DURHAM, N.H.-- Josh Willman, head coach of the University of New Hampshire women's swimming and diving team, announced Wednesday that Amanda Paul (Reston, Va.), Michelle Kellerman (East Providence, R.I.) and Melissa Lague (Salem, N.H.) will all serve as senior captains for the Wildcats in the 2004-05 season.
Paul, a sprinter and middle distance freestyler, is one of UNH's top performers. A member of four school-record-holding relay squads, she was an America East runner up in the 200 yard freestyle and was a member of three winning relays at the ECAC Championships in 2004. Kellerman, a distance specialist, has placed in the top three in the 1650 free for the Wildcats at the America East Championships.
Finally, rounding out the trio is Lague, who holds three individual school records in the 100 and 200 backstroke and the 200 individual medley. Lague also holds the conference record in the 100 backstroke and is currently ranked in the top 35 in the nation in the 200 backstroke.
"The combined experience of these three captains will help give our young team just what we need to succeed next year," Willman said. "We have one of our largest and most talented incoming freshmen classes ever this fall and we are really counting on these women to set the tone for the season."
