A busy week for the Retriever Alumni Update, as three former basketball stars continue to shine overseas as two former LAX athletes will represent their country in the World Championships.

Former UMBC lacrosse standout attackmen Brendan Mundorf (’06) and Drew Westervelt (’07) are among 23 players who have been selected for the 2010 United States men’s national team. All 23 players, selected by the coaching staff, will compete in the FIL World Championship in Manchester,England from July 14-24, 2010.

Mundorf and Westervelt, who are current teammates with the MLL’s Denver Outlaws, are the third and fourth former Retrievers to represent the USA. Defenseman Gary Clipp (’76) earned the first distinction in 1982, and defenseman George McGeeney (’82) was a two-time selection in 1986 and 1990.

Mundorf earned All America honors in 2005 and 2006 and was the America East Player of the Year in 2006. He is currently sixth on UMBC’s all-time scoring list with 112 goals (6th), 73 assists (9th) for 195 points. Mundorf competed for Team Australia in the 2006 World Lacrosse Championships held inOntario, Canada and had a brilliant tournament, helping the Aussies to an impressive third-place finish. He finished tied for third overall in the tournament with 32 points (24 goals, 8 assists).

A 2007 Third Team All American, Westervelt is UMBC’s third all-time leading scorer with 112 goals (6th, tied with Mundorf), 94 assists (3rd) for 206 points. He had a brilliant 2007 campaign, scoring 35 goals and adding 36 assists for 71 points, the second-highest figure in UMBC’s Division I history.

Both Mundorf and Westervelt were selected to the 2009 MLL All-Star team.

He scored 26 with seven steals in a 81-74 loss to Horsens IC last Thursday, while earning 10 points and five rebounds in a 94-77 win over Randers Cimbria on Saturday. On Monday, the Bears competed in the Danish Cup, defeating Hørsholm 79-65 in the Round of 32, with Proctor scoring 17 and grabbing nine rebounds. Proctor’s having a great season so far, averaging 20.5 points and 7.8 rebounds a game. His 3.25 steals per game lead the league.
