Jan. 16, 2019 — The unreachable goal?

Six weeks ago, we wrote this.

The last couple of days, this happened.

I don’t know the gory details about how many pledges that the fund for the University of Pacific field hockey team has received, or whether they have a well-heeled donor to perhaps push the number over the top.

But what I know is this: if this is the kind of thing that is to be repeated at 80 NCAA Division I field hockey programs and/or others who don’t have the full financial support of the athletics departments of their particular schools, I don’t see a way forward for the sport as is currently constructed.
