The team will leave for Barcelona on Friday to spend 10 days in Spain over spring break. The first game of the trip will be on Tuesday, March 6 against either Gramanet or Terrassa of the Spanish Third Division. The Hoyas will follow that up with a friendly against Barcelona's Europa out of the Third Division on March 8.
