Amherst College earns more support from Division III college coaches in week eight poll: NFHCA

Most Division III college field hockey teams received a similar vote to last week’s poll with Amherst College getting a few more cast in its favor in week eight, according to the National Field Hockey Coaches Association.


The poll, sponsored by Penn Monto, hasn’t seen a lot of change to it in recent weeks. As tournament time starts churning out champions and seedings, the following teams are more than likely to win a few contests.


“The NFHCA Division III National Coaches Poll is voted on by NFHCA member coaches and has no bearing on selection to the 2023 NCAA Division III Field Hockey Championship,” according to the association. “After two weeks of regular season competition, eligible teams must maintain a record of .500 or above to be eligible for ranking each week.”
