Maryland women’s lacrosse already won the national championship this spring with a perfect 23-0 record. Senior midfielder Zoe Stukenberg already won the Tewaaraton Award, the sport’s highest individual honor. She and several of her teammates have already captured various conference and national awards.
But what’s a couple more?
Stukenberg and fellow senior Nadine Hadnagy were named Inside Lacrosse’s National Midfielder and Defender of the Year, respectively, this week. Both received the same honor from the Women’s Lacrosse Coaches Association last week. According to the school’s website, Stukenberg has earned 13 different individual accolades this season; this will be Hadnagy’s ninth.
Sophomore goalie Megan Taylor was the WCLA Goalie of the Year; IL hasn’t named its top goalie yet, but she’s probably the favorite. Having the nation’s best player at three of the four positions seems like a reliable recipe for success, and Maryland is fortunate enough to have just that.
