Gaels Open 2011 Campaign In Charlotte Saturday
The Iona Gaels begin defense of their MAAC Championship Saturday morning in Charlotte, NC. I post a photo of the 2010 team because it's basically the same team this year. The Gaels return the whole starting lineup that was good enough to bring a championship to New Rochelle. Iona is the first MAAC team to begin this season, and will face a challenging group of teams. Host Charlotte is a top squad team in the Atlantic 10; Virginia Tech is an ACC school that made it to that conference's championship game in 2010; Wilmington plays in the Colonial Conference with teams like Hofstra. This is a round robin, and there will be a championship/consolation game on Sunday.
