DURHAM, N.C.-  The Duke women's field hockey team is set to host their spring tournament this weekend, March 17 and 18, 2012 at Jack Katz Stadium.  Six teams including Michigan, Davidson, Virginia, William & Mary, North Carolina and Old Dominion, will join the Blue Devils during the weekend to participate in the round robin tournaments.  Each game will last approximately thirty minutes and each team will have the opportunity to compete against all teams participating at least once throughout the weekend.   See below for a full competition schedule.

The four teams participating on Sunday will also play a round robin style tournament early in the morning and then to increase the competition level, they will be seeded and placed in a bracket to determine the overall winner of the day.

In 2011, Duke finished with a 14-8 record overall and an NCAA quarterfinal appearance.  They lost five seniors due to graduation, including All-Americans Stefanie Fee, Rhian Jones and Samantha Nelson.  Head coach Pam Bustin and the rest of the Blue Devil coaching staff are bringing in five newcomers to make up the class of 2016 who will join the team next August.
