Raleigh, N.C. – The Peace College soccer team opens the 2010 season September 1 playing host to Sweet Briar College at WakeMed Soccer Park’s Koka Booth Stadium in Cary, N.C. The non-conference contest against the Vixens will be the first of seven home games for PC at the state-of-the-art facility.
Keith Jenkins, the Pacers new head coach, will use this home field hub as one of the primary building blocks for his program.
"This facility offers us many advantages," Jenkins said. "The field is one of the best in the nation and the spectator seating is outstanding. I think this will help us both in recruiting and with the current players in the program."
The team remains in Raleigh Labor Day weekend for pairings with Salem and Guilford in the Meredith Classic. PC heads to Georgia the following week to face Agnes Scott and Piedmont and wraps up the three-week road series with Hollins and Salem.
The Pacers host two additional non-league contests versus Columbia and Warren Wilson before heading to Staunton, Va. October 2 for the team’s USA South opener with Mary Baldwin. Peace defeated the Fighting Squirrels in the lone win of 2009.
The Pacers host league foes Ferrum, Averett, Greensboro, and Methodist at home this season.
See you on the sidelines!
