The first Division III class in history met last night inside Merner Gym as VP for Athletics Bob Reasso addressed all the student-athletes in preparation for the opening of the 2017-18 season. The gym bleachers were full as 21 teams packed the facility.
The Falcons are embarking on a new tradition as this year marks the programs first in the Division III era. Pfeiffer will compete in the USA South Athletic Conference and the first Division III game in program history will take place on September 1st when the men's soccer team takes on Lynchburg at 7 p.m.
Reasso, along with Pfeiffer President Dr. Colleen Keith, spoke to the 380 student-athletes and outlined the expectations for the upcoming season. All athletes were dressed in the 2017-18 Falcon Alert t-shirt by New Balance and each coach was in attendance.
Finally, the slogan for the upcoming season was announced. "Division III, the tradition starts with me."
