Coming off of a 2-0 week for No. 4 Maryland field hockey, which picked up wins over No. 10 Princeton and No. 18 Rutgers, midfielder Linda Cobano was awarded Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week Monday.

This is the first time that the sophomore has earned the honor, and it’s also the first time a Terp has won it this season. Two weeks ago, senior goalie Noelle Frost was awarded Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week.

Cobano, a transfer from Germany, has been able to provide a ton of offense for the Terps in her first NCAA season. Last week, she scored the first two goals of the game for Maryland in a 4-3 overtime victory over No. 10 Princeton.

This past Sunday, Cobano matched her career-high for goals in a game, scoring the only goals for the Terps in a 2-1 victory against No. 18 Rutgers.

After a four-goal week, Cobano has now positioned herself at the top of the stat sheet — she leads the team in goals with six. After not being eligible for the first two games of the season, Cobano has made her presence felt on the offensive end in the eight games she has played for Maryland.
