The UConn field hockey team is one of the best in the nation and a perennial contender. Head coach Nancy Stevens is the winningest Division I Field Hockey coach in history, and she has led the Huskies to three national championships in her 28-year tenure at UConn, the most recent being in 2017.
“What gives us value is that we think a lot alike. We value the student athlete experience, it’s very player-centric. We get the players involved in the decision-making because we are here to make them shine,” Stevens says. “It is not at all coach-centric here at the University of Connecticut Field Hockey. Trusting our student athletes and valuing the same things has been what has made our staff so successful.”
The No. 5 UConn field hockey team will travel to Washington, D.C to take on Big East opponent Georgetown Friday at 2 p.m. and American University Sunday at 1 p.m. These will be the final two regular season games for the Huskies (14-3, 6-0 Big East), with the Big East Tournament semifinals set to take place on Nov. 2.
