Previewing the Terps: By the Numbers

2 – Daria Panova’s years as Maryland’s head coach. A standout player at Oregon as a a collegian, Panova steadied the ship in her first season in College Park, providing a clear and consistent demeanor for her young team. The Russia native also made history in her opening campaign, helping the Terps to only their second win over ACC rival Duke since 1998. The Terps took down the No. 11 Blue Devils, 4-3, in a thrilling late season match.
4 – The number of newcomers the Terp roster contains this season. Freshmen Kristina Hovsepyan, Olivia Gaudreault, Alexandra Stanova and Cassandre Thebault added a new energy to Panova’s outfit in the fall. The young Terps will be relied to perform in important matches come the spring season, especially during the ACC slate.
9 – Points that Welma Luus notched for the Maryland field hockey team during the fall. The South Africa native played both sports for the Terps in the fall and was a spark off the bench for a squad that reached the final four. Luus missed all of last season with a shoulder injury, but provided the Terps with valuable leadership as a volunteer assistant coach.
