Maryland softball improved to 26-8 overall and 3-3 in Big Ten play this past weekend with a clean sweep of Michigan State.

With all three games at Maryland Softball Stadium, the Terps played a doubleheader on Friday and the final game Sunday. Maryland won 3-0 in game one, 11-0 in game two and 8-0 in game three; the second game took just five innings while the third game only took six.

The weekend marked Maryland softball’s first-ever Big Ten series sweep with three shutouts. It was Maryland’s first conference series sweep since the beginning of last April against Iowa.

Senior pitcher Courtney Wyche tossed a gem Sunday, allowing one hit and striking out 12 batters in six innings. Wyche also pitched Friday’s first game, giving up three hits and walking just one batter in seven innings. Senior Trinity Schlotterbeck got the start for Friday’s second game, tossing five innings of two-hit ball.

The Terps’ weekend continued their program-best start. Maryland will take the field again Wednesday with a doubleheader at Rutgers.
