UConn leads nation in both polls and stats

  UConn's field hockey team remains ranked No. 1 in the NFHCA poll.

With about a month left in field hockey’s season, only a single Division I team remains undefeated — UConn. Currently ranked No. 1 in the NFHCA Coaches Poll, the Huskies have dominated their season and look to continue their reign as No. 1.

While some teams may have one or two statistical leaders posting serious impact plays for their team, UConn seems to be stacked full of players packed with talent. However, it is not just the individual players posting nation-leading numbers. The team as a whole comes together to lead the nation in multiple categories.
