The culmination of the elite league will be at the National Futures Tournament in July, held at the University of Maryland, where the top four teams in the league will compete in the championship round. Patterson will be joined on the Eclipse by Brown field hockey coach Carolan Norris, who was recently named co-coach of the squad.
