America East Conference Last season: 5-8, missed NCAA tournament Coach: Don Zimmerman (20th season, 140-123; 27th season overall, 213-138) Top returning scorer Scott Jones, senior A (36, 4) Other key returnees Scott Hopmann, senior M (14, 9) Joe Lustgarten, senior A (8, 29) Ethan Murphy, senior D (39 ground balls, 15 caused turnovers) Key newcomers Trey Cover, junior D Zach Esser, freshman D Kevin McDonough, sophomore SSDM Outlook: The Retrievers return a wealth of talent and depth in a senior class that has yet to enjoy a winning season or a trip to the NCAA tournament. The strength of this year's team will reside in the return of last season's attack in Jones, Lustgarten and senior Matt Gregoire (16, 1), a South River graduate. Kenneth K. Lam, Baltimore Sun
