Maryland field hockey signed seven freshmen to its 2022 recruiting class, head coach Missy Meharg and the program announced Tuesday.
Maryland signed three players with the potential to make a mark on the defensive end of the field. Lillian Buckwalter of Lancaster, Pennsylvania was a three-time Lancaster Lebanon League All-Star, including First Team in 2021. Ava Trexler of Pittsgrove, New Jersey had great success with her club team, placing fourth in the National Club Championship. Ericka Morris-Adams of Cheshire, England was playing for a Premier League club by age 15 and was later selected to be captain of the U18 English National Team.
Two midfielders will join the Terps from abroad: Sophie Klautz and Juana Laskowski. Klautz comes from Oegstgeest, The Netherlands. Laskowski hails from Buenos Aires, Argentina and played on a variety of club teams in multiple countries. Her impressive performance with Key Biscayne Hockey Club brought her to the attention of the Maryland coaching staff.
Maryland also signed two talented attackers. Therese “Reese” Delp of Kensington, Maryland was one of the DMV’s most talented players, earning Washington Post All-Met honors in her junior and senior years. Leah Horwitz is from Charlotte, North Carolina and earned All-State honors in her junior and senior seasons.
“From Maryland, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Argentina, Holland and England, this class brings depth, diversity and talent from around the globe,” Meharg said about the incoming class in the release.
