This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.

No. 10 Maryland women’s lacrosse defender Emma Schettig and No. 7 Maryland men’s lacrosse freshman goalie Logan McNaney were each named Big Ten Freshman of the Week, respectively, Tuesday.

It is the first weekly honors for the Terps in their young careers, and it is the first time a Maryland women’s lacrosse player has received a weekly honor this season.

In Maryland women’s lacrosse’s loss to Syracuse this past week, Schettig picked up a game-high five ground balls — the most by a Terp this season and most by a freshman since 2016 — forced three turnovers and caused two draw controls.

The Maryland defense, led by Schettig, totaled 14 turnovers against the Orange in a 10-5 loss. The Woodbine, Maryland, native has 13 ground balls on the season — the most on the Terps and second most in the conference. She also has tallied six caused turnovers through four games, which is the second most on the team.

In his first start of the year, McNaney racked up a 10-save effort against then-No. 5 Notre Dame and held it to a season-low nine goals.

He was the first true freshman to start in goalie for the Terps since Brian Phipps in February 2017.
