At some point, UMBC coach Don Zimmerman will consider retiring and riding into the sunset. But even he isn't sure when that will happen. “I enjoy coming to work every day, and I think this job is certainly challenging,” the 61-year-old Zimmerman said Monday morning, days after the university announced agreeing to a two-year contract extension with Zimmerman that will keep him with the Retrievers through the 2016 season. “I'm excited for the challenges, and I'm going to keep going as long as UMBC wants me. I feel as though I've still got plenty of gas in the tank.

Read our transcript with the UMBC men's lacrosse coach Don Zimmerman is in his 12th season as head coach at UMBC. The Retrievers finished 6-8 last season. Baltimoresun.com: What have you learned about your team in the preseason? Don Zimmerman: We've had two scrimmages and I think we played well in one and didn't play as well in the other, so we were a little inconsistent. We've been hampered by the weather a little bit. They are re-doing the turf in our stadium and we've been practicing on grass and have been forced to play indoors.

UMBC's loss to No. 13 Albany may not have been a surprise, but the team's setback to Binghamton was. In that game, the Retrievers (7-6 overall and 3-2 in the America East) lost a 6-4 lead at halftime and were outscored 9-1 in the second half en route to a 13-7 loss. So who do they get in an America East tournament semifinal on Thursday at Stony Brook? Those same Bearcats (7-7, 4-1). UMBC coach Don Zimmerman acknowledged that the team was eager for a rematch with Binghamton, but he warned against revenge taking over preparation.

Maryland coach John Tillman has already voiced his intention to go with Wednesday night's home contest against UMBC as planned despite the impending approach of a storm forecast to dump as much as eight inches of snow on the Washington, D.C. area. Retrievers coach Don Zimmerman feels the same way. “We scheduled to play this game, and the guys want to play,” Zimmerman said Tuesday afternoon. “When you have a chance to play the No. 1 team in the country in a venue like Byrd Stadium, that's what kids dream about.

There are still several weeks left in the college lacrosse season, but the Coach of the Year award should already be determined. The award has to go to UMBC's Don Zimmerman. There are compelling cases for others such as Ohio State's Joe Breschi, Drexel's Chris Bates and Syracuse's John Desko. But Zimmerman has put together strong back-to-back seasons with the Retrievers, who have won nine straight games. And he has done it under some very tough circumstances. "He lost his entire attack from a year ago," Maryland coach Dave Cottle said.

The first time I met Don Zimmerman was in 1987 when he was the coach at Johns Hopkins. He was as intense then as he is now. He would leave a trail after the game from pacing the sideline. He would run a fast break with his team going down the field. Like most young coaches, his top priority was winning. Twenty-one years later, winning is still a priority of Zimmerman's, but it's not No. 1. If it were, Zimmerman would still be a candidate for the coaching job at North Carolina. Instead, he withdrew his name recently and decided to stay at UMBC, where he has been the head coach the past 15 years.

An 18-year-old wing, Vrana comes to the Capitals organization from Linkoping in the Swedish Hockey League, where he played 24 games last season and scored two goals. The hard-shooting left-hander was ranked the fourth-best skater in Europe for this draft class, according to NHL Central Scouting.

Here is the third installment of a series that checks in with the seven Division I programs in the state to give a glimpse into the past and the future. Teams are scheduled to appear according to the chronological order in which their seasons ended. Tuesday's visit was with Towson. Wednesday's visit is with UMBC. REVIEW The good: The Retrievers (8-7 overall and 3-2 in the America East) upped their average in scoring by almost a full goal from 2013 to 2014, and a fair amount of credit goes to attackman Matt Gregoire (South River)

Don Zimmerman can't imagine where the UMBC offense would be if attackman Matt Gregoire had decided to not return for a fifth year of eligibility. "I don't think I'd want to do that," Zimmerman said with a chuckle on Monday morning. Gregoire, a South River graduate, has broken several records for the Retrievers (7-6, 3-2), who - as the No. 3 seed - will meet second-seeded Binghamton (7-7, 4-1) in the America East semifinals at Stony Brook on Thursday. His 41 goals in 2014 are the most by a UMBC player in a season since Cayle Ratcliffe scored 42 in 2007.

Jack Gannon's development as UMBC's primary playmaker shouldn't be too surprising considering his roots as a point guard in basketball. The sophomore midfielder leads the Retrievers (6-5 overall and 2-1 in the America East) in assists with 18 and ranks second in points with 35 and credits his evolution as a player to his days running the varsity basketball team at Sachem High School North in Lake Ronkonkoma, N.Y. “When I played basketball growing up, I was a point guard. So I was always looking to feed and that translated into lacrosse,” Gannon said Monday.

Any worries coach Don Zimmerman had about how UMBC would respond after a surprising loss to America East rival disappeared in the first 15 minutes of Saturday's game against visiting Hartford. The Retrievers outscored the Hawks, 7-2, in the first quarter en route to a 16-11 victory at UMBC Stadium. It was the sixth time this season that the team had entered the second quarter with a lead, and UMBC has won five of those games. The strong start was a refreshing development for Zimmerman.

Some teams consider it fortunate to get through a campaign without a spate of season-ending injuries. UMBC is already enduring four of those ailments, and the year has not even begun. The Retrievers have lost senior midfielder Conor Finch to a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL), junior goalkeeper Wes DiRito to foot surgery, senior long-stick midfielder Nathan Klein to a broken neck, and freshman defenseman Pat Dignan to a torn ACL. All four players could return for 2015 if the NCAA approves medical hardship waivers for each, but the team will have to compete this season without three starters in Finch (five goals and 10 assists in 2013)

After wasting an 11-8 advantage in the final nine minutes of the fourth quarter, UMBC needed a critical stick save by redshirt freshman goalkeeper Connor Gordon to kill a six-on-four, man-down opportunity in overtime. The Retrievers then got a goal from sophomore midfielder Pat Young with 9.6 seconds left in the extra session to edge visiting Stony Brook, 12-11, at UMBC Stadium in Catonsville on Friday night. The win lifted the Retrievers to 5-4 overall and 1-0 in the America East Conference, which is pivotal if the program hopes to qualify for the NCAA tournament for the first time since 2009.

Pat Young went from goat to game-winner. Young, a sophomore midfielder for the UMBC men's lacrosse team, made up for a holding penalty that gave Stony Brook a six-on-four extra-man opportunity in overtime by scoring with 9.6 seconds left in the extra session to lift the Retrievers to a 12-11 win before an announced 619 at UMBC Stadium on Friday night. Young, who finished with a team-high four points on three goals and one assist, beat Seawolves sophomore long-stick midfielder Dylan Curry and fired a shot past freshman goalkeeper Hayden Johnston to help the Retrievers improve to 5-4 overall and 8-3 in America East openers.
