the 6-4, 225-pound Forsythe was a captain last year.
Forsythe had a solid four-year career for the Pride, helping them to Middle Atlantic Conference titles in 2007, 2008 and 2010. His freshman campaign of 2007 saw Widener upend Denison for just the team’s second NCAA Tournament victory in school history.
Widener (10-10, 6-5 MAC) last season won its 12th MAC title and clinched its eighth trip to the NCAA Tournament. The sixth-seeded Pride, appearing in the final a sixth straight year with their fifth title in that span, became the lowest seed to win this tournament and the first to do so with three road wins. They previously were the only team to win three games in the tournament, accomplishing this in 2007.
Widener opens the 2011 season February 26 against SUNY Cortland, which last season advanced to the NCAA semifinals.
