WASHINGTON - The No. 15/16 Georgetown University women's lacrosse squad (8-6, 4-3 BIG EAST) will close out nonconference play at the No. 5/5 University of Maryland (16-3) in a Wednesday evening matchup at Field Hockey & Lacrosse Complex. The opening draw is scheduled for 7 p.m.

Last weekend, the Hoyas fell to the No. 7/6 University of Notre Dame, 7-6, in double overtime at Multi-Sport Field. The Blue & Gray had opportunities during the extra stanzas, but struggled to find the back of the cage. Sophomore midfielder Hannah Franklin (Phoenix, Md./McDonogh School) led the way with two goals to her credit.

Junior midfielder Sophia Thomas (Lutherville, Md./Maryvale Prep) and freshman attacker Caroline Tarzian (Garden City, N.Y./Garden City) are currently leading the team in scoring with 41 and 35 points, respectively. Junior midfielder Kelsi Bozel (Hunt Valley, Md./Notre Dame Prep) and junior attacker Dina Jackson (Potomac, Md./Bullis) are third and fourth with 33 and 31 points on the year.

Senior defender Kelly Barnes (St. David's, Pa./Radnor) has 34 ground balls and freshman defender Megan Marinelli (Northport, N.Y./Northport) leads the squad with 23 caused turnovers. Bozel has notched 35 draw controls. Sophomore goalkeeper Barb Black (Ruxton, Md./St. Paul's School for Girls) has tallied a squad-best 87 saves including a career-high 12 in the loss to Notre Dame.

The Terps topped North Carolina, 14-10, to capture its fourth-straight ACC championship in Durham on Monday night. Katie Schwarzmann garnered most valuable player honors after tying a tournament record with 11 goals in three games in the championship.



Wednesday's match is Maryland's fourth in six days and its last of the regular season. The Terps will honor seniors Kristy Black, Brittany Dipper, Karri Ellen Johnson and Bria Phillips prior to the opening draw.
