Maryland softball is off to its best start in program history through 34 games with a record of 26-8, and this week, for the first time ever, a Terp was named the Extra Inning National Player of the Week. Senior Trinity Schlotterbeck was the one to earn the honor.
Schlotterbeck was also named Big Ten Player of the Week.
Schlotterbeck was recognized after going on an absolute offensive tear. Opposing pitchers could find no answer for her, as she drove in runs and hit the ball to all different parts of the park. She had six hits to amass a batting average and on-base percentage of .500 and a slugging percentage of 1.167.
Her week was headlined by a career performance against Maryland-Eastern Shore, in which she hit two home runs and drove in six runs.
The Terps play Rutgers next, with a doubleheader scheduled for Wednesday at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.

At 6'3, Miller is impressive off the bounce, can defend and got recognition from the likes of Kevin Durant and Steph Curry for her tough play #WNBADraft23 pic.twitter.com/g73H2yhqFC
