Maryland women’s lacrosse had seven players earn All-American honors, Inside Lacrosse announced on Monday.

Junior goalie Emily Sterling, who was also the Big Ten Goaltender of the Year, was named to the first team. Graduate defender Abby Bosco, along with graduate attacker Aurora Cordingley were named to the first team as well.

Bosco was named the Big Ten Defender of the Year with 3.15 groundballs per game, good for seventh in the country. She was also a Tewaaraton nominee.

Cordingley ranks fourth in the nation in both points and assists. She was named the Big Ten Attacker of the Year, the Big Ten Tournament MVP and is a Tewaaraton award finalist.

Junior midfielder Shaylan Ahearn was named to the third team, while graduate midfielder Grace Griffin, graduate attacker Hannah Leubecker, and junior attacker Libby May earned honorable mentions.

The influx of selections come as no surprise as Maryland dominated the Big Ten and earned the No. 2-seed in the NCAA Tournament, making a trip the Final Four for the 12th time in 13 years. The Terps will play in the national semifinals this Friday against Boston College at 5 p.m.
