Naomi Bush – Volleyball

America East Rookie of the Week

Bush, who won her fourth Rookie of the Week honor, led the Retrievers to a 3-0 win over Hartford on Friday night in UMBC’s only match of the week. The freshman hit nine kills with no errors on 14 swings for an outstanding .643 hitting percentage, leading the conference for the week in the latter category. Bush also added two blocks and an assist, and improved her season average to 2.51 kills per set which ranks third for the Retrievers.

 

Carlee Cassidy – Women’s Basketball

America East Preseason All-Conference

A two-time all-conference selection, Cassidy became the first player to lead the America East in scoring in back-to-back seasons in nearly a decade. She ranked 15th in the country last year, averaging 20.4 points per game, the third-best single-season scoring average in UMBC history. The 5-9 guard set school records with 613 points, 80 three-pointers and 175 free throws last season.

Cassidy also became UMBC’s all-time leader in career three-pointers with 178, and she is the fourth-fastest Retriever to tally 1,000 career points and now ranks seventh all-time with 1,228. She enters the season as the second-leading scorer among active players in the America East and ranks 51st all-time in conference history.
