Philadelphia College and University field hockey programs scrimmaged in the 2nd AnnualPhiladelphia Field Hockey Extravaganza, Saturday August 22, 2009 at Buckley Field in Drexel University's Vidas Athletic Complex.
Participating Colleges and Universities each played a one game match during the course of the event. Four full collegiate-length games were played.
One purpose of the event is to showcase and highlight the sport of field hockey through the day-long competition to area high school field hockey athletes who have just finished a week of pre-season or for those that are about to begin their preseason. Another principle goal is to spotlight premier field hockey within the city of Philadelphia itself to the growing city school programs. Philadelphia high schools joined the PIAA three years ago as District 12. To date, NorthEast High School has represented District 12 in the PIAA AAA state field hockey tournament.
This year Field Hockey America, sponsor of the event, donated 440 tshirts that were handed out at this event.
