Oak Knoll Field Hockey Ranked No. 2 in the Nation
Oak Knoll School of the Holy Child’s varsity field hockey team was named the No. 2-ranked in the nation when Max Field Hockey released its preseason national Top 25 rankings on Thursday, September 1, 2022.
Oak Knoll is one of just four teams from New Jersey to be ranked in the Top 25, including Camden Catholic High School, Kingsway Regional High School, and Eastern Regional High School. Throughout the fall season, the Royals will meet seven of the Top 25 teams.
The Royals come off an impressive 2021 season with a final record of 22-4. The team played the No. 2 and No. 3 ranked teams in Pennsylvania as well as the No. 1 and No. 2 teams in Connecticut during the season. The team won a County, Conference, and State Championship, and competed in the Tournament of Champions final game. The Royals beat six of the Top 15 teams in the state, earning them the ranking of No. 2 in the state of New Jersey, and a No. 11 national ranking.
This isn’t the first national ranking for the Royals’ field hockey team. In 2019, the team snagged a No. 1 national ranking, where the team also went on to win the County, State, and Tournament of Champions.
