Ohio State, 3 Others, Land In NFHCA Poll

The Big Ten is no stranger to having itself all over the national field hockey poll. The 2011 season should be no exception — at least according to the NFHCA Preseason Poll. Four Big Ten teams land in the initial poll, led by No. 6 Ohio State.

Penn State and Ohio State both fall in the top 10, at No. 8 and 9, respectively, while Michigan State, No. 13, rounds out the Big Ten field. Northwestern, Iowa and Indiana are receiving votes.

Here’s a rankings story from OhioStateBuckeyes.com:

“The Ohio State field hockey team is No. 6 in the Kookaburra/NFHCA Division I Preseason Poll, released Tuesday by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association. Maryland enters the year ranked No. 1 with 32 first-place votes after winning the national title last season.

All seven Big Ten programs received votes in the 2011 preseason standings with the Buckeyes leading the way. Three other Big Ten teams cracked the Top 20: Penn State (8), Michigan (9) and Michigan State (13). Northwestern, Iowa and Indiana also received votes.”
