Capistrano Valley High School head coach Jim Gerbershagen has announced that seniors Sam Slobom and Blake Berk will lead the Cougars as this year’s captains.
Slobom will be playing his third year of varsity lacrosse in 2015. He was a second team all league midfielder in 2014. Having been recruited to play lacrosse at Aurora University in Aurora, Illinois, Sam will be majoring in Exercise Science. Coach Gerbershagen: “Sam is a returning starter at midfield and nobody works harder on his game. He sets a good example for his teammates about working to improve year round and always competing on the field.”
Berk is a 4-year varsity starter at Capo. He was first team all Sea View league attackman last year. He plans to major in mechanical engineering but has not selected a college yet. Coach Gerbershagen: “Blake has been a varsity captain since his sophomore year, which speaks to his talent and leadership skills on and off the field. Blake is the consummate student athlete.”
