2018 WOMEN'S Volleyball SCHEDULE Bears to play 22 matches in fourth Skyline campaign

After finishing on the bubble of their first Skyline postseason berth, the St. Joseph's College (Brooklyn) women's volleyball will prepare for a their fourth season in the league facing two new opponents and renewing two rivalries against old foes in a 22-match 2018 schedule.

The Bears open the season on September 1 at the College of Staten Island facing the Dolphins and Cairn University—the first meeting against the Highlanders. After the trip across the Verrazano Bridge, the Bears will face borough rival Medgar Evers (Sep. 6) before their home opener on September 11 welcoming CUNYAC finalists John Jay to the Hill Center.

The Bears will then make trips to New Jersey City (Sep. 13) and an extended trip to Vermont to face Green Mountain College and Northern Vermont-Lyndon State on September 16—meeting the former for the first time since 2011 and opening a new series against the latter. A Kings Country battle against Brooklyn College (Sep. 18) concludes an eight-match non-league stretch to tune up for their Skyline Conference opener against sibling rivals SJC Long Island (Sep. 27) at home.

SJC hits the road for the next five matches over two weeks, all in league play, before returning to the comforts of The Hill Center concluding an eight-match home slate with five straight home games. Visiting the Hill Center are non-conference foes York (Sep. 27), Centenary (NJ) (Oct. 16, first meeting since 2008), CCNY (Oct. 23) and Lehman (Oct. 25) and Skyline rivals Mount Saint Mary and Purchase for a home Saturday tri-match on October 20.

The final weekend of the regular season hopes to see the Bears making a final playoff push with a tri-match at the defending regular season champions Farmingdale State along with Yeshiva on October 28.

The top six squads will vie for the Skyline Conference's automatic berth to the NCAA Division III Championship with first round action beginning on October 30.
