Red Hawks release 2019-20 women’s basketball schedule

HICKORY, N.C. — The Catawba Valley Community College women's basketball team has released its upcoming 2019-20 schedule.

"I'm looking forward to another successful year and with 13 teams in the Region X, including our team, it's very competitive" said Catawba Valley women's basketball head coach Tisha England. "It doesn't give us much room for mistakes, but we are challenged every year."

The Red Hawks open their preseason on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 18-19 at the JUCO Jamboree in Chicago, Ill. This is the second-straight season that CVCC women's basketball team has participated in the event, which features more than 64 teams from across the country.

Catawba Valley will also host its own preseason Red Hawks Jamboree on Saturday, Oct. 26.

The Red Hawks officially kick off their 2019-20 regular season on Sunday, Nov. 10 at home against Converse College JV team. It marks the first of five games during the opening month — all of which are in Hickory at the Tarlton Complex.

CVCC renews its rivalry with cross-town foe Caldwell CC&TI on Tuesday, Nov. 26. The Cobras are one of two NJCAA Division I opponents, including Walters State, that the Red Hawks will face this season.

"Playing top NJCAA Division I Walters State and Caldwell as well as Converse JV, we will be put to the test quickly," England said. "I encourage everyone to come out and support the Red Hawks, and I want to thank our faithful fans and family who pray and support us daily. We look forward to seeing everyone at the Tarlton Complex."

The Catawba Valley women's basketball team starts Region 10 play on Saturday, Nov. 16 at home against Fayetteville Tech — the first of 22 conference games to be played this season.

New to the schedule this season for the Red Hawks will be Southwest Virginia Community College — the newest addition to Region 10. The Red Hawks and Flying Eagles face off in Hickory on Tuesday, Jan. 28 and in Richlands, Va. on Tuesday, Feb. 11.

Region 10 tournament play starts on March 5, and the event is being held at Patrick Henry Community College in Martinsville, Va.
