For the past 13 years, the Editorial Board of The Chronicle has published weekly and, for much of that history, daily columns reflecting on issues related to Duke and the broader communities that the University touches.

After earning their first NCAA tournament berth since 2015, the Blue Devils didn't make much of a splash on the national stage, falling 3-0 to Loyola Marymount in the opening round of tournament.

The Duke field hockey team is revving up for another campaign after the title hopes of the 2018 season fizzled out in the second round. An unfortunate 1-0 loss to Wake Forest sent the Blue Devils packing, capping off a 16-6 season that ended with a No. 5 overall ranking but without the hardware the team had in its sights.

It seems as though its a yearly occurrence that Duke has the aspiration, the excitement, and, most importantly, the talent to compete for a national championship. This year is no different, as a seasoned Blue Devil team ranked eighth in the preseason polls will soon begin a journey to reach the promised land for the third time in the program’s history and hopefully win its first ever College Cup. Head coach Robbie Church has confidence that with Duke’s stellar defense and young but vibrant offense, this could be their year.
