Fairfield Friday Kicks Off Action-Packed Home Weekend for the Stags

Fairfield Volleyball

Field Hockey, Volleyball and Women’s Soccer All in Action on Campus

The first Fairfield Friday of the 2018-19 academic year also marks the beginning of the first major home weekend for the Fairfield Stags. Three varsity Athletics programs will be in action on campus, with a total of six home games on the docket.

The weekend begins at University Field at 4:30 p.m. on Friday when Fairfield field hockey hosts visiting Holy Cross. The defending MAAC Champions are 3-1 on the season after most recently posting a 2-0 victory at Temple this past Sunday. Zoe Rosen ’21 made eight saves in the shutout win to earn MAAC Defensive Player of the Week honors.

George Bisacca Court at Alumni Hall will be busy all weekend long for the Fairfield Volleyball Invitational. Action begins at noon of Friday with the host Stags taking the court for the first time on Friday evening at 7 p.m. against Michigan State. Fairfield last met the Spartans in the 2016 NCAA Championship first round, following the second of the Stags’ three consecutive MAAC Championship titles. Friday night’s match will be a 'Connect' event for all FYE students. Eligible students must swipe their StagCard upon entry to be credited for attending the match and supporting the Stags.

The Stags will also be in action twice on Saturday, challenging Harvard and Northeastern at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m., respectively.

Rounding out the weekend slate are a pair of matches on Lessing Field for Fairfield women’s soccer. The Stags, who enter the weekend with a 3-2 record, host Lafayette on Friday at 7 p.m. and Delaware State on Sunday at 3 p.m. Tickets for both matches are on sale now at FairfieldStags.com/TIX.

Admission is free (with a StagCard) for Fairfield students, faculty, and staff for all regular season home games.
