As the spring season continues, No. 24 Maryland softball (22-5) starts its Big Ten conference slate this weekend against Indiana.
Recently, the Terps have been in great form, winning 13 of their last 14 games and most recently going 3-1 in the Capital City Classic. After having the most wins in a season since 2015 last season with 29, this season is looking like another step up for the program, which will enter conference play with 22 wins.
Junior outfielder Jaeda McFarland leads the clubhouse in batting average at .400 and sophomore catcher Amelia Lech has been playing beyond her years, leading the team in RBIs with 29 and home runs with nine.
Senior pitcher Courtney Wyche leads the team in strikeouts (85) over 69 innings pitched in 13 appearances. And, freshman pitcher Keira Butcher has a 1.27 ERA in 27.2 innings as a reliever. As a whole, the Terps’ bullpen has the fourth-lowest ERA in the conference.
The 2023 season has the potential to be a big year for the Terps and head coach Mark Montgomery. It will continue when Big Ten play begins with a doubleheader on Saturday at Indiana after Friday’s game was rescheduled due to weather.
