The Razorbacks today announced their 2016-17 schedule for the program’s Division III American Collegiate Hockey Association team. The schedule features 14 weekend games at The Jones Center for Families in Springdale.
Coming off a twenty-eight win season that featured a Pacific Regional appearance, the 2016-17 Division III Razorbacks look for a return to the National Tournament in this, a challenging 35 game regular season slate. The regular season opens with a pair of conference games against SEC rival, Ole Miss, on Sept. 9 & 10 at the Jones Center.
The Razorbacks continue their eighth campaign in the Southeastern Collegiate Hockey Conference on the road against Georgia in October—only the program’s second trip to Athens. That same month, the Hogs tangle with Kansas on October 10 and, in doing so, host “Pink the Rink” to raise awareness for breast cancer.
Highlights throughout the remainder of the season include a trip to Lincoln for a pair of games against Nebraska, a first-ever trip to Marietta, Georgia, for two games against Kennesaw State, and a return to the Clash of the Corn Tournament in Sioux City, Iowa, in mid-November. The Hogs won the Clash of the Corn during the 2014-15 season.
The second semester kicks off on January 13 with a two game swing through Lebanon, Illinois, to take on McKendree University. The post-season begins with the SEC playoffs in Nashville on Feb. 10, 11, & 12 followed by ACHA Regionals the following weekend.
Single game tickets for the 2016-17 regular season can be purchased at the Jones Center. Please visit arhockey.westernchl.com for further information about the team.
