UMBC athletes receiving awards from America East

Let's empty out the ol' notebook this afternoon. In case you haven't read elsewhere, here's a few news bits I couldn't get out last week:

The lacrosse team's Mike Camardo and Kyle Wimer are both in the running for America East Conference Fan's Choice Player of the year (what a mouthful.)  Wimer leads the Retrievers in points with 30, including 18 assists.

But Camardo has been the true star for UMBC in 2010. The long-stick midfielder is second in the nation in caused turnovers, averaging 3.2 per game. Camardo also leads UMBC in ground balls with 38 this season.

In softball, third baseman/pitcher Amanda Fefel hit her 40th career home run, and is now tied with Kristie Pickeral (2002-2005) for the most ever at UMBC.

Fefel was named America East Player of the Week, becoming the third Retriever so honored this season. She went 7-for-13 (.538) in three games and also struck out eight in 10.2 innings pitched.

Fefel leads the club in several hitting categories including batting average (.336), home runs (10), and RBIs (31).
