59 of which have no shot at winning the NCAAs. I have two daughters who


play and I know the recruiting fairly well. All the top girls go to the same 10-15 schools, which also pull players from Europe as well. The game is still fairly regional with the epicenter being in Pennsylvania. The top schools are generally all ACC, B1G and Ivy.

The top 10 recruits (Max Field Hockey rankings) for the class of 2022 are going to the following schools:

UVA - 3
Duke - 3
UNC - 2
Louisville
Princeton

10 girls going to just 5 schools and UVA at the top. Go out further for the top 50 girls and you have:

Duke - 6
UVA - 5
Princeton - 4
UNC - 3
OSU - 3
Louisville - 2
Penn - 2
Indiana - 2
Wake - 2
Syracuse - 2
Harvard - 2
UConn - 2

That's 35 of the top 50 players going to just 12 schools. And the year before that was the same. And before that the same. My point being, the FH world is still small but like LAX is growing. Right now, UVA is still near the top and our recruiting (as you can see above) is at the top. Whether Madison (similar to Swanson for WSOC) can get the job done or not remains to be seen, but we are a top program. I've said it before but I would love to see WSOC and FH breakthrough and win us Natties.
