Photos: Maryland Avenges 2021 Loss to Duke, Reaches NCAA Quarterfinals


Shaylan Ahearn controlled nine draws and scored twice, and Libby May scored five goals with one assist, though it was truly a complete effort in second-seeded Maryland’s 19-6 win over Duke, who knocked Maryland out of the NCAA tournament in the second round a year ago. Maryland's Big Ten championship won the previous weekend was the school's first since 2018 and this year's edition of the Terps are relishing the rise back to the top for the perpetual power that slipped a notch in the shortened 2020 season and last year. “We’ve worked so hard the past three years to get to this point,” May said.
