COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State Field Hockey welcomes seven new players to the program for the 2020-2021 season. The student–athletes include six true freshmen and one graduate transfer from the Netherlands. All having signed National Letters of Intent within the past week, this milestone signifies the official commitment to Ohio State University field hockey and head coach Jarred Martin believes the future is bright.

“I am excited to welcome this group of seven next fall as Buckeyes! They are coming to Ohio State following great careers at their respective schools/clubs and will bring those  experiences and passions to Columbus. This group is competitive and athletic, and they are constantly looking to improve. Throughout the recruiting process the coaching staff and current team have really enjoyed getting to know these young women and their families.”
