The Terps field hockey squad added another trophy to the case this weekend with a 3-2 win over UVA to capture the ACC Championship. Katie O’Donnell, the best player in the nation, captured the tournament MVP award. The Terps had to beat #6 Wake Forest and #3 UVA on their way to the title. With the two wins the Terps are now 20-0 on the season and they are likely to capture the #1 seed in the ACC Tournament.
“Dominant” is the only word I can think of to describe this team. Dominant. The team has six shutouts this season and they have outscored their opponents 96-24. That means they are scoring four times as many goals as their opponents for those of you fellow English majors.
I love this team. If I had one free minute of time in my life I’d go to their games. Maybe I’ll go to a game one day soon. In the meantime I’ll follow them from afar and use the power of the blogosphere to broadcast my cheers. Go Terps Field Hockey!
