HANOVER, N.H – Head coach Andrew Towers has announced a quintet of upperclassmen who will serve as team captains for the 2014 season.
“Each of these young men bring something unique and different to this year’s team, but all bring a relentless pursuit of excellence and tremendous leadership qualities. I’m very excited about what this group can do for us,” Towers said.
Resch, who missed a majority of last season with an injury, enters his second consecutive year as a captain while the other four take on the responsibilities for the first time.
A year ago, Clemmenson anchored a Dartmouth defense that allowed 10.5 goals per game. The Farmington, Conn., native also caused a team-best 22 turnovers while scooping 23 groundballs and adding a goal.
Rotanz is the top returning goal scorer for the team from the Upper Valley. In 2013, he netted 12 goals, a mark that was third-best on the team, and dished out five assists. His best game during his junior campaign came versus Holy Cross when he registered a hat trick.
Hession had a breakout season for the Big Green last year setting the single season program record with 94 groundballs. He went 129-273 on faceoffs and had seven points (5g-2a). Hession also won the team’s Dud Hendrick Award and Blue Collar Awards.
Osgood appeared in all 14 games as a sophomore, including 10 starts. Picked up his first collegiate point against Robert Morris in a non-conference victory. He was second on the team with 63 ground balls and ranked third on the squad with 17 caused turnovers.
