FREMONT, Neb. – The Midland University women's soccer team has officially released its 2017 schedule. The Lady Warriors are coming off an explosive offensive season in which they set new program records for goals and points scored.
Midland's new season opens in Columbia, Missouri for a pair of games on August 25-26. The Lady Warriors will then travel to the west coast for two games in southern California.
Games in Aliso Viejo and San Diego will afford Midland's California native players to play at "home" for the first time in their collegiate careers.
The Lady Warriors' home opener is slated for Wednesday, September 6 against Presentation College. Midland's 2017 Homecoming opponent is McPherson College in a 5 p.m. game at Heedum Field on September 16th.
Conference play will open up on the road for the Warriors at Northwestern College on September 23rd, followed by the first GPAC home contest on September 26th.
On October 18th, Midland will look to avenge an overtime upset-win by Concordia in the 2016 postseason on the Warriors' home field. Senior Day is set for the regular season finale on October 28th.
The Lady Warriors posted a record of 15-5 (8-2 GPAC) last year for their most wins since the 2009 campaign. Seven of Midland's eight All-GPAC selections will return in 2017 including First Teamer Nayeli Rodriguez. As a freshman in 2016, Rodriguez set single-season program records with 22 goals, 11 assists and 55 points.
