WINCHESTER, Va.  – Shenandoah University Head Field Hockey Coach Ashley Smeltzer-Kraft announced her 2018 schedule Wednesday morning.

Smeltzer-Kraft, a two-time ODAC Coach of the Year honoree, has nine home matches on the slate for 2018 season.

The Hornets open on Friday, August 31 with a 7 p.m. non-league contest against longtime DIII power Gettysburg College.

Three non-league home games follow in September – the fifth versus Hood, the ninth versus York (Pa.) and the 23rd versus Wesley.

In October, Bridgewater, Ferrum, Roanoke and Eastern Mennonite all visit for ODAC tilts with the Hornets also hosting Frostburg State on the 23rd.

The Gettysburg, Bridgewater, Roanoke and Frostburg State contests are all night games with Roanoke coming in for a 6 p.m. matchup and the other three starting at 7.

The Ferrum contest, the first between the Hornets and Panthers in ODAC play, is a 5 p.m. start and is part of Homecoming 2018.

Smeltzer-Kraft's club plays at Washington & Jefferson, Dickinson, Stevenson, St. Mary's (Md.) and Mary Washington in non-league games.

Road ODAC contests include Lynchburg, Randolph-Macon and Virginia Wesleyan.

"Our goal this fall is the same as every year – to win an ODAC championship," Smeltzer-Kraft said.

"We had a great spring season and the team is looking forward to getting back out onto the field."
