Maryland softball was ranked No. 21 by D1Softball on Monday following a 4-0 weekend at the ACC/Big Ten Challenge. This is Maryland’s highest ranking since 1999.

This past weekend, Maryland defeated both North Carolina and Virginia twice.

The Terps played tight games against Virginia on Friday and Saturday, edging out the Cavaliers 2-1 and 6-4, respectively.

Maryland then beat North Carolina 5-3 on Saturday before finishing the weekend with a sweep in a thrilling 4-3 Sunday victory.

Maryland sits at 8-1, its best start since 2012. Earlier this season, the Terps picked up ranked wins over No. 3 Oklahoma State and No. 22 Oregon.

Next up for Maryland is a matchup with Baylor at the Baylor Invitational, beginning Friday.
