BURLINGTON, Vt. – University of Vermont men’s lacrosse senior attackman Cam Milligan has been named a captain for the 2017 season. Head coach Chris Feifs made the announcement on Monday.
A native of Peterborough, Ontario, Milligan joins fellow captains Ben Cox, Hayden Jenkins, Ian MacKay and James Leary in leading the squad.
He appeared in 16 games a year ago, logging 15 starts in the process. Tallying 30 goals, he dished out 26 helpers last season to finish with 56 points which was second on the team. Milligan is a two-time America East All-Tournament Team honoree (2015-16) and also took home All-Conference Second Team laurels in both 2015 and 2016. Earlier this month, he was recognized as a member of the Inside Lacrosse America East Preseason All-Conference Team.
In last season’s America East Semifinals against No. 14 Stony Brook, Milligan’s goal with 3:26 remaining ultimately proved to be the game-winner and propelled the Catamounts to their first appearance in the America East Championship.
The human development & family studies major has registered 64 assists since first donning the Green and Gold in 2015, sitting sixth in the UVM record book in that category. He needs just one more to tie Tim Shannehan (1988-91) for fifth in program history.
UVM opens the regular season, its first guided by Feifs, on Thursday (Feb. 2) with a 5 p.m. game at Furman.
