CHAPEL HILL, N.C. – Two seniors and one junior have been named as tri-captains of the 2011-12 University of North Carolina men’s lacrosse team, head coach Joe Breschi announced Tuesday. The three captains were chosen by a vote of their teammates on Monday, the day after the conclusion of fall ball for the Tar Heels.
Senior defenseman Mark Staines of Gambrills, Md. and senior defenseman Charlie McComas of Parkton, Md. have been chosen as two of the captains. The third captain is junior attackman Marcus Holman of Baltimore, Md.
This marks the first time in Coach Joe Breschi’s tenure that the Tar Heels have elected tri-captains. The 2009 team had four captains and each of the past two teams had co-captains.
The last Tar Heel to serve as a captain in his junior year prior to Holman’s election was Fletcher Gregory, who captained the 2007 team a junior and 2008 team as a senior.
