Five Maryland women’s lacrosse seniors have elected to use their fifth year of eligibility and return to the Terps next year, a team spokesperson confirmed.

Midfielder Shaylan Ahearn, defender Brianna Lamoureux, attacker Hannah Leubecker, attacker Libby May and goalie Emily Sterling are all set to play a fifth year in College Park.

The aforementioned seniors have each been key contributors for the Terps this season. May leads the team in goals this season with 45, while Ahearn has a team-high 103 draw controls. Both players were named Midseason All–Americans by Inside Lacrosse and have started every game this season.

Leubecker is third on the team in goals with 30, and fourth in points with 36. Lamoureux has the second-most ground balls (23) and the third-most caused turnovers (eight).

Sterling has started every game in net for Maryland this season, and was named the IWLCA National Goalkeeper of the Year last season. She has 124 saves so far this season.

With a combined six All Big-Ten selections among the group, head coach Cathy Reese has a core in place for the near future.

The tenth-ranked Terps will play their penultimate game of the regular season at 8 p.m. Thursday against No. 17 Penn State.
