The Illinois Tech Women’s Soccer team has released its 2017 schedule. It features 19 matches overall, 10 matches at Stuart Field, and trips to Indiana and Wisconsin.
With a home-heavy schedule, especially in October, Head Coach Roshane Ellison is hoping Stuart Field gives the team a great home-field advantage in 2017.
“It is important we make home a fortress and be ultra-competitive on the road,” said Ellison, who is heading into his third season as head coach of the women’s soccer program. “We have a challenging schedule this fall, going up against formidable opponents in the Midwest region. I have the utmost confidence that our team will be up to the task and will do their best to represent the university.”
The first of those home contests will be the second match of the season. Following the season-opener at Anderson University in Indiana on Saturday, September 2, the Scarlet Hawks will host Trine University on Sunday, September 3 at 6 p.m. This will mark the third consecutive year Illinois Tech opposes the Thunder in the second match of the season, as the Scarlet Hawks are 1-0-1 in those contests.
Illinois Tech is looking to qualify for its second USCAA Championships over the last three seasons. All 2017 home matches are set to have live stats, audio, and video. The live audio will be powered by the Illinois Media School.
