Inside Lacrosse: News and notes across the nation

March 10, 2011

Across the nation

-Princeton sophomore Rob Castelo, a starting defenseman, left the Tigers' win against Hopkins last weekend in the second quarter with a knee injury. At the time, coach Chris Bates said the injury "didn't look good." He is not likely to play Friday against North Carolina. He will likely be replaced by junior Mike Flanagan (Georgetown Prep) or junior Jonathan Meyers.

-Also, Princeton attackman Jack McBride, who did not play against Hopkins on Friday with a groin injury, will be a game-time decision against North Carolina.

-Cornell starters Max Feely, David Lau and Steve Mock all could miss Saturday's Konica Minolta Face-Off Classic matchup against Virginia. All three missed the Big Red's upset loss to Army with unspecified injuries. Cornell's sports information director Julie Greco said Thursday, "we are preparing to play without them."

-Virginia has appeared in the Konica Minolta Face-Off Classic three times, defeating Syracuse in 2007 (11-8) and 2008 (14-13 OT). UVa is also 4-0 all-time in events hosted by Inside Lacrosse after spending the past two seasons as participants in the Big City Classic.

High school/Recruiting

-Nine MIAA players were named to the Maryland State Lacrosse Coaches Association Preseason First All-State Team. They are: Boys' Latin's Wells Stanwick and Taylor Stothoff; St. Paul's Taylor Michel and Gunnar Waldt; Logan Connelly from St. Mary's; Gilman's Ryan Tucker and Robby Haus; McDonogh's Keegan Michel; and Severn's Brett Bedard. The coaches' organization is responsible for picking the Kelly Award, given to the year's best high school lacrosse player in Maryland.

- T.J. Neubauer, a junior at Loyola, has verbally committed to Fairfield. The 5'10, 180-pound athletic midfielder put up 16 goals and 4 assists for the Dons last spring. Neubauer has a strong lacrosse IQ and dodges the alleys well. He plays for Team Lax World with classmate Conor Dalton, a fellow Fairfield commit. Neubauer also considered Johns Hopkins, Villanova, Georgetown and Towson.
