Field hockey moves up again in coaches poll
Hamilton College inched up one spot to No. 14 in the 2010 National Field Hockey Coaches Association Division III Top 20 poll on Oct. 19.
Hamilton (9-1 overall, 5-0 Liberty League) first appeared in the poll at No. 19 two weeks ago. The Continentals edged New England Small College Athletic Conference opponent Williams College 3-2 in overtime in Hamilton's only game last week.
Hamilton has won seven straight games and is tied for first place in the league standings. The one loss was a 2-1 decision at No. 9 SUNY Cortland back on Sept. 14.
The Continentals have a busy week with three games in six days. Hamilton travels to Nazareth College for a non-league game on Tuesday, Oct. 19. League rival Union College visits Clinton on Saturday, Oct. 23, and No. 7 Skidmore College (5-0 league) travels to Hamilton on Sunday, Oct. 24, for a game that should decide the league's regular season champion.
