March 31, 2011

• Cornell attackman Rob Pannell is expected to play against Dartmouth on Saturday after injuring his shoulder against Penn last week, team spokesperson Julie Greco said. He left the game for about 10 minutes but returned in the second half of the Big Red's win.

• Bucknell midfielder/attackman Billy Eisenreich is expected to miss one or two weeks after a shoulder injury. He hurt it against Lafayette on March 19 and did not play this week against Penn State. Eisenreich missed most of the fall recovering from shoulder surgery.

• Army enters the game against Colgate on Saturday with a huge question about senior Bill Henderson, a four-year starting defenseman and rare two-time team captain. He has missed five games with an illness and coach Joe Alberici said he is "50-50" to play against the Raiders.

• • Injury woes are continuing for Princeton, which lost starting freshman Nick Fernandez to a broken arm against Yale on Saturday. He will be out for the season. Any Ivy League source has said that Jack McBride will miss the remainder of the season. He has played sparingly this season with a groin injury. Princeton spokesman Jerry Price said an announcement about his status is imminent.

• St. John's backup goalie Danny McQuillian has a unique perspective heading into this weekend's Big City Classic matchup against Rutgers. The freshman is living in a seminary training to be a Catholic priest while playing for the Red Storm. He had originally enrolled at Belmont Abbey, but decided in the summer to go to St. John's to take part in its seminary program. "I'm sure God is callling me to this. At this point I'm surrendering myself, and I'm going to do whatever God wants me to do," McQulllian said.

• Major League Lacrosse's newest team in Charlotte, which will begin play in 2012 is using social media to name the team. The team president has posted a letter on its Facebook page offering fans the chance to name the team. The team is taking suggestions via Facebook and narrowing the selections down through voting. The unveiling of the name will be streamed live online.

• Gilman was knocked out of the Under Armour/Inside Lacrosse top 25 rankings after losses to Georgetown Prep and St. Mary's (16). Boys' Latin fell from No. 5 to 11 after a loss to Conestoga (Pa.). Calvert Hall, which was ranked No. 11, moved up to sixth after beating Loyola (unranked) and St. Paul's (12).
