America East Conference Last season: 7-8, missed NCAA tournament Coach: Don Zimmerman (21st season, 147-131; 28th season overall, 220-146) Top returning point-getter: Pat Young, sophomore M (32, 7) Other key returnees Zach Esser, sophomore D (28 ground balls, 22 caused turnovers) Matt Gregoire, senior A (28, 4) Nate Lewnes, sophomore A (14, 10) Key newcomers Connor Gordon, freshman GK Max Maxwell, freshman A Ruston Souder, freshman GK Outlook: The Retrievers are hoping to springboard off of last year's march to the America East tournament final where they lost to Albany, who continue to stand in the way. UMBC has already suffered four season-ending injuries, but Zimmerman is hopeful that an offense powered by Young and Gregoire can give an inexperienced defense time to mature.
