Soccer Preseason in Full Swing

SWEET BRIAR, Va. --- The Vixen Soccer program began its fall 2012 preseason on Saturday, August 18.  Fall sport preseason student-athletes descended upon campus for a mid-day check in followed by separate student-athlete and parent information sessions.

 

Members of the Sweet Briar College administration welcomed both new and returning students and their families.   Academic dean of the college Amy Jessen-Marshall and dean of co-curricular life Cheryl Steele presented at the parent information session. Faculty athletic representative Dr. John Morrissey also was on hand for the parent session, while President Parker gave remarks during the Welcome Back picnic.

 

After dinner, all student-athletes were treated to leadership training led by Vixen Lacrosse head coach Eboni Preston.  Later in the evening athletes completed required paperwork and participated in a Social Media awareness campaign led by assistant field hockey coach Grace Loughead '04.

 

Vixen Soccer head coach Kevin Fabulich returns six players and adds 12 newcomers to the preseason roster.  The 2012 playing schedule opens with a road contest at William Peace University on Friday, August 31.  The SBC squad plays its first home match on Saturday, September 8 when the Owls of Bryn Mawr visit Babcock Field.  Old Dominion Athletic Conference play starts with an away match at Emory & Henry College.
