Welcome to our inaugural Testudo Times Terp of the Week poll!
I will examine the landscape that is Maryland athletics and bring you, for your consideration, the best performances of the week.
You, the fans, decide who will have the high honor of being named Testudo Times Terp of the Week.
This week's competition will feature Volleyball's Adreene`Elliott, Field Hockey's Linnea Gonzales, Women's Soccer's Shannon Collins and Men's Soccer's Amar Sejdic.
Adreene Elliott, Volleyball
Elliott returned to the court this week after having missed last season with a knee injury. She led Maryland in kills at the Maryland Invitational this weekend. She had 36 kills on .281 hitting and also combined for 13 blocks. She made the Maryland Invitational All-Tournament team and was named the Maryland Invitational Tournament MVP.
Elliott helped Maryland sweep their first three matches of the year and take down Kent State in their final match of the weekend. She is a big part of the reason why Maryland Volleyball is 4-0 and looking to improve upon their 10-win season from a year ago.
Linnea Gonzales, Field Hockey
Gonzales, a freshman, made her first two starts of what looks like a very promising career at Maryland. Gonzales scored two goals against Temple in the season opener on Friday against Temple and two against St. Joseph's on Sunday. She sparked the third-ranked Terps to two wins and she will be a huge contributor as this team looks to defend their Big Ten title and contend for a national title.
Amar Sejdic, Men's Soccer
Sejdic, a freshman, didn't score in the team's 0-0 (2 OT) draw against fourth-ranked Notre Dame on Friday but he erupted for two goals in 44 minutes against St. John's on Sunday in the adidas/IU Credit Union Classic. Sejdic scored Maryland's first two goals of the game and led the Terps to a 4-0 romp against the Red Storm.
Shannon Collins, Women's Soccer
While Collins didn't score a point in the Terps 1-0 loss to WVU on Friday night, the senior defender came back on Sunday night and scored the lone goal in a 1-0 win against La Salle. Her first half goal on a corner kick stood up and pushed Maryland's record to 3-1-0 on the season. Collins is taking aim at the top-five of the Maryland career minutes played list this year.
