The Terrapins’ season ended in heartbreaking fashion, losing to Georgetown on penalty kicks during the College Cup semifinals, their first College Cup appearance since 2008.

Forward Patrick Mullins, however, still has a shot to take home some serious hardware. The junior was named a finalist for the 2012 MAC Hermann Trophy, college soccer’s highest individual honor, after being named the ACC offensive player of the year and notching team-highs in goals (17), assists (10) and points (44). 

The MAC trophy will be presented Jan. 11  in St. Louis. Mullins is joined by Notre Dame forward Ryan Finley and Creighton midfielder Jose Gomez as finalists.

Teammates John Stertzer and London Woodberry also were named third-team all-Americans. 


The 17th-ranked wrestling team split its matches this week, losing to Pitt 23-12 but beating American 23-21 for the seventh straight season. 

Geoffrey Alexander, ranked 14th nationally at 133 pounds, was named the ACC wrestler of the week. At Pitt, Alexander and Jimmy Sheptock (10th at 184) won decisions over nationally ranked opponents, while Alexander won handily against American.


Sophomore Ashleigh Crutcher earned AVCA honorable mention honors this week after starting in all 32 matches this season and leading the team with 443 kills, the sixth-highest season total in school history. Crutcher, whose 295 kills in ACC play ranked second in the conference, is the first Terp to be recognized by the AVCA since Rachel Wagener earned all-region honors in 2005.
