August 22, 2012 - Andy Heintz
Whoever wins the women's field hockey conference championship this season in the Big Ten Conference will definitely have earned the title.

The preseason poll is out and five Big Ten Conference schools find their way in the top 25 rankings. Iowa will begin the season at No. 12 in the 2012 Penn Monto/National Field Hockey Coaches Association Division I Preseason Poll. The Hawkeyes garnered 347 points in the rankings.

Joining the Hawkeyes will be ninth-ranked Penn State, No. 10 Michigan, No. 15 Ohio State and No. 20 Northwesten. A total of nine Hawkeye opponents are in the preseason top 25 poll.

Iowa opens the regular season at the Big Ten/ACC Challenge on Aug. 25-26 in Winston-Salem, N.C. The Hawkeyes open play against No. 13 Wake Forest on Saturday before facing second-ranked North Carolina on Sunday.
