MUNCIE, Ind. – The 2012 Ball State field hockey squad was able to get its first taste of competition as it hosted Bellarmine in a scrimmage Sunday afternoon at the BSU Turf Field. The team, consisting of seven newcomers, was able to take what they have been learning in practice and translate that to the field.
“Today was exactly what we needed,” said head coach Beth Maddox. “We had the opportunity to play together and work on some key elements. The girls were able to work out some kinks and that’s so important at this stage [of the season]. We are excited to get to work this week and come back to Muncie with a couple of wins next weekend.”
The team will be on the road this coming weekend, with the season opener at Lehigh on Saturday, Aug. 25 at noon. Lafayette will host Ball State on Sunday at 1 p.m.
