Zim seems to steal at least one top prospect out of Stony Brook's back yard every year. Looks like they are reloaded big time.

I just played in the alumni game . The team looks good .From what I heard from Zim very happy with the freshman class. They are are looking at alot of offensive play from freshman middie Dave Brown ( Hill School ) small but extremely quick and can score. But you cannot go by the alumni game only time will tell how this recruiting class contributes to the squad.

St. John's will play at UMBC at 3pm. Only one game today. That per St. John's website... Again, would love to hear detailed reports if at all possible, from whomever goes. Apparently field conditions were too poor to play the tourney.

Report on scrimmage from IL. Seems it was relatively even game score-wise with UMBC taking first quarter lead, and SJU leading the rest of game.

Andy Gallagher Named Assistant Lacrosse Coach at UMBC

Former Retriever standout Andy Gallagher has been named assistant men's lacrosse coach at UMBC, it was announced today by head lacrosse coach Don Zimmerman. Gallagher will begin his duties on Nov. 9, 2009.

"It's great to have Andy Gallagher back as an assistant coach at UMBC,” Zimmerman said. “During his playing career, Andy consistently demonstrated outstanding leadership skills and a terrific feel for the game of lacrosse, playing the game with an incredible sense of passion and determination. The Retriever program is fortunate to have a person of Andy's character on board and looks forward to continued growth and development."

Gallagher served as the Director of Student Activities and assistant boys' lacrosse coach at his alma mater, DeMatha Catholic High School, from August, 2008 until accepting the position at UMBC.

The Rockville, Md. native showed tremendous courage and skill during his playing career at UMBC. He suffered torn ACL's in each of his first two playing seasons (2003 and 2004), but recovered to cap his career with an All-America citation in his senior campaign of 2007. He captained that team, which became UMBC's first-ever to advance in NCAA Tournament competition, and amassed 35 goals and 51 points in his senior season.

For his career, Gallagher recorded 98 goals and 146 points and is currently ranked 11th on UMBC's all-time scoring list. He earned America East First Team honors as a sophomore midfielder in 2005 and second team recognition at attack in 2007.

Gallagher's older brother, Matt, captained the 2004 UMBC squad and earned four letters from 2001-04. His younger brother, Danny, lettered in lacrosse at the University of Maryland. The newest member of the Retriever coaching staff earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in sociology and minored in history. He was also an active participant in UMBC's “You Can Make a Difference” mentoring program and the “Ride with Pride” program for disabled children at the Maryland Equestrian Center.

BALTIMORE, MD - UMBC Head Men's Lacrosse Coach Don Zimmerman has announced the Retrievers' team captains and spring schedule for the 2010 campaign.

Seniors Bobby Atwell (Dunkirk, Md./Southern), Mike Carmardo (Altamont, N.Y./Guilderland), Sam Eitel (Berlin, Md./Mount St. Joseph), and Kyle Wimer (Lancaster, Pa./Hempfield) will serve as the team captains. It is the second honor for Atwell and Camardo and the first for Eitel and Wimer.

For the second time, Atwell was tabbed a team captain in the fall of 2008, but suffered a torn ACL in the winter and earned a medical hardship waiver to complete his eligibility in the spring of 2010. The defenseman earned an All America citation in 2008 and was named to the America East Conference First Team. He and Camardo are two of ten Retrievers to earn multiple captaincies in school history.

Atwell earned All-Championship team honors in 2008 and America East Second Team accolades in 2007. He has competed in 46 games, with 32 starts in three seasons and amassed 86 ground balls and a pair of goals.

Camardo was named the Most Outstanding Player of the 2009 America East Championships after scoring twice, picking up 12 ground balls and causing four turnovers in two games. The long-stick defensive midfielder recorded a school-record 32 caused turnovers for the campaign and was second on the team with 54 ground balls. He has five goals, four assists and 109 ground balls in three seasons.

Eitel has competed in 25 career games for the Retrievers, serving as Carmardo's understudy for the majority of his tenure. He has been recognized as a hard worker who sets a positive tone and is an inspirational leader of the team.

Wimer earned All American and America East First-Team honors in 2008 after an All-Rookie team citation in 2006. The two-way midfielder recorded personal season bests of 24 goals and 18 assists in 2009 and has 98 points (53 goals, 45 assists) after his first three seasons of play.

"We are fortunate to have four outstanding leaders serving as captains for this year's team,” Zimmerman said. “As two-time captains, both Bobby Atwell and Mike Camardo have experience serving in this important role. Kyle Wimer, throughout his career here at UMBC, has always led by example while Sam Eitel's passion and commitment is truly inspirational."

* * * *

A return visit to UMBC Stadium by the North Carolina Tar Heels highlights the Retrievers' 12-game 2010 schedule.

The two teams competed in Chapel Hill, N.C. last May in the first round of the NCAA Tournament and the host Tar Heels prevailed in a shoot-out, 15-13. UMBC had won three straight vs. UNC at UMBC Stadium (1999, 2001, 2003) until the Tar Heels triumphed, 11-5, in 2005.

The meeting on Saturday, March 6 at 1:00 p.m., which will be televised by ESPNU/WMAR-TV, begins a challenging four-game stretch for UMBC. Three days later, the Retrievers travel to Homewood Field, to take on Johns Hopkins (ESPNU) on Tuesday March 9, and the following Saturday, March 13, the Princeton Tigers will host UMBC. On Saturday, March 20, UMBC entertains the Maryland Terrapins at noon in another ESPNU/WMAR-TV broadcast.

Coach Zimmerman's forces open the campaign on Saturday, Feb. 20 when they welcome Delaware, then take to the road for a Saturday, Feb. 27 date at Rutgers. The Retrievers' final non-conference game is on Wednesday, April 7, when UMBC visits local foe Towson.

The Retrievers kick off America East Conference play on Saturday, April 3, when they host Stony Brook in a rematch of the 2008 league championship game. UMBC also hosts America East rival Albany on April 17 and concludes the regular season vs. Hartford at UMBC Stadium on May 1, in another ESPNU/WMAR-televised game.

The 2010 America East Championships will be played at the higher seed on Wednesday, May 5 and Saturday, May 8.

"This year's schedule will once again present quite a challenge to the 2010 Retrievers as we take on some of the top teams in Division I lacrosse,” Zimmerman said. “Of course, the annual battle between America East Conference foes is something the team looks forward to and will use the first half of the season in which to prepare.”

Hopefully, the Terps will be up for the task this year, but otherwise I'll be rooting for them.
That is quite a tough two weeks in April for UMBC: UNC, at Hopkins, at Princeton, UMd.

What was up with Maxx Davis last year? Injury?
Whatever it was, has he shaken it?
Two years ago, he was an extremely exciting player...
