WASHINGTON - After a disappointing 2013 season which saw their streak of five consecutive Landmark Conference championships stopped, the Cardinals are excited to begin this season and are poised to compete for a sixth conference crown.
Catholic opens up Tuesday, February 28 when they travel to Frostburg State in a rematch of last year's season opener when CUA won 15-7. Tomorrow night's game will mark the first of two road contests to start the year as the Cardinals will have an early test when they travel to the defending Nation Champion, Salisbury on Saturday, March 1.
The Cardinals will face two other preseason top-10 teams this season starting with No. 4 SUNY Cortland on March 15 in a neutral site game on Long Island and then hosting No. 6 Gettysburg on April 16. In her eight season at the helm, head coach Meghan McDonogh hopes that the challenging schedule will help prepare the young squad for the Landmark competition.
"We are looking forward to our challenging schedule including two of last year's final four teams as we see each game as an opportunity to improve ourselves and to play with and against the best teams in Division III" said McDonogh.
