Field Hockey Bears to Knock off Rust with Spring Season Debut
Head coach Dawn Callahan will get an early glimpse at next season's Bears, as the field hockey team begins its spring exhibition season this Friday, March 19th, against Saint Louis, in Springfield.
Callahan and crew will use the spring season as a time for the young team to gel after losing three key seniors, including all-MAC performers Alyssa Hile and Melissa Lantz.
In addition to two games against in-state rival, and familiar foe, Saint Louis Billikens, the Bears will face perennial powers Louisville and Iowa.
