Johns Hopkins to host NCAA Field Hockey Regional this weekend

On the heels of winning its second straight Centennial Conference Championship, the sixth-ranked Johns Hopkins field hockey team will host the second and third rounds of the 2019 NCAA Tournament at Homewood Field this weekend. The Blue Jays are one of just four schools to host the second and third rounds.

Hopkins, which earned a first-round bye, will take on the winner of Worcester State (18-4) and 11th-ranked Messiah (16-4) at 11 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 16. Fourth-ranked Tufts (14-4) will take on the winner of Rochester (14-8) and Denison (16-3) in the other half of the Baltimore pod at 2 p.m. The winners will square off at 1 p.m. on Homewood Field on Sunday, Nov. 17. The weekend could feature two teams that Hopkins faced in last year's NCAA Tournament—Messiah and Tufts. JHU beat host Messiah, 3-2, and then fell to Tufts, 4-1, in the national semifinals.
