Maryland men’s and women’s lacrosse players earned weekly honors. No. 8 Maryland women’s lacrosse goalie Emily Sterling earned national and conference recognition. She was named the IWLCA National Defensive Player of the Week and Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week.

Sterling recorded a career-high 13 saves in last Thursday’s win against Penn State and a .684 save percentage. Sterling has been phenomenal in net in recent weeks, with the Penn State win marking Sterling’s third straight game giving up less than six goals.

No. 1 Maryland men’s lacrosse’s John Geppert was named Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week. In Sunday’s win over No. 4 Rutgers, Geppert picked up five ground balls. The Terps held Rutgers to nine goals. This was Geppert’s first time winning the award this season and fourth time in his career.

Maryland men’s lacrosse takes on Ohio State this Saturday at home in its second-to-last regular season game of the year, while Maryland women’s lacrosse has a matchup with No. 12 Princeton tonight.
