TOWSON, Md. – Junior Greg Cuccinello and seniors Thomas DeNapoli, John Fennessy and Andrew Hodgson were named Towson Lacrosse team captains for the 2014 season, Head Coach Shawn Nadelen announced.

“I am confident in the young men that have been chosen to lead the 2014 Towson Tigers,” said Nadelen. “They all possess great character, competitiveness and truly embody the essence of a Towson Tiger. Having been chosen by their peers is an awesome responsibility. I know these four men will work well together, while bringing their own leadership persona to the team.  I am excited to work closely with our captains as we move forward as a team.”

Cuccinello had a break out season in 2013, scoring 23 goals with six assists – up from one goal and two assists as a freshman. A starter in 15 games, he scored the game-winner in a 7-6 win at Navy and notched a goal and a pair of assists against No. 3 Ohio State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

An All-American selection at attack last year, DeNapoli was named first team All-Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) after scoring a team-best 41 goals with 19 assists for 60 points. A team captain in 2013, he was one of just six Tigers since 1971 to score 40-plus goals in a season and the first to score 10 points in a game since 1999. The New York native tallied the game-winner to clinch the CAA title at No. 9 Penn State, and scored six or more goals in a game twice.

Fennessy is a fifth-year senior who earned first team All-CAA honors in 2013 after starting 17 games. His 12 caused turnovers were second on the team, and he scored his first career goal against St. Joseph’s. The Yorktown Heights, N.Y. product has been a mainstay on the Tiger defense and has earned conference accolades each year in his career.

A second team All-CAA honoree, Hodgson started all 18 games in 2013 and led the team with 43 ground balls. He was second on the team in goals (27) and third in assists (14). Hodgson scored the game-winner in the CAA semifinals against Drexel and had a hat trick at No. 3 Ohio State in the first round of the NCAA Tournament.

Towson Lacrosse finished 10-8 overall and 4-2 in the CAA. The Tigers won their first CAA title since 2005 and made their first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2007.
