Top five field hockey events to attend this season

The field hockey season starts in a few and LWSN wanted to take a look at the biggest games for this upcoming season.

Apple Tournament at Sacred  Heart (Aug. 16th to 24th)

This is the biggest in-season field hockey tournament in the state of Kentucky. With it being the 48th year, the question is whether or not Sacred Heart reclaim the throne for the first time since 2015 or will Assumption or defending state champion Christian Academy win again?

Sacred Heart at Assumption, 5:30 p.m. ( Sep. 9th)

It’s the Mug Game as these two rivals potentially square for the second time this season and fight for the coveted trophy that’s a basic coffee mug. It’s a big game because both of these teams will be in the running for a state champion come October.

Assumption at Manual, 7 p.m. (Sep. 11)

Manual is usually one of the best four teams in the state. We learn on this night whether Manual can hang with the top teams or if they’re in a separate tier.

Christian Academy at Sacred Heart, 6:45 p.m. (Sep. 13th)

It’s a district game. While the postseason matchup will be far more important, this will give us some insight on what’s to come later in the season.

Manual at Male, 5:30 p.m. (Oct. 10th)

It’s Male vs. Manual. Does anything else need to be said. There rivals and this game is a big deal to both communities.
