Spartan sports are back in action this weekend with women’s soccer, volleyball and men’s soccer competing at home.

Women’s soccer kicks off the 2018-19 athletics season with its home opener against Gardner-Webb on Friday, Aug. 17, at 7 p.m. Students are invited to a free pre-game tailgate at 6 p.m. at UNCG Soccer Stadium as part of Rawkin’ Welcome Week.
