"First of all, I'm excited and looking forward to rejoining the Bayhawks for the upcoming season," Kaleikau said. "As for being the organization's first pick, it is quite an honor. When you look at some of the names in the draft and especially the players who the Bayhawks selected, I'm proud to know that I showed Coach [Dave] Cottle enough last summer to reselect me with the first pick. I'll continue to work hard this offseason and hopefully get the opportunity to help the team win games this summer."
With the 24th overall pick, the Bayhawks selected another former Delaware standout, midfielder Brett Manney (Delaware '08). Manney played three games for Chesapeake in 2011, totaling five ground balls. He is currently playing in the National League Lacrosse for the Philadelphia Wings.
Legendary attackman Casey Powell (Syracuse '98), who announced in August that he was retiring from Major League Lacrosse, was selected with the 32nd pick overall by the Bayhawks. Powell, a four-time All-American at Syracuse, is one of the most decorated players in NCAA and MLL history, in addition to being the all-time leading scorer in MLL history.
One of the few defensive picks by Chesapeake came with the 35th overall selection of Mark Staines (North Carolina '12). Staines was drafted 32nd overall in the 2012 Collegiate Draft by the Boston Cannons, and while the rookie did not play for the Cannons, he was the No. 1 long-stick defensive midfielder at North Carolina and a three-time letter-winner.
With the 36th overall pick, the Bayhawks drafted Jamie Lincoln (Hofstra '11). An Ontario native, Lincoln played in 17 games for the Colorado Mammoth of the NLL in 2012, tallying 27 goals and 20 assists for 47 points.
Three picks later, Chesapeake selected the first of two goalies, Bruce Bickford (Drexel '08). Goalie Joe Marra (Fairfield '10) was then drafted with the 57th overall pick. Bickford spent two seasons on the Boston Cannon's practice squad and played in one game last season with three saves. Marra played four games for the Hamilton Nationals in 2011 and was then drafted to the Charlotte Hounds in the 2012 expansion draft. He played five games for the Hounds boasting 43 saves for a .566 save percentage.
With the 47th and 48th picks, the Bayhawks selected midfielder Tony Mendes and attackman Dan Hardy, respectively. For the Bayhawks' pick at No. 56 overall, Cottle drafted midfielder Chris Schiller and immediately afterward traded Schiller to the Hounds in exchange for their seventh-round pick in the 2014 MLL Collegiate Draft.
The Bayhawks claimed attackman Neal Hicks (Notre Dame '10) with the 64th pick. Hicks was a member of the Bayhawks practice squad in 2012 and was originally picked up by Chesapeake in the 2011 supplemental draft. Midfielder Zach Angel (Georgetown '12) was drafted with the 72nd pick and midfielder Josh Simms (Princeton '00) with the 80th pick. Simms played for the Bayhawks from 2001 to 2005 and was seventh all-time in total points and eighth all-time in goals for the Bayhawks franchise.
To conclude the draft, Chesapeake selected faceoff specialist Dalton (Loyola '12) and midfielder Chris Hunt with the 88th and 96th picks respectively. Dalton was a member of the 2012 NCAA championship Greyhounds team, and Hunt played for the Bayhawks in 2012.
