Arcadia Men's Lacrosse Names Inaugural Captains

Glenside, PA (November 8. 2012) – Arcadia Men’s Lacrosse Head Coach Andrew Delaney named his 2013 captains as selected by the team. These are the first captains in the history of the program, which will begin NCAA competition on February 20, 2012 when they host Stockton at 7pm on Easton Field. Chris Baines, John Phillips, Francis Eluwa and Mac Weiss will lead the Knights into their first season.

“My staff and I are very excited to announce the first captains in the history of Arcadia Lacrosse,” Delaney said. “It is certainly a great honor for these young men, but it is one that they have earned. All four captains have demonstrated to the staff and their teammates the qualities as leaders that we need in setting the foundation of the program. I for one am looking forward to working with this group because each of them bring a unique background and personality that will be an asset in helping the staff move the program forward.”

“As seniors, Chris and John are long time members of the club team and have been instrumental in bringing lacrosse to Glenside,” said Delaney. “Their investment in this program is extraordinary and their teammates have recognized that by selecting them as captains. Personally they have been a huge asset for me, hosting a number of recruits that are now teammates.”
Francis Eluwa #2
