A note on the Albany site about the Luke Daquino being on the watch list for the Twaarton Award. He's one of 35 on the watch list, most are from traditional lax powers so it's a compliment right there. I think the UMass coach is on the selection committe so hopefully he has a big game that day.



     Albany, N.Y. – University at Albany men’s lacrosse coach Scott Marr announced on Wednesday, March 2 that Luke Daquino, Patrick McSweeney, Kevin Rae and Chris Kivlen will serve as team captains for the 2005 season.

     Daquino, a senior attacker, is a captain for the second straight year. He recently made the Tewaaraton Award Foundation’s Preseason Players to Watch list. The Tewaaraton Trophy is annually given to the nation’s top collegiate lacrosse player. Daquino, a first-team All-America East performer, has scored 50-plus points in three consecutive seasons, including 20 goals and 32 assists in 2004.

     McSweeney and Rae, a pair of second-team all-conference selections, led UAlbany to a second straight America East championship and NCAA tournament berth last spring. Rae, a senior goalkeeper, posted a .578 save percentage, and was named the America East championship MVP. McSweeney, a 6-foot-1, 240-pound defenseman, has started 25 of 26 games played over the last two seasons.

     Kivlen was a starter on defense for the first time last season as a junior. The Great Danes allowed 10.38 goals per game and stopped 77 of 94 man-down opportunities.

     UAlbany begins its 2005 schedule on Sunday, March 6 against Providence, the 2004 Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference champion, at 1:00 p.m. The season opener’s site has been shifted to the University of Massachusetts’ Garber Field.
