Previewing Maryland’s 2019 men’s college lacrosse schedule

Will the Terrapins get to Championship Weekend for the sixth consecutive season?

Matt Dewkett

The Maryland Terrapins are the 71st team in our 2019 schedule preview series and the sixth and final team from the Big Ten. The Terrapins finished 14-4 in 2018 and 4-1 in Big Ten play. Maryland lost to Johns Hopkins in the Big Ten championship, but defeated Robert Morris and Cornell to get to Memorial Day Weekend for the fifth straight year where they fell to Duke in the semifinals.

Here’s their entire 2019 schedule:

Circle These Dates

  • 2/9 (vs. Richmond): This will be the first time the two programs will face each other. I’ll be really interested to see how this goes as the Spiders have shown that they can compete with the very best. They may not put up wins, but they sure are a tough opponent to take on.
  • 3/3 (at Notre Dame): Former ACC opponents (for a year) continue their annual meeting, with this year’s matchup taking place in South Bend. The Fighting Irish kept it close last season despite never taking a lead. Ryder Garnsey had the first of many big games when he didn’t start, putting up four goals and an assist. I’d be shocked if he isn’t a starter on attack this season.
  • 3/31 (vs. Penn State): You can easily argue that the Big Ten is the best conference in college lacrosse. All six teams finished above .500 last season, and Michigan is showing signs of seriously competing in the conference. The Nittany Lions had high expectations last season even without Grant Ament. He’s back, along with a healthy Gerard Arceri. This could be an early conference upset for Penn State.
  • 4/14 (at Rutgers): It’s very difficult to beat the Scarlet Knights in New Jersey. But it did happen a few times last year, and the Terrapins needed triple overtime to beat Rutgers in 2017. Adam Charalambides is hoping to be back and healthy this season and team up with Kieran Mullins. Max Edelmann also returns in goal to backstop the Rutgers defense.
  • 4/27 (vs. Johns Hopkins): Despite the Big Ten changing up their schedule a little bit, Hopkins-Maryland still wraps up the regular season. As it should. The Terps took last year’s thriller in triple overtime at Homewood Field thanks to Will Snider, but did fall to the Blue Jays in the Big Ten title game.
