Hughes is poised to lead the up-and-coming program through the 2027 season.
The Golden Gophers racked up six straight points in the final set to quell the Terps' comeback efforts.
The Terps will be facing off with former star Katie Myers, who transferred over the offseason.
“It’s a totally new game, a new landscape this season."
In 2019, Myers racked up 273 kills for a .395 hitting percentage, the second-highest rate in program history.
Myers racked up the second-most kills on the team in 2019.
“It’s just such a privilege to make it to the top group,” Pritchard said.
How does Hughes like his coffee? “No additives. Always black.”
Nicole Alford, Katie Myers, Allegra Rivas and others missed time.
