Coming off the 2022 season with a 19-2 overall record, Big Ten regular-season and tournament titles and an appearance in the program's 12th Final Four in the past 13 seasons, Maryland women’s lacrosse, led by head coach Cathy Reese, released its 2023 schedule Tuesday.
Ten of Maryland’s 17 opponents finished the 2022 season in the IWLCA Coaches Poll, including 13 opponents that finished in the top 15. Notable opponents for the Terps this season include Syracuse, Northwestern, Florida, Princeton and Rutgers.
Maryland will begin its season at home against 2022 Atlantic 10 champion Saint Joseph’s on Feb. 11.
All of the team’s games this upcoming season will be held at SECU Stadium due to ongoing renovations at the Field Hockey and Lacrosse Complex. The Terps will return to “The Plex” in 2024.
Maryland will have nine starters returning from last year, including all-Americans Abby Bosco, Hannah Leubecker and Emily Sterling. All-Big Ten standouts Libby May, Shay Ahearn and Maddie Sanchez also are back. The Terps also landed top transfer Marge Donovan and the nation’s top freshman class.
