2006 NCAA Champions
For the first time in school history, the Terrapins successfully defend their national title with a 1-0 win over Wake Forest. It was their fifth NCAA Championship crown and fourth under head coach Missy Meharg. Senior Emily Trycinski scored the game's only goal at 30:08 to defeat top-ranked Wake Forest, 1-0, on their home field at Kentner Stadium.
Meharg went on to receive National Coach of the Year for a sixth time. In the semifinals, the Terps needed a stroke off to get past Connecticut. Goalkeeper Christina Restivo came off the bench to save two penalty strokes to help Maryland advance. Paula Infante was selected the Honda Award winner for the second-straight year; she is the first Terrapin field hockey player to earn first team All-America honors four-consecutive years. She garners ACC Defensive Player of the Year nods for a second time, as well.
