Saturday Marks the 1000th Game in the 88 Year History of Maryland Lacrosse

1000th Game & Alumni Reunion
• Saturday’s game vs. Johns Hopkins will be the 1000th game in the 88-year history of the Maryland men’s lacrosse program. In appreciation for this milestone, the University of Maryland will be recognizing all of the men’s lacrosse alumni in attendance who have donned the red and black for the Terps over the past 88 seasons. Throughout the years the Maryland men’s lacrosse team has won 11 national championships and 26 ACC championships, had 31 national players of the year, seven conference players of the year and 451 All-Americans, including 114 first-team selections.

• This season also marks the 40th anniversary of Maryland’s first men’s lacrosse NCAA Championship. Men’s lacrosse became an officially recognized sport in by the NCAA until 1971 and just two years later in 1973, Maryland captured its first NCAA championship. The ’73 squad, under the guidance of Bud Beardmore, ran roughshod over its opposition en route to a perfect 10-0 record. The Terps claimed their first NCAA title by defeating Johns Hopkins, 10-9 in double-overtime, in the tournament finals. A school-record 12 Terps earned All-America honors in 1973. The 1973 championship team will also be honored at halftime of Saturday’s game.
