DURHAM, N.C. – Duke University head field hockey coach Pam Bustin has released the program’s 2017 spring competition schedule, which features four dates at Williams Field at Jack Katz Stadium.

After training through the early part of the spring, the Blue Devils open action by welcoming Appalachian State, Davidson and Wake Forest for a play day Saturday, March 25. Contests begin at 8 a.m. that day and continue through 4 p.m.

Bustin’s squad faces ACC opponent North Carolina Sunday, March 26 at 11 a.m. in Chapel Hill, N.C., before heading to Norfolk, Va., the following weekend to take on Old Dominion.

The Blue Devils host their second play day of the spring Saturday, April 2, with James Madison and North Carolina taking part in contests from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The program will hold its annual Alumnae Game at Williams Field at Jack Katz Stadium Saturday, April 8. The 10:30 a.m. contest will be followed by Duke’s annual Team Banquet that afternoon.

Duke then closes its spring slate with a home scrimmage against Wake Forest Wednesday, April 12 at 7 p.m.
