Women's Volleyball: Eagles Announce 2011 Schedule
Nashua – An eight-match home slate highlights the Daniel Webster College women's volleyball program's 24-match 2011 regular season schedule as announced today by the DWC department of athletics.
The Eagles, three-time defending NECC regular season champions, come off a best ever 18-8 campaign last season which once again included a perfect 7-0 record in NECC regular season play. The Eagles fell just short of their goal of the NECC tournament title, falling in last season's championship, but earned a first-ever at-large bid to the ECAC New England Championship tournament.
The Eagles open the season with three home contests including an extremely rare event. DWC hosts the University of Southern Maine on Wednesday, September 7th at 7:00 p.m. to serve up the season and follows the very next night with a rare doubleheader with Albertus Magnus College with the matches to begin at 5:30 p.m.
DWC heads on the road to St. Joseph College of Connecticut for a regional tri-match that included Mount Holyoke College on the 10th, visits Anna Maria College on the 13th, and returns home to host Suffolk University on the 15th.
The next four matches are away from home with stops at Framingham State University, a neutral matchup with Lasell College, and trips to Wentworth Institute and Saint Joseph of Maine to close the month.
DWC opens its October schedule hosting Regis College in their NECC opener on the 1st, visits NECC rival Mitchell College, Mount Ida College and Pine Manor College on the 4th, 6th and 8th respectively, hosts Lesley University in a rematch of last year's NECC title match on October 11th and heads back out on the road to face Rivier College, Bay Path College, Newbury College and Elms College through the middle of the month.
The Eagles close the regular season at home hosting NECC foe Becker College on October 26th and fellow NECC rival Southern Vermont College on the 29th.
The NECC quarterfinals take place on Tuesday, November 1st at higher seeds while the final four, hosted by the highest remaining seed, is slated for Friday, November 5th and Saturday, November 6th.
