Maryland field hockey defender Ericka Morris-Adams earned her third Big Ten Freshman of the Week honor, it was announced Monday. Morris-Adams has been a massive contributor on the defensive end to the No. 2 team in the country in wins against both No. 5 Virginia and No. 14 UConn.

Morris-Adams played all 60 minutes in Maryland’s shutout win over Virginia. She helped hold the Cavaliers to six shots on goal and no goals in a 2-0 win. She also played 49 minutes against UConn, where the Terps won, 2-1, in double-overtime on the road.

This is her third Big Ten Freshman of the Week award this season. She previously won for her contributions in a shutout win over Georgetown two weeks ago and a dominant defensive performance over Harvard at the beginning of the season.

Maryland is the No. 2 seed in the Big Ten Tournament and will play Ohio State on Thursday in Columbus, Ohio.
