Binghamton men's lacrosse announces captains for 2006 season
VESTAL, N.Y.-- Head coach Ed Stephenson has announced the Binghamton men's lacrosse team's five captains for the 2006 season. They include senior midfielder Brian Chaapel (Penn Yan, N.Y.), senior goalie Kevin McKeown (Brewster, N.Y.), senior defenders Kevin Kaylor (Beverly, Mass.) and Sean Meluney (Cape Henlopen, Del.) as well as redshirt freshman goalie Larry Kline (Beverly, Mass.).
Chaapel and McKeown begin their fourth seasons as captains. Chaapel is coming off an injury that sidelined him for the America East playoffs last year and this past fall. McKeown, who was the America East Conference Player of the Year in 2004, was also named second team last season.
Kaylor, who is a third-year captain, and Meluney, who is a first-year captain, have both been part of the Bearcats' defense, which has been among the nation's best the past two seasons. Binghamton was the America East Conference's top-ranked defensive squad in both 2004 and 2005 (in terms of goals against average). The Bearcats were also first in the nation in defense in 2004.
Despite being sidelined by injuries for the majority of his first year and a half at Binghamton, Kline got the nod as the team's fifth captain.
Binghamton, which begins its 2006 season at Cornell on Feb. 25 at 1 p.m, is in its fifth season as an intercollegiate program. The Bearcats have advanced to the America East Conference finals in 2004 and the semifinals in 2005.
