•Johns Hopkins freshman attackman Wells Stanwick (Boys' Latin) is battling a hand injury suffered in the middle of last week as the Blue Jays were preparing for their game at Princeton. He has missed the past two games and is not practicing.
Hopkins does not release injury information to the media, and the only confirmation Inside Lacrosse received from the school was that the injury is not season-ending.
According to a source close to the program, Stanwick is day-to-day and is not expected to miss an extended period of time.
•Terps defenseman Casey Ikeda has yet to play for Maryland this season, and it's unclear when he'll be back, though coach John Tillman told Inside Lacrosse after the Terps' win over Duke that Ikeda would return "soon."
"There is no timetable for Casey right now," said the team's spokesman, Patrick Fischer.
Ikeda missed all of last season after offseason shoulder surgery, making this year his redshirt freshman year. The Terps' defensive unit is currently composed of sophomore Michael Ehrhardt (10 ground balls, seven caused turnovers), freshman Goran Murray (five ground balls, three caused turnovers) and sophomore Brian Cooper (10 ground balls, eight caused turnovers), an Archbishop Spalding alumnus who is a converted midfielder.
•Navy longstick midfielder Pat Kiernan is playing left-handed after an injury to his right hand that caused him to miss two games. The Midshipmen take on Lafayette on Saturday.
•North Carolina coach Joe Breschi said attackman Nicky Galasso has been easing into play over the past 10 days, during which the Tar Heels have lost to Lehigh and Penn. The sophomore standout has played sparingly after offseason foot surgery and has yet to register a point, taking three shots and committing four turnovers.
"We're following what the doctors have requested — that he ease into playing," Breschi said Thursday morning. "With a foot injury, it takes a bit longer from a conditioning standpoint, so we're not trying to overdo it early."
The Tar Heels coach said he plans to use Galasso the same way against Princeton this weekend.
Duke midfielder David Lawson is considered day-to-day, according to the university's athletic department. "There is no timetable for Dave Lawson's return," team spokeswoman Meredith Rieder said. Classmate Jake Tripucka filled in for Lawson but didn't record a point in the Blue Devils' 10-7 loss at Maryland on Saturday.
•Bucknell coach Frank Fedorjaka expects Charlie Streep to be back by the end of the month. Streep suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the fall, forcing him to miss both fall ball and the beginning of this season.
Nick Doyle, class of 2013, has orally committed to Ohio State. Also a soccer player, Doyle made varsity last season and played for Greene Turtle and Poe club teams last summer. In addition, he attended Jake Reed's Nike Blue Chip sophomore and junior camps.
The initial Under Armour/Inside Lacrosse Top 25 rankings were released this week with a Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association flair.

Interstate Athletic Conference schools Landon (10) and Georgetown Prep (12) also made the initial rankings.Copyright © 2015, The Baltimore Sun
