Maryland field hockey midfielder Sophie Klautz was tabbed as the Big Ten Freshman of the Week by the conference Tuesday.

Hailing from Oegstgeest, The Netherlands, Klautz has had an emphatic start to her Maryland career. She has started in both games for the Terps, who are 2-0 thus far. Klautz poured in two of the Terps’ seven goals against Drexel in Friday’s season opener. She was quieter in Maryland’s following matchup with Stanford, only taking one shot, but played 34 minutes in a nail-biting 1-0 victory.

Klautz is tied with sophomore forward Hope Rose, senior midfielder Emma DeBerdine, senior midfielder Nathalie Fiechter and senior forward Margot Lawn for the team lead with two goals. She is the only freshman on the team to start both games this season.

The fourth-ranked Terps look to stay hot this weekend with Big Ten/ACC matchups against Boston College and Duke.
