It’s been quite the freshman season for No. 6 Maryland field hockey forward Hope Rose.
She scored eight goals, five of which came in Big Ten play, a mark that led Big Ten freshmen and was good for second-most on the Terps’ roster this year.
And after racking up three Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors over the course of the season, Rose was named Big Ten Freshman of the Year on Wednesday.

Rose is the twelfth Maryland player to earn the honor, with Bibi Donraadt being the most recent recipient in 2018. Rose was also named to the All-Big Ten Second Team.
She wasn’t the only Terp to earn a conference accolade either.
Fifth-year midfielder Brooke DeBerdine was named to the All-Big Ten First Team for the second straight season.
DeBerdine serves as Maryland’s captain, and in her final year, has set a program record for career games started, becoming the first Terp to eclipse 100 games on the team sheet.
Rose and DeBerdine figure to be important roleplayers for Maryland as its postseason play begins this week. The Terps travel to Piscataway, New Jersey, for the Big Ten tournament, where sixth-seeded Maryland will meet No. 3 seed Penn State Thursday at 5 p.m.
