BALTIMORE - UMBC Head Men's Lacrosse Coach Don Zimmerman has announced the squad's selections for its 2014-15 team captains. The four team captains are seniors Mike Dahl (Joppatowne, Md./Mount St. Joseph), Conor Finch (Westminster, Md./Boys' Latin), Tim Lang (Holbrook, N.Y./Sachem North) and Kevin McDonough (Oakdale, N.Y./St. Anthony's).
Dahl (pictured, top right) started all 15 games last season at close defense and has seen action in 40 contests during his tenure at UMBC. The psychology major posted career highs in ground balls (17) and caused turnovers (7) in 2014. He was selected as the 2014 squad's Unsung Hero and earned a place on America East Conference's Winter-Spring Honor Roll.
The versatile Lang (pictured, right) has played at offensive and defensive midfielder units throughout his tenure with the Retrievers. The financial economics major competed in a career-high 13 games as a defensive middie in 2014 and has seen action in 28 contests in his three campaigns.
Now a two-time team captain, McDonough (pictured, bottom left) will earn his third letter at UMBC, after competing for one season at Binghamton University (2012). He has seen action in all 30 spring contests in two seasons, competing as a short-stick defensive midfielder. The history major finished third on the 2014 squad with 37 ground balls.
"Being named a team captain is quite an honor," Coach Zimmerman said. "It is also a tremendous opportunity to serve others. Our staff is confident that Mike, Conor, Tim and Kevin will all do outstanding jobs serving in this vital role."
