The Maryland field hockey squad closed out a 15-2 regular season with a 10-0 win over VCU on a senior night in which all five seniors scored. The victory means Maryland finishes the regular season ranked #1. They have the top seed in the ACC tournament and are on a roll going into the post-season.
Senior back Susie Rowe, a UK import, had two goals and two assists. The performance led her to a second ACC Player of the Week award in 2008.
The game marked the end to a dominant regular season for the team in which they beat opponents by more than five goals a total of eight times. The team also recorded eight shutouts. They are getting it done on both sides of the field, and finished the year with six wins in a row. Many of those wins came against big programs including ODU, Penn, and UNC.
The Terps should be playing home games in the NCAA tournament on 11/15 and 11/16. Cheers to Susie Rowe, Katie O’Donnell, and the rest of the team on a great season. We look forward to a run at the title.
