Maryland field hockey star Katie O'Donnell is honored

For her role in leading Maryland’s field hockey team to their first 18-0 regular season and ACC championship during the 2009-2010 season, senior Katie O’Donnell has been named the Women’s Sports Foundation’s sportswoman of the year.

O’Donnell also led the NCAA in assists and points last season while breaking the ACC’s career assist record.

O’Donnell, the 2009 Honda Sports Award Winner, received her latest honor in ceremonies Tuesday at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York.

Currently a starter for the U.S. senior national team, she has competed in more than 40 international games. Former Maryland lacrosse player Caitlyn McFadden was among the nominees, as was USA Softball’s Jennie Finch, Olympic hockey gold medalist Meghan Agosta, and Betsey Armstrong, goalkeeper for the U.S. Water Polo team.

In other Terp news:

Maryland Madness (formerly Midnite Madness) is tomorrow - 10/15. No tickets are required - its first come, first serve. Parking is free. Look here - - for more info.

There's rumored to be a surprise at Maryland Madness. Speculation has ranged from rapper Wale performing to Vasquez's number being raised to the rafters. I'm thinking the former.

Maryland's likely #1 recruiting target, Nick Faust (with another target Adjehi Baru), will be visiting UMD 10/22 and announcing his decision 10/28 on ESPNU.

Maryland was ranked #38 in Dickie V's top 40 to begin the season. I'm sure I don't have to tell you who #1 is.

MD @ Clemson (noon startime) will air on Channel 5 for those of you in DC and Channel 13 for those of you in Baltimore. For those of you outside those areas, it's available on or thru ESPN Gameplan.

As of this morning Vegas has the line at Clemson -15 and the over/under at 47.5. I just don't see the Terps losing by more than two touchdowns.

Is she related to Christine O'Donnell?

C'mon Fushezzi, they would never retire someone's number during midnight madness. Vasquez will get his number retired when Memphis is in town to play the Wiz, either this year or in a future season.
