ACC Players of the Week

GREENSBORO, N.C. – Maryland senior midfielder John Stertzer has been named the Atlantic Coast Conference men’s soccer player of the week following his role in the Terrapins’ 3-0 shutout of No. 7/16 Louisville.

The MAC Hermann Trophy candidate gave Maryland a three-goal cushion with his goal late in the second half. Stertzer also played an instrumental role on defense as he helped the Terps preserve their first shutout and avenge the NCAA Championship Third Round loss from 2011.

The goal was Stertzer’s 19th of his career, while the player of the week nod is his first of his career.
