By CSU Sports Information
COLUMBUS - Columbus State University head women's soccer coach Jay Entlich announced the 2019 Lady Cougar schedule.
"This might be the most challenging schedule we ever put together," stated Entlich. "Testing yourself throughout the season is crucial to postseason success, and we will have to earn every victory this season."
"I know we are very excited about the upcoming year and can't wait for fall camp to get going."
The 18-match slate begins on Sept. 5 with CSU participating in the Embry-Riddle Classic. The Lady Cougars will take on the Eagles to kick off the year before playing Barry to close out the event.
Columbus State will play 11 Peach Belt Conference matches in 2019, the most since 2016, as Albany State is competing in its first year as associate members. The first-ever meeting between the schools will take place on Oct. 23 in Albany, Ga. PBC play will start with a bang with CSU hosting North Georgia on Sept. 18.
The PBC Tournament will begin on Nov. 12 with the quarterfinals being hosted by the top seeds. The semifinals and championship will be played on Nov. 15 and Nov. 17 in Evans, Ga.
Columbus State has won six straight PBC regular season titles while capturing three of the last four PBC Tournament championships. In 2018, the Lady Cougars went 18-1-2 and advanced to the NCAA Tournament Quarterfinals for the fourth time in the past five seasons.
