Maryland field hockey midfielder Brooke DeBerdine was named as the National Field Hockey Coaches Association’s Mid Atlantic Regional Player of the Year, the program announced earlier on Monday.
The NFHCA Regional Player of the Year award is another accolade for DeBerdine, who has had her fair share of success in 2021 as well as her entire career at Maryland. Last week, DeBerdine was honored with a selection to the All-Mid Atlantic Region First Team and she also earned an All-Big Ten First Team selection for the second season in a row.
DeBerdine, a graduate student, helped lead the program to a 15-7 overall record this season. The Terps made it all the way to the NCAA Tournament’s Final Four, though they were taken down by No. 9-seed Liberty in double overtime. The long-time Terp DeBerdine has officially played 104 games in her Maryland career, the most by an individual in program history.
In 2021, DeBerdine added one goal in 22 starts, though most of her presence could be found in the midfield. She was a workhorse for Maryland this season, playing 1,266 minutes, the third-most on the team.
