Megan Whittle is now Maryland’s all-time goal leader.

With her 268th career goal just 5:44 into the Terps’ 20-5 rout of Ohio State on Sunday, the senior captain passed all-time great Jen Adams to take possession of the career goals record. Whittle finished with a hat trick to push her total to 270, earning her Brine/US Lacrosse Player of the Week honors.  

“When I committed to Maryland, I always dreamed of this moment,” Whittle said. “I couldn’t have done it without my teammates and my coaching staff. I’m just so excited about this.” 

Whittle’s record comes after facing a gauntlet of teams – and faceguards – in both Big Ten and non-conference play over her four seasons. As of April 8, No. 3 Maryland boasted the No. 1 RPI.

Whittle tied Adams’ record in the Terps’ 11-10 win over Princeton on Tuesday with another hat trick. Her third goal sparked a comeback run in the second half after Maryland trailed 7-4 at the break.

“Congratulations, Megan Whittle,” Adams said. “What an accomplishment. I could’ve seen this coming four years ago when you stepped foot into College Park. It’s been such an honor and a privilege getting to see you score goal after goal on route to breaking this Maryland goals record. Best news for Terps’ fans is you’re not done yet. Keep putting them away.”
