The McDonogh graduate totaled seven goals in back-to-back wins over previously undefeated Penn and James Madison to bring her career total to 250. Whittle is only the second player in Terps history to reach that milestone, and she needs just 18 goals to surpass Jen Adams’ record of 267 set in 2001. She is only the 15th player in NCAA Division I history to score 250 goals. Whittle, who has 36 goals and 10 assists this season, had four goals and one assist in Thursday’s 13-7 win over No. 6 Penn. She had three goals and two assists in Saturday’s 15-12 win over then-No. 3 James Madison. As the No. 3 Terps improved to 8-1, Whittle leads Division I in free-position goals with 21, averaging 2.33 per game. She was 2-for-2 against James Madison and has scored on 78 percent of her 8-meter attempts. Whittle, a first-team All-American as a sophomore and a second-team selection last season, has led the Terps in scoring all four years of her career.
