CARROLLTON, Ga. – After a successful Homecoming week in the City of Dreams, prepare yourself for another busy week as we have three teams playing at home this week.
This week the Wolves volleyball team will return to action inside The Coliseum on Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday. These matches will be the first home matches of the year, so make sure to come out and support. On Tuesday, West Georgia will play GSC conference foe University of North Alabama at 6 p.m. Friday Lee University will be in town with first serve taking place at 6 p.m. and Saturday the Wolves will play Christian Brothers at 10 a.m. before heading back on the road. Tickets for the home matches are $5 a ticket, free for students with a UWG ID. Faculty and staff are also free with a valid UWG ID, and are given one complementary ticket.
After a four match road trip for the Wolves, the team returns home for two matches over the weekend. Coming off a win at Alabama-Huntsville last Sunday West Georgia will be looking to build on the win streak as they host Lee University at University Soccer Field at 5 p.m. On Sunday, Shorter University will be coming into the City of Dreams to face off in the battle of the two Georgia GSC teams.
After continuing our unbeaten run at home, West Georgia will look to extend the streak to four against North Alabama in GSC action. Quarterback Willie Candler will look to replicate his game against Albany State, which earned him GSC honors as the Offensive Player of the Week. Kickoff for Saturday's game is set for 2 p.m. in University Stadium. Tickets are $25 at the gate, but fans who are able to purchase tickets at the UWG Athletics Online Ticket Portal by Thursday at 5 p.m. will receive a $7 discount and may pick up your ticket at the Will Call window on gameday or the "print-at-home" feature. Fans may continue to enjoy the "print-at-home" feature until 11:30 a.m. on gameday and still receive the $7 discount.
With a larger crowd expected for the homecoming game, game management officials have determined a 9 a.m. start time for the UWG Athletics Complex Gates to open. For any group of 25 or more that is not an official university department or registered student organization, the contact to secure a tailgating spot is Seth Cowart (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Carolyn Maddox (email@example.com) in Auxiliary Services.
