COLLEGE PARK, Md. - The Maryland field hockey team, ranked No. 2 in the latest Kookaburra / NFHCA Division I National Coaches Poll, will head to Princeton N.J. Tuesday to take on the fourth-ranked Tigers at 6 p.m. at the Class of 1952 Stadium. Maryland owns the all-time record over the Tigers 14-4-1 and has won the last 13 meetings.
