The DII field hockey championship is quickly approaching. Before the six-team bracket is announced on Monday, Nov. 11, there are some conference championships to be played. Here's where you can find the schedule and champions for each of the conference tournaments.
DII field hockey championship: The road to Millersville
The 2019 DII field hockey championship will take place at Biemesderfer Stadium in Millersville, Pennsylvania. Six teams from the Atlantic and East regions — three apiece — will be selected on Nov. 11 to fill out the bracket.
The two regions are broken down by conference. The Atlantic region consists of schools in the Conference Carolinas, Pennsylvania State Athletic Conference, South Atlantic Conference and the three DII Independents. The East region is made up of the 15 schools in the Northeast-10.
The third and final regional rankings are released on Tuesday, Nov. 5, prior to the conference tournaments. West Chester, which locked up the PSAC regular-season title in late October, is the current No. 1 team in the country.
