Scouting The Terps
·The Terps open their season Sunday afternoon with 1 p.m. showdown against William & Mary at the Field Hockey & Lacrosse Complex.

2012 Maryland Terrapins: 0-0, 0-0 ACC (IWLCA #2, Inside Lacrosse #2)
Roster Schedule Statistics Digital Media Guide

· The Terps are ecstatic to have a healthy Karri Ellen Johnson back in the lineup in 2012. The senior captain and two-time IWLCA First Team All-American missed 12 games last season due to injury. She is poised to resume her vital role in Maryland's offense. Maryland will also rely on returning starters Kristy Black and Alex Aust. Black will serve as a captain in 2012 after scoring 31 goals as a junior. Aust tallied 42 points as a sophomore in her first year as a starter.

· Katie Schwarzmann, the 2011 IWLCA National Midfielder of the Year and Tewaaraton finalist, returns to lead the Terps through the middle. Widely known as the fastest player in the nation, Schwarzmann led Maryland in goals last season with 65. Beth Glaros finished her freshman season with a bang in 2011, scoring a game-high four goals in the national title match against Northwestern. She played in all 23 games for the Terps, tallying 22 goals.

· The defense will have three new starters in 2012 after the departure of Katie Gallagher, Brittany Poist and Sara Cooper. Iliana Sanza, a second team all-region pick as a sophomore, is the lone returning starter for Maryland. While the unit will be young, don't expect it to be any less disciplined. Sanza will lead the back line as a junior and, along with four-year starter goalie Brittany Dipper, will do the majority of the organizing.

· Dipper, the 2011 IWLCA National Goalie of the Year, is back for her final season in College Park. She has been tabbed to three straight ACC championship all-tournament teams while leading Maryland to conference titles in each season since her arrival.
