Terps WLAX earns top seed for fifth straight year

It was no surprise when the undefeated Maryland Terrapins earned the No. 1 overall seed in this year’s NCAA women’s lacrosse tournament. The 19-0 Terps extended their run as the top seed in the tournament to five straight years after repeating as Big Ten Champions.

Maryland leads the nation with 33 NCAA appearances and is also the winningest team in the history of the NCAA tournament with 65 postseason victories. Their 20 championship game appearances and 12 NCAA Championships are also top marks in the NCAA. They are making their 28th straight postseason appearance, a run that goes back to the 1990 tournament.

Maryland earned a bye into the second round and will host the winner of the first-round contest between Towson and High Point. That first round game will take place on Friday at the Field Hockey & Lacrosse Complex at College Park. Maryland will play the winner on Sunday, May 14.

Towson received an at-large bid into the NCAA Tournament. After winning the CAA regular season championship, Towson was stunned by Elon in the semifinals of their conference tournament, but victories over multiple ranked opponents during the regular season and their hold in the national rankings throughout the season was enough to get them a spot in the tournament field.

Towson’s game against High Point will mark the first time in history the two teams will play against each other.

Navy secured their unlikely berth into the NCAA Tournament after upsetting the top-seeded Loyola Greyhounds in Baltimore in the finals of the Patriot League tournament held at Ridley Athletic Complex. Navy will play seventh-seeded Penn in the first round on Friday, May 12.

Should the Mids advance they would play the winner the first round game between Colorado and Massachusetts.

You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
