Maryland’s field hockey team will welcome Pasadena, Md. native Margot Lawn as a transfer for the 2021 season.
Lawn, a sophomore from the University of Louisville, looks to build on the beginnings of a stellar collegiate career in College Park. In her first two years with the Cardinal program, she racked up eight goals and two assists, helping Louisville to a 24-8 record between the 2019 and 2020 seasons.
Terps field hockey head coach Missy Meharg welcomed the team’s newest player in a press release from the Athletic Media Relations Department, calling her homecoming, “Fun and exciting.”
Per the Athletic Department’s release, the sophomore believes that Maryland, “Is a place where I can continue to develop as a player and where I can continue to reach my academic and athletic goals.” Lawn also praised the program’s stellar coaching staff, saying the group creates, “Honest, life-long relationships with their players.”
Lawn joins a strong field hockey program at UMD, as the Terps won the Big Ten Conference regular-season title in 2019, a season in which they gave up only 18 goals in 21 games. Having been a member of the U.S. Under-17, Under-19, and now Under-21 national teams, Lawn will look to lead the Terps to that title again in 2021.
