A tour around the non-football fall sports at Maryland…

The Terrapins were without sophomores Maxine Fluharty and Katie Gerzabek and junior Ali McEvoy, who were all competing for the U.S. under-21 team at the Junior Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico. They won bronze in the Pan Am Games and clinched a bid to the 2013 Junior World Cup.

Maryland will be at full strength for Friday evening’s game at No. 7 Virginia (6 p.m.). The Terrapins host Temple on Sunday at 1 p.m.

The Terrapins travel to College of Charleston on Saturday at 7 p.m.

Women’s soccer

The Maryland women’s soccer team improved to No. 10 in the Soccer America rankings, and first place in the ACC, with a 2-1 win at No. 13 Wake Forest on Sunday.
