North Adams, MA- The MCLA Men's Soccer program has announced their three captains as they prepare for the upcoming 2017 season. Stepping into the leadership role as announced by head coach Adam Hildabrand are seniors Joe Tavella and Oscar Castro, along with junior Khalil Kareh.
Castro and Kareh appeared in all 17 games last season for Hildabrand. Castro played on the attack and tallied a goal and an assist in his appearances. Kareh played in the midfield notching one assist on the season, but added some size and toughness for the Trailblazers.
Tavella helped anchor the defense and appeared in 8 games. He missed some time due to injury in 2016, but is poised to be a stalwart and leader of the back line as a senior.
The Trailblazers have started preparations for the season with practices underway. Following a pair of scrimmages, MCLA will host Becker College on Friday, September 1st at 6pm in the season opener.
