Levendusky’s 2008 campaign was one of the best in UMBC history and earned her America East All-Conference First Team recognition, her fourth consecutive all-league nod. She capped a brilliant career with 53 goals, tying Debbie Krastel (1999) for the second-highest single-season total in school history. In addition, her 59 points are the fifth-best season mark. She ranked second in the America East with 3.31 goals per game and fifth with 3.69 points per game. Levendusky also led the Retrievers with 23 draw controls, tied for the team lead with 24 ground balls, ranked second with six assists and caused 11 turnovers.
The senior finished her career with 139 goals and 175 points, ranking fourth and seventh all-time on UMBC’s all-time list. She was named co-Outstanding Senior Female Athlete at UMBC’s varsity banquet earlier this month.
Levendusky is believed to be the first-ever Retriever to be selected to the All-Region First Team, and she is the first UMBC player to earn an All-Region honor since Kelly Fiorani was named to the Mid-Atlantic Second Team in 2006. Levendusky is also the first Retriever to be chosen for the North-South Game since Fiorani and Julie Libertini in 2006.
