Scots in New Conference
MARYVILLE – The Maryville Women's Soccer team has published its 17-match schedule for 2022.
The Scots kick off the season at the Sewanee Classic with a matchup against Adrian on Sept. 3 and then take on Mount St. Joseph the following day. In road contests, Maryville will also take on nonconference foes Asbury, Berry, and Birmingham-Southern.
Home play begins for the Scots on Sept. 9 when the team hosts the Maryville Fall Classic. The two-day event will see Maryville take on Spalding on Friday and Transylvania on Saturday. Covenant will also be in town to face the two Kentucky schools in neutral site action each day.
The Collegiate Conference of the South is the new conference home for the Scots in 2022. The inaugural lineup of the league features Belhaven as well as the former members of the USA South's West Division except for Brevard. MC faces Belhaven at home in their CCS opener on Sept. 22.
"We're really excited about the new conference and the new conference schedule," Maryville head coach Pepe Fernandez said. "It's fun to have something a little different and we are looking forward to how all of that is going to play out.
"The women are hosting a tournament, and we have some really good teams coming in. That's a good way to kick off the year for the women, a team that will be almost brand new this fall. We've got 6-7 starters returning but it's a relatively new team. We're playing in a new conference with new rules, and some additional competition that is going to make it a lot of fun for everybody."
