This is the Maryland Minute, a short story followed by a roundup of Terps-related news.
Maryland field hockey senior forward Bibi Donraadt earned her first career Big Ten Offensive Player of the Week honor the conference announced on Tuesday.
Donraadt played a key role in the No. 9 Maryland’s victory over No. 12 Duke. The Netherlands native scored two goals within four minutes of each other in the first quarter to help secure the Terps’ 4-0 win over the Blue Devils.
Before her pair of goals against Duke, Donraadt assisted a game-tying goal as Maryland eventually fell to No. 7 Boston College.
Donraadt currently leads the teams in goals and assists with three each and has a team-high nine points.
