Maryland men’s soccer still unbeaten, and other Terps notes

A trip around the non-football sports at Maryland.

The Terrapins men’s soccer team remained unbeaten and atop the Soccer America top 25 with a 3-2 road win over the College of Charleston on Saturday. Maryland is now 8-0-1, 3-0-0 ACC. Twelve players have scored this season.

NOTE: The game time for Friday’s game against Virginia at Ludwig Field has been changed to 7 p.m. The game will be televised on Fox Soccer Channel.


Maryland senior Olivia Wagner scored the game-tying and game-winning goals on free kicks, while senior Danielle Hubka added the insurance goal in Maryland’s 3-1 win over then-No. 3 Virginia on Thursday, the Terrapins’ second win over a top 10 opponent this season. But Maryland stumbled in its next game, a 1-0 loss at then-16 Virginia Tech on Sunday.

The Terrapins (8-3-2, 4-1-1 ACC), currently ranked No. 9 by Soccer America, host Francis Marion on Wednesday at 7 and then travel to North Carolina State on Sunday at 1.

Ashleigh Crutcher had a career-high 26 kills in a five-set loss to Virginia Tech on Friday. It was the most kills for a Maryland volleyball player since Jade Brown had 27 against North Carolina on Nov. 25, 2006. The Terrapins rebounded with a four-set win over Virginia on Sunday. Crutcher had a match-high 18 kills and a career-best 19 digs, while freshman Mackenzie Dagostino tallied her team-best sixth double-double of the season with 35 assists and 11 digs.

The Terrapins (10-6, 2-3) visit Duke on Friday and Wake Forest on Saturday.


The Terrapins fell, 3-2, to Virginia on Friday but bounced back with a 6-0 win over Temple on Sunday in College Park. Five players scored and redshirt senior goalkeeper Brooke Cabrera notched a career-high six saves in the second half. Maryland, tied for fifth in the country with Virginia, then lost to No. 4 Princeton, 3-2, on Tuesday.

The Terrapins (8-3, 2-1) host No. 24 Duke on Saturday at 1.


Maryland placed 25th out of 70 teams at the Paul Short Invitational in Lehigh, Pa., on Friday. Sophomore Myah Hicks crossed the line first for the Terrapins for the second week in a row, recording a time of 21 minutes 58 seconds for the six-kilometer course.


Juliet Vongphoumy shot an even-par 213 (71-69-73) to finish third individually and propel Maryland to a second-place team finish at the Starmount Classic in Greensboro, N.C.


Eight Maryland alums, including men’s basketball great Juan Dixon, will be inducted into the University of Maryland Athletics Hall of Fame on Friday at Riggs Alumni Center. Tickets for the event can be purchased for $85 each, with tables for 10 people available for $800. Tickets can be purchased from the ‘M’ Club office at 301-314-2619.
