DAHLONEGA, GA – The North Georgia women's soccer team will look to make it to back-to-back NCAA Tournaments, as they release their 2012 season schedule.

The schedule features an even nine home games and nine road games. North Georgia went a perfect 9-0-1 in Dahlonega last season and will look to do the same in 2012.

The Lady Saints had a terrific 2011 season, as they finished 16-3-1, including a victory in the NCAA Tournament over Wingate.

A road game against Alabama-Huntsville (Aug 30) begins the new campaign for head coach Chris Adams, followed by back-to-back matches at home against Mount Olive (Sep 1) and Belmont Abbey (Sep 3).

North Georgia defeated all three teams last season by a combined score of 8-2.

Pensacola, Florida, will be the next destination for the Lady Saints, as they take part in the West Florida Tournament. While there they will faceoff against Florida Southern (Sep 7) and Rollins (Sep 9), two members from the Sunshine State Conferences.

A trip to Carson-Newman on September 12 is followed by three straight home games for North Georgia. Young Harris (Sep 15) and Georgia College (Sep 22) begin the daunting Peach Belt Conference slate in 2012, while Pfeiffer (Sep 25) will be the final nonconference game of the season.

A visit to the 2011 PBC Champions in Savannah, Georgia, is scheduled for September 29. The Lady Saints finished in a 1-1 draw against Armstrong last season at home.

UNC Pembroke (Oct 13), Flagler (Oct 20) and Lander (Oct 24) will all be on the road.
