The West/Mid-West Region consists of all public and private schools in the states of California, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan, Missouri, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas, and Wisconsin.

Serra returns as the top team in the West/Mid-West Region heading into the 2017 season.  The Conquistadors may be without West/Mid-West Region Player of the Year Megan Rodgers (now the leading scorer at Cal with 7 goals in 6 games!), but they return a lot of talent, including a Top 10 player in senior Kathryn Peterson (Michigan commit).

A Note About Preseason Rankings:

MAX Field Hockey’s Preseason High School Rankings are based heavily on the previous Fall’s Final Rankings and team performances.  As much as possible, seniors graduated and key returning players are taken into consideration, but complete information is not always available for each program.  Historic dominance and success at the highest level and in the postseason are a major factor.  MAX Field Hockey’s general ranking philosophy: you must prove it on the field and beat the best and ranked teams to move onto and up the rankings!

MAX Field Hockey always welcomes feedback on the High School Rankings.
