Northeast Conference play starts early in 2012, with a home game against Bryant on February 18. Central hosts NEC games against Long Island (3/30), Wagner (4/1), Robert Morris (4/13) and St. Francis (PA) (4/15) this season.
The Blue Devils will go on the road to NEC foes Monmouth (4/5) and Mount St. Mary's (4/7), before ending the regular season with games at Quinnipiac (4/20) and Sacred Heart (4/22).
In her first season, Coach Kelly Nangle has the Blue Devils looking forward to a challenging 2012 campaign.
"We are very excited about our 2012 schedule," Nangle Said. "I believe we have created a more competitive non-conference schedule that will help prepare our team for our NEC opponents this season."
