Do You Believe In Terrapins? YES!

In 1975, Frank Urso led the Maryland Terrapins to their second NCAA Lacrosse Championship (1973, 1975.) Urso was a magician with a stick and to this day he is our favorite lacrosse player.

Following 1975, the Terps had made it to Championship Weekend – the Final Four of lacrosse and come away empty.

The tenth time was the charm.

Be the Best! Maryland’s Erases Title Drought In 9-6 Win over Ohio State

Foxborough, Mass. — Maryland men’s lacrosse’s title drought is finally over.

In a hard-fought contest, the Terrapins beat Ohio State, 9-6, in this year’s Division I Championship Game, held at Gillette Stadium. The win erases a 42-year walk in the wilderness for the state of Maryland’s flagship program.

Maryland senior defenseman Tim Muller earned Most Outstanding Player honors, leading a defense that let up a combined 14 goals over the weekend’s two games. Goalie Dan Morris stepped up with 11 saves against Ohio State in Monday’s title game, while face-off midfielder Jon Garino did a yeoman’s job at X, winning 10 of his 14 attempts to help Maryland control time of possession.

The men’s team championship follows a day after the Terrapin Women notched another championship on their lacrosse sticks:

Perfection: Maryland Fights Off Boston College, Caps Undefeated Season With National Title

It seemed like the game was over before it begun. The officials awarded Maryland the first draw of the game, and freshman Kali Hartshorn finished a pass from senior Zoe Stukenberg to give the Terrapins a 1-0 lead over Boston College 10 seconds into the NCAA Championship game.

Before the day was over, BC would give Maryland a run for its money, led by junior Kenzie Kent, who could do no wrong with five goals and five assists and was named the NCAA Tournament Most Outstanding Player.

In the end, the Terrapins are undefeated. Veterans and newcomers combined to be perfect in 2017. Caroline Steele led Maryland in its final effort, its 23rd win. The sophomore tied a career-high with six goals, adding an assist for good measure.
