WASHINGTON - Georgetown University’s Men’s Lacrosse Head Coach Kevin Warne has announced the team captains for the 2018 season. Seniors Craig Berge (Massapequa, N.Y./Massapequa) and Ryan Hursey (Finksburg, Md./Westminster) will lead the Hoyas on the field during the upcoming campaign.
"I am excited about our team’s selection of Craig and Ryan as this year’s captains,” Warne said. “Craig and Ryan have been key contributors to the program, both on and off the field, since they arrived on the Hilltop three years ago. They both possess leadership qualities that are essential to lead our team throughout the season."
A two-time All-BIG EAST performer and an All-American as a freshman in 2015, Berge will help pace the Hoya offense from the midfield. He has tallied 40 goals and 33 assists in his three-year tenure with the Blue & Gray and looks to become just the 20th player in program history with 100 career points. Berge has also notched 11 man up goals and collected 61 ground balls during his time on the Hilltop.
Hursey will help anchor the defensive midfield for the Hoyas, one of the team’s strongest positions this upcoming season. A threat on both the offensive and defensive ends of the field, he has recorded 13 goals and one assist for 14 career points while also collecting 18 ground balls and causing nine turnovers.
Georgetown opens the 2018 season at home against High Point on Tuesday, Feb. 14., at Cooper Field. The Hoyas play a strong schedule that features eight home games and four contests against teams that made the 2017 NCAA Championships.
