Phil Poe ’14 Named America East Men’s Lacrosse Rookie of the Week

Midfielder Phil Poe ’14 has been named America East Conference Men’s Lacrosse Rookie of the Week for games ending Sunday, April 10.

Poe has taken over as UMBC’s primary face-off specialist and helped guide the Retrievers to a pair of hard-fought victories last week. He won 13 of 21 draws in the 10-9 win over Towson and split 16 draws in the 8-6 victory over Binghamton. Poe totaled 15 ground balls in the two contests.

The first-year player scored his first collegiate goal against the Tigers, giving UMBC a 2-0 lead six seconds after the Retrievers scored the game’s first goal.

Poe is now 35-31 in his initial season on draws and is second on the squad with 24 ground balls.

UMBC has won two consecutive games heading into Saturday evening’s contest at Albany.
