Maryland women’s soccer goalkeeper Rachel Egyed was named Third Team All Big-Ten for the second consecutive season Friday.
The redshirt senior tied for the conference lead with 93 saves and 5.2 saves per game, and Egyed’s .830 save percentage ranked second behind only Northwestern goalkeeper Mackenzie Wood.
Her 93-save total was tied for 27th in the nation.
Egyed’s signature performance of the season came against Wood and the Wildcats, when the goalkeeper fended off 21 shots and made eight saves in the Terps’ 2-1 upset victory over then-No. 14 Northwestern on Senior Day. It was Maryland’s first ranked win in over four years.
After an eight-save showing in a 1-1 draw with UCF during nonconference play, Egyed earned All-Big Ten Goalkeeper of the Week honors.
She made a career-best 12 saves in the Terps’ 2-1 loss to Michigan on Oct. 18, which was the best mark by a Maryland goalkeeper since 2006.
Egyed finished her career with the seventh-most saves (222) in program history, the eighth-most goalie minutes played (4106:29) and ninth-best goals against average (1.45).
Despite Egyed’s consistency in net, the Terps limped to a 4-10-5 overall record and a 2-7-2 Big Ten mark, failing to make the conference tournament for the fifth straight year. However, it was the first time Maryland has won multiple conference games since 2014.
