COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Megan Douty and Cathy Reese were tabbed National Defender and Coach of the Year, respectively, Friday afternoon.

In addition to Douty, Brooke Griffin, Taylor Cummings, and Kelly McPartland were named All-Americans.

A Tewaaraton finalist, Douty was the ACC Defensive Player of the Year in 2014. The Fair Haven, N.J., product led a Maryland defense that held opponents to a league best 7.86 goals per game, even as the conference featured four other teams in the nation’s top 15 in scoring offense. She boasts 33 ground balls and 19 caused turnovers.

Griffin has helped quarterback the Terrapins’ dynamic attack with 78 points in 2014. The redshirt junior from Edgewater, Md., boasts 57 goals and 21 assists and was tabbed ACC Championship Most Valuable Player after guiding the Terps to wins against Virginia Tech, Virginia and Syracuse in the tournament.

Cummings – a Tewaaraton finalist and two-time IWLCA First Team All-American - leads Maryland with 116 draw controls, 59 goals, 35 ground balls and 30 caused turnovers and ranks second on the Terps’ offense with 23 assists and 82 points.

McPartland has been solid all season long for Maryland and joins Griffin and Cummings as Terps with 50-plus goals in 2014. The midfielder from Farmingdale, N.Y., boasts 57 goals and a team-high 31 assists and 88 points and, along with Beth Glaros, Cummings, and Douty, was named First Team All-ACC earlier this season.

Maryland faces Northwestern in the national semifinals Friday night at 7:30 p.m. at Unitas Stadium in Towson, Md.
