The Retrievers played one match last week, dropping a five-set heartbreaker at Georgetown, 3-2, Tuesday night.

UMBC was led by sophomore Ali Loynachan (Oshawa, Ontario, Canada/Sinclair), who hit .323 with 11 kills and only one error. Junior Iman Kennedy (Charlotte, N.C./Independence) tallied seven kills and a game-high four blocks, while freshman Hallie Carter (Huntington Beach, Calif./Edison) had a game-high 26 digs.
For the season, Hoeks leads the team in kills (2.82 kps) and aces (0.61 aps), while Kennedy leads the team in blocks (1.09 bps) and Carter leads the team in digs (3.98 dps). Kennedy now has 150 career assisted blocks, ninth-most in Retriever history.
