WINCHESTER, Va. – This weekend brings six home events, including three Senior Day contests and two that have been designated as "Hornets for Hornets" games.

A new program started by interim Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Dr. Brian Wigley, the "Hornets for Hornets" program has been created to highlight one game for each program in each season.

The department invites student-athletes not playing that day to attend the "Hornets for Hornets" wearing their "Big Picture" t-shirts and support the squad in action.

On Saturday, the volleyball match versus Roanoke at 11 a.m. and the field hockey contest versus Virginia Wesleyan at 2 p.m. have both been designated as "Hornets for Hornets" contests.

A win for the field hockey team in that 2 p.m. ODAC matchup will clinch an ODAC Tournament berth for coach Ashley Smeltzer-Kraft's squad.

Volleyball and field hockey, along with men's soccer, have Senior Day contests planned for this weekend.

The volleyball team gets that started on Friday night with its 7 p.m. ODAC contest versus Hollins. Prior to the match, Kaitlyn Kelley, the squad's lone senior, will be honored for her four years with the program.

Saturday brings the remaining two Senior Day contests – the aforementioned field hockey game versus Virginia Wesleyan at 2 and the men's soccer contest, also versus Virginia Wesleyan, at 5.

A total of 12 student-athletes will be recognized prior to those two games for their academic and athletic successes.

The final two home events this weekend come on the tennis court as men's and women's tennis each host USTA Open Challenge tournaments.

The football and women's soccer teams are on the road – football plays at Guilford while women's soccer travels to Sweet Briar. Both of those Saturday contests are set for 1 p.m.
