Five Retrievers earn All-AEC honors

Carolyn Jamison was of on three Retrievers to earn First Team All-America East honors.

Five members of the UMBC women’s lacrosse team earned All-America East postseason honors. Three players received All-AEC first team honors while another was put on the Second Team and finally, one player earned a spot on the All-Rookie team.

UMBC was represented at each level of the field on the first team.

Senior attacker Sam Nolan helped lead a potent UMBC attack that ranked second in the America East and 18th in the country with 14.7 goals per game. She had a remarkable year, scoring 44 goals with 32 assists for 76 points. Her points and assists total ranks top five for single-season marks. Nolan has shattered the career assists record for UMBC with 73 in his career, heading into the AEC Championships. She has 10 more than Jen Dragoni, who held the previous record by the end of her career that went from 2001-2004. Nolan ranks fourth at UMBC with 188 career points.

Junior midfielder Carolyn Jamison scored 35 goals and had a career-high 21 assists. She also scooped up 17 ground balls and had 37 draw controls. She, like Nolan, recorded her 100th career goal this season. She is just 11 points away from breaking into the top 10 on the career points list at UMBC.

Sophomore Kayla Renehan represented UMBC’s defense on the All-AEC First Team. She caused 21 turnovers this season and ranks fifth in the conference in caused turnovers per game at 1.31. She also has scooped up 26 ground balls.

Despite ranking third in the nation with 3.75 goals per game and totaling UMBC record 60 goals on the year, Lauren McDonald settled for a spot on the All-AEC Second Team. She broke Laura Robinson’s record of 58 set back in 1985. She is also tied for fifth in the conference in free position percentage, cashing in on eight of her 17 attempts this year. She also picked up 24 ground balls, had 23 draw controls and 11 caused turnovers.

Though listed as a sophomore, midfielder Sara Moeller was put on the All-Rookie team. An injury cost her, her entire 2016 season and therefore made her eligible for the All-Rookie team as a first-year player. Moeller set UMBC records with nine assists and 13 points against VCU early in the year. She has also shattered UMBC’s single-season assists record set back in 1998, recording 35 so far this season.

The Retrievers will participate in the America East Championships beginning on Friday, May 5 at 8 pm when they play the second-seeded Albany Great Danes. The tournament will be held on at Stony Brook University.

Editor in Chief
You could say Corey was born to become a sports journalist. His father won a national championship coaching college soccer. His mother is a baseball fanatic who hasn't missed seeing an Orioles game since 1983 (literally, sometimes it's annoying). His great uncle was a big-time boxing promoter and his maternal grandfather was once a department head at the Baltimore Sun. Basically, sports and journalism run through his blood. He played just about every little league sports there was when he was a kid and was a multi-sport athlete in high school; even playing in the first-ever high school sanction Rugby game in the country. Eventually he retired from sports as an undefeated Maryland state Rugby champion as a high school senior. Perhaps lack of athletic talent has more to do with the retirement, but he will tell you that it more had to do with a great desire to jump right into media. Upon his graduation from University of Maryland, Baltimore County as a triple communications major, Corey started the So Much Sports network and has continued to grow his websites and continues to work to make them premier sports media outlets.
