Maryland women’s lacrosse attacker Brindi Griffin was named Big Ten Preseason Player of the Year Thursday with just over a week before the team kicks off its season.

The senior captain from Edgewater, Maryland, scored 44 goals — nearly doubling her total from a season prior — and tallied a team-high 24 assists for last year’s national champions.

Griffin has big shoes to fill with the departures of Jen Giles, Erica Evans and Caroline Steele having since graduated — the aforementioned trio paced the team in goals last season.

The senior will have the opportunity to build off her hat trick against Boston College in the national championship and her NCAA All-Tournament Team honors when the Terps travel to Fairax, Virginia, Feb. 8 to open their season against George Mason.
