Head Coach Connor Brown expressed excitement when discussing the schedule, “We’re all very excited for spring to get here and more importantly the regular season. We had a few bumps in the road during the fall season but the entire program is anxious to get back on the field again and continue to compete.” The Catamounts have three NCAA programs scheduled for the 2017 season. “I think these games will help us grow as a program and help the girls grow as young adults as well. If our athletes want to play at a higher level, then it’s in our duty as a coaching staff to expose them to that culture and prepare them for their career after Potomac State”, mentioned Brown.
