Apologies for the delayed non-revenue recap. As the team did have games through Tuesday, I updated how each team played and what is required to make a late push for the ACC championship.

  • Men’s golf did a phenomenal job gaining some momentum in their stellar performance in the ODU/OBX Intercollegiate in NC, finishing second of the 18 total teams. The team finished one stroke better than Hartford and nine back from VCU. Victor Fox, tied for eighth in the tournament, led the Terps shooting 211 overall. The Terps will look to improve throughout the winter off-season, as their next tournament will be held March 10-11 in South Carolina for the USC Aiken Palmetto Classic.
  • Men’s soccer scored with just under 15 minutes of play to beat Drexel 1-0 at home last night. A goal by reserve senior Sunny Jane gave the Terps the needed goal to get back in the win column after their heart-breaking 4-3 loss on Saturday to Wake Forest. The loss gave the Terps sole possession of third place in the ACC, one game back from both Notre Dame and Wake Forest. With just three games remaining in the regular season against Virginia Tech, NC State, and Syracuse, the Terps have a great opportunity to be crowned ACC champions. The November 2nd showdown between Notre Dame and Wake Forest will have severe implications on the ACC standings. The Terps have a couple days of rest before they travel to Syracuse on Saturday.
  • Women’s soccer split their road trip in Florida this weekend, beating Miami 1-0 and losing to third-ranked Florida State 2-1. The Terps are currently ninth in the ACC standings, with just two points between sixth-place and tenth-place. With key games against, Syracuse, Pittsburgh, and Boston College, the Terps have an opportunity to move up in the standings to fifth if the season plays out the Terps way. With such a young team, this year’s performance should give hope for the future. The Terps will travel to Syracuse for their final road game on Thursday and will host Boston College on Sunday.
  • Cross-country finished 16th of the 25 teams this weekend in the Princeton Invitational. The Terps top performer was Taylor Hackett, who finished 2:49 behind the leader and 48th overall. The Terps regular season concluded in New Jersey as the ACC championship is November 1st in North Carolina.
  • The field hockey team was able to knock off fourth-ranked Syracuse this weekend 2-1 in overtime, but fell short at home against 15th-ranked Old Dominion 3-2 in their second matchup of the season. Unlike their 3-0 victory against ODU in September, the Terps missed a lot of great opportunities, but played tough in their loss. Sunday’s loss is the team’s first of the season, giving the team a 9-1 record against top-25 teams. The Terps will certainly look to get back on track as they host both Virginia and Georgetown this weekend in College Park.
  • The Terps’ volleyball team experienced two matches on opposite ends of the spectrum, losing to Syracuse 3-0 and beating Boston College 3-0. Despite the loss against Syracuse, all games were very close, losing 30-28, 25-19, and 29-27. As the Terps fall to 2-5 in ACC play, the Terps still have plenty of games left to make up some ground. Their quest for success begins this weekend as they take on two of the top four teams in the ACC in North Carolina and North Carolina State on the road.
