Johns Hopkins is picked to finish second in the Centennial Conference in 2018 in a vote of the conference's coaches. The Blue Jays earned four first-place votes and a total of 89 points to finish behind defending champion Franklin & Marshall. Hopkins went 9-1 and allowed just seven goals in league play before falling to the Diplomats in the Centennial Conference title game a year ago at Homewood Field.
Hopkins is also receiving votes in the National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) preseason poll for the first time since 2012. Twice in 2017 the Blue Jays received votes in the national poll, the first time that had happened in-season in six years.
PLAYERS TO WATCH
Head Coach Jane Wells
Wells had one of the most successful first seasons in program history. She guided the Blue Jays to a 14-win season, tying the record for most wins by a first-year head coach in JHU field hockey history. Hopkins made its first Centennial Conference Tournament appearance since 2011 and played in the title game for the first time since 2009. Wells would earn Centennial Conference Coach of the Year honors at the end of the season.
