Question: Other than your home turf, where is your favorite place to play?
"Roanoke. The field is situated in a hollow, surrounded by the mountains. It's beautiful."
— Becky Elliott, Lancaster Bible College
"Ursinus College. The surface is outstanding — it really encapsulates the history and tradition of UC field hockey. It's is also the home of the Field Hockey Hall of Fame."
— Sally Scatton, William Smith College
"The Bermudian National Stadium. Besides getting to play against the Bermudian national teams, the venue is amazing, and the temperatures in January are perfect for a nice winter-break trip to play a few games."
— Laura Gingrich, Alvernia University
"Bello Field — the former home of Tufts field hockey and site of blood, sweat, and tears for TUFH."
— Lindsay Griffith, DeSales University
"Old Dominion's Foreman Field. Even though it's no longer standing, it held so many memories and a lot of history."
— Anna Rogers, Lock Haven University
