“Ultimate team guys.” “Hard workers.” “Hold teammates accountable.”
These are just some of the descriptors used by coaches and teammates of 2015-16 University of Notre Dame baseball co-captains James Nevant (pronounced nuh-VANT) and Lane Richards, who were recently voted into the role by their teammates.
“It’s important to note that James and Lane were selected captains by their peers,” said sixth-year head coach Mik Aoki. “The guys in the locker room know who they want as their leaders, and James and Lane do it the right way. They are phenomenal about going about their business. They are hard workers and ultimate team guys. They do well in the classroom and are active in community service. They are really good examples of what it means to be a Notre Dame baseball player.”
