Men’s Soccer Releases 2003 Schedule 2/14/03
Commodores Set to Play Another Difficult Schedule

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - The Vanderbilt men’s soccer team will compete in 19 regular-season games in 2003, nine of which will be held at the Vanderbilt Soccer Complex. Head coach Tim McClements will also have his squad competing in three tournaments early on in the season.

The Commodores will begin the season with a trip to Evanston, Ill. to take part in the Northwestern Tournament on August 30-31. Vanderbilt will take on host Northwestern on 2 p.m. Saturday, and then follow that contest up with a game against DePaul at 12 p.m. Sunday. This will be first meeting against both of these teams for the Commodores.

McClements’ squad will then hit the road the following weekend to take on Vermont and New Hampshire in the Vermont Tournament in Burlington, Vt. Just like the two teams in the Northwestern Tournament, Vanderbilt will be taking on Vermont and New Hampshire for the first time.

The final tournament the Commodores will participate in is the annual Vanderbilt/Puma Soccer Classic, which will be held September 19 and 21 at the Soccer Complex. Along with the Commodores, Davidson, College of Charleston and Missouri Valley Conference rival Western Kentucky will compete in the tournament. Vanderbilt will take on Davidson on Friday the 19th and College of Charleston on Sunday the 21st. Vanderbilt has taken on Davidson twice, while this will be its first meeting against the College of Charleston.

The Commodores’ home schedule also includes games with local foes Lipscomb and Belmont, along with East Carolina and MVC opponents Drake, Tulsa, Southern Methodist and defending MVC champion and College Cup Final Four participant Creighton.

Vanderbilt will hit the road to take on Wright State and conference opponents Bradley, Eastern Illinois, Western Kentucky and Evansville.
