Seniors Rob Guida and James Malm, along with Junior Mike Pellegrino, have been named the 2014 captains for the Johns Hopkins men’s lacrosse program. Hop missed out on the NCAA tournament last year, so the naming of captains definitely has a little extra spark to it this year. These are the guys that will be leading Hop back to the playoffs. Think they’re going to miss it? I find it doubtful!
I also love a Junior captain. It shows the coaches aren’t just focused on who has earned what by seniority, but by leadership. It’s a small note, but one worth making, at least in this writer’s estimation.
Here is a little more from the Hop press release:
