Iona will host a four team exhibition on Feb. 15 as the Gaels play host to Binghamton, Columbia and Adelphi.

Iona will then travel to New Britain, CT to take on the Blue Devils of Central Connecticut State on Feb. 26.

The Maroon and Gold host its first home game at Mazella Field on Mar. 1 when it welcomes the University of Massachusetts in an afternoon contest. The Minutewomen earned a ranking of 13th in the IWLCA Preseason Poll. Iona continues play at home when it welcomes in New Hampshire on Mar. 10. Six days later, the early season road slate continues as the Gaels travel to the midwest to take on Cincinatti Mar. 16.
