2023 University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo Men’s Soccer schedule
Following a season-opening exhibition match set for Aug. 23 against Multnomah University, the Vulcans will hop over to O’ahu for two contests before returning for their first official home game against San Francisco State on Sept. 10.
Highlighting the non-conference slate will be a Sept. 16 matchup in Carson, California against Estrin’s alma mater CSU Dominguez Hills. The Toros finished last season as California Collegiate Athletic Association runner-up and made a short post-season run to the National Collegiate Athletic Association Super Regional 4 Third Round.
The Vulcans will kick-off the Pacific West Conference season with a trip to northern California marked by a Sept. 28 matchup against defending co-champ Dominican. Biola was the PacWest’s other co-champion last fall and will make the trip to the Big Island on Oct. 16.
The PacWest schedule will also feature conference newcomer Westmont College, who went 9-5-2 in National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics play last season with a finish in the Golden Sun Athletic Conference Tournament.
Hawai’i Hilo will look to build on an eighth-place finish in 2022 after going 3-5-2 in PacWest play with a 4-8-4 overall finish. The Vulcans will have 15 returnees from a season ago in addition to a new group of incoming players to be announced shortly.
