Maryland women’s lacrosse attacker Aurora Cordingley earned her Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week Honors and IWLCA National Offensive Player of the Week honors for the fourth and second time this season, respectively.
The graduate transfer has been an addition to the Terps who has made an immediate impact. Cordingley 7.67 points per game lead Division I women’s lacrosse and she is the only Division I player to average more than seven points.
She had an 11-point performance Saturday against Villanova made up of six goals and five assists. Cordingley’s 27 goals, 19 assists, 46 points, 39 shots, 36 shots on goals and five free position goals all lead the team in their respective stat area. The attacker also has 12 ground balls and six caused turnovers, both the second-best on the team.
Cordingley is the first Maryland women’s lacrosse star to earn Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week four times in a single season since midfielder Taylor Cummings earned it five times in 2015 and the first Terp to earn IWLCA Player of the Week twice in a season since goalkeeper Megan Taylor earned it three times in 2019, per release.
Cordingley and the Terps will be back in action Sunday, March 20 to take on No. 17 Rutgers, the first of three consecutive matchups against ranked opponents.
