One day after being selected as the second overall seed in the upcoming NCAA tournament, the Maryland women’s lacrosse team received more positive news as they had three players selected for Big Ten honors.
Aurora Cordingley was named the conference’s Attacker of the Year, Abby Bosco won the Big Ten Defender of the Year, and Emily Sterling was unanimously voted as the best goaltender in the conference.
All three have had outstanding seasons, with Cordingley leading the Terps with over six points per game, including a 16-point performance in last weekend’s conference championship run.
In goal, Sterling leads the nation in both save percentage and goals-against average.
Both Cordingley and Bosco are nominees for the Tewaaraton Award, given to the nation’s top player.
These three leaders will look to propel the Terps to their second championship in the past three seasons.
They will take on the winner of Duke and Johns Hopkins next Sunday at 5:30 p.m. in the second round of the tournament.
