COLLEGE PARK, Md. - Freshman goalkeeper Brittany Dipper was named WomensLax.com and WomensLacrosse.com Rookie of the Week after an impressive showing at the 2009 ACC Tournament.
Dipper was named to the ACC Championship All-Tournament team after notching double-digit save performances against both Virginia and Duke. Dipper led the Terps with a career-high 12 saves and added two ground balls as Maryland topped Virginia 15-7 in the semifinals. Dipper's ten saves proved to be a difference-maker as the Terps narrowly topped Duke, 12-11, in the title game. The freshman keeper hails from Clarksboro, N.J. and has played in all of Maryland's games in 2009, starting 16 of 18 and notching 91 saves.
The Terps (18-0) close out the 2009 regular season in College Park on Saturday when they take on the Princeton Tigers. Maryland has secured the ACC's automatic bid to the NCAA tournament and await the 2009 NCAA Women's Lacrosse Selection Show on Sunday for its seeding and first-round opponent.
