Seven UMBC players earn all-conference honors
UMBC had seven players gain recognition from the America East Conference, including placing four on the first team.
Senior attackman Matt Latham, senior midfielder Kyle Wimer, senior defenseman Matt Kresse and senior short-stick defensive midfielder Maxx Davis earned first-team honors.
Latham, an Eldersburg native and Liberty graduate, leads the team in goals (25) and ranks second among Division I players in shooting percentage (25 of 47 for a 53.2 percentage). Wimer, a repeat first-team selection, leads the Retrievers in scoring with 35 points on 16 goals and 19 assists and has moved into 15th place in program history with 133 career points.
Kresse, a team captain, has played 60 games at close defense, starting 49 of them. Davis, a Baltimore native and Friends graduate, ranks second on the team in groundballs (31) after making the switch to short-stick defensive midfielder this season.
Senior long-stick midfielder Michael Camardo found a spot on the second team. He has broken the school's single-season record of 32 caused turnovers -- a mark he registered last season -- with 35 caused turnovers. That's the second-best total in the country, and he leads UMBC with 47 groundballs.
Freshman midfielder Nick Doub was named to the All-Rookie team. The Annapolis native and St. Mary's graduate has posted four goals and two assists since being promoted to the first line midway through the season.
Senior attackman Chris Jones was selected to the All-Academic team for the third consecutive year. Jones boasts a 3.45 grade-point average while majoring in economics and recently passed the 50-point mark for his career.
