They may say the best things come in threes, but that’s not good enough for UMBC volleyball. Over the weekend, the number one-seeded Retrievers captured their fourth-straight America East championship. After outright winning the season title, they went on to topple Bryant University in the America East semifinals, and they sealed their victory with a sweep of third-seeded Binghamton University on Saturday.
“Winning four straight championships in college sports is really tough, regardless of sport or league,” said head coach Kasey Crider. “More than anything, this past weekend was the standard for what America East volleyball can and should be, in performance and environment.”
