Maryland men’s and women’s lacrosse earned weekly honors for their stellar performances last week.

No. 1 Maryland men’s lacrosse was named the USILA team of the week after defeating No. 8 Loyola last Saturday and moving into the No. 1 spot in the country.

Face-off specialist Luke Wierman was named the Big Ten Specialist of the Week. He won a career high 19 face-offs and went 76% from the X while scoring two goals. He also recorded an assist and picked up a career-high 11 ground balls.

No. 8 Maryland women’s lacrosse’s Aurora Cordingley was named the Big Ten Co-Offensive player of the week. The graduate transfer scored five of Maryland’s first 10 goals in Saturday’s 20-6 win over St. Joseph’s, her first game for the Terps.

Cordingley’s five goals came on five shots and she was the only Big Ten player to score five goals in a game this week.
