Last Friday, the Maryland women’s soccer team defeated Michigan, 1-0, and broke an almost three-year drought without a win in Big Ten play. As such, two members of the team were rewarded with honors this week.
Defender Tahirah Turnage was named Big Ten Freshman of the Week following an electric performance in the win. Turnage not only played solid defense the entire 90 minutes — helping the team secure the shutout — but also helped the team build from the back, demonstrating creativity on the ball. Turnage is the first Terrapin to win the award since October 2018.

Tahirah Turnage of @TerpsWSoccer is the #B1GWSOC Freshman of the Week!
Started and played the full 90 minutes in Maryland’s 1-0 win over Michigan
Helped the Terrapins earn their first-ever win over Michigan
Turnage wasn’t the only Terp honored, as College Soccer News named senior goalkeeper Madeline Smith to their Women’s National Team of the Week. Smith did everything that could possibly be asked of her, keeping a clean sheet against the Wolverines. This proved vital as the Terrapins only managed one goal. The senior recorded five total saves by the end of the 90 minutes.
