If you're a regular reader, these weekly athletics calendars usually come out on Monday, but I held it to Wednesday this week because the first USF Athletics event of the 2012-13 season is this afternoon at the Corbett Soccer Stadium.
HOME - Friendly vs. Florida Gulf Coast on Wednesday, August 8, 1:00pm
HOME - Friendly vs. Jacksonville on Friday, August 10, 6:30pm
Go support the Lady Half-Hoops if you're on campus as Denise Schilte-Brown's team looks to bounce back from a hugely disappointing 2011 campaign.
HOME - Friendly vs. Jacksonville on Tuesday, August 14, 7:30pm
The Half-Hoops were oh so close to their first College Cup trip last season, and they enter the 2012 season ranked fifth in the NCSAA preseason poll. This is their first match at home since the epic Round of 16 win over New Mexico.
Training camp at Vero Beach Sports Complex, all week
