No. 2 Maryland field hockey won a share of the Big Ten regular season title, but that wasn’t the only award that the Terps took home.

Senior midfielder Madison Maguire was awarded Offensive Player of the Year honors Tuesday, while junior defender Bodil Keus won Defensive Player of the Year for the second consecutive season.

In addition to these awards, Maguire, Keus and freshman midfielder Emma DeBerdine were all named to the All-Big Ten First Team.

Maguire was a key part of the Terps’ offense, leading with 34 points on 12 goals and 10 assists in the regular season. The senior also tied for the team-high in game winning goals with three. Additionally, Maguire won two Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week awards during this season.

Keus was the anchor of one of the nation’s best defenses this season, allowing just 16 goals through 18 games. Keus also added four goals and five assists on the offensive end. The junior captain became the first Big Ten player to win this award in back-to-back years since the 2012-2013 season.

DeBerdine has started in all 18 games this season and has been a weapon for the Terps. The midfielder showcased her speed all season long, being a menace on both ends of the field. The freshman was third on the team in points with 19 on seven goals and five assists.
