No. 6 Maryland field hockey had two players earn All-Big Ten honors for the 2021 season, the program announced on Wednesday. Graduate student midfielder Brooke DeBerdine was named to the All-Big Ten First Team for the second straight season, while forward Hope Rose was given the Big Ten Freshman of the Year award and she was also included on the All-Big Ten Second Team.
DeBerdine is the Terps’ captain and holds the program record for career starts with 100 games under her belt. DeBerdine tallied five goals and seven assists in 2021. Last season, she was named a Third Team All-American by the National Field Hockey Coaches Association and played in the 2020 NFHCA Senior All-Star Game before returning to Maryland for a fifth season.
Rose, on the other hand, led the freshmen in the conference with eight goals, finishing second on the team only behind senior Bibi Donraadt, who was named Big Ten Freshman of the Year in 2018. Rose also had three assists on the season and was named Big Ten Freshman of the Week on three separate occasions. Rose is the 12th player in program history to be named the top freshman in the conference.
Also receiving praise from the conference was sophomore defender Logan Anderson, who was given a Big Ten Sportsmanship Award. This award is earned by a student-athlete at each school who distinguishes themselves through their sportsmanship and ethical behavior.
The Terrapins will begin postseason play on Thursday at 5 p.m. when they face off against No. 3-seed Penn State in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten Tournament.
