The Wake Forest field hockey team was ranked No. 11 in the 2021 Preseason National Field Hockey Coaches Association (NFHCA) poll.

This marks the 28th-straight NFCHA poll the Deacs have been featured in. Last year, Wake Forest opened the season at No. 13 before ultimately rising to No. 9 for two-straight polls from April 6-20, it’s highest ranking since the poll’s creation in 2018.

Seven newcomers will join 17 returners from Wake Forest’s 2021 spring squad that saw the Deacs post a 3-3 record and a berth to the ACC Automatic-Qualifier Game.

The Deacs open up the 2021 slate in Iowa City, Iowa with a pair of contests in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge against No. 3 Iowa (Aug. 27) and No. 2 Michigan (Aug. 29). Wake Forest hits the Kentner Stadium turf for their home opener on Sept. 4 against App State at noon.
