Liberty will be hosting the 2018 BIG EAST Field Hockey Championship in November.

Liberty will serve as the host site for the 2018 BIG EAST Field Hockey Championship for the first time, this fall.

The BIG EAST Conference office released its 2018-19 Olympic sports championship schedule this week, and Liberty is one of four first-time hosts. The Liberty Field Hockey Field will feature the semifinals and finals of the championship on Nov. 2 and 4.

The Lady Flames, entering their third year in the BIG EAST as an affiliate member, finished runner-up at the conference tournament (hosted by Temple in 2016, hosted by Providence in 2017) in each of their first two seasons. 

The UConn Huskies have captured the last six BIG EAST crowns and three of the last five national championships. The conference featured three of the top 25 teams in the final 2017 NCAA Field Hockey RPI – No. 1 UConn, No. 21 Liberty and No. 25 Old Dominion.  

The Lady Flames have been well-represented in the BIG EAST annual awards with nine all-conference selections, one BIG EAST Freshman of the Year, one BIG EAST Co-Defensive Player of the Year and one BIG EAST Scholar-Athlete Sport Excellence Award recipient in two years.
