As the fall season draws closer, LFSN's Alan York had the chance to touch base with Liberty Field Hockey Head Coach Nikki Parsley-Blocker to recap the spring, discuss the summer months and preview the fall season.
Liberty, entering its third season in the BIG EAST Conference, will open its regular-season schedule at James Madison on Aug. 24. The Lady Flames' first home contest will be on Sept. 11 versus the Longwood Lancers.
Liberty's BIG EAST opener will be on its home turf on Sept. 14 against Temple. Liberty will serve as the host site for the 2018 BIG EAST Field Hockey Championship, Nov. 2 and 4 at the Liberty Field Hockey Field.
The team returns 17 players from last year's squad that finished as the runner-up in the conference, led by second team All-American and first team All-BIG EAST selection Agueda Moroni. Fellow 2017 All-BIG EAST selections Jill Bolton (first team), Ashley Dykema (first team) and Allison Schaefer (second team) also return for the Lady Flames.
