UNA Releases 2010 Soccer Schedule

FLORENCE -- Coming off the best season in school history, the University of North Alabama women's soccer team will take on one of the most demanding schedules it has faced in 2010. The Lions, 19-4-1 last season, finished as the runner-up in the Gulf South Conference Tournament, made their first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance and notched their first NCAA post-season win.

With the majority of the 2009 squad returning, including All-Americans Chloe Roberts and Nikki Brown, UNA coach Graham Winkworth has his squad taking on a rugged schedule that opens with four straight road matches against in-region opponents. The Lions will only play seven of their 18 games at home and will face five Sunshine State Conference opponents in Barry, Nova Southeaster, Lynn, Eckerd and Florida Southern.

Other non-conference opponents include Clayton College and State, Texas Womans' University, Lambuth, Spring Hill and Montevallo.


UNA's 2010 home opener will be on Wednesday, Sept. 15 against Clayton College and State at 7 p.m. The Lions will have home GSC matches against Christian Brothers, West Georgia, Harding and West Florida.
