Maryland women’s lacrosse had two players receive Big Ten weekly honors as midfielder Shaylan Ahearn and attacker Aurora Cordingley earned different recognitions for their performances this past week.

Ahearn, a junior and a Woodbine, Maryland, native, was named Big Ten Midfielder of the Week after her stellar performance against No. 10 Virginia. Ahearn helped Maryland lead 19-15 in the draw circle. She especially had a brilliant effort in the third quarter, in which the Terps rattled off eight straight goals. Ahearn went 7-for-9 in draw controls in that quarter alone.

Ahearn is now top-10 in the nation in draw controls after two games.

Cordingley was named Big Ten Co-Offensive Player of the Week for the second week in a row after a four-goal, two-assist performance in the victory over No. 10 Virginia. Cordingley was very effective in the second half when she tallied all four of her goals. She has only played in two games as a Terp, yet she has collected Big Ten Co-Offensive Player of the Week honors after each effort.

Maryland is 2-0 to start the 2022 season after it took down No. 11 Virginia 17-13 last Friday in Charlottesville, Virginia. The Terps will next face No. 7 Florida on Saturday afternoon at home.
