After a stellar 3-0 week for Maryland field hockey, winning games over Towson, No. 6 Virginia and James Madison, senior keeper Noelle Frost was named the Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week on Monday.
This is Frost’s first time earning this award in her career and it’s the first time a Maryland player has won it this season.
Last week, Frost didn’t have to face any shots in a 5-0 victory over Towson, but she was a crucial part of the team’s win over No. 6 Virginia. In a wild game, the senior notched six saves, including the game-winning save in a shootout, which tied for her career-high.
To cap off the week, the Terps pulled out a 4-0 victory of James Madison, where Frost saved four shots. For the entire week, Frost was a wall in goal as she totaled 10 saves, allowed two goals and recorded two shutouts.
This is the first season the senior has comfortably held the starting job, and she’s thrived. The veteran is 6-1 on the year, tallying 21 saves and allowing just five goals. Frost is also currently ranked 13th in all of the NCAA in save percentage, posting an impressive .808.
