Maryland women's lacrosse midfielder Kali Hartshorn earned national and conference accolades on Tuesday, while midfielder Zoe Stukenberg was tabbed Big Ten Defensive Player of the Week.
Hartshorn was named Inside Lacrosse Women's National Rookie of the Week for the third time this year. She also garnered Big Ten Freshman of the Week recognition for the third straight week and the fifth time overall.
Against Penn State on Thursday, Hartshorn posted four goals and an assist while controlling four draws as the No. 1 Terps beat the No. 5 Nittany Lions, 16-14, to secure a share of the Big Ten regular season title. In her past four games, she has tallied 19 goals, three assists and 11 draw controls.
The Allentown, New Jersey, native is the second-highest goal scorer on the team behind attacker Megan Whittle. She has notched 42 goals and maintained the highest shooting percentage among starters at nearly 55 percent.
The only true freshman starter on the team, Hartshorn has also been crucial for the Terps in the circle, controlling 71 draws. Against Penn State attacker Madison Carter, who ranks top-10 in the nation in draw wins, Hartshorn helped the Terps best the Nittany Lions, 17-15, in that department.
Stukenberg, meanwhile, contributed to the victory with two goals and four assists. However, she earned honors for her defensive contributions, as she picked up two ground balls, caused three turnovers and corralled four draw controls.
When the Terps finish their regular season slate at No. 15 Northwestern on Thursday, Hartshorn and Stukenberg can help the squad win the Big Ten title outright with a victory.
