Public High Schools across the country are heading to play-offs this week! (Private schools continue regular season play through Nov.) In Pennsylvania league semi finals are today with the finals set for Thursday Oct. 16th. Emmaus (17-0) looks to conquer the LVC title as Penn Manor (16-0-1) has its sights set on the Lancaster-Lebanon crown.
Colorado begins its State play-offs on Thursday, Oct 16th, followed by NY on Oct. 23, CT on Oct 24th, and NJ on Halloween Oct. 31st.
Between Leagues and Districts Pennsylvania's Emmaus will take on New Jersey's Eastern in a classic interstate battle. The teams offer to prepare each other for the tougher battles they will face in their respective states without the elimination factor. A great idea in my opinion, what do you think? Fair? Smart? Unnecessary?
We have the most exciting month of High School Field Hockey approaching us, be sure to check back as teams battle it out to stay alive for another round.
The new Collegiate rankings were released this morning with Syracuse claiming the #1 spot with a perfect record thus far 14-0. Maryland, Wake Forest, Michigan State and Duke round out the top 5, check here for the complete rankings http://nfhca.org/.
Good Luck to all the teams competing in post season play!!
All the best,
