The Stags will be the top seed in the upcoming NEC Championship Tournament, Nov. 5 – 7.

Following a 5-0 victory this past Sunday at Merrimack, Fairfield University Field Hockey has clinched the Northeast Conference (NEC) Regular Season Championship. The Stags, who are an unbeaten 6-0 in conference play with one game remaining, will be the top seed in the upcoming NEC Championship Tournament.

Led by Head Coach Jackie Kane ’87, the Stags are 10-7 overall and have outscored NEC opponents by a count of 19-1 in their six league victories. Fairfield wraps up the regular season this weekend with a Friday NEC matchup at Bryant and a Sunday non-conference trip to Vermont.

The NEC Championship is a four-team, single-elimination tournament scheduled for Nov. 5 and 7 at Wagner College on Staten Island. The Stags’ semifinal opponent and game time on Nov. 5 is still to be determined. Visit FairfieldStags.com for the most up-to-date information.

Fairfield previously won both the NEC Regular Season and Tournament Championship in 2019 — its first season in the league — as a part of an historic campaign. The 2019 Stags won a program-record 19 games and went on to host and defeat #23 American in the NCAA First Round. The Stags then battled #2 nationally ranked UConn into overtime before falling in Second Round action.

In its history, Fairfield field hockey has also won two MAAC Tournament Championships (2015, 2017) and the 2001 Patriot League Championship. In total, the Stags have made four NCAA postseason appearances.
