Key Games

2/8 @  Jacksonville

The Catamounts renew their tradition of traveling south and facing a SoCon opponent to open the season. They will face Dolphins squad that looks to make noise in the SoCon once again this year. This will be Vermont’s third all-time meeting with Jacksonville and first meeting since 2018. The prior two have split their two prior meetings. 

3/14 vs UMBC

Vermont opens up conference play against the UMBC Retrievers in a rematch of the 2019 America East championship game as Vermont looks to avenge that loss. Vermont’s last win over UMBC was in 2017. 

4/5 @ Albany 

While Vermont won last year’s regular season and conference tournament matchups against Albany, this game has been one to circle in the America East over the past few seasons with the rise of both programs. 

4/24 vs Penn (New Canaan HS, Conn.) 

Vermont ends the season against the Penn Quakers who won the Ivy League tournament last season and advanced to the NCAA quarterfinals. As Vermont’s biggest non-conference game, Vermont looks to take down the Quakers and avenge a 12-10 loss last season.
