Retriever Alumni Update – June 16

During the summer the Retriever Alumni update will be about bi-monthly, but it has been a couple of big weeks for former Dawgs with a former lacrosse star leading Major League Lacrosse in goals.

Major League Lacrosse

Brendan Mundorf and Drew Westervelt and the Denver Outlaws have won three games in a row and are now tied atop the MLL standings at 4-1. Mundorf scored his fourth hat trick of the season in a 15-9 win over Long Island on Saturday and now has 16 goals, which is tied for the league lead. He also has 20 points, which is third in MLL.

Westervelt is second on the team in scoring with 15 points and has at least a goal and an assist in four out of the five games this season. His eight assists are tied for fourth in the league.

Terry Kimener picked up three ground balls and scored on both of his shots for the Chicago Machine in a 22-11 loss to Boston. He has three goals and five points in four games for the Machine this season.

Jeremy Blevins, Alex Hopmann and Peet Poillon will be joining their respective teams once the men’s lacrosse team gets back from Japan. Blevins and Hopmann were drafted by Denver and will join Mundorf and Westervelt, while Poillon will head north after being drafted by the Boston Cannons. Be sure to check out the great blog entries we’re getting from players over in Japan.

United Soccer League – Division I

Mat Watson and the Carolina RailHawks are second in the USL-I with 23 points after 12 games played, with Watson having started in three out of the last four overall matches. He has played in a total of eight of the team’s 12 league games. The RailHawks host Wilmington in the second round of the US Open Cup tonight, with the winner getting the chance to play MLS outfit, the Chicago Fire.

United Soccer League – Division II

Brian Rowland and Chris Gnatiko and Crystal Palace USA FC are tied with Dan Bulls and Real Maryland for third in USL-II with 15 points. Rowland has started every game this season for CP and Gnatiko has seen action in 10 matches.

Bulls has played in six games and if Real Maryland defeats Ocean City in the second round of the US Open Cup tonight, he would get a chance to play DC United in the next round.

Baloncesto Superior Nacional

Ray Barbosa and Vaqueros de Bayamon are 16-8 on the season, sitting in fourth place. Barbosa has seen action in 12 games this season, averaging 4.1 points per game and is shooting 52% from the field. The season is winding down with six games to go, as Bayamon looks to cement a playoff position.


As always, if you know of any former Retrievers playing in professional or semi-professional leagues around the world, please email and we’ll start tracking them. Thanks for reading, hope your summer is going well.
