Maryland softball senior Mackense Greico was named Big Ten Player of the Week, the program announced Tuesday afternoon.
Greico was a dominant force at the plate this past weekend for the Terps. The team was aided by Greico’s eight hits in 18 total at-bats. She collected three home runs, eight RBIs and 17 total bases.
The Big Ten Player of the Week recognition is the first of Greico’s career and she’s the first Terp to receive that honor since Lindsey Schmeiser received the same weekly award in 2015.
Greico and Maryland beat four out of the five programs it faced at the Chanticleer Showdown, which went from Feb. 25-27. The Terps opened the event by losing to Central Michigan by one run, but they rattled off four straight wins to close it out. Maryland beat Monmouth, North Carolina A&T, Coastal Carolina and Dartmouth to improve to an 8-6 overall record this season.
In the Terps’ 14-4 win over Monmouth, Greico notched two home runs. The 14 runs were the most that the Terps scored in a single game this season so far. Maryland will next head to Charlotte, North Carolina to play in the Queen City Classic that will go from March 4-5. The Terps will play Villanova twice, UNC Charlotte, Boston College and Virginia.
