Football Announces 2018 Schedule
SALISBURY, N.C. -- Catawba College Director of Athletics, Larry Leckonby, and Head Football Coach, Curtis Walker, have announced the upcoming 2018 schedule. The Indians will face five opponents at home at Shuford Stadium and Kirkland Field, starting with UNC Pembroke on September 15.
The football season kicks off on September 1 with the Catawba Indians traveling to West Georgia. Catawba will face Winston-Salem State on the road the following weekend before its home opener against UNCP.
Catawba tangles with Mars Hill on the road for its conference opener on September 22 before returning home to play four of the next five games at Shuford Stadium. After a league match-up with Carson-Newman, the Indians will host Albany State. It will be just the second meeting of the teams as the only other meeting came in the 2007 NCAA II playoffs with Catawba rolling to a 66-35 win.
On October 13, Catawba travels to Wingate then returns home for its final two regular-season home games against Tusculum and Limestone. The Indians finish the year at Newberry and Lenoir-Rhyne. The September 29 game with Carson-Newman will serve as Family Weekend and Homecoming will be the October 20 match-up with Tusculum.
Kickoff times will be set at a later date.
