UNC to Play for Seventh National Championship Today in College Park

In what has been an unsually disappointing fall sports season – no ACC championships, and women's soccer exiting the NCAA tournament with their worst loss in quite some time – UNC's field hockey team is within striking distance of their seventh title. The Heels survived an overtime game with Virginia to advance to the finals, where they'll meet Maryland. Not only do the Terps have a home-field advantage, but they've won both of the previous match-ups, 3-2 in College Park and 5-2 in the ACC championship. History is on Carolina's side though – two of their titles have come by beating Maryland in the finals. The first was in 1995, the second an upset in 2009. They'l' need all the support they can get for the third, so if you're in the area, swing by.
