OXFORD, Ohio – The Miami University field hockey team’s Mid-American Conference opener scheduled for Saturday in Athens has been postponed due to issues with the Bobcats’ field. It has been rescheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 23 at 5 p.m.

“We have been working with Ohio University and the MAC office to find a solution, said head coach Iñako Puzo. “I believe both schools can be happy with the agreement to play on October 23rd at 5 pm.  I appreciate the efforts from all the parties involved in this to ensure the integrity of the competition.”

Miami returns to action on Sunday when it hosts Michigan State in a non-conference game at 1 p.m.

“We will now focus on our game on Sunday against Michigan State and on our own development,” said Puzo.
