NORFOLK, Va. – The Old Dominion University field hockey program officially joined the BIG EAST Conference as an associate member on Monday, July 1.

"It is an exciting step for Old Dominion field hockey, moving into this conference,” ODU head coach Andrew Griffiths. “The BIG EAST has traditionally been extremely competitive, producing numerous Final Four appearances in recent years. Our players and coaches are fired up to build new rivalries. We hope to continue to push the competitive level higher with our participation and help to make BIG EAST field hockey even stronger moving forward.”

Joining the BIG EAST as an associate member in 2013 along with Louisville, Temple, Connecticut and Rutgers, the Lady Monarchs will play a seven-game conference schedule that also features Villanova, Providence and Georgetown in addition to their challenging non-conference slate.

Old Dominion University has competed as a field hockey member of the CAA since 1992, winning the regular season title 14 times and tournament title 15 times. Old Dominion is coming off a 15-6 campaign a year ago and advanced to the NCAA Quarterfinals after going 7-0 and capturing their record 15th CAA title in their last year in the league. The Lady Monarchs have been ranked in the Top-10 in the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) poll for 22 consecutive weeks dating back to the 2011 season.

For the second consecutive year, Old Dominion will host the NCAA Division I national title game along with the national semifinals on Nov. 22 and 24. In addition, the Division II and Division III national title games will also be played at the L.R. Hill Sports Complex on Nov. 24.
