Smeltzer-Kraft, who was named as the ODAC Coach of the Year last fall after leading SU to its first-ever league title, has 10 home dates for her squad this season.
Shenandoah opens the year on Saturday, August 26 with a 1 p.m. exhibition contest against Landmark Conference opponent Juniata.
After officially opening the season on Friday, September 1 with a non-league game at Hood, SU hosts Washington and Jefferson on Sunday, September 3 in a 1 p.m. non-league contest.
Washington and Lee, the squad that the Hornets bested for the ODAC title in November, comes to town on the 11th with perennial league power Lynchburg paying a visit on the 15th. That 2 p.m. game concludes Homecoming 2017 for the department.
The final home game, at 2:00 on the 21st versus Virginia Wesleyan, serves as Senior Day for the squad.
The Bridgewater game on Saturday, October 28 is the regular season finale.
"It was a great experience to win it all last year, and I know the squad wants a second championship even more," Smeltzer-Kraft said.
"We had a great spring season and I am confident we are going to be ready to play right from the start."
