Adams Earns Honors for First Week of Lacrosse Action

March 6, 2001

COLLEGE PARK, Md. - University of Maryland midfielder Jen Adams has garnered this week's ACC Women's Lacrosse Player of the Week, after leading the Terrapins to wins over ACC rivals North Carolina and Duke last weekend.

Adams led the Terps in scoring with 15 points in two ACC match-ups last week. In an 18-11 win over No. 4 Duke on Friday, Adams tallied four goals and six assists for 10 points. Her six assists tied a career single-game high and moved her into a tie for third on the NCAA career list with 124. The 10-point effort was the second-best of her career, tying the 10 points she scored against Princeton in the 2000 NCAA Championship game.

Against North Carolina on Sunday, Adams scored five crucial goals, leading the Terrapins to an 8-7 win over the fifth-ranked Tar Heels. With the five goals, Adams became Maryland's all-time leader for goals scored with 188, breaking the mark of 187 set by Kelly Amonte (1993-96).

In addition to her recognition from the ACC, Adams was also named National Player of the Week by Inside Lacrosse magazine for her efforts.
