Field hockey climbs in national rankings
Hamilton College climbed four spots in the 2010 National Field Hockey Coaches Association Division III Top 20 poll on Oct. 12.
Nationally ranked No. 15 Hamilton (8-1 overall, 5-0 Liberty) debuted at No. 19 in last week's poll. The Continentals defeated then-No. 15 William Smith College 3-2 in overtime, and the University of Rochester 4-2 on the road in league play last week.
Hamilton has won six straight games and is tied for first place in the Liberty League standings. The Continentals' loss was a 2-1 decision at No. 8 SUNY Cortland back on Sept. 14.
Hamilton hosts Williams College in non-league action on Wednesday, Oct. 13. If the Continentals win, they will have a 9-1 record for the first time in program history.
