MEN

Grant Catalino, Maryland

Senior, Webster, N.Y., attackman

Catalino sparked the No. 6 Terps (10-3) to two wins and the school's first Atlantic Coast Conference tournament championship since 2005. He scored the game-winning goal to help Maryland, the tournament's No. 3 seed, edge then-No. 7 North Carolina, 7-6, in the semifinal round Friday. And then he scored three goals in the team's 11-9 victory over then-No. 6 Duke, the top seed, in the title game. For his efforts, Catalino, who passed Mark Douglas for eighth on the program's all-time goals list, was named the tournament's Most Valuable Player.

WOMEN

Laura Merrifield, Maryland

Senior, Hertfordshire, England, midfielder

Merrifield scored five unassisted goals including the first and last in an 8-0 run that rallied the No. 1 Terrapins from three goals down to seal a 12-7 victory over No. 6 North Carolina for Maryland's eighth ACC title. Merrifield, a World Cup player for England, also had two goals in an 8-5 semifinal victory over Boston College and played a critical role on the defensive end in both games. Her 36 goals rank fourth on the Terps.
