Last year, the Terps left the tournament without a win under their belts.

Maryland field hockey was on the verge of falling to 1-3 after the Big Ten/ ACC Cup, still without a win against a ranked opponent in 2016.

Instead, the No. 6 Terps topped No. 8 Boston College 3-1 to notch their second win of the season.

Head coach Missy Meharg prepped her squad well following a one goal loss to No. 4 Duke just days prior. The Blue Devils limited Maryland to just 12 shots, handing Meharg and Co. their first blanking of the season. Following the quick turnaround, the Terps unleashed for 23 shots against the Eagles.

Welma Luus is off to a hot start.

The graduate forward has already netted four goals on the season, including two against Boston College on Sunday. Luus is one of the deadliest scorers in the sport, coming off a 20-goal senior campaign in 2015. She's got one more go-around here in College Park, and she's looking to make the most of it.

Sarah Holliday's freshman campaign was no joke

The sophomore goalkeeper is already making strides following a breakout freshman season. Holliday has been the clear-cut starter for the Terps between the pipes, allowing just seven goals behind 14 saves.

Maryland moves to 2-2 on the season, with just a handful of games to go before the start of conference play. The Terps will host California, American and Fairfield in the Terrapin Invitational in College Park this weekend.
