Waltham, Mass. – Julian Stewart (Acton, Mass./Acton-Boxboro), Alec Foster (Wayland, Mass./Wayland) and Adam Watkins (McConnells, S.C./Clover) will serve as captains of the Bentley men's soccer team for the 2019 season, head coach Gary Crompton announced.
The trio were voted on by their teammates, Crompton revealed, and will take over from David Price and Kevin Williams, captains this past season, for spring workouts and into the fall for the 2019 campaign.
Stewart and Foster will both be going into their senior years, while Watkins will be going into his junior year.
"I am excited for our newly elected captains, they are all excellent student-athletes who work very hard both on the playing field and in the classroom," Crompton said. "To be elected by teammates is a tribute to their influence in our program and demonstrates the respect that each has earned amongst their peers and the coaching staff. I look forward to working with each of them to help get us back in the playoffs next fall."
Stewart will be going into his third season at Bentley after transferring from UMass-Lowell. He's led the team in goals in each of his first two seasons, including a nine goal tally in 2017 that saw him earn 2nd team All-NE10 honors. That season he also had two goals and one assist during Bentley's run to the NE10 finals, and was named to the All-Championship team as well.
Foster has played in 33 matches with 17 starts in his Bentley career. He scored two goals last season, and scored a big goal in the team's run to the 2017 finals when he netted the go-ahead goal in the regular season finale against Le Moyne, which clinched a playoff spot.
Watkins, a center back, has started every match Bentley has played in his first two seasons. He started all 19 matches and led the team in minutes played as a freshman, and capped it off by being named to the NE10 All-Rookie team. This past season, he again started every match and led the squad in minutes played.
