Chris Adams releases 2008 soccer schedule

Lady Saints to host defending national champions at home

DAHLONEGA, GA – North Georgia College & State University head coach Chris Adams released the 2008 schedule for the Lady Saints soccer program this morning which will feature back-to-back home matches against the defending NCAA DII National Champions in the University of Tampa and Columbus State University who are the defending Peach Belt Conference regular season and tournament champions.

With possibly the toughest schedule in the history of the North Georgia soccer program, the Lady Saints will be taking on ranked teams in and out of conference play.

Some of the best teams in the country will make their way to the North Georgia Soccer Complex this fall as three teams from last season's NCAA Tournament final 16 will make an appearance in the span of seven days.

The University of Tampa Spartans, the defending National Champions, will come to town on Sunday, September 14, followed by Columbus State University Wednesday, September 21, and finally the University of Montevallo will come calling Sunday, September 21, to finish off one of the most competitive stretches in Lady Saints' soccer history.

North Georgia will also face the likes of Barry University and Armstrong Atlantic State University on the road in 2008, while PBC rivals Clayton State University and USC Aiken will travel to Dahlonega for a pair of late-season league match ups.

The Lady Saints will kick off the 2008 season at home with an exhibition game against Division I Georgia Southern University on Sunday, August 17, at 2 p.m.
