From Press Release
Guided by their efforts on and off the field, Dylan Rice and Max Wayne will return as team captains for the Christopher Newport men’s lacrosse program, while fellow seniors Phoenix Hines and Andrew Clark (Malvern Prep, goalie) have been selected as assistant team captains for the upcoming 2021 campaign.
For the third straight year, Rice will be a member of the team’s leadership core after previously serving as a team captain in 2019 and 2020. Meanwhile, Wayne will also continue serving in a leadership capacity after being an assistant team captain last season.
In addition to the returners, Clark and Hines will join their classmates as leaders on and off the field after being chosen as assistant team captains for 2021.
“When this senior class first arrived on campus in the fall of 2017, it was hard not to think about what they would be like as seniors,” said head coach Mikey Thompson. “Now that time has come and they have exceeded those expectations as a group. To be selected as captains by their teammates for this year is an especially high honor due to the strong leadership across the board. This group is driven to do big things, and their leadership is extremely important during these uncertain times!”
“Andrew Clark is our living definition of ‘Grit’ – passion and perseverance for long term goals,” said Thompson. “He’s worked extremely hard and supported all of his teammates every step of the way. We all know he’s due for a big senior year in the cage!”
Over the course of the last three years, Clark, Hines, Rice, and Wayne have helped Christopher Newport compile a 32-13 record while becoming a fixture in the USILA National Coaches Poll. Since the arrival of the 2021 senior class, the Captains have shattered nearly every school record while advancing to the third round of the NCAA Tournament for the first time in program history in 2018.
