Maryland softball is tied for its best conference start since 2018 after sweeping Iowa this past weekend, per release. The sweep ended with a 6-2 victory over the Hawkeyes on Sunday as the Terps advanced to 18-15 overall and 5-1 in conference play.

Junior pitcher Trinity Schlotterbeck led the Terps on the mound on Sunday. She pitched all seven innings and only allowed four hits. Schlotterbeck also drilled her first home run in the fifth inning, which gave Maryland a four-run lead over Iowa making it 6-2.

Sophomore outfielders Jaeda McFarland and Megan Mikami also had strong games at the plate on Sunday. McFarland had two RBIs on a double and a run scored. Mikami also posted an RBI.

Maryland will next play Coppin State on Wednesday at 6 p.m. in College Park before a weekend series against Purdue on the road.
