Maryland field hockey released its schedule for the upcoming 2022 season Thursday afternoon.
The 2021 national semifinalists will have one of the toughest schedules in the nation, facing 11 opponents who finished last season ranked in the final Penn Monto/NFHCA Division I Coaches poll, including the top four ranked teams in the nation.
“Scheduling the top teams every year inspires everyone, the players, families, fans and alumni love good hockey,” longtime head coach Missy Meharg said in a release.
The Terps will open the season on Aug. 26 at home against Drexel in pursuit of their ninth national championship.
Marked games on the calendar include a road affair against reigning national champion Northwestern on Oct. 2 and a home matchup against Rutgers on Oct. 14.
Meharg’s crew will conclude its regular season at UConn on Oct. 28, which is also where this year’s Final Four will take place.
