Carver A&T returns at No. 19; Westminster climbs six spots to No. 10


With the state field hockey playoff schedules set and the private school tournaments soon to be announced, we are down to the wire in the 2018 field hockey season.

The VSN Week 7 Field Hockey Top 20 reflects little change at the top of the poll as our top nine teams are exactly where they were last week. One team that made a big jump was Westminster, which climbed six spots to reach the Top 10 at No. 10.

Carver A&T returned this week at No. 19 and appearing in the poll for the first time this fall is No. 20 Elkton, the winner of the UCBAC’s Susquehanna Division.
