• The 2013 season marks Loyola’s inaugural season as a member of the Patriot League. 
• Saturday, Sept. 21 was one for the record books.  Loyola women’s soccer was the first program in Greyhound history to compete in a conference game as a member of the Patriot League. Holy Cross escaped Ridley Athletic Complex with a 1-0 victory, marking the first victory between the two teams.
