The Big Ten released its weekly field hockey awards and the Terps, ranked No. 4 nationally and likely will rise in the next poll, swept the honors.

Graduate midfielder Danielle Van Rootselaar earned Offensive Player of the Week honors, scoring all four of Maryland goals in the team’s two wins over No. 3 Iowa and No. 2 Northwestern.

Junior defender Rayne Wright brought home the Defensive Player of the Week award, as she starred on a Maryland defense that gave up only two goals across its two games against the Hawkeyes and Wildcats. She is the first Terp to receive the honor this year.

Lastly, for the third time this year and in back-to-back weeks, midfielder Sophie Klautz was named Big Ten Freshman of the Week.
