Field Hockey Sets Sights On 2012

Field Hockey Sets Sights On 2012

SWEET BRIAR, Va. ---  With the opening of the 2012 season closing fast, the Vixen field hockey team is deep in preparations for the first game.  Athletes and their families arrived on campus on Saturday to a whirlwind day of moving in and getting information. 

After a good night's sleep, the field hockey team took to the field for the first time early Sunday morning.  Since then, it has been a double session of practice each day as the team uses this time to come together on and off the field.  The team will continue with practices until Sunday when they participate in the ODAC Playday hosted by Eastern Mennonite University.  The Vixens will play four 25 minute games during the afternoon. 

Sweet Briar will return to Thayer Field for a week of fine tuning before kicking off 2012 by hosting a tournament beginning September 1.  SBC will take on Cedar Crest and Bryn Mawr during the opening weekend tourney. 

The complete 2012 schedule and preseason roster are now available at vixenathletics.com.
