COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Three field hockey stars with three national championships to their credit were honored by the M Club and Terrapin Club on Sunday at the 13th annual President's Club Brunch at the Riggs Alumni Center.
Seniors Susie Rowe and Sarah Scholl and redshirt-junior Alicia Grater were on hand as the awards were presented. Rowe, who completed her degree in December, returned from her native England for the event.
Rowe, who set Maryland records this season for goals and points tallied and earned the Honda Award as the nation's top field hockey player, was named the Sue Tyler Award recipient along with women's basketball's Kristi Toliver. The award is presented annually to the outstanding female student-athlete at Maryland.
Rowe's season earned her ACC Defensive Player of the Year recognition, and she was named the Most Valuable Player after the Terps claimed victory at the ACC Tournament.
Scholl and Grater, who each started all 24 games for Maryland in 2008, were recognized for their community service efforts with the Intercollegiate Athletics Community Service Award. Scholl, who also earned a postgraduate scholarship from the ACC for her outstanding efforts in the classroom, tallied a career-high seven goals in 2008. Grater, who started every game in goal for Maryland, was one of the top goalies in the nation, ceding just 1.24 goals per game.
Scholl was also honored with an ACC Community Service Award and was recognized with an Academic Achievement Award at the President's Cup Banquet.
