New this year for the Maryland men's lacrosse team are weekly award given by the team captains and the coaching staff.
For the Bellarmine game, junior close defenseman Ryder Bohlander was selected for the Coaches' Award, while sophomore midfielder Jake Bernhardt was the pick for the Captains' Award. Bohlander made his second career start in the season opener at Bellarmine and led the defense with a career-best two caused turnovers and a groundball. Bernhardt made his first career start vs. the Knights and set career-bests with three points and two goals.
Senior midfielder Will Yeatman was a double winner following the Terps' 15-13 come-from-behind win at Georgetown. Yeatman was chosen for the Captains' Award and was co-recipient of the Coaches' Award with redshirt junior Brian Farrell. Yeatman had his first hat trick as a Terp vs. the Hoyas, scoring all three goals during Maryland's decisive 7-0 run that spanned the third and fourth quarters. Farrell was easily the best defensive player on the field vs. the Hoyas. The long pole, who missed nearly all of 2009 with a rib and internal injuries, returned to his All-America form and set career-bests with 10 groundballs and six caused turnovers. He also contributed to the offense with an assist on Scott LaRue's second quarter goal.
