ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Sophomore goalie Gerald Logan (Wading River, N.Y./Hotchkiss School) of the University of Michigan men's lacrosse team will miss the 2014 season with a shoulder labrum tear that required surgery, the squad announced today (Friday, Jan. 10).
Last season, Logan was selected to the All-ECAC Rookie Team and was named the team's MVP. Logan was No. 2 in the NCAA with 211 saves and ended his freshman campaign averaging 15-plus saves per contest. He recorded double-digit stops in 13 of 14 contests and stopped at least 15 shots in nine games. Logan compiled a 56.3 save percentage, faced 565 shots, and led the team with 36 ground balls.
His program-record 25 saves against Army on March 2 tied the NCAA season high for saves in a single game.
U-M has a pair of goalkeepers expected to fill the void in 2014. Highly touted true freshman Robbie Zonino (Berwyn, Pa./Conestoga), who was ranked as the No. 8 freshman goalie in the country by Inside Lacrosse, is the projected starter heading into the 2014 season. Also on the roster is sophomore goalkeeper Mike D'Alessio (Eastchester, N.Y./The Hackley School), who did not see game action last season."We're obviously going to miss Gerald on the field this season, but our first priority is always the long-term health and welfare of our student-athletes. We expect him back to 100 percent by next fall," said head coach John Paul. "We have full confidence in Robbie as our starter. He had a great fall where he gained valuable experience against Notre Dame, and he has been preparing himself for this role for a few months now."
The Wolverines will open the 2014 season with an exhibition contest against Marquette in Oosterbaan Field House on Saturday (Feb. 1) at 1 p.m.
