Iowa field hockey ranked No. 12


SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The National Field Hockey Coaches Association released its Division I preseason poll Tuesday.

Iowa’s field-hockey team snagged the 12th spot in the rankings with 347 points.

Iowa is familiar with being the 12th-ranked team in the country; the squad finished its season a year ago at the same spot.

Head coach Tracey Griesbaum was excited when she heard the news, but she quickly said it wasn’t something to think much of or dwell on.

“I like the poll because it gets everyone excited,” she said. “Being No. 12, I’m not very surprised. I think that’s where we should be. But it’s all on paper anyways.”

Ten of Iowa’s opponents during the regular season made the preseason list of top-25 teams. Four of those opponents were also Big Ten opponents.

Penn State was listed No. 9, defending conference champions Michigan came in at No. 10, Ohio State made the list as the No. 15 team, and Northwestern was No. 20.
