Congratulations to the Maryland field hockey team for winning the ACC Championship this weekend. The Terps did it with impressive wins over #9 UVA and #2 Wake Forest, further justifying their #1 RPI ranking. Once again the Terps were led Susie Rowe, who earned tournament MVP honors. Their first NCAA Tournament games will be this Saturday and Sunday in College Park.
There is no secret formula or magic trick. Each person has to look at themselves and at each one of their teammates and make the commitment to find it, whether tangible or not.
The Terps accomplished their first goal for this season, but at this point this team will not be satisfied with anything less than a National Championship. If Sarah Scholl’s blog post from November 8th is any indication, this team is as serious as a heart attack about winning it all this year. I’ve been feeling the mojo all year with this squad, and I can’t wait to see how this story ends.
