Baltimore - UMBC senior midfielder Terry Kimener (Oakton, Va.) and three Retriever teammates were handsomely rewarded for their outstanding seasons as the program tied a school record with four All America citations by the United States Intercollegiate Lacrosse Association. Kimener earned Second Team honors, receiving the highest honor since defenseman George McGeeney earned UMBC's lone First Team citation at the NCAA Division I level in 1982. Midfielder Mark Gold also earned Second Team honors in 1984.

A trio of juniors, defenseman Bobby Atwell (Dunkirk, Md.) goalkeeper Jeremy Blevins (Cockeysville, Md.), and attackman Ryan Smith (Fallston, Md.) earned honorable mention All America honors. The foursome of award winners ties the 1981 and 1999 classes as the most in a single season in the school's Division I (1981) history.

Moreover, the United States Lacrosse Board of Directors has selected former UMBC Director of Athletics and Head Lacrosse Coach Dick Watts to the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame. This year's class will be inducted in a ceremony on Nov. 10 at The Grand Lodge in Hunt Valley, Md.

Kimener, who competed in the North-South All Star Classic on May 23 at Harvard University, becomes the third Retriever to earn three Division I All America citations. He followed the exact same pattern as Gold, who earned honorable mention honors in his sophomore and junior seasons and Second Team honors in his senior campaign. Attackman Chris Turner was named honorable mention in his sophomore and junior seasons and earned Third Team honors in his final season of 1999.
