Before the ACC-Tournament, the 2010 All-ACC team was announced and your Maryland Terrapins had 4 players represented on the team...the most of any ACC school. 2 more than #1 Virginia, 1 more than #5 Duke, and 1 more than #4 North Carolina.
Leading the way were Junior Tewaraaton Nominees Grant Catalino and Brett Schmidt. Schmidt's best game was this past weekend against UNC when he held 2010 ACC player of the year, Billy Bitter to just 1 shot and 0 points; the first time Bitter was held scoreless in 30 games.
Junior Ryan Young was also on the team. He is 7th in the nation with 2 assists per game which is good for 2nd in the conference. Senior Goalie Brian Phipps rounds out the All-ACC honorees who wear red and white.
Congratulations to all the Terps on the team and the rest of the team who play for the 9-3 Terps. Their average ranking of opponents is 13.8. They easily have the toughest strength of schedule in D-1 Lacrosse.
Seniors Fran Gormley, Dan Halayko, Dean Hart, Bryn Holmes, Brian Phipps, Adam Sear and Will Yeatman will all be honored before the game this Saturday against Fairfield.
One more note about the game from Patrick Fischers blog on the Maryland Athletics website: "Saturday's game will also be the Terps' Power In Pink game to help Under Armour in the fight against breast cancer. The Terps will not be wearing pink uniforms, which is the norm for many of the women's teams, but will sporting pink shoelaces and wristbands to show their support for those fighting breast cancer. All proceeds from sales of Under Armour's Power in Pink items go to national breast cancer charities."
