The Gallaudet University women’s soccer team kicks off its 2010 season this weekend. The Bison are preparing to make their debut in the North Eastern Athletic Conference.

The team had a breakout season in 2009, with six wins, all at home, and a fairly young team. Sunday's match is a non-conference game against Washington Adventist University's NCAA Division II team, The Shock.

The Bison home opener will be Friday, September 10th, at Hotchkiss Field, against the College of Notre Dame Maryland. And on September 16th, the Bison will make their North Eastern Athletic Conference debut at Mary Baldwin College.

The Bison have their hopes set on making the Conference's Top Six come November, so they can compete in the NEAC postseason tournament.
