SEWANEE, Tenn. - Announced by first-year head coach Steve Simpson, the 2019 schedule of Sewanee field hockey has been announced.
The Tigers will be on the road for much of 2019, as nine of the 15 games will be away from Puett Field.
Despite the road-heavy schedule, Sewanee will open the season on Aug. 31 at home against DePauw (Ind.).
The Purple and Gold will face one new opponent in Southern Virginia at home Sept. 13 and 14.
The Southern Athletic Association opener will take place Oct. 5 at Rhodes, defending conference tournament champions.
The Tigers will play two games against each conference opponent, but just one game from the season series will count to the conference record.
The 2019 SAA Tournament will occur on Nov. 8-10 on the campus of Transylvania University.
The Tigers wrapped up the 2018 season with a 10-6 record and finished in the opening round of the SAA Tournament.
Head coach Steve Simpson enters his first year as the head coach of the Tigers field hockey program.
