Field hockey moves to No. 15 ranking

Temple took the No. 15 spot in the third week of the Penn Monto/NFHCA Division I Coaches Poll, and the No. 13 spot in the first week of the NCAA’s RPI rankings.

The Owls are 5-3 after splitting back-to-back games this weekend. Temple defeated Bucknell on the road 2-1 last Saturday, but lost 1-0 at home to Drexel in overtime a day later.

Redshirt senior goalkeeper Lizzy Millen made 11 saves during the weekend, moving her up to ninth in Division I with an 82.1 percent average. Millen’s goals against average of 1.38 ranks No. 17 in the nation after allowing two goals in those two games.

Temple has back-to-back games on the schedule again this weekend, with home matchups against Kent State (2-5) Saturday at noon and American University (5-3) Sunday at 2 p.m.
