First-year baseball head coach Adrian Abrahamowicz has announced that seniors Phil Brua, of Avon, Brandon Cantrill, of Western Reserve, and Grady Campion will serve as team captains for the upcoming season.

"All three of these guys display the leadership qualities and work ethic to guide our team in the right direction," Abrhamowicz said. "I fully expect them to be positive influences on everyone in and around our program."

The Yeomen, who are coming off the best season in school history, return eight seniors who are poised to lead the team to its first-ever NCAC Tournament appearance.

Brua, who was a First-Team All-NCAC selection and Third-Team Great Lakes Region honoree, was simply dominant on the mound for the Yeomen in 2010. Brua set the school record for saves in a season (six) and tied the Oberlin mark for wins with a record of 6-3.

Cantrill was only one of two players to start in all 37 games last season. As the Yeomen’s main catcher he finished second on the team with a .328 batting average. He led the team with four home runs, while finishing second in slugging percentage (.543) and hits (38).

The Yeomen will begin their season on March 5 at Transylvania.
