Jan. 10, 2018 — Another field hockey star chooses the Big Ten

Sophia Gladieux, the Oley Valley (Pa.) field hockey attacker who made an immediate impact with three points in her first varsity half of play, following it up with a 50-goal season in 2017, will be playing her collegiate field hockey at Penn State.

Gladieux is the latest in a wave of commitments to Big Ten schools, following the likes of Emma DeBerdine (Maryland) and Mackenzie Allessie (Ohio State).

This infusion of American talent is likely to reshape the entire conference, bringing it up to par with the Atlantic Coast Conference.
