BROOKLYN, NY --- Although ASA Women's Soccer won't open its inaugural season until this Fall, Head Coach Brett Polow has been diligently working to make sure the program gets off to a positive start.
On Monday, Coach Polow announced his tentative 2013 schedule, along with an update on the student-athletes that have committed to the Lady Avengers' first recruiting class.
ASA's current 2013 schedule is set to feature at least five home matches and 16 matches in total. Highlights of the opening slate include matches against three NCAA colleges (SUNY Purchase, Brooklyn College & FIT), back-to-back Maryland road games in October, and a home-and-home Region XV series against Monroe College. The schedule is expected to be expanded, with several preseason games yet to be determined.
