Sommers anchored Maryland's defense as a four-year starter and led the team with a career-high 30 caused turnovers. She also added five goals and four assists, and contributed 44 ground balls.
Collins was among Maryland's offensive leaders all season, leading the team with 23 assists and finishing second on the team with 43 points. Collins was also among the team's leaders in ground balls (38), draw controls (23) and caused turnovers (17). Cox scored a goal in all but one game this season and led the team in goals scored with 35. She also became just the 24th player in Maryland history to score 100 career goals this season.
