DURHAM, N.C. – The Duke field hockey team recently released its spring schedule, as the Blue Devils will look to build on their 2008 appearance in the NCAA Championships second round with some off-season tune-ups.


The squad will open spring play with the Duke Spring Tournament on Mar. 21, immediately following spring break.


The Blue Devils will then tackle Northeastern Mar. 28, followed by a road trip to Old Dominion Apr. 4. Duke will make the short trip over to face ACC rivals North Carolina on Apr. 15, before returning home to host the Duke Tournament Apr. 18 and the program’s annual alumni game the following day, Apr. 19.


The 2008 field hockey team reached the second round and posted an overall record of 15-6, with the trip to the post-season marking its 10th overall and sixth Elite Eight in the last seven seasons. The Blue Devils will lose three seniors in Laura Suchoski, Marian Dickinson, and Ashley Pultorak.
