UMBC and Vermont have been the class of the America East conference this season. Are they destined to meet in the championship game?
Courtesy: UNH Athletics DURHAM, N.H. – The University of New Hampshire swimming and diving team opened its 2021 season with a 171.5-67.5 victory against America East foe Vermont on Saturday afternoon at Swasey Pool. The Wildcats won 12 of 13 events on the day against the Catamounts. We were actually kind of surprised how well a lot of people swam, it was pretty fast for being out of the water all fall,” said UNH Head Coach Josh Willman.
Ryan Davis scored 21 points as Vermont stretched its winning streak to eight games, beating Maryland-Baltimore County 80-71 on Thursday night, earning at least a share of the America East Conference title. The Catamounts and UMBC play again Friday in the regular-season finale. Vermont needs a sweep to become the first team to win five consecutive AEC titles.
