The three-day tournament begins on Friday, Oct. 4. Annette Dohanics, Caitlin Hindmarsh, Ellen Silver, Shelby Talcott, Aimee Tarun and Katie Zordani will compete for the Hawkeyes.

In addition to Iowa, the eight-team field includes Virginia Tech, Boston College, Dartmouth, Brown, Yale, Purdue and Penn State. Four of the teams finished last season ranked in the top 64 in the final 2013 ITA rankings.
