LANCASTER - The United States women's national field hockey team is going to be based in Lancaster next year.
USA Field Hockey announced Tuesday that it will make Spooky Nook Sports its home base in 2014. The team says the $25 million sports complex, which is still under construction, will host USA Field Hockey sanctioned events through 2022.
USA Field Hockey executive director Steve Locke says the team has been searching for a "Home of Hockey" in the Northeast for several years. Nook Sports will be USA Field Hockey's home base for many elite, junior and development events.
The Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era reports much of the sports complex is expected to be completed by March 1, but the section for USA Field Hockey won't be done until late summer.
