Maryland women’s field hockey officially has a schedule of games for this season after Tuesday’s announcement from the Big Ten.

After having its season postponed through the fall and winter, Maryland will open its conference exclusive season with four consecutive games in Virginia Beach, Virginia. The Terps face off against Michigan State, Northwestern, and Ohio State from the weekend of February 26 through March 7.

Following an away weekend against Penn State on March 12 and 14, The Terps will return home for back-to-back games against Indiana on March 19 and 21. A two-game trip to Iowa will be followed by four straight home games against Michigan and Rutgers between April 9 and April 17.

The postseason will kick off on April 21 with the Big Ten Tournament, hosted by Iowa. The twelve-team NCAA Tournament pool will begin April 30, with the semifinals and National Championship being hosted by North Carolina from May 7-9.

Maryland will turn to a younger core of players for the 2021 season, led by returning high output goalscorers Bibi Donraadt and Emma DeBerdine. After finishing as runner-up in the 2018 and 2017 National Championships, the Terps will look to finish the season on top for the first time since 2011.
