soccer. The Huskies will play a total of 17 games, 10 of which will be played at Sherman Field.

Tech will host Concordia-St. Paul for the program’s first-ever game on Thursday, Sept. 2. The game will be played under the lights with kick off set for 7:00 p.m.

The Huskies will open Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference play the following the week when they host rival Northern Michigan on Wednesday, Sept. 8.

Tech will host Minnesota Duluth, a 2009 NCAA Tournament Team, for it’s second non-conference game of the season on Sunday, Sept. 12.

Tech will also face two other NCAA Tournament Teams. Defending national champion Grand Valley State will come to Houghton Sept. 17 before hosting Michigan Tech on Oct. 17. The Huskies will host Saginaw Valley State on Sept. 26 before playing at SVSU on Oct. 24.

Tech will play its final home game of the season on Sunday, Oct. 10 against Findlay.

“Our schedule features many quality opponents and will also allow us to play many of our games at home,” said head coach Michelle Jacob. “I am excited to get the season under way and start competing.”

The Huskies will also be eligible for both the GLIAC and NCAA Tournaments.
