Colgate Names Team Captains for the 2011 Season

HAMILTON, N.Y. (10/19/10) Men's lacrosse head coach Jim Nagle announced that seniors Rob Bosco (Cortlandt Manor, N.Y.), Greg Perkins (Alexandria, Va.), Andrew Mould (Wyomissing, Pa.), and junior Kevin Gordon (Rye, N.Y.) will serve as captains for the upcoming 2011 season.

"We are very confident in the leadership of the 2010-11 Colgate men's lacrosse team," stated Nagle. "We have four captains who support the values of the team. In addition, we have five other seniors who are excited to provide leadership and support for the four captains."

Bosco is a two-year captain and a three-year letterwinner for the Raiders. He has played on the first two midfield lines his first three years at Colgate and finished the 2010 season sixth on the team with 12 points off three goals and nine assists.

"Rob is respected by all members of the team and the athletic department," Nagle said. "He brings a sincere effort and attitude with him every day. His sincerity sets a great example for all of the younger members of the team."

Perkins is a two-year starter in defense for the Raiders and was named to the 2010 All-Patriot League Second Team for his performance last season. He has covered Colgate's opponent's top dodger for the past two years.

"Greg leads by example through his commitment each and every day to be the best that he can be," Nagle commented. "He appreciates and understands the privilege of playing Colgate lacrosse."

Mould gave the Raiders a much-needed scoring spark at the end of the 2010 season when he was moved to attack, finishing with a career-high 11 points off nine goals and two assists. A pre-med major, Mould is an extremely hard working student and is a tenacious rider and groundball man.

"Andrew, leads quietly through his work ethic and physical toughness each day in practice," said Nagle. "He challenges himself on the field and also in the classroom."

Gordon is a junior captain who started every game last season as a defensive midfielder, collecting ten groundballs and forcing two turnovers last season. He is also a "LINK" student leader on campus who mentors younger students in their transition to college.

"Kevin is everything you want your student-athletes to be," Nagle stated. "He sets a great example for the team and is a team-first contributor. He is a leader on the field and also off the field with the student body at Colgate University."
