2011 Captains: Princeton, Yale, Quinnipiac, Holy Cross

In 2009 he had 36 pickups in 13 games after snatching 27 in 14 games as a rookie. Coleman has two career goals, one as a freshman and one this past season.

"It is a huge honor and privilege to be elected captain," said Coleman, a Ridgewood, N.J., native. "Brendan Gibson set a very high precedent and I will try to follow the great job he did. Our team has tremendous leadership within itself, starting with a great class of leaders surrounding me. This season was a success in that we made the Ivy Tournament, but we are looking to use the momentum to have an even better year next year."

A four-time varsity lacrosse letterman at Delbarton School, he was honorable mention all-conference his senior year. With Coleman, his teams were three-time conference champions, two-time state champions and took a pair of county titles.

"Pat is a great player who has blossomed into a great leader. He fully understands the job in front of him. He has had a great example set for him by Brendan Gibson, and I know he's ready to take the baton," said Yale head coach Andy Shay.

Coleman, a resident of Jonathan Edwards College, majors in economics.

Quinnipiac

HAMDEN, Conn. Quinnipiac University Men's Lacrosse Head Coach Eric Fekete has announced that rising seniors Kevin Benzing (Severna Park, Md.), Jake Glebocki (Wilbraham, Mass.) and Christian Haggerty (West Nyack, N.Y.) have been selected as team captains for the 2011 season. Glebocki and Haggerty were named to the All-Northeast Conference Second Team, while Benzing took All-ECAC Lacrosse Second Team honors this past season.

"Kevin, Jake and Christian have been great leaders, both on and off the field in their time here at Quinnipiac," said Fekete. "I have no doubt that they'll continue to be a positive influence on our team as captains next year."

Benzing compiled an 8.69 goals-against average (15th-NCAA) and a .552 save percentage (20th-NCAA) in posting a 7-6 record in 2010. The highlight of Benzing's season came March 20 at Hobart, when he made 21 saves in securing the 9-7 victory for the Bobcats. For his effort, Benzing was named ECAC Defensive Player of the Week. Benzing also picked up 50 ground balls on the season, the second time in three years in which he's scooped up at least 50.

Glebocki anchored a Bobcats defense that held the opposition to just 8.57 goals per game. Starting all 14 games for Quinnipiac, he picked up 27 ground balls on the season.

Haggerty led the Bobcats in both points (45) and assists (25) in 2010. Haggerty's 25 assists rank tied for second in Quinnipiac single-season history, while he became just the fourth Quinnipiac player to reach both 20 goals and 20 assists in a single season. Haggerty joined Joe Baglio (49 G, 29 A in 2001) as the only other Quinnipiac player with a 20-20 season at Division I, while Brian Perry (33 G, 25 A in 1998) and P.J. Gillard (24 G, 21 A in 1995) achieved the feat at the Division II level.

Holy Cross

WORCESTER, Mass. The Holy Cross men's lacrosse program has named seniors Douglas Broussard (Floral Park, N.Y.), Colin Flood (Bay Shore, N.Y.) and Conor McKenna (Summit, N.J.) as 2011 team captains.

"Like our entire senior class, these three kids work very hard," said Holy Cross head coach Adam Pascal. "They bring a ton of experience and always display great effort. They are outstanding leaders."

Last season, Broussard earned second team All-New England and All-Patriot League honors. He was only the fourth Crusader to receive All-Patriot League accolades and the first since 2002. Broussard picked up a career-best 73 ground balls last season to lead the team as he has 137 ground balls for his career, which are the most by any current Crusader. His 4.87 ground balls per game were third in the Patriot League and 18th nationally. He also had a career-year offensively as he recorded two goals and three assists for five points. Broussard has played in 44 career games with three goals and four assists for seven points.
