A total of 24 student-athletes were active on the first day of camp Wednesday, 21 field players and three goalkeepers. Under the direction of 15-year head coach John Bluem, Ohio State faces eight teams from last year’s NCAA Tournament, including defending national champion Akron, national runner-up Louisville and national semifinalist Michigan, all in a nine-day span.
