Top-ranked women’s lacrosse trumps No. 2 North Carolina

Your semi-weekly roundup of the non-revenue sports at Maryland.

Women’s Lacrosse

The top-ranked Terrapins clinched at least a share of the ACC regular season title after beating No. 2 North Carolina 14-13. Maryland (14-0, 4-0 ACC) was led by senior Katie Schwarzmann and freshman Taylor Cummings, who recorded nine total goals. Kasey Howard made 11 saves in goal. Maryland also set a new attendance record at the Field Hockey & Lacrosse Complex (2,347).

The Terps have clinched the top seed for the ACC tournament at the end of this month. They’re in action against Princeton on Wednesday at 7 p.m.

Women’s basketball

Junior Alyssa Thomas was named an All-American by the Women’s Basketball Coaches Association this weekend. She was honored at the Final Four in New Orleans and was voted one of the nation’s top 10 players. Thomas is the seventh Terrapin to earn the honor. Last year, she was the first Maryland player to be honored as a WBCA All-American as a sophomore. Only Crystal Langhorne and Kristi Toliver were honored twice in their careers.

Men’s Lacrosse

No. 1 Maryland took care of business Friday night, rallying for an 11-8 victory at Navy behind four points from Mike Chanenchuk. The Post’s Christian Swezey was there.

Next up for the Terps is the 110th meeting against No. 11 Johns Hopkins on Saturday at 3 p.m. inside Byrd Stadium. It also marks the 1,000th Maryland game ever in the program’s 88-year history.

Track and field

Julie Sinkovitz had a strong run in the 800 meters to pace the Terps at the Florida Relays. At the Duke Invitational, Moriah Young won the women’s hammer throw, while Pat Cole placed fourth in the men’s field. Becky Yep also ran 17:08.99 in the 5,000 meters, good enough for third overall.


Maryland finished its season with the second-best score in program history in NCAA competition, finishing fourth in the NCAA Regionals in Gainsville, Fla. The fourth-place finish is the program’s best since 2003.
