The Iowa field-hockey team moved up in the National Field Hockey Coaches Association’s Week 1 poll released Tuesday. Head coach Tracey Griesbaum’s squad was ranked No. 13 in the preseason polls and now holds the No. 8 spot in the country.

The Hawkeyes are 3-1 and own the highest ranking out of any Big Ten team. Also, the Hawks have allowed the fewest goals (4) in the conference.

Michigan (1-3) was ranked No. 8 in the preseason poll but fell out of the top 20 after going 0-2 in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge last weekend.

Also in the poll for the Big Ten are No. 12 Northwestern (3-1) and Penn State (1-3), which is tied for the No. 13 spot with Albany.

Next on the schedule for the Hawkeyes is a matchup with Central Michigan (2-2) at 3 p.m. Friday, followed by a meeting with No. 10 Stanford (3-1) at 1 p.m. Sept. 15. Both games will be held at Grant Field.
