2013 NCAA Division I Field Hockey Championship

The NCAA Division I Field Hockey Championship is an American intercollegiate field hockey tournament conducted by the National Collegiate Athletic Association, and determines the Division I women's national champion. The tournament has been annually since 1981. The most successful team are the Old Dominion Lady Monarchs who have nine titles. The most recent championship, hosted in Norfolk, Virginia, was won by the three-time national champion Connecticut.

Division II and Division III championships are also held each year.

History[edit]

Field hockey was one of twelve women's sports added to the NCAA championship program for the 1981-82 school year, as the NCAA engaged in battle with the AIAW for sole governance of women's collegiate sports. The AIAW continued to conduct its established championship program in the same twelve (and other) sports; however, after a year of dual women's championships, the NCAA overcame the AIAW and usurped its authority and membership. The first NCAA women's national championship events were staged November 21-November 22, 1981, in cross country and field hockey.

The tournament originally began with six teams but has since expanded to sixteen; at different times a third-place game has been played as well. Under the tournament's current format, sixteen teams qualify for the tournament with the games of the first two rounds played at the home turf of the higher seeds in each match-up. The final four teams then move on to the championship rounds at a pre-determined site.
