In the Penn Monto/NFHCA Division I National Coaches preseason poll, Maryland field hockey was ranked as the No. 4 team in the nation after losing in the national semifinals last season.
The squad finished the regular season last year as the No. 5 team in the country, only topped by other Big Ten opponents: Iowa, Rutgers, Michigan and eventual national champion Northwestern.
In an attempt to go further than they did a year before, the team returns its top-three point scorers from last season. Graduate midfielder Bibi Donraadt, sophomore forward Hope Rose and senior midfielder Emma DeBerdine all are back for the 2022 season.
The Terps have aspirations of winning a national championship this season, which starts against Drexel this Friday.
