Though athletic director Patrick Nero tweeted a list of non-conference opponents the Colonials will face next season, the athletic department is taking a new approach to releasing the dates of GW’s upcoming non-Atlantic 10 matches: a piece-by-piece reveal that will publish one game a day from now until July 15 on GWSports.com

The first competition that was announced was the exhibition match against Catholic University Nov. 3. From there, it was revealed the Colonials will host Youngstown State Nov. 10 and head to Boston University Nov. 17.

Today’s announced game was the Nov. 21 trip to Notre Dame, one that will be a first-ever matchup between the two programs.

As the schedule takes shape, fans can also watch head coach Mike Lonergan break down each game in videos on the athletic department’s website.

We’ll be tweeting the released dates as they’re made available at @HatchetSports.
