Maryland softball (36-16, 11-11 Big Ten) earned the No. 8 seed in the Big Ten Tournament following a three-game sweep over Illinois this past weekend. The tournament will take place from May 10-13.
The road sweep was the Terps’ first since joining the Big Ten in 2014. Maryland outscored the Illini a combined 20-4 in the series.
Saturday’s 8-1 win marked the Terps’ 10th conference win of the season, making it the third consecutive year in which they have won at least 10 Big Ten contests.
Maryland, which has racked up its most wins in a single season since 2011, will face No. 9-seed Iowa in the first round on Wednesday. The Terps won the regular-season series between the two teams, 2-1.
