Maryland men’s lacrosse attacker Jared Bernhardt and defender Brett Makar earned Big Ten honors this week.
Bernhardt was named Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week after breaking the all-time program record for career goals. The five goals the Florida native scored on April in then-No. 3 Maryland’s 17-10 victory over then-No. 19 Penn State broke Matt Rambo’s previous record of 155 goals.
Bernhardt is the second player in Big Ten history to earn the weekly honor four times in a single season.
Makar earned Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week for the first time after causing a both career-high three turnovers and grabbing a career-high five ground balls in the victory over the Nittany Lions. He helped hold Penn State to just eight goals before the final two minutes of the game.
Headed into that matchup, the Nittany Lions averaged 10 goals per game and Makar along with the rest of the Terrapin defense did not let Penn State raise that average.
All seven times the Big Ten has given out weekly conference honors this season, at least one Terp has made the list.
