Rutgers field hockey team closed out its regular season with a 4-2 loss against No. 3 Maryland in College Park this weekend. The Scarlet Knights (9-8, 2-6) will pick right back up where they left off in the postseason as the team returns to College Park on Thursday for a rematch against the Terrapins (15-3, 7-1) in the first round of the Big Ten Tournament. Rutgers put forth a strong performance in the opening frame, with a goal from senior forward Rachel Yaney putting the Scarlet Knights up 1-0.
The Rutgers field hockey team will play its final regular season game of the season against the No. 3 team in the country on its road trip down to Maryland this weekend.
The Rutgers field hockey team had an extended hand reaching out, but found nothing to grasp onto. With their rigorous 2015 season coming to a close, the Scarlet Knights rounded out this fall with a 7-11 overall record and an 0-8 mark in conference play.
The team did not go quietly. Ending its 2015 season with back-to-back matchups against Big Ten foe Indiana and No. 9 Louisville, the Rutgers field hockey team returns to the Banks 0-2 after being shutout through two hard fought road battles out west.
Now is the time to give all or nothing. The Rutgers field hockey team will wrap up its 2015 season this weekend in a road trip out west to take on conference foe Indiana before going head-to-head with No. 9 Louisville.
Some journeys are fatefully intertwined. This one starts in the fall of 2011 when Jenn Staab first took the field for the Rutgers field hockey team in her debut season as a Scarlet Knight.
No moment on the field can be taken for granted. With highly commoditized opportunities to continue pursuing an athletic career after high school, there is no room for complacency — athletes must continuously fight to take advantage of every fleeting moment they have to make a difference.
Sometimes, it’s not the way you start, but the way you finish. Looking to round out a strong finish to the season, the Rutgers field hockey team takes its first single-game road trip of the year down to the nation’s capital this weekend.
When most athletes don their team’s jersey and come out to compete, they are playing for their perpetual love for the sport.
Many people hope to leave the places they go better than how they found it. As the Rutgers field hockey seniors walked off the field at Bauer Track/Field Hockey Complex after the final home game of the regular season, recollection of the turbulent change and emerging progressions during their time shared in Piscataway laid bare before them.
