2020 Lehigh U Soccer Season is Happening in Spring 2021!

Awesome news came out last week as the Patriot League announced its plan to play 2020 Fall Sports in the Spring of 2021. Below is the soccer potion of the announcement:

Army West Point, Boston University, Colgate, Holy Cross and Lafayette will play in the North Division. American, Bucknell, Lehigh, Loyola Maryland and Navy will play in the South Division. Teams will play each divisional opponent at least once. A minimum of six League games will be played by each team. The League schedule is set to begin on Saturday, Feb. 27, and conclude on Saturday, April 10. The championship dates are still to be determined.

Needless to say both coaches were excited and provided the following quotes to BFF:

Lehigh University Men's Head Soccer Coach Dean Koski:

"It's exciting to anticipate a return to practices and a competitive Patriot League schedule for the spring and hopefully a postseason run. Incredibly, we haven't played a competitive match since our NCAA tournament appearance in November 2019 - 14 months ago! So all of us, coaches, players and fans are excited to have a season to look forward to this spring and we can't wait for our first practice on February 1st!”

Lehigh University Women's Head Soccer Coach Eric Lambinus

“I am extremely grateful to the work being done by our Lehigh Athletic Department and the Patriot League to provide our student-athletes an opportunity to play the sport they love and compete again. It’s been over 14 months since our last competition so I know are team is excited to get back on the field. The announcement by Lehigh and the League, and the successful start to our winter sports, provides us hope that we can get back on the field. This excitement is still tempered with the knowledge that we have plenty of work yet to do in order to play our first game on March 6th.”:

Personally I am especially excited as well as the new “spring” schedule will allow me to get out an cover these teams more than usual. As you might imagine the typical hectic fall makes it tough sometimes! But most of all I am excited for the student athletes...especially the seniors…so cool they get the season they have been working so hard for their entire lives.

Good luck Mountain Hawks!
