GOSHEN, Ind. – The Goshen College Athletics Department released its fall 2012 schedules on Tuesday.
Schedules for varsity men's and women's soccer, men's and women's cross country, men's and women's tennis, and volleyball are now available online at www.GoLeafs.net. Schedules for men's and women's golf (who compete in the fall in addition to their championship play in the spring) and junior varsity programs will be made available at a later date.
A pair of teams will make preseason trips out of state for training and scrimmages. The women's soccer team is headed to Orange Beach (Ala.) - site of the NAIA National Championships - between August 8-18, while the volleyball program will head to Great Falls (Mont.) for a tournament from August 14-19.
A number of scrimmages will happen mid-to-late August, but the first official home contests of the academic year will be a volleyball tri-way as the Maple Leafs host Purdue University North Central and Concordia University (Mich.) on August 23.
The first Mid-Central College Conference contest for any team is August 28 when the women's tennis team travels to Indiana Wesleyan University.
Other highlights of the fall schedules are what is believed to be a school-record 18 home volleyball matches, a seven-match home stand for the men's soccer team, a four-match MCC home stand for women's soccer, and the annual Goshen Hokum Karem cross country meet on September 1.
