Shenandoah University women's basketball coach Michelle Guyant-Holloway announced her 2012-13 schedule Wednesday morning.
The Hornets, preparing to begin their first season in the Old Dominion Athletic Conference, will have at least 11 home games in 2012-13.
Eight of those 11 home games will be ODAC contests. Like the ODAC men, the ODAC women play a 16-game league slate that features five home-and-home series, three single away games and three single home games.
The Shenandoah women will play Virginia Wesleyan, Bridgewater, Randolph, Randolph-Macon and Washington & Lee in home-and-home contests in 2012-13.
The home opener, on Nov. 28 against Virginia Wesleyan, is also the inaugural ODAC contest in program history.
The final game of the regular season, at W&L on Feb. 16, is a doubleheader with the Hornet men.
Emory & Henry, Hollins and Lynchburg will visit Winchester for the lone ODAC matchup meeting of the season with SU while Guyant-Holloway's club will make non-return trips to Guilford, Eastern Mennonite and Roanoke.
Shenandoah will host three non-league opponents: Mary Baldwin, Marymount and Patrick Henry, in non-league contests.
Non-league games with Wilkes, Mary Washington, Lebanon Valley and Frostburg State, as well as participation in the Dickinson Tournament, rounds out the schedule.
"We have a great first ODAC schedule," Guyant-Holloway said in a news release. "I think our fans are going to enjoy these new opponents coming into Shingleton Gymnasium and I look forward to competing with these schools."
