MISENHEIMER, N.C. - First-year Head Coach Jenn Flaherty has announced the 2018 women's lacrosse schedule. 2018 will be a historic year as the Falcons enter their first season as a Division III program.
"I am excited to see what this new era of lacrosse will bring," commented Flaherty who came to Pfeiffer from former Conference Carolina rival Belmont Abbey. "Our team is anxiously waiting for that first whistle to blow on February 17th and we will be working hard in the interim. With a new division, a new conference and new rules, this will be an exciting year for Pfeiffer lacrosse."
The first DIII game in program history will feature the Falcons traveling to Greensboro College on Feb. 17 for a 2 p.m. contest. The Pride are familiar foes, having met Pfeiffer five times in program history with the Falcons holding a perfect 5-0 mark.
The first home DIII game will be on Feb. 24 when Pfeiffer hosts Meredith at 2 p.m. which opens a three-game homestand. The Falcons will play home to Piedmont (Feb. 25) and Brevard (Mar. 3) before hitting the road for three games.
On Mar. 10, Pfeiffer travels to LaGrange in a rematch of last season's 16-3 victory for the Falcons.
The Falcons conclude the regular season on April 7 when they host Averett in the season finale and home finale.
In total, the Falcons have 12 games with an even six at home and six on the road. Pfeiffer will look to build upon last year's nine-win campaign.
