Su­pers­port: Katie O’Don­nell

The Washington Post Sunday - - THE MINI PAGE -

The score was tied. The clock was rac­ing. The pres­sure was mount­ing. Ris­ing to the oc­ca­sion, top-ranked Mary­land star Katie O’Don­nell once again flashed her All-Amer­ica field hockey skills.

First, she stopped a North Carolina at­tack with an in­ter­cep­tion. Then she flipped the ball to team­mate Megan Frazer, who ri­fled in the win­ning goal, lift­ing the Terps to a 3-2, dou­bleover­time vic­tory and their sev­enth na­tional cham­pi­onship.

The Terps ex­pect such moves from O’Don­nell, the two-time Na­tional Player of the Year and a four-time All-Amer­i­can.

“Spe­cial Katie” tal­lied 98 points this fall on 32 goals and 34 as­sists. The ex­plo­sive Terp, an ele­men­tary school ed­u­ca­tion ma­jor, wrote the per­fect end­ing to her col­lege ca­reer and now ex­pects to keep com­pet­ing for U.S. na­tional teams.

Height: 5-2

Home­town: Blue Bell, Pa.
