College Park – In Maryland, spring baseball coverage is typically limited to copious amounts of Orioles spring training press. That changed suddenly for the first time in recent memory this weekend when the Terps served notice that they are a spring baseball power to be reckoned with. 
The Terps (16-6) completed a three-game sweep of previously #10 ranked North Carolina State (14-8). The last time Maryland enjoyed a ACC sweep was in early May 2009 when they bested Wake Forest. It’s been far longer since they managed to sweep the Wolfpack. The last time they completed that feat was May 2-4, 2002 in College Park, according to Maryland Athletics. 
The Terps won the third straight from the Wolfpack on Sunday when they notched a 5-2 victory on Sunday. Five different Terps scored in the win. 
“I was happy to see us play more consistently this weekend,” said coach John Szefc after the game. “We’ve been pitching pretty well consistently for a long time and playing some defense.” 
Backing up Szefc’s sentiment, right-hander Jake Stinnett was named the ACC pitcher of the week for the third time this season on Monday.
