When the No. 11 Boston University field hockey team takes on the University of Vermont Friday, it will be taking its first tangible steps toward defending the America East title that it earned in 2009. As non-conference play comes to a close, the Terriers will be looking to use the experience they gained against some tough NCAA opponents to best the rest of AE.
After getting shut out by the Monarchs of Old Dominion University on Sunday in their only game of the weekend, the No. 11 Boston University field hockey team passed the halfway point of their season.

The No. 13 Boston University field hockey team started last weekend’s slate of games with a clobbering at the hands of No. 5 Michigan State University by a score of 6-1 on Saturday.
